    Hello Mr. Marv, this is Luke. We spoke for a while on the phone yesterday (Mon. 10/05), I learned alot from you. You recommended hybrid audio speakers and the 13TW5 sub for what I am looking to accomplish. I started doing some research on these items. So far I can say that I am very pleased with the reviews of the 13TW5 sub. I could not find much if any reviews on the speakers. If you have some time, I was wondering if you could clarify a few things for me:

    -What is the difference between the Clarus series and the Legatia series? I couldn't seem to figure out what they are, or which ones I would be installing.
    -Which amps would you say to use with the speakers and the sub? Model numbers?
    -Could you give me a price break down on everything we talked about (front speakers, rear speakers, baffels, sub, box, amp rack, amps)? model numbers would be great.
    - Is there any other speaker-sub-amp combinations you would recommend for me to acomplish what I am looking for?

    Forgive me for all the questions. As you know I'm new to car audio, and I wanted to do more research some reviews on the items I might be spending my money on. Also I wanted to learn more about these items. Thank you so much for your help. You are a great person to learn from.

    Hey Luke, I think I answered most of this on the phone but if I missed anything give me a call back (I don't type wll and still having problems with my neck/shoulder!)
    To keep it short I'll say I typically I recommend the Clarus line for the less experienced who are setting up "simple systems" using passive crossovers yet wanting SUPERB sound quality. I'm surprised you can't find reviews as most that call me wanting to buy them tell me all the great things they have read! I'll quote the magazine review I mentioned below (this is the review I read that had me buy/try a set and after I heard them I called Hybrid to ask if I could be a dealer!) and maybe some of the guys here who have used them will comment. )

    Thank you for taking the time to find this review. Very impressive one.

    -Would you be able to tell me which speakers I would be gettin (front, rear) along with what I would be paying to get these from you?
    -Which amps would you recommend to drive the speakers and the 13tw5?

    I wanted to know the prices of the individual items. You can PM me those if you'd rather do that.
