Finally after having them sit in their boxes for 5 months, got them installed

well technically its not the MLK2's, i just bought the actual speakers from the set, sans the xover, save a big chunk of $$$, the xovers are a work of art, and you get a huge case

no pics of mids and deadening etc, forgot

running active with the 3sixty.2 and t6004, xover at 2250hz 12db slope for each at the moment, eq is flat until we get time to get the RTA out and really play with it, little bit of T/A to mess with them, just quick ear judgement, but they sound AMAZING, ton of midbass, and everything is so smooth and detailed compared to my Pro60s, easily the best sounding speakers ive ever heard, and they look hella nice, if you have the money to spend by all means do i reccommend hertz millies, i could listen to music all day in the truck now, with the Pro60s i always had the hp xover high, like 110hz @24DB, they sounded like garbage down low and would bottom out it seemed sometimes, got these xover at 65hz 12db no problem what so ever, they sound awsome, might raise it later just to be safe, not sure yet

they sound great with flat eq, cant wait till we get some time to eq them

first time going active, everything came out great, but like everyone says, just takes lots of time, if you have any pointers throw them out

cant, employee discount stuff, this forum is watched...:uhoh:

mrsp is lik 2200 for the set, separately woofers retail ~600-650 and tweeters are about 650-700 iirc, xover are a big chunk and then the fancy case

Get used to sitting in your car because once you go active it takes forever to tune them just right. Nice speakers!

not exaclty, it's just that you'll tend to get complusive in trying to get the best sound/image/tonality.
