Components im considering. Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

A few sets of components im considering. Any thoughts? Which would you choose out of them? Or if each could be rated 1-10 on quality and performance.

 

EDIT: Also with loudness in consideration. I like alot of volume. And, if any other components you know of in 300-450 price range that could out do these listed.

CDT's CL line is entry level. I really enjoyed my CL-62Pro set when I first tried CDT Audio, but compared to the other options they're not in the same league. You'd have to put HD-62 in place of CL-62 for a fair comparison, in which case each set will sound a bit different if you could audition them in the same vehicle. They'd all make a fine choice for a sound quality system. CDT has an extended warranty program to cover manufacturing defects for 10 years.

HSK isn't the lowest of Hertz' offerings, that'd be the ESK, but yeah. Wouldn't go Hertz unless you can afford the Mille

 

I second the statement on CDT. If you're going with CDT, go HD, not ES.

 

For Focal, don't bother unless you can step up to the IS, PS, or K2 series

 

That pretty much leaves PHD and it sounds like those'll be smooth offerings. Just keep in mind there's cost involved.

 

You could always go with the MS comps ;)

The Focal Polyglass 165V30's would definitely be my choice in that price range ATM. The access's I've heard never had the same clarity and roundness Polyglass line.

Ya and like Neo said I wouldn't go with them unless Utopias or Mille... But the FB pro series was liked better with a direct drop in swap with Utopias in one review...

That is a huge price range you just put up there. The PHD's are a lot more than the rest but, that's what you get from Italian speakers.

Are you going passive or active? If active, do not rule out piecing a 2-way set together. So many more options, and a budget of $400 can get you some good drivers. It's what I'm doing right now.

Link? Kinda ruled planars out, just read they aren't very tolerant all around. I'm looking for new mids too I think, the CDT HD-62CF's I have won't like the power I will want to give them at how low I want to cross them. Looking at Exodus Anarchy's possibly. I need to start a thread soon, I have so many questions and uncertainties :crap:

Active of course. I plan on doin 2 tweets, 2 4", and 2 6.5", yweets and mids in a pillar, but thats down the road. Im just trying to find a 2 way set right now.
