    Heard all of those sets before except one of them. They are all great speakers and couldnt go wrong with any of them, However if I had to choose one set, I would choose the CDT PSS-0626i gold components(these things are just phenomal, love the way they sounded, wish I could have kept them ). And I take it the Com-626 would be for rear fill?

    I have 4 sets of the CDT CF speakers. They're great. For the price, the output couldn't be better. They'll take alot of power, and stay clean while doing it. They are pretty efficient, too, so it doesn't take too much power to get em going. I absolutely love the tweeters, too. They're not harsh AT ALL, but can get obnoxiously loud. So if you do decide to go w/ the CDT's, you will be happy

    I do not know model numbers and I cant speak about the install.

    Both sets I listened to were in the factory locations. They were loud as hell, but I did not care for the tweeter. It was ear piercing and not enjoyable.
    CDT makes like 100 different sets of comps so maybe some are better than others, but I did not care for those 2 personally.

    I run the Focal 165 KF. Great sound very detaied. I have them off axis in my convertible and love them.

    I've heard the ID CXS64 (in car). Very nice sound (great midbass) but the Focal tweeter seems a little more "refined". I also think the Focal mid is "tighter" sounding than the ID. The Id seems a bit too "punchy" for my taste.

    Can't comment on the CDT.

    I currently own the Focal 165VB's. They are accurate and get loud off not too much power. Though rated for 75w rms, i give them 150 from my JL 300/2 and they are taking it well. The tweets are bright. But not the harshest out there. Overall enjoyable. Though, once again, quite bright.



    System Layout help available via PM.

    My system:
    Sounds good.

    You must be mistaken. CDT Tweeters are FAR from harsh. He must have something set up wrong, or wasnt using a CDT Tweeter. I HATE bright tweeters with a passion, so I would know.
