EDIT: I do not recommend these for SPL style setups/daily groud pounding!!! Only sq, they will not hold up, ik personally.
So i picked up a set of the cs50k's from the bravox buyout and i must say freaky fast shipping, they came the next day.
They were installed tonight while i supervised since i'm recovering from surgery.
I would like to start by saying these components look very sexy. Rubber surround, yellow kevlar cone, silk dome tweeters.
Themids are very very stiff.
The ease of install is uncomparable, they come with all the items needed including spade terminals.
The crossover setup is very neat and labeled very clearly.
So on to the sound part, these were being tested on 115rms per side.
They were absolutely laughing at this power, just begging for more.
The mids are very punchy, yet smooth, and have a forceful kick to them, they play down to 40hz with eaze, have no distortion, and transition very quickly. If you aren't into boomy substages, these mids would actually make up for having no substage as they reproduce an orgasmic low end sound.
The tweeters are very crisp, not harsh, yet get loud and cut through 145db with no problem, the tweeters extend down low resulting in a perfect crossover point imo, they bring so much life to the music that you would think they cost several hundred dollars, so far they are the best component set i have ever heard.
I would recommend these to anyone.
Comparing them to the d.a.t component set i have heard, these mids are much more accurate, and the tweets ar much more quick.
This is of course my opinion.
Sq 10/10 (best components i have ever heard)
Loudness 8/10 (they were begging for more power)
Power handling 10/10 (they can take way more than rated)
Ease of use 9/10 (the tweeters would be better with push terminals or spades)
Price 10/10 (dirt cheap)
Overall 9.5/10 (they are number 1 in my book, with just a couple flaws)
Durability 6/10 (after use, and break in, they go to hell)
I suggest everyone gets a set before they sell out.
