Default Hybrid Unity 6.5 vs Illusion Electra 6.5 vs Illusion Carbon C5

I posted this thread a little while ago but I think the title was all wrong. So, I am redirecting it to where I am at with choices.

My budget is $450 for a set of components for my vehicle. I would like to keep the weight and the parts spend low, as it is a lease. The only item I really have an idea on so far is the amp. I will be powering these with a Kenwood XR400-4. Should have about 150 watts per side available. Or I can go active / bi amp'ed on whatever will work with that setup.

I bought some Hybrid Imagine speakers years ago and loved them. But, the market has changed quite a bit. I felt they were a great value at the $200 I paid back then. The warm sound was great with plenty of detail on vocals like Fiona Apple's Tidal but a great midrange sound I loved. I was able to pick out the faint marimba present on many of her songs. I feel like they may lack a little without a sub, though.

Any thoughts on the above and suggestions on potential components? I believe the factory spot is a 6.5 or 8". Any advice on that arena would be great too.

The one's I am looking at are new Hybrid Unity @ 430 pair (6.5), New Illusion Electra @ 300 pair (6.5) or Used Illusion Carbon 400 pair from here:

I would be hard for me to go down a size if I didn't have to.

Do you think I will get better low end extension from those above the Hybrid Unity or Electra? Even though they are 5 inch not 6?

Also, a new element entered. Some Clarus C6 demos for 480. Hoping to get that price down into budget.

Thanks!

From these choices, I would go with the Illusion c5
However, what size speakers fit in that beauty? Crutchfield isnt up to date.
If you can give us speaker sizes, i think you could do better with raw drivers...
Audible Physics H6MB + a scan tweet would be killer.

I am not opposed to doing raw drivers. But, I would need some guidance on crossover points and relative gains.

I THINK and I really mean think, that the stock hole will fit an 8". I am not sure nor will I have the car for another week to even try to figure it out.

Yes crutchfield and all other websites don't have this car. Bummer.

I still have the crossovers from my C8 and C4 set that I would sell cheap. You could prob pair them with a lot of rare drivers if you are going to run passives.

I don't mind doing it either way. I have this idea in my head that midbass'es need more power than tweets. I don't know where it comes from. Just a look at the drivers I guess. So, I feel like 75W for the tweets would be a waste of power and that I should put 125W to the whole system (or 150w depending on how the Kenwood bridges) and let the midbass "use" that power. This is probably a very flawed perception of how the system works.

haha - Troy!! What's up! I hate bugging you with everything...

Now with these Clarus ones coming online, I am curious so see what the consensus is.

I wish I could just buy a new set of Carbons. Just out of the budget. Maybe some will pop up that are 6's on classifieds.

Then there's the whole raw drivers possibility. I am curious to see what folks have to say about that...
