CDT M6 woofers , EX-480 Crossovers , DRT-25 Tweeters , And A pair of JBL 660GTI tweeters hooked up to the "image tweeter outputs on the X-overs?

Running each side off of a MTX RT-A260 , which is a pretty **** clean amp , does 165 RMS bridged @ 0.04%thd according to the mtx tech i contacted. had to call them because the amps are so **** old that they dont have any info on the website.

Recieveing the speakers this week and i will post pics when they are installed. i have no subs as of yet but i think these CDT's are gonna slap pretty hard for 6.5's. Should i build some FB enclosures for them or just run them IB in deadened doors?

The budget thing is because i will have 200 dollars tied up in all of this. LMAO!!!

IMO no need for a second pair of tweeters but go for it if you want. It'll just cause issues and the CDT "upstage" thing is just a gimmick to get you to spend more money IMO. Hopefully you're happy with it though.

hey Stanky1219
I would use those JBL tweeters vs the CDT tweeters as your main tweeter.
& if you want to use the image, you can use the CDT for the images.
CDT tweeters arent the smoothest sounding tweeter out there.
Those mid in a well deaden door should give you some really nice midbass

I dunno about the CDTs not being smooth... I got CDT tw25s and they are some of the smoothest tweeters I've heard, I love them myself, but each to their own with how something sounds right?

well. it doesnt matter what part of the crossover they hook to. the "image" terminals are wired parralel with the main tweets. like someone said earlier its just a gimmick from cdt. anybody can do it with regular crossovers.

So you get on your knees often to listen to the sound of balls?

LOL. i think it would take a serious noob to make 700 bucks worth of quality components sound like balls. i could see that comment if i said infinity kappas or some of the 60 dollar "wonder pg's" (rsd's)

its great man... I just got m6's and they're nice... I got some HD 4 mids that I wanna do a 3 way with... So far with speakers I've heard CDT has been my favorites, Better than the Hertz, focal, alpine x sets that I've heard.... but right now I'm running the M6's with tw25s tweeters and it sounds very nice, great midbass and smooth highs... the midrange is a little mellow on the m6's but that's why I was thinking on doing the 3 way

Nice, man. I love my two way set. I can cross my mids at 80 and put almost 150W on them...and they wang like crazy. Instead I crossed them up at 100 and they get super loud. Tweets are butter too...

yea right now I have no substage so I have them crossed all the way down to 50hz and they play it easily on most music.... some rap they don't like too much but still don't bottom out or anything the midrange just get kinda blurred but that's only if they're at pretty high volume. I love em, they need more juice though they're only getting 100 watts a side right now

Mine will bottom out pretty easily but I have a boatload of power on them :crazy:

yea I need more but I'll cross them over higher anyway when I get some subs I got a good amp just need some good SQL woofers

What are you waiting for? Need to save up or just unsure what to go with? Pretty much any sub will sound good in the right box...

I'm working on trading for some pretty decent subs, short on cash right now cause I temporarily can't work but I have some decent stuff to trade... I got a pretty good amp, memphis pr 1000, the older model. so just need subs

Makes sense. I was just curious.

I have heard them many times. My Seleniums are every bit as clear and detailed. Only difference is these are 2x as loud on 1/2 the power and will pump out more midbass than the CDTs could.

I actually know a kid who went from a set of CDTs to Seleniums after hearing mine and couldnt be happier.

CDT ****ed up and forgot to take the listing for the comp set down from the b-stock page , they were gone already so i ended up with M6 braxial's which i do believe come with the drt-25 tweets. Either way i was planning on going active in the future so it all works out in the end.
