    CDT,HAT,Diamond Audio?? Budget Build for 2013 Honda Accord

    SO i just recently got a 2013 Honda Accord. So HU will be stock since there are no dash kits yet
    i was trying to decided between a few things. Im on a college student budget but i will work slow for better results if i need to.
    I had in mind for 6.5 components
    1.CDT (idk what model)
    2. HAT Imagine ( i really liked) Imagine I61-2V2 6.5" Component / Coaxial Speaker Set - 12v Electronics
    3. Diamond Audio (idk model number but i heard them in local audio shop)

    Amp
    1. Zed Audio Amp

    Your welcome to recommended any others but id prefer those brands or Image Dynamics (which was in my last car)

    specs: 2013 honda accord sedan, college budget .
    id like to spend no more then 300 on component speakers, 400 on amp and a sub for like 250

    well i haven't heard any convertible components that sounded good as of yet ,hats are nice ,but the are just as good for less.and most of their lower lines dont sound that good .xfl 12 would be the sub to go with ,as far as bangish as you say that will depend on the enclosure more than the sub.i could probably give you a good deal at the end of the week on everything ,but the hd 61a will be a bit more,not much tho

    Also the JBL MS-62C set. Haven't heard them personally but I have not seen a single bad review on them.

    Re: CDT,HAT,Diamond Audio?? Budget Build for 2013 Honda Accord

    ive been digging around and here is my prior experience,
    the older diamond audio hex sets are great. kevlar cones. the newer stuff is OK.
    CDT has tons of models. never heard them, definately have mylows10 help you if you decide with them.
    the JBL ms Set has been getting HUGE review for being awesome for the money.
    The tweeters are a little harsh so you will have to dial them back a little.
    I decided to pair up a set of speakers and tweeters off of Madisound.com.
    it is the cheaper and better sound quality option for running active. for running passive i would choose either
    HAT imagines set, the JBL MS set if you like brighter highs, or hittup audible physics. theyre hard to get ahold of but apparently make a helluva speaker.

    Jbl gti's are very good speakers but for the rest better go infinity. Jim's cdts are the best value here.

    CDT isn't worth the money vs JBL or Hybrid.
    If you do get CDT look in there ES mids.
    I listen to new JBL MS line the other day & I think for the money they are good.

    Have thought about Helix?
    I was listening to there comps the other day & I was impressed with them.
    You can find there lower line stuff around $250 if I'm remember right.
    You live in a big city , so you should be able to find a shop around you so you can compare different comp sets.

    CDT is essentially rebadged vifa, I'm not saying that is a bad thing necessarily, because vifa makes good drivers. There is much much better out there though.

    There was truth to this statement years ago. You can look at some older models with the red baskets and tell it's a Vifa-esque design, but today's models are CDT designed and engineered.
