Which are a good balance between cost & sound?

DSD
RSC
PSD?

Bender recommends DSD & PSD, but why not RSC?

How big a difference are the levels of sound between the speaker classes?

the reference probably better than the discus series, but those would be my two choices the rear speakers. to me reference isnt worth it for back, especially if you plan to ever add a sub(s).

well, first of all, you're a crazy bastard, but we knew that already...very nice on the 2 1/2 hours of sleep..who needs sleep anyway?

yeah, i'm waiting to hear the verdict too. trying to figure out if i should buy the dsd's, see how they sound up front with the current system, or buy the psd's and use my additional amp.. prob not much of a choice, since i have the amp and just need mike to install it, but i'll save a good $100 on the dsd's and YOU KNOW, if i add that extra amp, i'll have to buy 4 psd's and use them for all 4 channels..

by the way, just to confirm: if i buy the dsd's and mount them in the front doors, i can just swap those out for the psd's, right? both 7".. go to sleep!

ohhhh sh$t...he's ready to take my car apart...who is this guy, really?

seriously, i got no prob w/ that. grad school started up again this week, so it's mostly wkds for me, but i'm up for it anytime. i'll take the help for sure and would like to see what you've got..

when you see my personal install job, you may blow chunks, but that's ok..you & mike can fix it.. :)

that's cool - take your time, you know i appreciate it...just joining in the group pressure..."bender - help us!! now!!"

i won't do anything until you lookat the system..and then maybe we can both decide what the hell i should do. it's either adding an amp and s-l-o-w-l-y adding psd's or adding dsd's first..

btw - you have any hookups for mbq's? mike mentioned something about it the other day..

So no one thinks my idea of just using super dooper stong tape & stick the speaker to the top of the door panel is a good idea? We could get a lot more room top mounted right? And no screws!

Ok sorry, just thinking ahead.. im still on board with this whole pressuring Bender thing.....

really enjoyed the 'super dooper' phrase...if all else fails, right?

definitely all the way in for pressuring bender, although all he has to do is logoff and go to bed to avoid us.. :) also, i get the privelage of him tearing apart my car soon, so i have to be nice...

c'mon bender!!!!!
