This is what I'm thinking. Would it work???
I have a set of Hertz HSK165 running passive at this time.
I was thinking on running active with the tweets and a set of Legatia 3" in pillars
The HSK 6.5's in kicks . Peerless 8's mid bass in doors and my two sub's. behind my seats.
93 chevy single cab
Amps 2-100x2 sound system xion
1-160x4 sound system xion
I have all the drivers
Would the MS8 run this set up???
And would this set up work???

I don't see any reason to do that....

Why 6.5s and 8s?

Us there isn't a reason to run that many drivers...

My thinking was to use the L 3's to raise the stage band pass up high use the 6.5 for mids and use the 8's as mid bass.

Which peerless 8s are u wanting? Sls? If so, maybe up size to L4s run them down to the Peerless xover point and nix the 6.5s

Why u say that ??? Just a 4 way with an added L3 band passed. Cause the L3 will play a little lower and help rise the sound stage. Well thats my thinking anyways....
Feel free to explain why this wouldn't work...And I would run my subs off my head unit sub out by the way...

The 6.5 is not needed. Let the 8 play the midbass, 4 on midrange and tweeters for highs. And yes this will raise the stage and keep u from splitting the mfrequencies between too many drivers like a 3 way is good for

Now I have personal not done this, yet I have read where people have ran two sets of tweeters would this not be the same yet I'd be able to run the L3's at lower frequencies...

I agree 100% with the guys who suggested getting rid of the 6.5" drivers and using a 4-way setup consisting of: tweeter, 4" mid, 8" midbass, subs

The MS-8 only has 8 outputs, so NO, it will NOT properly run a 5-way setup which requires 10 outputs.

You'd have too many drivers that would work against each other competing for the same frequencies. With proper time alignment and placement you can "rise the sound stage". The kits you're talking about are specifically made to work with imaging crossovers, you would just be mishmoshing stuff together and hoping the MS-8 can process you to death to get it to where you want it.

Basically, everyone is telling you the same thing. Drop the 6.5 and just run the 8" Midbass, 4" Midrange, Tweeter, and your subs. The 6.5 will cause more hurt than help.

I had a terrible time running the ms8 with mids/tweets in the pillars and 8s in the doors. I really think the ms8 was specifically made for factory locations and center channel.
