View Full Version : CDT CL-61A comps - opinions?

03-28-2011, 07:45 PM
Guys I'm torn and I need help deciding. I have a chance to get a set of CDT CL-61A mids and tweets (no crossover) for cheap, but I dunno too much about CDT. Anyone ever used/heard these?

I have a set of BNIB Zeus 6.5 comps that I had originally intended to use, but I am unsure now. Sic was recommending them; said they ate lots of other more expensive speakers omnomnomnom..... But im not sure i'll be entirely happy with them. I'm not sure if I should jump on this CDT set and try and find some crossovers used... or just throw in the Zeuses and call it a day... I like loud SQ and lots of midbass... I was thinking if I got the CDTs I'd try and sell the Zeuses (not sure if people would want em) but meh...

I needs your help component goorooz!!! Please give me your insight.
Thanks! :)

I have had an entry level pair of CDTs in my Rav for 6 yrs and they still sound awesome crisp and clear. Not to bright CDT is definately quality.

Someonee on here posted that CDT is overpriced cheap stuff - but no eh? I'm leaning towards picking them up and finding a ssuitable crossover - i doubt i'll find the original Satnet 400s anywhere used... :p:

I just put a set of those cdt 6.5'' components in my kick panels. They sound awesome. I think I like them more than my morel tempo components in my doors.

Thanks for the input man :)

Do you guys think they would sound significantly less good if they were played through a non-matching passive crossover?

I use the 6.5" CL series components and love them. They're on a 120W RMS amp and you need to give them that much power to get good midbass. The HD-6 woofers offer far more powerful midbass but then you're jumping up in price to the next tier. I would get CDT crossovers to match the woofers and tweeters, but you might like how they sound with other crossovers.
