Same price, and I nearly ordered the CDT's but everyone is on the Pioneers lately... Was planning on ~150/channel with the CDT's, but probally wouldn't want more than 100 with PRS's??

Those Pioneers look nice. I have not heard those before, but form the looks of them and what we know about Pioneer, I think you would be happy with your choice.

x2. Heard a lot about those pioneers. I believe they're on par w/ some Rainbows' comp sets that are around a slightly higher MSRP price. Great choice there!

Whats with this whole CDT bandawagon lately.

Those pioneers HANDS DOWN. Probably the best speaker they've ever made!

by far the best speakers they've made imo.

also i really don't know why people like cdt so much. It wasn't anything amazing to me. Also the highend cdt's use vifa mg speakers + huge price hike so if you want cdt, just go buy some vifa speakers and match it with a nice pair of tweets. that'll run you less than $180 for something cdt charges $700+.

We carry those premiers where I work. One of they guys who has worked there a long time installed a set and let us hear it and they were beautiful. Not overly tweetery like most of their speakers.

they are pretty efficient. I found that somewhere between 75-100 rms per side was the sweetspot. Very loud with little power. No complaints with them except the average passive x over that they use. That's why i run active :D

wow didn't know everyone would go with the pioneers...:eek:

I just haven't been able to find any stores around that have them so I can listen to them. I've listened to a range of focal's, MB Quart, and BA's... How would you compare them to something in those brands?

I think the prs720 will sound nicer than anything Quart makes. I like the 720 a bit more than the BostonPro60's also. Cannot comment on the Z6 though. Never was a huge fan of Focal.

I'm with you on Focal's...granted this was in a wall and a little underpowered, but the focal poly 3 ways and even the K2's this shop had didn't impress me. I liked the BA Pro60's much more in the same conditions.
