Budget of about $300 for both.
I had a RE12 and CDT CL61a which I think are blown
I like the CDT CL-61's. Great speakers. Stay away from thezeb tho, they seem to have the old stock and have more issues. MainStreetAudio has been good to me.
I'd also go with an Elemental Designs sub. I think it's the e13v2o.
Send an AIM message to djdilliodon for CDT stuff. He's a distributor for them and he's on a lot of car audio boards if you want to check for reference.
If you liked what you had before, why not get replacements?
I guess I like to try other speakers on the market. Not really a die-hard CDT fan because the speakers I got gave me problems.
jollyogre: Where did you hear about thezeb.com's CDT stock have more issues?
I like some front components that are LOUD.. the CL61's got distorted at a semi-loud level
I used to be on sound illusions, and the guy that turned me onto CDT also warned me about the zeb. Said they bought the old stock, and he had noticed a shotty record from them. I have ordered other things from teh zeb and I will not do business with them again. They do not match prices, despite their advertisements, and their stock is usually either old products, or has some catch. For the $5 extra that you spend at mainstreet, you know exactly what you're getting.
Well I can't exactly say the speakers are blown. They are just very muted and there is an alternator whine coming through the speakers. My guess is wiring issues but speakers could be blown.
i don't think they would be blown.
But Diamond M6/D6 components are real nice and don't seem to distort on me with enough power.
If you can increase your budget a bit, soundsplinter RL-i or RL-p sub would be a good bet
Rl-i 10 and Orion p6.2's
save up and get some diamond components they sound damn good
how much do they cost?
depends on what size, model line all that crap... i think the cheapest is like 150-350 online pricing.
there have been some top end A/D/S floating around on ebay
thezeb.com has a sale on CDT EF series euroframe components for 199 or the regular cl's for 150
my combo ended up costing me 200$ from eBay..infinity 6000cs 6.5" components and an alpine type-r 12"
waht kind of car is it?
i still get a bit of an alternator whine in my car when the motor is cold...vw gti
2000 honda accord
i pretty much isolated that the problem is either the amp or the power wiring. i think its the amp though. so prolly gonna get another JBL from cardomain, one of those refurbed GTO'S
arn't the JBL amps bad?
i'm not familiar with then new GTO JBL amps but i think they're supposed to be pretty good. I love the old BP series amps.
I sold my friend 2 BP amps for his STi and they are still pumpin away perfectly
have you temp installed anything else?
before you go blaming your issues on the company or seller, you might wanna look into what may be a user error
Get an IDMAX and some chameleon components
i pretty much tested out the front components.. and the sound occurs at the speaker which i connect to the left speaker connection at the amp. it also doesn't get much power at that side. i'm guessing its an amp problem, i bought a planetside for $100 as recommended by an oter.
and i picked up an alpine type-e 12". sounds pretty good for the buck.
