    If you're looking at the CDT Cl-61A's, i'd recommend getting the larger upgraded tweeter. Check the link in my sig for more info. Also free shipping and a roll of Monster cable speaker wire.

    definitely the crystal sscs6, many people on here are starting to use them and sending them 250w + to each side and say they sound amazing

    I loved the way my CDT CL61 use to sound. I agree about going with the TW-24 tweeter. I think they are the best sounding speakers for the price. I'm a big CDT fan so my opinion is biased.

    good I don't have to make a post about this now.

    i'm in the market for my first set of components, and wanted to go with a silk tweeter, with the whole setup for around the same price as these...

    if i were to go to with the CDTs could someone recommend a good amp?(sorry for the thread jack)

    Are CDTs just good sound quality, or can they get loud and still sound as good?

    CDTs sound very good and can get very loud doing so.

    i got quoted at 175 out the door for the US Amps XT 1600.2, which is a great price IMO for the power. anyways gymway, if you go with the crystals, contact 95stroked1500 on this forum, it will be cheaper and authorized. for the a/d/s, cardomain has them for about 160 and free shipping i believe, they are also authorized.

    CDT is good but I personally found the sound too flat and not lively enough. SSCS is good but your doors must be deadened for you to get good midbass. Rainbow SLC line is also nice, nice blend of not tooo laiback but not tooo harsh.

    Re: To sum it up... $200 and under comp selection.

    I think Sounddomain sold out the 6.5 inch a/d/s comps. There still seems to be a healthy stock of them on e-bay, but that's not authorized.

    Might also want to consider Oz Vectors. Aluminum dome, but Oz makes great stuff at whatever price range they're in.

    I don't get the CDT thing...They're OK, but...but at $200, you're a stone's throw from the Alpine Type-X, which would be my pick.

    I can think of so many options I'd take over CDT, but it seems to be the boner here...
