I don't think I would go with the CL's. At least do the EF's; the HD's if you can.

I would spend the extra $$ and get the hd set if it were me. Much better off in the long run.

lol, just pm the guy whose post was deleted. Or search his posts -- he probably has a FS thread. But I think he said $30 more than the set you were looking at.

Are you certain that you can't manage a set of 6.5's? Sometimes you can with some mods. If so you will get better midbass. Quite frankly, the knock on CDT's is usually a lack of midbass so I think I would be concerned about going that route with the 5.25's. Have you considered Boston Pro's? You nay be able to get some for about that. You would need to plan on giving them some juice though.

Oh, I should say that the knock on the CDT's about midbass seems to be more focused on CL's and EF's. I have the EF's, and I would have to agree that the midbass is not that great. I do, however, like the midrange.

No, the HD's are above the EF's in the food chain. Honestly, if you are considering CDT's I would pm Djdilliodon. He was a very prompt seller when I bought and from what I have seen a straight shooter when discussing the products he sells.

Talk to Don, and just because you have that much power does not mean you have to use it. Cut back on the gains. Having "headroom" is a good thing.

i am using the CL 6.5" series classics and love them, they take plenty of power, extra smooth silk tweeter and the midbass is not lacking at all.

a little secret if you want to save 60 bucks on that set, order the cl50's they are 99 and no cost of shipping :). I got my pair the other day. orignaly ordered the cl50s and when i recieved it they left a little note saying we gave you a higher model. i was happy matches my amp better anyways. plus everyone is saying midbass isnt all there. its true to the most part but still an awsome sounding pair of drivers. love the highs and mids. some of the mid bass is still there

Contact Djdilliodon through PM or on ebay if you want CDT. For new authorized stuff he has the best prices. I have bought from him more than a couple times. HD series stuff is way better than the CL or EF stuff and the ES or Gold is whole nother topic IMO.

You can never go wrong with choosing Rainbow either.

I am a fan of both CDT & Rainbow. The lower end Rainbow stuff is better than the CDT IMO. If you can get some CDT HD stuff on the cheap then you got a winner.

Before I would buy CL or EF for a budget set I would buy PGrsd comps or Crystals.

Something else to take a look at would also be Pioneer 720PRS comp set.

i found an hd-62 set for $170 if i can for sure fit 6.5" without a **** load of mods then im probably going with those. they have the tw-24 tweet, and the sat 560 x over.
