View Full Version : Coaxials that can be ran active?

02-16-2008, 06:40 PM
Im looking to run active 6.5 up front but lack a decent location for a tweeter, to keep it simple I would rather have coaxials.

My old Infinity Kappas were coaxial, but had external crossovers. Anyone know of any more like that? I dont want to rip apart my Revs....

Why not make kicks? Tweets won't work in A-pillar?

No, the stock door location is good enough for me, plus my car is still too new for me to start tearing apart!

aren't all coaxials active?

The PCE 216's look nice. What would a good price for them? A lot of places say they're not in stock, woofersetc has them for 199.99. Is that a decent price for these?

you can find em on ebay for ~150 sometimes.

but 199 is a good deal. i paid 310 for mine.

ID CX comps or XS comps can have the tweet mounted coaxial style.

They're talking about the ones with a mid and a tweeter, but the tweeter is mounted on axis. Most of the time they're hooked up like normal coax's, with a passive crossover built onto the basket.

If I judged a book by its cover, I would say that the ID CX's look pretty cheezy with that cardboard outer surround like speakers from about 15 years ago. Im sure it has some special purpose.. but I see they're pretty expensive. Are they actually that good? Im not trying to bash your reccomendations, Im just curious.

Nothing wrong with a cardboard outer ring...function is much more important than form.
