how does the CDT CL-62 component system rank? has anyone heard it? i bought one and have them installed in my truck, and they sound good.. but i think they could sound better. im looking into upgrading to a different component set, but there's so many options out there. ive been trying to read through all the threads that compare, but its hard to say. id go demo a bunch of speakers, but from my experience the demo isnt always accurate. they tend to sound different from the demo room and in your car. any comments, feedback, tips?

also, i was reading in a thread that talked about front fill and rear fill. is "rear fill" just the speakers that you put in the back? in the thread it said that if you had nice enough component speakers and sound deadening that rear fill isnt necessary. any opinions? just thought id throw that out there. im a rookie.

thanks everyone.

what kinda amp and h/u are you using. I'm gonna order some ef's soon. Rear fill is the back and you don't need it if you have a good front stage setup, especially in a truck. what kinda truck you got

Those speakers are supposed to recieve 180watts x2 I believe...you're only giving them about 7-20 watts x2. That would explain for the sound. Go buy a cheap amp from cardomain.com

thats exactally what i was going to say ^^^^

get an amp, and you will get 100% better sound.

speakers only sound as good as the signal you give to them. so go buy an amp that can do the RMS of those speakers, and you will hear a difference like night and day. hopefully you arent going too loud with them because that HU will start to clip (prolly wont reach past thermal\mechanical failure tho) ... but it could mess them up.

get an amp. 100~150 x2 @ 4ohms.

mine sound great with only ~50w (rears are still off HU until my 4ch amp comes in the mail)

HiFonics Nemesis NX600
150W x 2 @ 4 ohms
$135 here: http://www.cardomain.com/item/HIFNX600

This will give you almost the full amount of power the components are rated at RMS. I'd definately go for this, and it's relatively cheap!

GOOD DEAL :thumbupw:

im still a bit confused though. i thought that it didnt matter if you underpower a speaker? if you give it more power, isnt it only going to get louder? sorry, im still a beginner! help me learn, thanks!

well yes, i did want it a little bit louder. but the replies to this thread made it seem like if they're powered with an external amp that they'll sound much better, and thats what confused me.

if you amp them it will get louder and sound much better. the midrang\high feq with greatly increase in quality and sound. i had a set of cl-61 and i ran off HU and then i made the wize dission to amp them and its really like night and day now. and if you really want a extra kick get the IEK setup for cdt and place them high in the a-pillars of your truck and i promise you, you will love it. amping any speakers will most of the time make quite a dif.

i just spent $150 and bought a memphis audio st3004. thats 75 watts x 2 @ 4 ohms, i can bridge those and give the cdt's 150 watts rms a piece. sound good?

my comps sound clean with 85 i could only imagine what 130~150 would be like

umm, correct me if I'm wrong but if you bridge that amp, you're going to be running 150x1@2ohms... mono. That would kinda defeat what you're looking for in a couple of ways... :thumbsdo:

i dont think thats right, but i could be wrong. i didnt think that bridging the channels resulted in a mono output, i just thought that it was more power. help anyone?

oh im sorry, i posted the specs on the amp wrong. i just re-read the previous entry and realized what i had written. the amp is 75 watts X 4 @ 4 ohms. so i can bridge the channels and get 150 watts X 2 @ 4 ohms, correct? sorry about the typo, there was our confusion.
