    Default MMC6500 vs DB6501

    I currently have db's but got a good deal on MMC (momo) and wanna install them instead of dbs. Nothing is wrong with dbs but momos are a step higher ont he list so maybe i'll get even better sound from them.

    According to a bunch of reviews momos are really good in midbass/midrange area but tweeters are just too ruff even when set on minimum.

    So did someone here have both of these comps and can gimme a side-to-side comparrision? If not a few more reviews wouln't hurt either :)

    Also, if momo's tweets ARE too ruff can i simply replace them with db? Keep in mind that momo's x-over will be used. Specs for momo and dbs differ a bit:
    92db for dbs - 90db for momos
    100W for dbs - 125W for momos

    I ran the mmc6500 for 3 years and loved them. Eventually they will go into my wife's car (if she ever lets me touch it). The momo's might have lower efficiency, but they pack a lot more punch than the db's do.

    From what my ears could tell, the tweets are very similar. I wouldn't see a purpose for replacing them with the db tweet. I ran the coax db's in my car for a while and thought they were much too bright. I looked at the comps and listened to them frequently, but couldn't ever see a purpose to upgrade to them when for "a little more" I could save and get the momos. The momos can tend to be a little bright, but they bring better midrange to the equation that helps tone it down some.

    I quess i'll just have to install them and see for myself.

    Is there a break-in period for mmc6500? Or should i expect them to sound the same as they will the first day or two?

    I would wait and see if you could get some used SR6500's instead - a much greater upgrade. :)

    I have toyed with the idea, but honestly, I don't think I could find speakers as good as what I would sell them for, so I keep them. Like I was saying in another post, they will eventually go in the car I drive now and the current setup would go in the new car.

    It's also a pain to think of them changing owners :o
