    You can't go wrong with the CDT or the ID's, both are great sounding comps.

    Ah yes I saw this forum earlier today and these interested me too. You said that you own these and like them? and how do you think they will sound on headunit power cause I'm not gonna get an amp for these for a little bit but I will eventually

    x2, Have messed with all, CDT cl's, ID and Pioneers. The d-series Pioneers are no joke. The ID's are very nice, IMO second to the the Pioneers with CDT being the last due to lack of detail and false representation of instruments.
