    Both will sound great but the XS have better mids and tweeters so they will be the better sounding comp set.

    Re: id csx64 vs id xs65

    The CXS and XS use the same tweeter.......


    This is what the VP of sales for Image Dynamics (Sean Adler) said about the two.......


    The XS65 offers a solid midrange that increases as the spider softens and breaks in. This is good if you prefer better upper end and rely on complementary bass from your subwoofer. The XS mid driver also has a beautiful, natural roll off at approximately 1800hz (+/-).



    The CXS64v.2 was designed to offer more mid-bass attack at between 80-130hz, and it does it effortlessly. However, with this mid-bass, you will lose some of your upper midrange capability. The CXS has a natural roll off starting at about 1600hz.



    Both sets utilize the XS28 tweeter for a smooth response in the high range frequencies. Both crossovers offer plenty of adjustment capability for the tweeter and allow the mid driver to play through its natural roll off.



    Again, if you want a bit more mid-bass, then CXS if you prefer more mid-range attack, then XS. Either way you decide, you will not be disappointed with your decision.

    Re: id csx64 vs id xs65

    exactly whut he said. I just wanted to add that the XS will cost more but if u shop around, some retailers still have the CXS' with the NX30 tweets in them. There is nothing wrong with the NX30.. From my experience the XS28's work better off axis while the NX30 has a swivel mounting cup and allow u to "aim" them better.

    Does anyone know how far the tweeter protrudes from the midbass when mounted coaxially?

    Is it easy to get the tweeter on there? WHo is that? The voice sounds familiar....my friend listens to him often.

    Yep basically you put the tweeter on the tweeter mount in the front and screw it in from the backside.

    Looks like you would have to as most tweets are hardwired.
