CDT Audio EF-61FG vs. Boston Acoustic Pro 60's.


They are in about the same price range.



This is the amplifier I have to work with. I am currently running the amp as 4 channel, but if I get a set of comps that can take the abuse of 230 rms, then I will bridge the amp and run the rear speakers off the deck

Clarion ProAudio APA4320
http://www.cardomain.com/item/CLAAPA4320

Amplifier Type: Multi-Channel
RMS Power @ 4 Ohms: 80W x 4 @ 14.4V
THD at 4-Ohm RMS Power: 0.08 %
Bridged RMS Power @ 4 Ohms: 230W x 2 @ 14.4V
Speaker Level Inputs: yes
Preamp Outputs: no
Built-In Crossovers: HP/LP
Bass Boost: 0 - 15 dB
Frequency Response: 20-20,000 Hz
Signal to Noise Ratio: 100 dB
Fuse Rating: 2 x 25 amps

I am leaning towards the Boston Acoustics, because I know they are some of the best out there.

I'd say that it really comes down to preference. The CDTs will likely be a bit more mellow. The Bostons more lively. Depends on how you take your music. Though, if memory serves me right, the Bostons should cost significantly more than those CDTs. I would think the CDT ES ($300 from woofersetc.) would be a fairer comparison for the Pros.

Bostons will be purchased off of ebay and Woofers ect... has the CDT's for $199 w/ free shipping..


And im sorry, I forgot to add what kind of music I listen to. Thats important.. I listen to alot of rock. Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Disturbed, ect...

85% Rock
10% Rap
5% Country

Oh and I am on a budget.. Im getting a new sub box and 4 8's

My buddy is using the EF61fg's and the sound quality is awesome. also keep in mind that Cdt will be purchased authorized from Woofersetc so you will have what ever warranty Cdt offers, the bostons from ebay most likely have no warranty just in case that matters to you.
just my .02 cents

Personally, I like the Bostons better than anything in the CDT line, regardless of cost.

FG stand for Fiberglass and CF stand for carbon fiber. The Fiberglass i supposed to have a better midbass, more accurate, detailed mids and more durable material.
