    Z6, Utopia, CTD's .. which to choose?

    Hey, pretty straight forward question. I'm looking for a high quality 2-way comp set that will sound clean, clear, and crisp without sounding harsh or distorted at fairly high volumes. I've heard great things about all of these, but the sets I'm deciding between are the Boston Acoustics Z6's, Focal Utopia's, and CTD EF-61CFi/25's.. I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with these comps, and what you think about them? I'm open to suggestions if you think there are others that are better than those mentioned for around the same price . Thanks!

    dls iridiums and image dynamic chameleons can be all compared as to which ones i like the dls, image dynamics, the bostons and the focals while the cdt's are very laid back. the choice is yours they all have their advantages and disadvantages. the bostons can handle a TON of power the dls and focals are musical the chameleons are life like..just depends if you like warmer sounds the dls and focal would be a good choice. none of them are bad sounding though unless they are installed bad.

    another choice would be the rainbow pros, at around $600, that is what I have and love it, especially compared to my old alpine type x comps.

    The best suggestion would be to find a dealer that carries them and listen to each set with your own material......

    dude those speakers are exspensive as hell !!!!!!!

    i have the es-620's and those components rule for acoustic and classical- very clean with killer vocals. what kind of money are you trying to spend? if your looking for absolute perfection dp a dyi system or look into seas lotus components(you can find those for about 750)

    Phluser, check PMs. How do you guys think they stack up against the ones previously mentioned? (Z6, Iridium, Focal, etc)
