Honestly, I would say no to all of those, only because there are some other options which I feel are of better value.

Are you planning on using a 6.5/full range combo as a 2-way setup? Or are you planning on using the tweets from the CDT's as well to put together a 3-way stage?

Here's a few suggestions going off of the price range of the speakers you chose.

Midbass (~$50 per speaker)
Peerless SLS 6.5 (http://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=8234) - Solid midbass performance up into the 300-400hz range.
Dayton RS180 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=295-374)

Fullrange/mids (~$25 per speaker)
Fountek FR88EX (http://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=132&products_id=8585)
Dayton RS100 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=295-378)
Tang Band W3-1364sa (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=264-844)

You might want to pick up an electronic crossover instead of passive - it'll most likely be cheaper in the long run, especially if you want to try out different drivers. Something like this (http://www.caraudioclassifieds.org/forum/showthread.php?t=47288)would be worth considering if you have no desire to use a processor.

look into the Crystal SSCS6 component system. They are very rare though since the company went down under like 2 years ago. However they are the best sounding components you could buy for the price. Go search them up on this site; many rave reviews about them. Good thing is I got my Crystal component system for sale! Check it out! Very low price!

Depending on your locations/aiming, you can probably get away with a 2-way front, using fullranges and midbass. I'm currently doing so w/ the fountek fr88ex and peerless sls.

What's your budget and where are you placing them? Are you going to run another active/passive xover or are you just going to daisy chain to get the 4th ch? Let me know if you need any help man.

Dayton, peerless sls, Tang Band W6-1721 6-1/2" Underhung Midbass Driver | Parts-Express.com (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=264-874) , https://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=45_228_256&products_id=8688&osCsid=e226f59ba494bc72188de158a1a26e8d for midbass. In my opinion the Scanspeak Discovery is better than the SLS and Dayton Refs and I've used all 3. And for midrange: Dayton RS75-4 3" Reference Full-Range Driver 4 Ohm | Parts-Express.com (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=295-380) or
Tang Band W3-1364SA 3" Bamboo Cone Driver | Parts-Express.com (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=264-844) or
Tang Band W4-1337SD 4" Titanium Driver | Parts-Express.com (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=264-848) or
https://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=45_241_282&products_id=83 or
https://www.madisound.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=45_241_282&products_id=8824
Also consider the Hybrid Audio L3's and H-Audio Trinitys. Let me know if you need any help setting it up or tuning. Lots of good speakers out there.
