    Cdts and AT

    Got a set of CDT COM-626 from @TheUnderFighter a couple of weeks ago. Ordered a 25 sq ft roll of AT 60mil for the job, but only needed about half of it for the doors. Completely covered my trunk lid, and still had enough to do my brother's trunk lid, too. I used some closed cell tape on the stock speaker mounts, but other than that it was a very simple and (inexpensive) install. Here's a couple pics...

    before...


    a lil closed cell for a nice seal....


    Some 60 mil, my brother put 90% of it in, and it was his first time using any deadener. This stuff is easy to use.


    And after...


    The tweets are double side-taped to the sails at the moment, too big to fit in the stock locations.... but I have a plan. I'll post a pic of them when I'm finished with it, but the setup sounds a heck of a lot better than the $140 I spent on it.

    It's a 2005 Malibu LS V6. And, I love them. And these are CDT's budget comps? They sound nicer than a lot of the mainstream stuff you find at the $150 level....

    Re: Cdts and AT

    Looks great!! I bet they sound Fantastic as well??? I have previously installed a pair of CDT HD 6 100 Braxial 6.5,and a set of CDT CL-E61NEO 6.5 components,and am very happy with the sound given,and power taken by both sets..and have put the xovers in the upper portion of the floor boards to retreive some air, and stay cool,and away from moisture Im hoping.The Mids are Fantastic,while the Highs are crisp/yet mellow..I have been through several sets of components,and have to say,that the CDT come To top of my list along with my older set of Polk MoMo..What kind of power(Amp) you got running them atm?

    Yup they sure do sound good and clean and clear. I can't wait until I have some real mids and tweets in to at least try to come close to that sound! I'm sick of my crumby Kenwood coaxials >.<

    I have a an XR-4S running them right now. I did have them on my Eclipse 3640, bridged, but the amp would get unbelievably hot.... I have to say, the newer kenwood excelon sounds much better than I expected. I really didn't want to put em on a class D, but it's decent.

    I've got my mids in, but only hooked them up for testing because they don't fit in my OEM speaker baffles. And I haven't ordered my tweets yet because I decided not to use the amp I ordered a couple weeks ago, and now I'm looking for another amp again. At least I have my Mmats for my sub now though. So all I have left to do is tweets, amp, 2nd sub, new enclosure. Easier said than done I guess.
