Alright everyone first post since finding these forums. I've been looking around a lot and am still very confused on what decision I should make. I've heard great things about RE, CDT, Diamond, etc. Just a little background info on what all I'll be running....

1996 Chevvy 2dr Tahoe
Head Unit: Crappy JVC Arsenal Series (Temporary)
Subwoofer: 15" RE XXX
Enclosure: 4ft^3 ported tuned to 30Hz
Sub Amp: Orion 2500D
Rear Fill: Stock (for now Kenwood KFC-K415C Coxials going in soon)

I'll be running the front components off of a JL 300/2. I don't like tweeters that are too harsh. My budget is pretty flexible I'd be willing to pay low $500.00 range for the set if they are worth the money. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the all the recomendations. I am like most noobs who for the most part only knew mainstream brands before starting to frequent some of these car audio forums. I finally got my XXX set-up last week so now its on to comps. Please keep other ideas coming.

Also if anyone knows a good online dealer that sells any of the mentioned products above for a nice price please link it. Thanks again to all.

I talked to him and he suggested two pairs one of them being the HD62 which I had already been looking at. My question is that I hear a lot of people say that if your gonna go with CDT's upgrade the crossover and tweeter. I'm not big on harsh highs so I've decided to go with a silk tweeter. What tweeter and crossover should I upgrade to or should I just leave it the way it comes. Thanks again...

You can get ahold of almost any online seller or djdilldon to get any CDT component you need.
CDT seems very mix-match, I just ordered today, a Euroframe carbon fiber 6.5 inch midrange set, 560 x-over's and drt-26 tweeter in aluminum.
You can choose your tweeter, most of the time its silk. CDT has a very laid back tweeter from everyones words.
The HD-62 just has a beefier midbass, your overall going to want the 560 x-over and DRT-26 tweeter.
The x-over / tweeter upgrade will give you more audiophile x-over. I would recomend them,, its only like $50 more for the 560 X-over.
I got the euroframe because with 110w x 2, its the best set for me, if you have 150 x 2 your sittin alright with the euroframe or the HD set.
