They will be powered by two of the channels on my MB Quart QAA4250 (250 watts rms x 4) and crossed over from my DRZ9255 :p:

Still undecided on tweeter.

gonna be a dedicated midbass? interesting i'd like to hear any reviews on these. i'm looking for DIY mid right now to replace my slc mids. right now i'm pretty much set on the seas lotus performance mids but i'd like to hear some other stuff as well.

I bought them to try out in a 2 way set using a semi large format tweeter. I'm thinking the Vifa XT25

If I had the money I would have gotten the Seas Nextel instead.

For striaght up midbass, if you can fit an 8" check out the Peerless 830491

So you're planning on a 2 way right?

Very nice :)

Do you have any ideas on what tweeter you'd like to go with?

Should be a very nice front stage when it's complete.

I'm anxiously awaiting my return to a DIY active frontstage so I can screw around with speakers.

Those Peerless mids look very nice. The 4" over on DIYMA got a pretty good review.

^I am considering the Vifa XT25 Ring Radiator, Hiquphon OWII.

Not sure though, still researching what will work best for my situation.

The rest of the system will be the Arc Audio Flatline 12D2 powered by a Rockford 750S.

DRZ9255 will handle all the processing.

Yeah I like the 4" ers too. I might get those if I can figure out how to make kicks without taking my footrest(my truck is a 6 spd manual)

They make the vifa for car audio applications (mounting easier) I don't know where to find it. I only know it exists because ascendant audio is using it in thier new componet system.

I'm gonna try them in my doors, but I'm having my doubts that they will fit. Would you be interested in them if I can't use them?

yeah Polk's using a version in their 600+$ flagship component set too. Also Alpine uses them in the SPX-177R

yea i was thinking of dynaudio mids but a little on the expensive side. i think the mw160gt go for like 130 a piece of so. plus i don't need a custom crossover, i'll just use my HU.

I sent you a PM, I might have found a hookup if you're interested.

Or if anyone else want's a set of these mids I found a hookup on one pair, cheaper than Madisound, PM me.
