Looking to maybe upgrade soon. Narrowed it down to either Image dynamics
CTS65CS or should I hold out for the more expensive Alpine SPX-17Pro's. Power is no issue in either case. Just wondering if the Alpines would be worth the extra money over the Image Dynamics. Thanks....

Hard to say if it is worth it to you. For me, I'd put the extra
money towards the alpines because I like the tweeters (on axis)
and the crossovers are very flexible.

If you can't run on axis with the tweeters, domes (ID) may sound just as
good or better. If you don't care about the crossover features, that's another
factor. You may want to download the alpine manual and take a read. The ID's
are straight forward, no reading required:)

Yeah, I have seen good reviews on both comps. It's really too bad I can't have a listen to both of them. Good choice it seems either way. I guess I am trying to justify spending the extra cash. Maybe the extra money would be better served in another area.

What type of music do you listen to and what kinda power are you going to provide the components with?

Mainly rock music, and 100 rms.

Deeden the doors nicely and put the Id CTX's in, you will be surprised at how clean and detailed those comps will sound.

Thanks, those I think are going to be my choice. Woofersect is a authorized internet dealer. Should be quite a treat to have those puppies barking out nice sound quality.

SPX tweeter on-axis is VERY nice sounding. Run those in my active set up...

I have the CTX65CS's in my doors and am getting GREAT sound out of them, I had about $300 to spend but because of the reviews I read on them I decided to purchase them instead of going with a higher priced comp set. I have them running off of an Orion XTR375 sending about 125RMS per channel. They take the power like a champ.

Excellent! Image Dynamics is all about sound quality, and that's what I am after.
