Both are going to be excellent sounding comps but the HD's are probably still going to have better sq.

i would go with the morel's for the price.
but make sure you add deadener to those doors

you say you wanted more of a smoother tweeter, well morel makes a really nice tweeter, the cdt's to me are kind of harsh, I have the drt 25 which are to bright for my taste.

but know matter which tweeter you use placement & aiming will have the greatest impact.

must be your install mang, the drt 25's are definitely not harsh...actually too laid back for me.

The Cdt tweters are in no way close to harsh, they are in fact very smooth and mellow.

I didn't like them.. smooth is not how I would descibe them. i found them to be bitey. efficient at least. they were too much even off HU power...

this kinda question always starts an argument becasue everyone has heard them set up diffrently or in a diffrent car.

If you can get a listen to both and try to go from there

Ive ran CDTs for about 4 years, from entry Kama to now the ES lines.

The higher you go the smoother the response is.

Agreed on both. My HD62 set was perfect imo. There is also a setting on the crossover for the tweeter's "Harshness/mellowness"... perhaps the bad experiences with this particular tweeter was because it was not properly tuned.

Also, no one ever said my tweeters were harsh. Everyone was amazed by the highs. I still have the same tweeter, but I have the EF mids :( I'm not as ballin as a few years ago I cant afford the HD mids!

So yeah, I never heard the morels, but I would be confident that you would enjoy the CDTs very much.

who pays you to go around defending them? If they're that great, they won't need you to defend them.

As you can see by the pics, i've owned those tweets and heard them before. If you can't take someone's opinion, then I don't think the internet is for you.

Of course you would choose the CDTs. After people take your recommendations for CDT, they can easily click the link to their forum in your sig. How convenient is that! Biased much?

and for the price, i'd go with vifa, peerless, or whoever the hell OEMs their speakers.

****.. this thread got a little hateful.. So then I will put it this way..

for 240-250 what would you get and why? Shops near me sell jl rockford kicker etc etc etc.. so i am not able to hear the nicer stuff.. although jl has decent speakers..
