    What do people in the know think of these?

    http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/1442.html

    I have no idea when it comes to ICE but i want it to be shit-hot once i've started.

    Ignoring the price, how good are these? (i've not lost my mind, they're only about £250 from the US that's all ) I've heard nothing but good things about MB Quart, and these are their signature line components.

    I want awesome quality rather than massive volume. Can anyone shed any light?

    It's all about the JL Audio ZRs!!

    Oh and you'll regret importing them from the states even if it does save a shed load of cash. You're always better buying this stuff from AUTHORISED uk dealers.

    Still waiting for the page to open but if they are anything like my MB Quartz (QM218.61) you won't be dissapointed

    The volume and quality of them is unbelieveable

    you will need 4 channels, 1 per speaker. RMS of the amp needs to be at least that of the speaker, ideally a little higher.

    The QSD's are excellent speakers very tonally clinical and to my ears the tweeters are a bit bright, hence I always tend to go for Silk dome tweeters. But it really depends on how you like your music TBH.

    I would get down to a store and listen to a few makes. If you cannot find a mbquart dealer than listen to the likes of Focal utopia's or the Diamond Audio hex's as tonally they are very similar.

    Now a word of warning the corssovers are huge on the QSD's so think carefully about where you will be placing these.

    As for buying in the us or uk it is always preferable to buy from the uk, but if you are certain that the store is reputable and you are happy to pay carriage costs to send the items back in case of problems the either will do.

    Oh and the amp does not need to be the same RMS rating as the speakers or ideally higher, it is all down to the quality of the amp and its ability to deliver. The general rule is 60% of the RMS rating tends to be fine if using partnering equipment of equivalent quality.

    But and here is the biggest but with the QSD's they are burtal at exposing poor partnering equipment and music so you will need top notch amps. In my experience the Genesis Range amps, Sinfoni, Soundstream rubicon and human reign, Diamond audio D6 upwards, JL Audio (300-4 or 450-4), Brax or helix, DLS, Boston Acoustics or probalby one of the best matchs are MB quart own amps.

    Get one of those with say Stinger, streetwires, JL audio, Schosce EFX wiring and away you go. And lastly do not skimp on the headunit.

    ok how about two pairs of these speakers or equivalent, powered by one of the amps suggested. What would anyones choice of subs be? ideally i want two 12"s.

    Initially i wanted Audiobahns, just cos they look so good but i've heard a lot of people sayin they're all show and no go. My next port of call would prob be MTX Thunder, cos these also look awesome!!! Wgat are people's opiions??
