I have a 04 Impala SS with a pretty large storage compt. in the forward section of the center console. My goal was to increase bass up front and still have it look factory, and not hack the h3ll out of everything.

The point is, It added almost double the mid-bass. I have Pioneer REVs 6.5 in the doors which are deadened and sealed.

Ill post some pics later.

Awsome sub...

how much does it run for?

are you running it mono since its a single sub?

xover the revs @ 80hz and up and the w3 @ 70hz and down it will sound much much betta.:veryhapp:

Uh.. why shoud he gap the mid/subbass 10hz? You won't get as many spikes with mid/subbass as you will with highs. 80/80 with the same slope would be good IMO, however in my experiences the rev's can play effectively down toe 50hz.

under laps can be used and sometimes work well between the sub and mid-bass. with 12db slopes a lil under lap can be good.

i have my sub at 63hz/12db and my fronts at 80hz/12db. sounds best that way in my ride.

Right now Im running the REVs 80 and up and the W3 at about 150 low pass. I know its a large overlap but it sounds pretty good. Im not running the subs right now but when I do Ill probably run it from 80 - 150.

I would try running your subs at 60 and under 12/db slope. The 6w3 at 60 -130 at 12/db and then then your mids from 130 up with 18/db slope. Thats what i think would sound good. Trying to keep the subwoofers below 60 hz and mixing it up with the 6w3 should keep the bass up front.

Pics of it installed or it didn't happen.

I used the storage compt. The sub was facing forward. I was a pita process. I had to remove the center console and measure and design the enclosure to fit. The final product was seamless.

That's pretty ****! How's it sound! I did something similar and I was deathly afraid it would rattle my entire dash. But it sounds great!

I decided once I installed my Focal 165K2P's with 300w rms per side that the center sub was not really doing much, so I took it out.

When I had it though, it did make up for the lack of bass the REVS had.

Your install looks nice BTW.

:laugh: Not really. Crossing them both at 80 hz would (theoretically) create a large peak @ 80 hz. Crossovers don't "stop" the subwoofer from playing >80 hz, it drops the volume down 12 dbs per octave. Allowing the subwoofer to rolloff around 60 hz and the mids around 80 allow for them to blend better because, while they will both still be playing 70 hz, both will not be playing full volume at the same time. Crossing both at 80 hz will have them both playing 80 hz at max volume, resulting in a peak there.

Thanks for the info....prolly the most important thing i learned today....:)

Depends on your slopes.

That's a pretty big blanket statement with only half accurate information.

First, an 80hz crossover point won't have both drivers playing at "max volume" as the crossover point is, by definition, where the signal has been attenuated -3db (Butterworth) or -6db (Linkwitz-Riley).

Second, we're talking about car audio here. With the odd driver locations and odd acoustics, it's very difficult to predict outcomes. In some vehicles, a gap might be necessary. In others using the same HP/LP frequency and slope or same HP/LP frequency with varying slopes may work best. In others, it might even be best to overlap the crossover frequencies.

Lastly, you have to define what type of filter you are using, as that will affect the summed response even in "ideal" circumstances (i.e. non-car audio). Two LR filters with the same HP/LP frequency can sum flat.
