Hey all! I have a pair of Infinity Kappa 652.5i 2-ways and a pair of CDT HD-62 components lying around from my previous cars. I just bought a 99 Corolla and I'd like to throw a pair of these in the car. I will be amping them, but if I go with the components, I WILL NOT be using the tweeters because I don't want to make any holes in this car (my uncle paid for half of it). Anyways, I will sell off the pair that I dont use.

You guys think I should just throw the Kappas in there and sell off the CDT components? Or put in the CDTs, keep the tweeters/crossover around, and sell the Kappas?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks! :up2somet:

kappas...

if you use the tweeters cdt hands down.. but since you're just using the mid.. i would run the coaxials..

So, if you went with the components, what would you use for the higher frequencies ??


And you do realize it takes all of about 10 minutes and a little ingenuity to build a tweeter bridge for the comp set, so that the tweeter is mounted "co-axially" with the mid? No hole cutting would be necessary.

Or you can use the tweeter pods that came with them and velcrow them where you want them ;)

yeah that would make me lean toward the cdt's or boston acoustics pros. imo the pro's have such a great sound to them

I'm sorry, what is a tweeter bridge? I've searched around and have seen it mentioned elsewhere, but no explanations. Also, lets say I were to sell off the CDT's...whats a fair price? They were in my truck for only 4 months (I only had the truck for 6 months before I sold it). I still have the tweeters and crossovers along with the box. Everything is in pristine condition.

Model: HD-62
6.5" 2-way
Midrange: 6.5" Cast
Crossover: SatNet-560i "Transient Optimized" Elliptic 4th order 2-way
Tweeter: 1" silk soft dome
Power handling: 175 watt RMS
Frequency response: 55-20kHz
Sensitivity: 92.6 dB.
Impedance: 4 Ohm
Surface & flush mount tweeter

Are there any instructions on building this somewhere on this forum? Sorry for being a pain, but I cant find anything relevant.

Probly not, you really have 2 options. Buy a pair (CDT sells them) or make some out of 1/4 or equivlent MDF.
Honestly though the velcrow will work perfectly.

Or metal stock or metal strips that you can find at home depot.

This is where the "ingeniuty" part comes in :)

Definatly.




To original poster...

I have owned a pair of kappa perfects, I currently own the HD-62 set...go with the CDTs. Much smoother tweet, better x-overs, and the mids sound amazing with 150rms on them. I truly beleive that they are a better set then the infinitys.
