I don't see why it wouldn't.

The only sort of processor I've had is my brother's old amp, which I soldered a headphone jack into. Right now I'm running a pair of Co-Ax in series to achieve a 2-ohm resistance, so the amp is pushing out like 30 or 35 watts to share. But it's getting mad distorted :crap:

Anyway, I'm gunna wire it back to series so they can share 15 watts. :(

ANYWAY, I was just wondering, could I use car speakers for HT speakers? I wanna put a modest HT set-up together and wanted to save money... and I have a few pairs of speakers hanging around. What do you think?

And what kind of enclosure should I use for the mids? Just sealed with about .25-.5 cuft?

i had a pair of sony 6x9's sitting on the shelf running free air off a cheapo boom-box type deal for months a long while back. it worked fine untill i got rid of them.
