JL Audio is top notch... even their entry level stuff sounds better than Kenwoods so called top level.
Ive always thought of Kenwood as junk from the beginning.. i have never owned anything by them and never will... Ive heard stuff at stereo comps... laughed after hearing the stuff.. cause its muddy and overly bright... no tonal range at all
hell, i would never buy stuff from best buy or circuit city cause all the stuff they have there is garbage... need to go to a specialty store...
JL Audio is good, although far overpriced for what they are... there are a lot of other options that will sound as good without the price tag.
Check out CDT and eD (elemental designs.. www.edesignaudio.com
) for excellent speakers without the "ooooo.... JL" tax. Some people really like Focal as well, might be worth giving a listen... I find them a bit harsh in the trebles for my tastes...
Anyways, the one piece of advice that I will agree with 100% from plazma is to avoid CC and places like that... go find yourself a good local car audio shop. Take along a CD you love and tour the different brands... different sets. See what sounds good to your ear.
I have never heard the CDTs... heard mixed things.. never sure until you really hear them.. but the eD stuff is good.. i have their 10 inch sub.... i was close to getting their 6500 comps over the XR650s from JL but i got a better deal on the JLs. The 6500s are like 250... from what i heard the ones below that arent worth a shit... only ones to use are the 6500s.
