1999 VS Ute
Hey all,
I'm after another pair of splits for my VS ute.. Already have a set of Alpine 6.5" splits in the door, and am going to surface mount another set of splits..

I am stuck though.. I know I can buy a set of Precision Response speakers online as Jaycar doesn't sell their 6.5" splits anymore, and I know they sound great as a few of my mates have them, and i personaly think they sound better than the type R splits that I have..

But Jaycar sell Vifa 6.5" splits, and i've never heard them before.. Has anyone got these speakers and what do they think of them? And if possible, if you ould compare, would you say go Response splits or the Vifa ones?

Price difference is only 50 bucks..

Help much appreciated..

The Vifa's Jaycar sell are chinese knock-offs of the swedish vifa. I wouldn't give them the time of day personally.

The old Kevlar cone 6.5 response speakers were the go...I wouldn't touch much of the current range at all

How much are you looking to spend on a decent pair of splits?

$150-200 will get a nice pair of Morel Maximos or Crescendo Opus 1's....Both are in my opinion exceptional value for money.

Good Luck!

Id fish on the internet for the old response splits, wasn't planning to go any of their new stuff originally..

Good move!

I had a set of the response 6.5's originally - They were great sounding in terms of quality but you couldn't really push them in terms of volume.

What state are you in?

I found mine would make a nasty popping sound when you really turned them up. I was able to confirm that this was very common with them over on MEA.

At the time I had them in an EF Falcon, running from a pioneer headunit and a response 4x100 amp.....Back in my early days of car stereo!

Are they? I was about to say good things about the old (almost vintage) peerless/vifa speakers I built as a home theatre setup, but it might be a completely different kettle of fish
