    Current system: Alpine 7894, Infinity 5752cf + 652i in a Protege5

    Problem: System lacks overall smoothness and highs are very harsh. If I turn down treble on the HU then the sound lacks detail.

    Should I change my speakers? Lots of ppl are telling me that's the problem with these Infinity. My budget is $400 for now and I might invest more later next year. I prefer a warm and mellow sound with detail (but not harsh) highs.

    I would get another set of components and more importantly a powrful amp to bring out the potential of the speakers. For your budget, try the Crystal CSC60s components up front ($160) and a USX 2100 amp (100watts x 2, $140) and you should be good.

    Whatever you have in the back is ok for rear fill. Just fade most of the sound to the front.
