I'm guessing they don't set the crossover right/over eq, or they are giving them almost 3 times the power they are recommended at.

true ill be giving them 95 or so watts form a JBL gto 75.2 for now. Next set needs to handle 200+ watts.

I have heard and owned all those comps besided hifonics.

The RSD have poor midbass, power handling and the tweeters are harsh

The Pioneers sounded nice, but the Cdt's sounded the best to me and had the most power handling.

I would say go with the CDT's because they are very nice speakers but the RSD's are very good for the price too. They can take quite a bit more power than the 60 rms reccommended, and they sound very clear if you set the crossovers correctly.

If you are looking to spend less than $100, go with the CDT's, but remember that you really cannot go wrong for $60 with the RSD's. They will impress you.

the cl 60 cdt are a bit undetailed and did not sound that well IMO. i recently had a chance to listen to the Pioneer d series comps and was honestly very suprised at how well they sound and would defintly say the pioneers sounded much better then the cdts. And for hoodlum to say the rsd have no midbass you are doing somthing wrong. the rsd's had some darn good snap to them considering their price. just my 02

i have heard the pioneers and really liked them. very clear and smooth sounding in my opinion and the tweeter is over an inch in size and hits all the high notes with ease i think. they will probly be my next set

im replacing a set of JBL p650c's so as long as any of these would be an upgrade would be nice. the JBls have no midbass and the tweets are alittle harsh but very detailed.

I am going to be giving these a shot.

I been reading a few reviews on them. Seem pretty decent for the price. Only complaint was the size of the motor but thats pretty moot if you can do spacers.

I am waiting on my SAX-50.4, and I havent gotten the Comp set yet.

I'll give a review once I get them all set up.

Trying to find an Active Hu atm too.

no.

That is not true. Some people got them from woofersetc.com that had the tweets blow.... I honestly believe the mids might be able to take that much power, but not the tweets. They are rated at 60 watts per side, and people are running them at like 300 watts per side.

It just so happens that audiosavings sells them for really cheap, and people tend to buy off eBay.

I like my RSD's I would say well worth the $70 dollars. I have 125wrms on mine, but ive only ran them for like 12 hours. I like them better than the Kicker KS components.
