    What are some good 6.5' Coaxials?

    I just installed a Alpine 9833 in my 05 dodge ram. It had 6x9's in the door, but I replaced those with a plate and a set of CDT CL-6X coaxials. These are so unGodly bright it makes me not even turn on my radio. I'm assuming its due to the metal dome tweeter? What are some smooth and clear 6.5's I should look into that I can run off head unit power? I was thinking infinity reference, boston acoustics etc... Looking for something between $100-$135.

    Thanks
    Nick

    do you have a built in x-over on the h/u?

    if so turn down the treble and lower(?) the x-over point..

    Boston Acoustics is great. As are the Pioneer REV series.

    Re: What are some good 6.5' Coaxials?

    I'd save your money and buy a pair of the Cerwin Vega V-mag 602 6.5" point source drivers. $68 online at Buy.com

    They're worth at least twice what they cost. I've been using them for 3 months and now I can't wait to drive my car somewhere. Crystal clear at ANY volume, amazing low-frequency extension, and they fit in stock locations.

    By far, the most underrated and underappreciated speaker on the market. I've heard Polk, Pioneer, Infinity, JBL, etc. and none can even come close to the Cerwins. Now, the ARC Audio and Boston Acoustics might be better, I don't know. I haven't heard them. I always liked Boston Acoustics' sound, honestly. But they also cost a hell of a lot more than $68.

    For all-out value and for a speaker that's GUARANTEED not to disappoint, the Cerwin Vegas are impossible to beat.

    I also had a set of cl-6x's and they were horrible. The lightning audio coax's that you can buy at walmart for 29.99 were better. I second the pioneer REV suggestion.

    If you've already built the plates, why not spring for a nice component set? If you're dead set on a coax, look into the CDT braxials.

    There's a few 6x9" component sets out there too - most notoriable being the MB Quart (allthough most Quarts are known to be a bit on the bright side).

    I didn't want components because I would have to mount them on the door panel or in the sail panel. I'm selling the truck in a year and didn't want to be drilling holes. I also didn't want to have to spend money for a 2 channel amp. I was looking at the cl-61's but after this experience with cdt I'm afraid to try them again.

    Re: What are some good 6.5' Coaxials?

    i dont think you guys are using the cl-6x's in the proper application....you notice in the packaging how it was designed for your imaging and soundstage? you're not supposed to hear it really...your rear passengers or whomever aren't really supposed to know theres rear speakers. it just enhances whatever frontstage you got, and from what i hear those cl-61's aren't bad at all. whatever you do, do not do NOT put the cl-6x's in front and expect them to perform like a regular coaxial.
