    Re: Mid level SQL Build Input.

    What exactly are your goals for this system? Is this going to be a demonstration vehicle for the store? Are you going to compete? Do you have a certain level of loudness you prefer to listen to? I've found it doesn't take much money invested into equipment to be able to get a really good sounding 1-seat car at 90 dB, which seems to be no louder than vehicles are judged for in SQ competition.

    Without going line-by-line over your proposed equipment list, you could probably slash than by 50% and still have some incredible potential. What you do with that equipment and the vehicle is more important. This is why keep_hope_alive keeps talking about hundreds of hours spent on the vehicle, yet he doesn't use thousand dollar speaker sets. If you want expensive speakers to show people what Audison has to offer, then go for it. As a side benefit, you'll have better results getting your money back if you ever decide to sell the equipment than if you bought run-of-the-mill products.

    no its my personal vehicular, no competitions, i usually listen at "extreme volumes" which is why i wanted more drivers. Once the product goes in its never coming out of the car and i will never sell it.

    With use of Audisons high end lineup, I would personally go simple two way active front and really give them some ******* power; you'll be surprised!

    Re: Mid level SQL Build Input.

    For me less speakers are usually better and way easier to tune. I would start with the 3'' and the tweeter in the a pillar and dont do anything permenant until you get it where you like it. Some like apillars other hate them and call them one seat cars. In the front doors if you can get an 8" to fit, leave it there or get a decent 6.5" that plays the range you like. Some pull off multiple midbass others cant. From my experience, a good single midbass in a door usually sounds better than a crappier dual set up. I wouldnt do a 3 way in the rear. Save your money unless this is some show car and you just have to have it. That is also the deal with the center. See how it sounds before you add a center. Some cars image decent enough and dont need it, others it helps.
