    CDT, Boston, or Focal comps with 250 budget..?

    I need to decide on a set of 6.5 comps and plan to spend NO MORE then 250 bucks. I will be running the JL 300/4 on my highs with a set of boston rc620 comps as a rear fill. I have narrowed my choices to these three...

    Boston SL60's

    CDT Audio CL-62

    or the Focal 165A

    I've heard the Focals and something similar to the bostons but never heard the CDT's but continue to hear good things about them.

    Discuss

    I plan to purchase off ebay but need to make a decision on which set would be better and more bang for the buck
