If you dont want to waste the money and buy the stuff right the first time Image dynamics is a very nice set of components

it's a combination of both. its how you aim the speakers that gives you imaging not just a certain speaker.

this is true but the tweeter has more of an impact on imaging as the lower the frequency gets the less directional it becomes. higher frequencies are very direction dependant.

Which set of Image Dynamics?
And as far as my situation is concerend the speakers would be going into the factory speaker location. I've looked into pods but they're expesive... shops around here want $400 and up for a set.. and that's just basic kick panel pods..

When you say "imagining" do you mean vocal imagining(which is more midrange/midbass dependant) or just overall staging(which is effected by both)?


As for choices for drivers...It is more dependant on locations and what kind of prep work is put in place more than the driver themselves.

I mean overall Staging. And the comps would be going into where the factory speakers went.

Then is comes down to crossover points/slopes and type of options your processor has.

Neither works in a vaccum, it starts in how they are positioned and aimed in relation to one another and how the system is tuned. Most factory tweeter mounting locations have more to do with where the interior design allows space than what is best for imaging. Depending on things like on/off axis response, some higher quality drivers will play better in crappy factory mounting locations than factory speakers did but really if you will be doing this you'll need to pay attention to phasing, time alignment, and the EQ bands in the 8-12K range.

With factory setups it's usually woofers in normal door locations and tweeters in sails or tweets in dash because those are the most convenient areas. Alot of times I think they try dash locations to incorporate a sort of mechanical time alignment into the mix but then the poor control of windshield reflection becomes an issue. Some of the best factory setups I've ever heard actually involve the tweeters firing almost directly at eachother from the windshield panels.
