and there horn tweeter

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=264-362&scqty=4

i know id need a crossover and what not, but they would be powered by a XI olympus.

what all should i know about this setup?

there are some selenium supertweets in the classifieds.

but not a bad choice at all.

thats why im wanting to go with this setup itd be cheaper and probably sound louder than most of the component sets out there. whats different though? i know that selenium woofer starts to screammm up high when it goes over rated power.

those same tweets are being sold in the classifieds, for less $$ shipped brand new.

good choices, should get really loud with the right power

thats the reason i bring this up cause i dont know what i would run for a crossover and im sure those tweets scream at low power so i would need some sort or balance. ie, a eq.

Good if you want absolutely no accuracy, but tons of volume.

ive got 16 of the selenium 6" mids.

they're loud, and sound **** good for the price they cost..once i seal up my door panels, i think the bass response on them will improve greatly as well.

orangecounty are you running them with active? what kind of crossover are you using for those mids and the tweeters?

im gonna be using the crossover in my pioneer 880 HU. it has a built in active 3 way crossover. when i get my sundown 100.4 (the newest version) it has a very flexable active crossover on it, so that 100.4 will power all 16 tweets, and ill set the crossover on that accordingly. the 2x 100.2's will power all 16 mids, and ill set the crossover on that, as well as my HU. im eventually switching to a carputer, and they make software programs you can buy/download that can act as a crossover, as well as EQ software, too.

any other questions lemme know, when i get it all in, you can come hear it, im in tampa not orlando

vj ( orange ) will be able to tell you a lot more about the mids and sitting up any crossovers moreso than I could. But yea, if you are interested in the tweets at all, I do have 18 of them i'm trying to move for well under any other price on the web shipped.

just looking to switch to something different.
