View Full Version : loud/most efficient 4ohm 6.5" mids?

looking for the loudest setup i can run on my sand rail. planned amp is a Massive audio nx4 (200x4 @ 2 ohms). small enough i can find a place to mount it.

HU will be a clarion 7 band EQ and ipod/phone. no need to run a HU, i have FM on my phone, and wont use a cd becuase itll just skip from the bumps.

need 4 mids and 4 tweets, or 4 coax mids.

right now, im thinking 4 Powerbass 4xl 6.5" mids with 4 db drive p55d tweeters, with 100wrms to each driver.

any other ideas? no eminence or selenium since they're 8ohm (they make a 4ohm eminence 6, but the powerbass i've heard sounds better and plays higher than the eminence).

so yea... ideas? reason it needs to be LOUD is becuase the motor is right behind my ears and is very loud (currently no muffler) so its veryyyyyyyyyy loud lol..dont need any marine crap becuase it doesnt come out in the rain, so water is not an issue.

the only thing i dont like about the massive amp is the crossover isnt very flexible. only goes to 750hz, thatll work find for the mids (id HPF them at like 80-100hz) but the tweets ill have to run caps on to cross them around like 3khz.

eminence alpha 6" 94DB 1w/1m and they handle around 200 RMS when crossed over correctly.

its either between those or the powerbass 4XL mids. both are pretty loud, the Powerbass sound better IMO and from what i've heard from others as well. i only have 100 w per driver anyways so..lol deff going with the db drive p55d tweets though, they are LOUD. lol
