View Full Version : MB quart or CDT

07-27-2004, 02:04 AM
I am trying to decide which component set to buy....or at least get some ideas so I can go listen to some speakers...I was deciding between mb quart reference, or the cdt cl-6 components on ikesound. I would like to spend under 200...what would be the best component set for that money, and it doesn't have to be those 2. Thanks.

MB Quarts are a lot brighter, CDT's have a very laid back sound.

CDT's have a very laid back sound.that depends on the tweeters and crossover. There are many different ones.
yeah, i know you have some

the highs on my cdt's are smooth, thanks in part to the silk dome tweets, while the mb quarts are a tad bit harsh. if you were choosing between the two, i would go for the cdt's. much better performance all around over the mb quarts.

Im gonna get the Titanium tweets. They are supposedly better than the silks.

i would say for less than 200 either CDT Cl-62's or EF-61cf's. I myself would get them either wit the tw-20T for the added detail or tw-25s if u want the laid back sound

better depending on your taste. the silk tweets are smooth while the titanium tweets are crisp.

i already will get the 3/4" silks with the comp set.
i opted for the 1" titaniums with the kit.
Hip Hop is not smooth. i want my ears to bleed.

Where did you get the tw-25LP Titanium? I was told CDT dosn't make those anymore?

07-27-2004, 05:30 PM
They do not make a 1" metal! The tweet u got if it is metal is either the tw-19t or 20t both are 3/4" just they are a mm a part in size

07-27-2004, 05:46 PM
i havent got them yet.
if i cant get the titaniums then i dont care.
it shows on the site they have the tw-25/lp in titanium. Maby they need to update

I have a set of MB Quart RCE 216s 6.5". I am very pleased with them. Most people on this board go nuts for the CDTs and I'm sure that's for a good reason. However, I really love listening to my MBs. They can be harsh for the highs, but when properly EQed they are fine. I would really like to listen to a pair of CDTs to see (well hear) the difference.
