    CDT 5.25" opinions

    going to be adding one other set of speakers to each door. already have 6.5" component and 5.25" coaxial in each door. all CDT, but since this isnt a SQ build i have no need to spend top dollar for their highest line. with that said just need some opinions on these, hopefully personal experience...

    Re: CDT 5.25" opinions

    im thinkin i need to go louder on mid and high. adding 2 more 12's, and the 2 sets of speakers barely kept up with just the 2 12's. so im gunna try to even it out by adding another set... or not a good idea?

    so do we think this cheaper pair will be equally loud, or stop being a tight *** and get the other pair?
