I recently talked to image dynamics about my mid that stopped working and they gave me a 130 quote for a recone, which is pretty ridiculous for a 6.5 inch recone but whatever. I was wondering if I would be fine running the AA poly mids off of the image dynamics crossovers with the nx-30 tweets. They handle the same power as the cxs4's and should be pretty identical and output so i think they would be fine, but i would like to know if there is anything im looking over. I would much rather spend 80 bucks on two new mids than 130 on getting one reconed.

It just depends on how high the x-over point is and how well the AA mids play in the higher octaves.

They play well.

Should work fine. At least until you can go active.

how are you going to cross your speakers? i see that you have an 8445 which doesn't have a built in crossover. As a suggestion i suggest the Dayton RS180 4 ohm debucked version. partsexpress sell them for $32 a mid. Cheaper than than the AA (not by much but still ;)) and have been getting great reviews every where it has been tested.

yea it kinda ***** that I cant go active with my hu because ive been wanting to try it out. I cant find any crossover points for the crossover that came with the chameleon set. I checked id's website and there wasnt anything there.

Don't worry the AA's will be ble to handle. They don't have any break-up till nearly 5k ;). Much better than I can say about the Daytons. :)

true daytons don't break up until about 2khz but i dunno how i don't really want my mids playing that high anyways. actually i would try out the AA mids but mounting depth is too freakin big.

anyways, first find out how you are going to cross your speakers first. maybe you can use a combination of your HU and amp to cross them.

well i still have the crossover from the chameleon set so i was just planning on using them for now. i know what you mean with the mounting depth...i drive a honda prelude and fitting something as deep as those is challenging with glassin

They're not that deep, really. Use a .75" MDF ring spacer.

The ID's are HUGE. The AA's use a VERY SMALL neo motor.

I have both of them in my posession currently except it's the CX62's ;)
