You get what you pay for, especially when it comes to 3 way component speaker sets.

Take this as truth coming from a guy that tried to go cheap and ended up wasting a lot of time and money. In the end it would have been cheaper to just buy the quality from the start.
Dont forget the owner of ct is an idiot and says his 8s sound like 10s or 12s. How can you even say something like that.
