View Full Version : Recommendations on speakers

05-09-2007, 02:37 AM

I'm looking to upgrade my front components. I currently have CDT KA-61's powered by a Cadence Z800(150w/channel)

What I dont like about the CDT's is that they are very harsh to my ears. The sound does not sound "natural" it sounds "high pitched" to me. Also, they seem to distort easily at high volumes, though, i am overpowering them.

What I would like is a component set that sounds clear without being TOO bright, with good mid-bass. I'm looking into Dynaudio, as they seem like they will do this. any recommendations?

My budget is tight, and I know I wont get the best, but i'd like a huge improvement over the CDT KA-61's.. I'd like to keep them around 150$, but I can do 200$ max.

My head unit is a Pioneer DEH-P6800MP, i have no rear speakers, and one 400w sub.

Can anyone comment on the following:

Crystal SSCS-6

CDT CL-61A/TW-24

Phoenix Gold RSd 65cs

The RSD's are the cheapest of the bunch, how would they compare to the rest? i mean at a reasonably cheaper price how well do they compare?

On the flipside, the DLS' are the most expensive, how well are those. if they are indeed better, are they worth the extra cost?

Any of those sets would treat you right. I'd lean towards the Crystals and RSd's, personally... but that's just my opinion.

As far as determning why your current speakers distorting, click the link in my sig and go through it.
