volfenhagepoo is pretty much the same as pyle pyramid, boss, etc pretty much cheap and junky,

hope i dont offend you or anyone else but they are pretty much on the bottom, although if your on a budget they will make sound :(

yeah, sure... but just one size... it might take a minute... I'm listening to my full-range 8" Fostex Sigma full ranges and I just popped in my Queen greatest hits CD... it maybe a year or two...

Does Focal count? They are the absolute best in my book, but you could also check out Rainbow and Clif Designs.

I like MB Quart, i have their lowest line of coax's at the moment but heard their other models, and i like them. I have mb subs, which i have never seen anyone else have, and they sound great.
I also have/like SoundStream, their amps are awesome. I have a VanGogh 800.2 and it's pretty mean.

What would you (anyone) pick for the best component set for around 300$, with awesome specs and high power, at least 80rms. I will get an amp later to match.
I would like a 3 piece set, but probably a 2 for the money. I've been looking and i'm torn between focal, morel, mbquart, haven't looked at rainbow's, diamond's, or CDT's, and RE's, too much but have heard better about my first 3 choices.
I have cheap mb's already and like them, and my friend has references and they sound great for 200$. I might go with their Premium 6.5 set.

I'm looking for someone whom has HEARD THEMSELVES any set that fit my specs.

I found a site that has them, rawaudio.com
They're a little more than I want to spend, but i'm thinkin' of em
They don't post "english" sizes, does the "4,5,6" mean inches after the model, i'm sure it is, and I figure you'd know since you have the 6

Focal Access components are right up your alley. They handle 75 watts RMS, sound incredible, and are about $300 from a dealer. You won't be disappointed...

i went to www.rawaudio.com, but it took me to a search engine page.. anyways, yes, the 4 5 and 6 are the speaker sizes (4 inch, 5.25 inch, and 6.5 inch).

here's a link to their product line.. it doesnt have any prices, but it does have the info on each line of speakers they have:

Sorry the website is: http://www.rawaudio.com.au/shop/cata...ced_search.php
but they're insane expensive, their RE stuff, I looked at their subs, and I can get them from RE themself for about half the price these people want.

Thanks for the reference, I found a Focal poly-glass set on acaraudio.com for 299$. I'm not getting any yet, just looking for when I get a car and kill it with expensive audio equipment.
