    comp or coaxil

    ive always heard comp sets are better for sq then coaxil. which would sound better(in your opinion) a set of cheap comps off ebay, under $50, or a set of CDT CL-5X?

    When going comps, don't go too "cheap" or you'll be wasting your money.

    Some good budget sets are the Infinity Reference, Peerless Definition, RE comps and the like

    COMPS!

    usually (from what ive heard) the high end companies that make comps have their 'low end' and 'high end' and i suppose the low end ones will always be better than the cheap $50 pair, but im getting my cdts on thursday. from what ive heard. go comps all the way. you can change the frequencies unlike coaxial. you have dedicated midbass and high, overall quality is much better than "sell more worth less" idea that companies like rockford, audiobahn, and pioneer have.

    so get comps. =)

    Not too many comps have variable crossover points. Most just have tweeter attenuation.

    Re: comp or coaxil

    quality really doesn't have much to do with the difference...there are excellent coaxials out there and really bad comp sets, just because they're comps doesn't automatically make them better

    Re: comp or coaxil

    so i'd just be better sticking with the CL-6X up front unless i want to shell out some big buck on a nice comp set?

    Re: comp or coaxil

    would it hurt them to pass them at about 60-70hz when i get my 15 back. cause my hcca didn't really go much over 50-60Hz. its kinda weird cause my cheap sonys are loud all the way to alittle over 80 by the expensive orion don't like high notes.

    Re: comp or coaxil

    well if the sub didn't play over 50-60, wouldn't i want to do them lower around 60-70, so the two can kind of blend together in the middle? if i did them at 100-120 i'd have a "hole" in my music from about 50 to 120hz. . . wouldn't i?
