both brand new, can get the Crystals for 75 less then the CDT's. Will be powering either set with power acoustik ts960 bridged @ 250x2 @ 4 ohms. Probably doesnt give that much power, but im sure its in the 200 w neighborhood. Which set would you choose and why.

Power Acoustik has been a preferred brand for 24 years and counting! Few manufacturers can match our aftermarket market expertise. The key to our success is to design and engineer products that meet the needs of the consumers in the United States and all over the world!
Many manufacturers attempt to build products that will appeal to the worldwide market place to cut costs by building only one platform, we believe the trade offs are far to high to consider. We would rather design products to fit the needs of each country rather than a single platform that falls short of your expectations.

Look at the audio products we sell today versus those from five years ago, we chose then to offer high cosmetic content as well as audio performance. Today the customer is asking for more moderate priced goods with even
higher performance standards, but that can be easily stealth mounted out of sight. Your focus has changed to car entertainment systems with video central theme, however the system has to give you the bone rattling theater
experience you would get at the movies. We are one of the only reasonably priced total solution companies you can turn to with confidence noting our past performance and reputation for quality.
We are driven by one guiding set of principals: Quality, innovation, engineering, performance, ergonomics, and value will always bring you back to us as the brand of choice!


If you need more info, let me know

No really, I may have the Crystal models confused, but $75 difference sounds like you are either getting a good price on the HD's are a bad price on the Crystals. What are the actual prices? Are you talking new?

Well, if it was me, I would go with the HD's. I have ran a set of the CDT EF's and I have been pleased with them, especially for the price. I have ran them about 18 months without any problems at all. I like the sound -- not harsh with no distortion that I have noticed.

And from what I have read the HD's are much better than the EF's.

The HD-62 is a great set... Unless you need to save some cash I think you will love the sound.
