Well thanks to the help of wettnudel's (Nick) I finally got my **** installed. He did an awesome job, just need to clean up the mids and what not, but onto the pics. System consist of:

JVC KD-AR8500 - 3 way active crossover, time alignment, 5v preouts, dsp, the works you would expect from a high end unit.

Vifa 1" Ceramic Textile tweeters, neo motor, flared

Mpyre 65M mids, neo motor, carbon fiber cone, big

MB Quart DSC4125 125x4 @ 4 ohms rms, really **** amp with lots of features :D

No sub, finally sold it, as well as everything. If anything, when i learn fiberglass, might do a killer 3 way active up front. Or just get a pair of 8" subs and do a t-line

Got them from amartin, and they are amazing, and my doors arent even sealed, thats another project next year, right now i am just enjoying the clarity of this new setup.

HU is awesome, still learning how to use all the features, gonna play with time alignment and see how that works out.

Cool

I've been running an active setup with those mids for a while now. I like the punch they deliver but the midbass just doesn't carry through aswell as I'd like it. Their nice mids though

Good tweets for what you paid. Now just finish out the bottom end of the spectrum and you'll have a very nice sounding car

would the mids not fit behind the pannel?

Nice, I didn't know JVC had a 3way active capable HU. If you can manage to get some 8's in your doors you'll never want to go back.

its not 3way front capable its 2way + sub

That's still 3way capable right? Isn't 4way active a 3way fronstage plus sub?

louder and better than my DLS MS6A tweeters thats for **** sure, then again that was passive, either way this combo blows the DLS out the water.

I think he is saying you need a 4 way active head unit to add a dedicated mid-bass, 3 way active is tweeter, woofer, and sub-woofer.

Install looks very nice, get that door sealed as soon as possible, should help out a lot.

Good luck,

Well i got the gain tuned just a hair on the tweets, right off the bat they sounded amazing, just turned it up a tad. They are 50rms, the mids on the other hand, i am going to throw as much as i can lol.

Looks good, I have the same amp on the way here, :D

Love that HU, I would have bought one from Sonicelectronix when they were at the closeout price, but sold out before I could snatch one up :crap:

Overall, nice man, cant wait til my 4125 gets here :)

Yeah i think i got the last one cause when i bought mines, i went back like a week later to see some reviews and it was discontinued. I have a rare unit, and the amp is simple bad *** for a Maxxsonics product. Your gonna love it, best $136 ever spent

how do you have the BP set for the mids?

Nice gear. I ran an all VIFA front stage 10 or so years
ago. Really nice quality drivers for the price. Back then
they made a VERY nice 3" mid. You said in your earlier
posts you may do a 3way front stage when you learn
how to glass. Subscribe to my thread and I'll do a step
by step process for you when I start my door panels. Its
really a very easy process, to me it takes more time to
clean up than it is working with the stuff. Epoxy resins
though more expensive can be cleaned up with vinegar
believe it or not.

If you do end up going for a 3way front stage it would be
really cool to do so with all Vifa. Something you don't see
often and IMHO cant be beat for the price. If you go the
Quart route years back they made an 8" woofer that to
me is as clean as really high end 400+ buck drivers. They
are however, very hard to find. If you go VIFA look for the
3" mid, and I think 7" woofer.

Someone asked you how those tweeters sound or compare
them to something similar. I would have to say they are very
much like the silk dome Polk MM's in the late 90's or the
Infinity Kappa's same vintage. Really smooth, not harsh at
all and pretty efficient.

Very nice writeup, and I believe I remember the Quart 8"s you were referring too, my cousin had a set of them from one of the high end shops sometime in the mid to late 90s......and I LOVED the sound of the Polk MM's from 98 to 99 esp the tweeters...just could not afford the $400 price tag back then lol. They were so smooth though...

THANKS TEZ! I had hoped it made sense, often once
I take my meds things don't come out the way I mean
them.

I don't recall the old POLK MM'S costing 400 bucks. The
number that comes to mind is 199 for the tweeters. Just
the same, that was pretty expensive for its time. Oddly
when I was looking for my old wiring I came across some
of those tweeters. I thought they were long gone. I knew
I still had the MM6510s(guessing that is correct). Come to
think of it the old MTX Black Gold tweeters were also very
good, accurate without being too harsh or bright.

The Quart 8's that I referenced were the ones in this photo

The grills cost nearly as much as some of todays components,
I think I paid 100 or so each:wow: but worth it to me. I cant
wait to hear them once again.
