Default Crescendo Mids and Highs

Is anybody running crescendo components?
If so how are they?
In comparison to JL and Focal how much different is the sound quality?

Thinking about it is pretty idiotic to compare sound quality with Focal and JL audio when they are all about SQ.

Just confused and tired right now, lol.
Just took a giant Calculous final.

I really want to know how they sound, haven't heard them yet.

I currently have C2 650s and just wondering if the crescendo components would sound any better than what I have now.

You need to look & listen to your options.

First off, look at the cone materials.

You want lightweight, rigid & acoustically dampened.

These combinations are what matter...

Here's a top secret chart for rigidity:

I've heard the Focal kevlar before, my uncle from California ran them in is Lexus is350.
He complimented the Focal kevlar with the Focal FPS 4160.

They sound absolutely amazing, but my budget for mids and highs are under $500.
Front and rear stage.

Ok. You've to a budget, now what's your goal.

My goal is to be loud while keeping sound quality.
Pretty broad, but that's my goal.

Is the $500 budget for an amp as well or just the mids and highs? Also I assume you are looking to just replace the current speakers in the OE locations.
