View Full Version : what active mids are suited better?

09-05-2007, 01:06 PM
the vehicle is a 2006 altima doors are deadened and they will be going into the stock door location. i already ordered seas neo alums tweets. HU is a 880prs amps are old school mtx thunder 2300's (love em). I dont want to cut or anything so id like to stick with 6.5's.

I was looking at the seas cd18re-mds but they sold out just in time for me to not get them.

SO choices are:
maybe a rainbow mid as i can get a discount on em. maybe a kick model?
or these vifas--http://www.madisound.com/catalog/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=153&products_id=1060

only thing im worried about is tht the vifas wont have a strong midbass. Ive never heard them but i just want to make sure that it will be there. this is also due to the fact that I am saving for a 12 Q. so it need to be able to hold me over until that time.

thanks in advance.

This is my first system and ive been a lurker on here and other forums such as diymobileaudio and ive learned quite alot. my question is is this gonna be a good first system? i tried to do it slow and get decent parts that wont need immediate upgrade. do it once , do it right!

sorry for the book.

diyma has LOTS of info on mids, so do some searching. Plus plenty of reviews on there. Not as many run active on this forum. Also check out elitecaraudio....

i know, im over there alot too but theres not really any reviews on the mid. and most proplr over there run 7's or out of my budget. i dont go on elite much tho never really liked it so ill go check there now. and as far as not many on theis site running active ive noticed that too its like the site is geared more towards subs and raw power then anything. but ive learded a ton from all of you and i thank you. BRB

and those hd3's must own

Don't worry about whether or not the Vifas have good midbass or not, they don't. Not even close, so you can close the book on that one.

Here are some good options



I'd probably lean towards the Peerless.

should i worry about the .39 qts being as they arent going in pods? and will these give me the mid vocals and midbass i want?
