1. what setting on the crossover are people setting the tweeters at? (-3db,0db,)do they have this option?
2.how much power-im considering a 4 channel to run all interior speakers,so is 75-100watts per side good for the ID's,or not enough?

I want them to sound real good, with the ability to get loud when I want them to.

I have the set, but I sold the tweeters and paired them up with horns running active.
I did run the tweeters for about 2 weeks.
Basically with the attenuation on the crossover, just install them, or test fit them, see if you want to cut the power to either side to bring your center image a little closer to the middle. I think I had my left tweeter cut -3dB.
As far as power. I have mine on 150wrms a piece and as soon as I get the new amps installed they will both see about 250 a piece. But, 75-100 will do fine on them.
I would recommend running rear speakers off Deck power and bridging that 4 channel to the CTX's.

got mine on 300 watts. They never smell but i can't stand listening them at that power for a long time. I high pass mine around 80-90hz with that power.

Nice set, a lot better than the entry cdt set they remplaced
