    cdt or diamond audio

    Ive been doing my research.Ive been searching the forums and everybody had nothing bad to say about these 2 speakers.Links. http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4609 and http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=2711 I can only fit 5.25.What Im wondering is what are the real main differences between these 2 sets?Which one is more musical?I dont have the oppurtunity to listen to anything other than bb and cc,so i cant really decide.Thanks for the input.

    Re: cdt or diamond audio

    i used to run Diamond and now have the cdt cl comps in the 6.5" and i love the way the cdt's reproduce the music. They have a very detailed and natural sounding mid, very stong clean midbass and the tweeters are silk so they sound silky smooth even when i crank my system to full blast with out getting harsh. Go with the Cdts IMO!!

    Re: cdt or diamond audio

    I have the CDT set (6.5's, 25 tweeter, link in sig). They sound great. The tweeter is PERFECt, not harsh, not weak. Midbass is also very tight.

    The D6's have great midbass. Better than the Hex's in my opinion. Haven't heard that exact CDT set

    Very smooth. You really cannot go wrong with either though. If you like a more detailed sound I'd go for the aluminum.

    Id probably just go with the silk to be safe.Ive heard that the sscs6 tweeter didnt sound like the majority of aluminum tweeters but sounded more like silk.And it was true It wasent harsh at all.

    Re: cdt or diamond audio

    IMO the diamond did not reproduce the music as clear and natural as the Cdt did and the tweeter was smoother and more detailed compared to the diamond even though both were silk.

    One other issue you may want to keep in mind is that diamond company seems to be having problems and is being sold, my brother had sent in a hex mid for warranty and basically got screwed over by them because they told him they are in the middle of changing ownership.
