Are you running 3 way active? If not, then I would suggest against running two midbass/midranges up to the tweeter highpass as you will need a lot of processing to fix combing issues and imaging...

What you CAN do is run one of the midranges up to the tweeter highpass, then run the second in parallel, but with a passive lowpass around 150hz...or if you have the channels both run active...

Or, run eights :D

sorry, need to clear things up. I am looking for midrange not midbass.

the mach 5's play good up until around 4-5k. Highpass around 60up. Some people even run them full range without a lowpass, using them full range and letting the speaker naturraly roll off. Playing that high you should be able to use pretty much any tweeter.

I picked up a set of these from hessdawg last week:

http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=264323

and so far I'm very satisfied with the performance for $90 SHIPPED.

I'm using them in a 2 way active setup crossed at 80Hz, 12db/oct, and 3.2kHz, 12db/oct, and they sound great. Very nice midrange detail, with a nice midbass punch.

He shipped fast, and communicated quickly, too. I'd highly recommend that deal.

**** i need more monies..

I also found these cheap guys
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=290-307

Skeptical bout spending any $ on something that cheap but what do you guys think bout the specs?
power handling is perfect for my setup.

Most important they have a 3yr warranty. I figure if they dont work out in a car i can send em towards a future HT build?
any input?

im not worried bout depth.. there going in a custom FGpannel and will have plenty of space.

i would like to grab those ID but i cant afford both sets now and would not like to have to pay full price when i can afford the 2nd set=/ sorry im a cheap *** looking out for good deals :laugh:


I also see some CDT midranges going for under 100$ a set.

I'd seriously ask hessdawg more info about his ID OEM 6.5" mids. They've been great to me so far, and are a great deal for the price.

If your shopping Partsexpress look into the Dayton Reference series. The 7" midbasses have led me to the 8's. I'm a budget guy and they sound great.

i can vouch on the mach 5 mids being used without a hp filter. sounds great that way imo. great mids but i think x/o should be around 3k at most.

well ****.. i decided to just blow 165$ and get 2 sets of the ID OEM Speakers from hessdawg.


They are 4 ohm and i will wire them in parallel to achieve ~100 watts per speaker.
Sound good enough?

Good deal on those! I've had my pair installed for about a week now, and I really like mine. They're getting about 110w a side, and sound great.
