Ok, First of all, i'm a little confused because CDT says on their site that the CL-6X is only 6" but on www.thezeb.com it says 6.5". Now, how would these compare to these... http://www.cartoys.com/cartoys/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Product_ID=23055
I'll need to check out mounting depth and all that stuff, but car toys says that the JL is a direct fit for my 92 camry.

I have a question about the cdt 6.5" coaxial. I was reading on their site and it says they have a 6 db crossover. What does that mean. Usually you see a cross over that says something like 100hz highpass, or 80 hs lowpass etc. Does this speaker have a crossover for the tweater?

it uses some cap like an xover to do that, like most coaxes do.

I usually don't like referring someone to different sites when I know the answer to the question, but since I don't exactly, and since I'm on 56k, you can go to bcae1.com and they have some sections on crossovers.

basically what I can tell you is that if you look at the graph of a crossover, the crossover frequency would be the horizontal scale while the dBs would be the horizontal. 6dB is the slope, but with reference to is what I don't know;

oops - frequency: horizontal; dB: vertical

I've seen speakers that have the cap, but I haven't seen them rated like that in db terms rather than hz.

I'll check out the site below and see if it clarifies.

Alright, i'll go with the CDT's then. Saves me 75 bucks. I'd like to get some components up front, but that just seems like too much for me to hassle with right now, especially since i have a very limited knowledge of installation. I haven't even gotten my HU out so that i can install an amp on the fronts :(

I picked them up too. We'll see how they sound.
