    Confused on CDT...What to get

    Browsing on www.woofersetc.com I am looking for a set of 5 and 1/4 CDT components...

    I have a budget of $200.

    These are my options...

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=3079 (EF-51Neo)

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4609 (CL-51A-25 PRO)

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=4893 (EF-51Neo/DRT-25 Pro)

    http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...roduct_ID=1095 (EF-51)

    As well, I am looking at some Pioneer Premier TS-C520PRS, but I am not sure if these are gonna be better or worse compared to CDT. Up until 3 days ago, I had never heard of CDT...

    BTW, My head unit is a Pioneer Premier P860MP and the components will be run off of a Alpine MRPF450 Amp (75WRMS x 4).

    Re: Confused on CDT...What to get

    i am using the CL 61 6.5" comps and am so happy with the over all way they sound, the mids are very loud and the tweeters are silk and smooth at any volems. i have heard the Premiers and they sounded OK but they lacked detail and sounded muddy at hi volumes.

    i say to go with the CL51a25 pro

    75 watts rms.

    I cant decide between the pioneers and CDT's now. So many people are speaking very highly of these premiers...

    Not a fan of CDT, but those look like a pretty good deal to me.

    I bought a set of CDT ef 61's from djdilliodon on this forum. They are decent speakers. He sells authorized and he ships fast.

    With that power you may also want to consider the Alpine Type X components.

    Cheap 3-series are getting hard to find, and these are more comparable to the CL-EF sets you can get in the $150-$200 range than the 346cs, which is more comparable to the ES series. The 2-series use the same tweet as the 3-series, but with a polypropylene mid (as opposed to spun-aluminum) and a simplified crossover.

    I'd take these over a CDT CL or EF any day. But I'm not big on CDT, so, that's just my bias.

    And the pricetag is worth considering. These a very, very good speakers for $84 authorized. That's an excellent deal, which may evaporate soon.

    For the money, I don't see something better out there.

    Re: Confused on CDT...What to get

    I love my CDT's, but with only 75w I can't recommend them to you with that little power. I'm pushing 150w to my CL 61A's and they sound amazing.

    Re: Confused on CDT...What to get

    So 75W is not enough for CDT, but now I have people recommending ADS and Crystal...

    I am looking for some great sound quality up front.

    I am aslo thinking of the PRS's from Pioneer and some MB Quart reference...
