hey guys! Its just about that time for me to get my 5.25's for my sq setup. Now
I have a couple of choices for my components. I was looking at a set of Kicker K5.2 for around $300cdn. I heard these and they were decent but unfortunetally I wasnt able to compore them to very much as this will be my first set i have owned.
The other options I have are I can look into a set of CDT EF-51cv's for $155usd.

I know there arent alot of people who can give a first hand comparison of these two sets! but all opinions are welcome!

oh! and there is a slightly less likely option available. Type X's for $450cdn. :greedy: :waycrazy:

Just for clarification. That is $260CDN, which works out to $182US, and no shipping had to be paid :clap:

Having conections is a good thing :toast:

I'll have to look into that pricing(D*mn you Visions). Can you still get them for that or was it a sale?

I just really wonder how thgey compare to the cdt's? :uhoh:

regular everyday price for me, and it was from a smaller stereo shop, not a big chain like Visions. I hate chain stores. But I am pretty sure I can't buy and sell the equipment I buy from them, they may not appreciate that.

Thanks..I hope I made the right decision..I got some "deal" help and when they said $250 for CDT-HD52's that are $450MSRP..I figured the last thing I am going to do is Regret it.We will see..wish me luck!!!I see you got An ARC AMP..so you may be glad to hear I got the Arc 2050CXL's powering the CDT's. that won't hurt!

i hate Visions. they had a demo car and i put in mt bass CD, they their ******* in a bunch!
hello ? why have the car on and open if you cant play with it.
BUT! they did have dB Drag there, i was my first one.
P.S
CDT's are cheap, you just gotta know where to get them from ;)
