can't go wrong with either the rsd's or the rev's but for the money I would get the rsd's. There about $60 more or less cheaper than the rev's. http://www.audiosavings.com/product_details.aspx?item_guid=767e9c4a-3e3b-4e48-8a27-7a13f9c0a9fe&category_guid=7617d28f-f8fa-4c53-b172-133ce952abd6

today i heard the pg rsds th 125 rms to each, and pioneer revs with 80 rms, and the pg's were cleaner and pounded harder, nice highs.

Part of that could have been the 45wrms in power difference. But seems people like the RSDS over the revs

Only worry I had about the ts-c160r is power handling
I love the ts-c720prs but im just not sure if i can fit them in the budget right now.

I thought people on this site loved CDT doesn't seem like anyone is showing them love anymore.

Thats what I seem to be leaning towards. They can be bought for 90 bucks I just dont understand how I cant get better for double the money.

The REV comps aren't too bad with around 75w rms to my ears. YRMV

As for CDT, I've read some outstanding reviews of their higher-end equipment, and I think that is what drove the interest for the lower-end stuff. Unfortunately, it seems the lower end stuff really lacks midbass and authority based on numerous postings.

EF-61CFi/25's how about those cdts?
Would they be considered higher end? Any better?

12-19-2007, 01:13 PM

If you want to spend more, I would go with the EF-61s with the TW25. If you want to spend less, get the RSDs. The MMC6500s are a good choice too. Eclipse SC8264s are another good choice. All depends on your budget. You said 250 max...I'm not so sure the EF-61s would be worth double the price of the RSDs...

Another set to look at is the convertible CW VMax65 (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=18508)'s. Right now they are on sale (albeit a small one) at OCS.

And if you are planning an active front stage, check out this review (http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7302) of the 720PRS set over at DIYMA (specifically, post #21). Don't let the comments about the passive xovers get to you, though... they are extreme hardcore SQ guys over there. And they're on sale (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=17068), too! <-- HINT HINT HINT

How would those Pioneers go against
CDT EF-61CFi/25's with all upgrades(new crossover and tw25 tweeter)
I can get the cdts 50 bucks cheaper then the pioneers

There's a reason there are no upgrades available for the 720PRS set... they aren't needed. :D

read through that page of reviews. Kinda mixed woofers response wasn't fast enough. People were happy with them but at the same they were a little lacking.

Probably quite a few crappy installs would be my guess. And it's like reading reviews for car audio products at the bestbuy or walmart web sites... something you should never put much faith into.
