When i get my new car I plan to set up an active front stage. I plan to buy usd horns but Im having trouble deciding on a mid. I am trying to decide between id chameleons, xxxs, and eu-7000s. Any suggestions on what would work best for my application? Also, I plan on putting them in around .2 cube pods if I am able to make them.

You'd be suprised....

The eu700's are supposed to be strictly subwoofers, so I'd use 'em like that only.
The ID CX6.2 or CX6.4 (the actual mids, the components are those+xover+tweet) are decent. They have a large magnet so be forewarned.
I haven't heard/used/seen the xxx mids although I wish I had.

A good option to consider are the IDQ6.5 or IDQ8s that float around here from time to time. They usually go for about 200 a pair for either or. They're old, and they're kinda rare, but they're worth it.

Here ya' go:

well right now i have the 4 ohm chameleon set. I was thinking about keeping the mids and using them with the horns.
