You might try posting your question on this UK forum.

There are members who have extensive experience with Rainbow. The downside is that they probably haven't as much experience with CDT.

The Rainbow site will show you the line-up:

The ones that are "on special" are the previous version to the ones pictured on the Rainbow site.

:moon:

Yes, the "special deal" (it's not my deal, it's Jason's deal) is for the older lines of Rainbows. The specs for these comps can be found on Speedsound.com..

If you want the new Rainbows, then contact your local Alumapro dealer. :p:

The SLC's take 80 watts RMS, as the rating on their box and woofer state.
I've never heard the CDTs, but I love the SLCs I have. Mid and highs are freakin' detailed, and midbass has some real authority, even without imaging.

CL-61, dls ms6, rainbow slc, and others all head to head. If u ask me they should have put the ef-61 set up against these but those cl's shocked me here lol. The cl's where the cheapest and the believe it or not the infinity set was the highest cost followed by the sony then lanzar.

I loved my CDT EF-61 CFi with the 1" tweets and 560's.

Off of 150 watts they were AWESOME!

i run a jl 300/2 to my rainbow 6.5" pros, and they take it with no prob. and to think the rms rating is only 'bout 80
