Rainbow SLX 210 vs. L7 Speakers

How do the 2 speakers compare? I'm upgrading the front components on my HiFi system and I'm debating between the two speakers choices. Unfortunately there just aren't too many options for those trying to improve on a budget .

Would these make a big difference even if sticking with the L7 amp and everything else?

Technic stated once

That the rainbows were better I believe.
If you are doing a Hi Fi though you have to take into
account the originals are 2 ohm and better speakers
require more power . Something the Hi Fi amp is already
suffering from a lack of.

I think you need to improve the amp first.
L7 amp has more power so it might be better the BSW's
are designed for L7 power I believe.

On OEM amp power the BSWs may be the best option, but I hate how they make you buy the rears too since those do not make a meaningful contribution to the front stage...

Mb quart 3 way will work off the standard amp and sound fantastic. They are a perfect fit for the e9x and were designed for them. £430 for
Tweeters, mids and underseats and cross overs
