Any one run dual components up front? If so pics on how the dual tweets are placed?

I am thinking about another set of germs, since adding a midbass is $250, I can get the rest of the set for another $200, the tweets by them selves are like $300 so I figure might as well pick up a whole nother set.

Cuz I might as well get the full set, better value IMO. + I'd like to get a lot louder (I live in FL now) without putting in 341234512345234 eminence in my car (I would never do that ****).

No one??

I could glass them in the with the mids but I don't want it to lower my sound stage.

Don't use the second pair of tweets. Keep them as spares or something. Why spend $200 to save $100 when it's for something that you don't need?

Any reason behind not using the second tweets? I do want the car quite a bit louder.

Cancellation will result in ****** sound and possibly not as loud.

But if I placed the tweets properly wouldn't there be no cancellation?

There will be cancellation. Because of the short wavelengths involved, any difference in pathlength will result in areas of cancellation and areas of reinforcement. With only a pair of tweets (one left and one right) the stereo effect keeps most of the cancellation from being an issue. Add a second tweet on each side and it will sound bad. Just plain bad.

If you want screaming loud, get a set of horns. CSR got 126dB out of a set back in the day. Not loud for a sub, but for mids and highs that is absolutely ear piercing.

How much do horns usually run?

You should just get a set of Z6's or something. i'm not trying to insult you but i wouldn't trust you trying to install two sets and making them sound any less than half ***.

when you're running 12's in your caddy its possible you could outrun sound waves and have horrible time alignment issues. something to think about

That's why I asked for opinions before I actually did it.

Anyways I could throw some slicks on there and break the sound barrier and really **** things up :eek: :eek:

honestly, if you just want to be loud there are probably some other options. for instance horns get very loud and sound **** good. maybe you could team those up with some 7" mids? i guess that doesn't really help too much though, because it requires alot of tuning.

Yea, I am not really trying to get into buying some EQ with 1234123 features, I'd like to stick with the xover/EQ on the amp/HU, let alone 4 days of tuning the **** thing.

Any other input on how this can be succesfully done?
