Re: DA vs JL vs RF vs CDT for surround speakers.... !?!?
I would use the HD-5 mids and not the ES-5 mids. The reason is ES Gold is a more warm and smooth sounding speaker than HD. It will still sound great with rock and metal, as I use ES mids as my midbass and midrange drivers, but HD will have a bit more of an aggressive sound to the midbass and midrange.
