okay i have infinity 6.1 perfects in my reg cab truck now. i dont really like the sound of them. given they= make the amp go into protect all the time, tweets are harsh at moments and un hearable at others. but i dont have the door sealed with deadener but i dont think im gonna like the sound outta them. what should i do? sell and buy new mids? or work them a little and stick with them.

you can go a few routes. look into why that amp is going into prtection mode for one. deaden the **** out of the doors, and if you still arent happy with them, try a good EQ, and if you still arent happy with them and the amp is still goofin off, ditch the whole setup and get new amp/comps,

If you cannot provide a proper enclosure for a set of components go with coaxials, they are designed to sound decent in horrible mounting locations.

i dunno but i checked everything with a dmm and still cant find the problem so i plan to run a wire form the positive slot to the remote slot so its always on and see if that works. its in a reg cab s10. i have and eq and still dont like the sound but i think if the amp goes well with this experiment then im gonna get silk tweeters and try that

Check to see if your drivers are being grounded (terminal touching metal).

A friend of mine ran into the same problem the other week and his amp would run into protection all the time.

i have a clarion 7 band. they just really sound like high pitch distrotion. i think i may go for the silk over the metal tweeters. or they may just be busted i dunno.
