    Hi there. That's a generous offer regarding the test drive of the JL stuff. I'm not sure how soon I'm going to be doing installs. It could very quite a bit once I properly understand what goes into the full install. I'm still learning and researching. I may do a simple cheaper setup at first to sort of learn what I'm doing and then later upgrade. So I'd love to try out the JL stuff, but I'll have to let you know when I am close to doing this. Obviously I don't expect you to wait. How much are you selling them for and what are their exact model numbers?

    I did notice that when I changed xovers a little higher than the CDT recommendations and gave them a little more gain they perform better at lower volumes. I am told that although CDT's are beefy and can handle some significant "abuse", that comes with a cost of extra weight of the moving parts which requires the added power. I think I can find a balance and get a decent sound.

    BTW, the main reason I went with CDT was a friend was a dealer and he retired and I some serious discounts, more than half off!

    And a correction. I meant to type "I would not exactly say they are serious SQ pieces", just to be clear.

    As far as CDT speakers go, I really never dealt with their low end gear so I really can't comment on them The gear I have I can say this, they can certainly handle a lot of power. I have the 06's running off a JL HD600 and they handle every bit of 150 watts. When I first set up the DSP , my first tune BTW, I set the xover to 50 - 400 Hz and man do they slam! I really had to back off as they simply overpower the rest of the gear. I would exactly say that they are serious SQ pieces but they do sound good.

    Hi Juan, I can get you some pics of the 06's that I use for mid bass. My install is far from complete and the tweets fit in the factory location. The mids are pretty much just sitting on the dash in small enclosure. I need to make some pods or something. I am waiting to select speaker placement. I am going to the NCSQ meet this weekend and there are some really good tuners who are going to teach me how to tune. the I will try different locations re-tune and see where the best spot will be.
