Hi guys,

I want some opinions here on possibly using 6" mid-bass as my rear speakers. Current set up is this:

Vehicle~ Ford Excursion
HU~ Eclipse 8053
FR SP~ Morel Integra 6"
Rear Sp~none
Amp~ Arc Audio xxk4050
Sub Amp~Arc Audio xxk1500 ([email protected])
Sub~ JL12w6v.2

Maybe some inexpensive Daytons or peerless or ?? Somewhere around $150 or less for the pair. I believe my Eclipse will allow me to cross the rears at 63,80,100,125 and 200 htz. Don't get me wrong, the Morels sound spendid but could it be better? All 4 doors are Raamat and ensolite as well as the rear barn doors on the Excursion.

What do some of you think?

no....move the mid bass up front with you.

wait...do you have comps up front already? If not get a good comp set and put it up front

I don't have comps. The Morels are a point source type speaker. The tweeter sits in the center of the woofer. I really don't want to run any additional speaker wire as the amps are a ways from the speakers. Trying to get imagining correct with comps can be a real pain as they can be put on A-pillars, the sail panel, the doors in the kick-panel. I don't want to play trial and error with placement. I really don't have the time, the patience or the know-how to properly implemnet comps. The x-over can be a pain also trying to place.

The Morels actually sound really good as the are. Sounds like maybe leave well enough alone??
