here is the new high end line by cdt audio. its the 07 series. i would be here all day explaining what this set is all about so very brief. The xover is an upstage, xover, zone adapter, eq, and can do 2 way or 3 way from a flick of a nice chrome switch. The mids use the hd and es style baket just bigger cause its a full 7" and the motor is bigger. The set will come with 3-4 pairs of tweets in silk, titanium, and aluminum dome. This is a proto type the set due in march maybe a little different. http://www.s-10owners.com/albums/djdilliodon/EuroSport_07.gif

awesome looking mids for sure. just too bad those pretty orange baskets have to hide in the kickpanels.

cool looking tweets too!

Nope

Ditto, but who cares? so long as the sound justifies the price...

My interest is piqued.

Looks good. Do we have any specs for them? Are they going to be the highest line for CDT? Better than the EuroSports?

Thanks,

they set and specs are confusing.

These are definitely meant to be covered up. ;)

I’m more interested in how they perform, though. The crossover sounds rather nice.

i think they should have went wit a different color but its still possible that can change since those are the proto type pics:)

Even if they changed the basket color, the cone would still be ugly. ;)

As well as the square tweeter baffles (whose going to be able to fit those in stock tweeter locations) and the, what appears to be, ungodly sized crossovers with cheesy lookin' wire mesh covers ;)

LBX2G
11-19-2004, 10:37 PM
i mean they will cost over $900. who is gonna mount them in the stock location. That is like gettin an us-VLX4 and just sitting it in ur car.

You’re right. There’s absolutely nothing even remotely attractive about this set. ;)

Therefore, for $1000, they had better sound **** amazing.

keep the feedback coming i can relay all the info to cdt. They wanna know what YOU guys think. the performance thats done but looks i also agree it needs work. so far im tellin them orange has to go lol, Do a round style tweeter housing, and a plexi xover cover?

djdilliodon
11-19-2004, 11:47 PM
oh and push terminals on mids is a must :) i like that when im spending all that money lol

Push button terminals definitely! So much easier to work with. And I'd definitely put my vote in for plexi covered xovers......if those things are as sophisticated as you say, I'd be all for showing them off :) Plus the plexi would simply look much better than wire mesh...LOL

Meh, don't worry about Squeak, he's got an anti-cdt boner. ;). The mids do look pretty ugly though, although the tweets look decent. I've always liked the CDT x-overs (with the mesh), and everyone I've talked to agreed....

Hey, constructive criticism :moon: For being the up and coming flagship model, they certainly could use a little higher end look and features (like the pushbutton terminals dj brilliantly brought up)

Actually, I agree, and I take back my earlier comment. I don't think that the mesh crossiver cover looks bad.

i do agree with squek though the set should look more higher end looking. i will run all this by cdt on monday and see what they can do. reason they gave me these pics was to see what people thought and so they can change them to everyones liking.

Tell them that $1000 speakers should look like this:

Meh, I'd rather have smaller magnets vs larger ones if there's no real differance...

The orange is UGLY though... I'd rather judge them by how they sound ;)

I would assume that all manufacturers use as small a magnet as their design and cost allows.

And I think we all would agree that they should be judged primarily on sound. Of course, this is difficult to do through a picture. ;) After all, there are many bland-looking (though not "ugly", per say) speakers that are supposed to be excellent. For example:

I just upgraded to these. They do sound phenominal. Who really cares what color the basket is when they're behind door panels and not even seen. Btw, I'll make someone a killer deal on a 4 month old set of ES-620s, ES-300s, and RF Power T8004 amp.

I'm saying change the basket color to Neon Green.... I mean who can really argue with a speaker that's NEON GREEN!!!! NO ONE!!! Point made. thank you...

btw crossover is HUGE... as much as i've gotta hit myself for sayin it, throw some brushed aluminum on it or chrome or carbon fiber... SOMETHING that would make it look expensive... when i'm droppin 1 G on a setta speakers i wanna c it as well as hear it.

total supporter of the push button terminals as well

I think the logo on the cone needs to go. yea call them the 07's but put some CDT pride on those... i wanna c a sick adaptation of the CDT logo on the cone.

Jodi, I would be interested in the ES-300s. I'm trying to convert a set of ES-620's into a 3 way setup. Drop me an e-mail if your serious about selling them.

djdilliodon
04-11-2005, 11:54 PM
yea those xovers are huge. They make a vhs tape look small lol. They do however let u adjust every single driver sperately right from the board. After some tunning u can get the stage perfect dead center. The xover also has an upstage kit built in . You can also flick a switch a reverse polarity or flick another and make it into a 2 way or 3 way xover.

God, I dont care what the cross-overs look like because I dont use them ;) I would though like to hear those tweets, or even get ahold of them. Would I be able to purchase the tweeters seprate from the set? Who acually makes them? Or what are they referenced from, I really dont reconize its origin.


That is all

djdilliodon
04-13-2005, 09:23 PM
cdt makes them. The tweets can be had seperate if u want. they now have grills on them as well. They are based off the es hd bastket but the 07 basket is bigger but same design. The rest is different as well.
