    Check out the Image Dynamics CTX65cs comps as well.

    Check out the CDT EF61FG/PRO's, those EF are better and are 100 bucks less than the CL's.

    Agreed, Go down to the CTX65cs on price range, or go Up to the Morel Tempo 6.

    I bought some cdt's EF-61NEOX, on this forum and love them, highs are crisp but not too high, mids are great, they are very clear and clean to me, got a JL 300/4v2 on four of them

    Of those sets I havent heard alot of good things about the CDTs. Ive owned a pair of SLC365s and they were fantastic. and I have heard that set of focals and they were also great. I would probably go with the focals if I had to make that decision.

    I have the CDT's in my car w/ the 1" silk tweeters and love the improvement that was created. I can't compare them to the others, but the CDT's work for me.
