yo i am trying to better my mids and hi's. i have a power acoustik gothic 800 watt 4 channel amp.I have channels 1 & 2 powering a pair of Hollywood Sound Lab components(6.5"). i am replacing my 6x9's in the bach dash. but need help. plz advise me. i was wondering whether to go with another pair of components, either 4 or 2 ohm, each could be wired to a channel, or run 2 8" Eminence mids by bridging the amp. the eminence are 8 ohms, bridge to get a 4ohm load.also if i go with the eminence i wod run a pair of tweeters,but power them through the deck. PLZ HELP ME!! oh one thing, since i have a pair of components in the front doors, can i just run the Eminence 8's in the back and bridge the amp to power them, or will i need tweeters for the 8's?

THANX TO ALL WHO HELPED.

What do you wish to accomplish with these speakers?

The front speakers should be your primary focus. If you are a "rear fill" kind of person, and wish to retain rear fill, then I would suggest sticking with a quality co-axial speaker.

So, I wouldn't recommend going with either of the options you presented. Rather look into a good quality co-axial driver.

But your Eminence idea isn't a good option at all, so I would completely erase that from the list.

I would also suggest that if you are wanting better overall sound, to look into upgrading your front speakers rather than the rear speakers.

so dont go recommending full range drivers with a grain of salt.

they work good to pair with a guitar amp. or maybe as mids for a concert for 50,000. but absolutly not in car enviornment. there are just so many reasons why full range drivers do not suit car enviornemnt - i dont even want to get started.

in the end, it comes down to the owner, but i would never be caught dead with anything like that in my car. :laugh:

You're right. But only because your post count isn't that high.
YOU'RE the feg with 3.1K+ posts.
You have a tendency to rack up a high post fairly quickly when you're part of the moderation team.
Secondly you have a tendency to do the same thing when you're constantly on responding to people's questions with answers that might accomplish them something rather than push what you like 24/7/365 whether or not that suggestion fits into their overall system design or not...(what I'm getting at here is just because the use of all those Eminence drivers works well for your needs doesn't necessarily equate to it working out well for everyone)

You're right it does come down to the owner of the vehicle. Therefore, you should shut your ****ing face and keep your smugness to yourself. If this guy wants to use eminence in his vehicle, they're more than sufficent speakers. Guitar or not, they get loud as hell and keep up with SPL subs in a way your stand components can not and will not. They are not sound quality speakers, but neither is his system. Now, I don't see the need for 16 of them in his car, but that is his decision. So to each it's own.

One thing I love to do with people like you in real life is tell them why they'll be in debt their whole life, probably have to get a fulltime job after retirement, and never see more than $500 in their bank account at a time. :cool: So you keep being the audio king.

well, i do have a pair of cd2 hlcds and cx62's with ~300w and a nice little active crossover. but good luck getting your "pro audio horns" to fit in your car lol.

im not saying pro audio gear cant be quality equipment, im saying for a car application, its not practical nor is it great SQ equipment because of the enviornment.

dont get your ******* in a bunch because you happen to have the equipment that we are telling this guy not to use, theres just much better stuff to spend your money on than EV speakers for a car application :)

so chill out, relax with your eminence EV stuff, listen to it from 3 blocks away if you want to. i would just never use it :)

as far as my equipment, i bought it to get relativly loud, but specifically to sound good, have a great sound stage, and imaging. thats what I believe a car should sound like.

to each his own. thats just my 2 cents. :laugh:
