OK. I can't stand harsh highs from tweets. For reference I've owned some Alpine Type-S, Type-Rs, and Focal 2 way comps (they were the kevlar ones that were just under the Utopia line a few years ago).

The Type-Rs are the least fatiguing out of all of them. The Focals and the Type-Ss were both much too harsh for me.

What are some lines out there with very mellow highs?

I'm looking to spend somewhere around $200.

You've got one more Alpine set to try and they can be had for your stated budget....The Type X. Vifa XT ring radiator tweeters. They will put the Type S and R to shame.

Word, look at the OZ's as well. Also look for silk domed tweets.

Yes type X would be nice! You can also try Boston's or Polk Audio. Pure sweetness. Any of the three should get it done.

alpine type X set sounds awesome, hi's much smoother than all the other sets.

I've just recently found that out. In my experience metal tweet sare always harsh. I wish it didn't take so much money spent to come to that conclusion, but that's how we learn I guess.

Thanks guys, the Type-Xs are looking good. I've always likes that Vifa, it's teh ***.

What should I look at in the 200 price range from CDT?

I've never heard a lot about this company, anyone here have some?

The CL-61 is in my range, are these the ones to get?

i am using the first set with the upgraded tw25 tweeters and they sound awesome :yumyum:

Advantages of 3 way over 2 way if any?

10-10-2006, 05:29 PM
I believe the Ascendant Audio set also uses the Vifa ring radiator tweeter.

Crystal SSCS6 6.5" Set.

I checked out CDT's lineup and there are way too many to choose from. What's the best one for $200?

The EF-61FG is the "best seller" at woofersetc. Are these the best set for the money?

There are 3 different EF speakers all at the same price.

61, 61FG, and 61CF, which should I get?

10-11-2006, 02:55 AM
EF-61: normal treated paper cones
EF-61FG: Fibeglass cones
EF-61CF: Carbon Fiber cones

I'd go with the carbon fiber:yumyum:

Yeah the carbon fiber cones are dead ****.

I've pretty much decided on some EF-61s, if they are semi harsh tweeters I'm gonna find all of your addresses and pimp slap you all Jay and Silent Bob style :)

CF is often the set i sell more of. I would actually say the HD's are the most popular but may be a little higher in the price range. PM me about the component sets and I'll see what price I can get for you. Also whoever asked about the website, I'm not too sure as sometimes its ok and other times not, I think i fixed it but alot of it comes down to the browser and how it loads the pics and personal settings. I don't use it too much as its more a point of reference but 90% of what I do is word of mouth.

Anyways, the EF-CFs are quite nice and they are ****, also I can see what kind of price I can do you for the HD's, just PM me though.
