    Cdt-cl61 Crossover

    guys I was wondering what's the setting you use for the crossover in the CDT-CL61 and how it helped in sound? (like 3db,6db or whaever the jumping setting is on the crossover)

    it'd be different for diff cars. I expect that to be attenuation. If your tweeters are closer to your ears than the mids, try to use the 3dB, 6dB setting. If they are flush to your mids, then put it to 0.

    It is attenuation and its something you have to experiment with to see what setting sounds right for your vehicle.

    Re: Cdt-cl61 Crossover

    I have those same comps and I was unaware of those settings. My midranges are in my doors and the tweeters are by the A pillars in the lower corners of the windshield. Thanks for the info, I will have to try different settings (not that they don't sound great already!).

    P.S. has anyone purchased the 2nd pair of tweeters (I believe they call it the image enchancement set). What benefits are there to running two sets of tweeters for imaging? I'll be honest, it's sounds really good right now, and the sound seems to be coming from my wipers in my 2000 dodge stratus.

    Speak with 'Gauntlet'. He has the CL-61's and the Image Enhancement tweeters. Should be able to give you some idea of what the difference is and what to expect.

    Only your ears can determine what sounds better.
