If so do you find the tweeter to be a tad on the harsh side? Its not too bad but they do seem alittle too sharp with some music. They are in the dash, stock location.

I have them on the -4 setting on the crossover. I'll have to play with the EQ alittle more.

There really isn't any room to put them in the kicks on my truck. I think it would lower the sound stage alot also?

Mine are mounted coaxially on the woofer and in the stock location about halfway down the door, right by my knees. I don't think they sound harsh, but then again I have some hearing loss from too many years of too loud music.

Yes they are!

Before I went active, I had to pad the tweets 12 db before I could play them loud in comfort.

Wow, thats alot. But they do seem to over power the mid alot.
You have your Pro's running active? if so how are they?

I would like to try them active. I would need a 4 channel amp. Do you know what your crossover settings are for the mid and tweeter? I would be using my Alpine 9887 head unit.

I did a 12db on both and crossed them at 2000 & 4000

on rap and reggae they are not harsh at all. i always called them "sharp" and i loved the sound.

but one day i put on jimi hendrix and it wasnt even on full volume and i swear to god my ears were killing me.

if you are going to use them for rock, i suggest you eq them down a bit lol

I think i'm going to pick up a 4 channel amp and try them active using my 9887.
If not i'm always going to wonder how it would sound.

Ok, I got a 4 channel amp on the way. So i'm going to give it a try.
That would be 2K for mid and 4K and up for the tweet?
Also, did anyone ever find out where they are crossed at using the crossovers?

cross the mid and the tweets at the same frequency. Going active is very nice!! Focal 6.5s + Sundown SAX-100.4 = secks

Besides hearing some Focals for the first time today, I got a chance to listen to the Pro60s too. In my option, the Bostons sound so much better than the Focals, even the more expensive ones. It just sounded so "lively".

The first time i heard the Pro 60s I was blown away but that was also on a soundboard at an audio store. Very clear and detailed with good midbass. an open room isn;t a very good place to audition components though... in car response may be very different. I have a pair of pro 50 mids in my living room I have never installed...

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. But ****, those things sounded good.

I would like to know what they are crossed at using the crossover. I will start around the 2-4K range and go from there. They should sound nice active.

I'm tellin you, cross them over at the exact fequency when your gayness kicks in. It'll be perfect.
