i just bought a set of boston pro60's for my mini for up front...right now im not going to do a rear fill, but im thinkin about maybe ordering 2 of the 6x9 tangband's http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=264-837

if i put those in the back, and i had like a 4 ch amp, would i need any other crossover for the tand bangs?

or what are some other 6x9's i could throw back there? no one ever rides back there...you have to be like really small to even fit....and at that, you still wouldnt be comfertable:laugh:

If you use the 880, doesn't it have a xover you could use?

its for the mini.

im prally gonna use an alpine 9855.

or cleansweep + factory HU

99% most likely the alpine though. its black and can change the colors to match my interior dash lights.

Nope, you should be fine with the LP xovers built in to the amp.

what would i set them to?

also, could i run a 4 ch amp and be able to send like 200w to my pro60's up front, and like 90 to the tang bands? the tang bands are 8 ohm so that would help out with power cuase if its like 170w @ 4 ohm, since theyre 8, theyd get aroudn 90 right?

the bostons are 3 ohm..

Not sure I would run them full range do to their Frequency range of 35-350 Hz. I agree use the on boarb x-over on the 4 channel that should be fine. They look like they would work great. Cut them off at 350hz and should blend pretty good with those Bostons. Not sure what the Boston freq range is.

Set the LPF to 350hz, what they are rated to play up to.

hehehe fair enough.

How about:

Xenon X200.4
Infinity 7541a
JBL PX300.4
Kicker KX650.4 or KX850.4
Sundown SAX-100.4
Alpine MRV-F545 or PDX-4.150
JL 450/4
Eclipse XA4000
US Amps XT-1600.4


With the TB's LP at about 80 Hz and the Boston's HP at about 75 Hz, you should be good.

boston pro60s are 50Hz-22kHz

i just think tang bands will add hella midbass and make it soudn that much better, plus they are just rear fill and no one ever sits back there.

another one i was looking at is the boston SX95's....60 w rms...coaxial speaker...

No but he said through something out, so I through something out.

By the way correct me if I am wrong but those Tang are 8ohm correct.

Oh good call. Re: 6.5 ohms. So yes, they are 8 Ohm each.

The other 2 TB 6x9 subs at PE.com are 4 ohm, however.

If they are anything close to there description I would think you would get some very strong mid bass with them.----Perfect for constructing a narrow-baffle subwoofer

i heard them, i like the midbass, but i figured, why not throw these tangs in the rear? no one sits back there, the stock 6x9s back there now have pretty good bass...they arent coaxiles either, they are just the mids...so i the back seats, all u really hear is bass anyways...and the tangs are like 47 each or so...lol

Give me a link. Never mind. Its the motor design, its different and couple specs.
