    D661s vs. CL-61A

    Thinking of ditching the REV's and getting 2 pairs of these.
    Have any of you guys auditioned these before?? Let me know your inputs. Good, bad sounding speakers?? Good midbass? What about high end extension?

    Thanks in advance!

    they really excel at high frequencies, but midbass lacks considerably. they are loud as long as you keep most of the midbass frequencies out of them, they really dont like it. i gave up on mine and sold them.

    If I get them, the x-over will be at 100hz with 12db slope.
    My current comps are anything but good at midbass, I'll be happy if these surpass them in every way!

    Re: Diamond Audio D661s

    OK so Ive made up my mind. I could get either the D661s or CDT CL-61a for the same price. I have 75W+ RMS to give each side. The whole vehicle is sound deadend with Dynamat X. Which set should I go with?

    both are going to want more power than that, like twice that much.

    If you were looking at the CDT CL-61A's, definately get them over the 661s. I got the upgraded tweeters with mine, seen here http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4418 and they sound absolutely amazing. The midbass response is also excellent. Even these 6.5's let me find rattles in my car.

    x2 on the midbass on the diamonds....thats the one department they really lack in.....but the higher frequencies do get loud as hell though......I would not reccomend the diamond comps at all as Im planning to switch to a different set myself......
