Lotus Reference.
I've tried high end Quart stuff, Morel Elate, PG Ti Elite and the Dyn's. None of them had the balance I was looking for.
The Quarts had incredible midrange and a harsh tweeter, no mid/bass
The Elate had a layed back presents, smooth mids and highs. Very similar to the Dyn's. Guess I like a bit more foreward lower mid.
The Ti Elite's were fine at lower volumes then fell off the edge when pushed.
Take a listen. If you like them, that's all that matters.

I like a bit more foreward lower mid.

I have never heard that term before.    ANYWAYS, along with DYohn's question on budget...what are you going to power them with?

My budget would be about $200. I was planning on getting the infinity kappa 60.7cs component set....I found those for about $195, shipping included. I will be powering them with a JL Audio 300/4.
I just want some opinions on what you guys think are better than those components at about the same price, or less if possible.

You're not going to find better under $200, imo.
With that budget it is hard to start getting too specific on the subjective variables (i.e., forward midrange, etc.).
Have you listened to the Infinity components, or are you buying blind?

I've listened to them, my friend has that set in his car. I think the high end might be a little too strong though. I'm thinking maybe I can eq it out.....maybe.

hemanjoyman: What I would do is ask what brands make good quality components. After that, take that list and listen, listen, listen. Everyone here will have a different opinion due to how they like their mids and highs to sound. No amount of advice can take the place of listening and taking note of what sounds best to you. As long as you follow the advise given on quality brands, you will have the best setup for "you" IMO.

i have Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1s and i too thought the tweeters were a bit bright so i just turned them more towards me and changed the tweeter level in the crossover to -4 and turned up the treble just a hair on my head unit. works great for me.
i just figure when i add in my sub i'll change it back to zero for the extra brightness and it will somewhat cancel out with all the bass and seem normal.
