Go for DLS if you have the money. Alpine PDX, JL HD, Kenwood KAC X4 all get loud but no BALLS! They don't have any impact on SQ.

BTW whats your budget for components if you get the DLS ?

Then you'll have 3 options.

1. Use the RA50 to drive the sub, front and rear speakers.
2. Use the RA 50 to bi amp (like the DLS Reference 6.3) and drive the front speakers and sub using the 1004 (bridged into 2 channels) to drive the rear.
3. bridge the RA 50 for front and sub and use the 1004 (bridged) for the rear.

But really I dont see why anyone needs more than 50W rms when the speakers (90db/w) are only 1 meter from your ears. 10W = 100db and you still have 7db of headroom. Then again I'm on the wrong side of 40. At 23-24 I used a pair of JBL B460 bass bins (2245 woofers) for my home audio's bass.

I do not know if Marantz is below or above your budget, but on the advice of reign of chaos, I bought that ampliflier in 2008, and it is simply great.

Hi Nitin,

You can also look at the Audison Lrx series amps. I am surprised nobody mentioned them here.

Chirag Hybrid's works best in active they are real power hungry drivers. With the kinda budget he has it's best to find drivers that have relatively higher sensitivity and are much efficient for it to work best in passive.

I doubt one can get sinfoni and mac amps even in 1000$. The budget he has is to get amps and comps under 1000$.

Nitin@ There are many choices that you can have here. Audison Lrx are great amps along with vrx which are on sale at woofersetc.com. But over above all, DLS ref makes more sense for the price you can get them. Make more sense to pick one of these compared to others at the same price. A slight better choice above this would be Zapco DC ref amps. Nothing beats them in their price range.

Is it so. I am on the lookout for the comps which have good midbass so if Alpine doesnt have it, then i might have to look somewhere else.
Franky, where are you? I need your advice on your Alpine's. Please respond.

you need not worry about the midbass from the alpines. there's lots of it there! just make sure they're crossed over right and blend right with the sub. i still haven't got mine right, and the sub is slightly out of sorts. next week, we have a new enclosure coming. no upgrades though ;-)

How would you compare Morel Dotech with Alpine SPX Pro? I mean i am looking for more of a good mid bass from the comps. So which one would be better?

I have not heard the new Morels the older ones were slightly lispy which was a bit irratiting on female voices.

I have been using Morel dotech since a year and half as well got the Hybrid ovation. Dotechs have a very clean vocals, midbass is good too as long as the you deaden the doors. The dotech midbass has a high Qts of 1.09 which makes them ideal for doors. Can deliver supreme performance if tuned properly and installed right.
The tweeter that comes with it is MT12 has a very good off axis response. Not harsh at all, very sweet sounding and detailed. overall they are much can sound real good for the price as long as the doors are well sealed. They do blend well with the sub or it could even be the other way around.
I swapped my MT12 tweeter with the hybrid tweeter MT22. A bit laid back but little more detailed much to my liking. But, there's one imp thing that one needs to keep in mind, Morel's are power hungry feed them with more power and they will really shine. Dotech will perform excellent if one feeds them with 150rms each if not the least they will need is 100rms each.

Alpines Spxpro are excellent too. Comes with ring radiator tweeter design which come play all the detail when installed on axis or 30,60 deg off-axis. haven't heard them but read lot reviews on these where tweeters are excellent. Midbass again can perform well as long as the installation is done right.
