Re: Searching for something better than CDT CL-61's.
I would try to listen to the CDT full HD-62 set (not the sets for less than 200 at thezeb.com) these are what I have and the only things I like better are much more money ($500+) and even then I only like the midbass from one set and tweeter from a different set until you hit around the $900 price point.
I am judging the CDT pro HD set against Focal, Diamond Audio, Boston Pro, Alpine type r and x, JL, eclipse, and Infinity perfects.
Plus remember that any speaker is only as good as the install and the amp driving them. Take a look at your crossover set up, mounting plate, and amplifier before you completely rule out the CDT set you have.
