Ok so got some questions. If you didn't know I'm installing a whole new system in my 2002 camaro. Subs are going to be 2 zcons D1s with a soundstream xxx6500. New 300 amp alt comming in and batcap 4000. Running direct from alt to rear then my standard AC delco for starter. Now with a 5300 watt rms subwoofer system I'm going to need some high quality Mids and Highs. My buddy that owns a car audio shop has a*Crescendo 1000c4 that does 175x4 rms. For my front stage I'm going with*Lanzar OPTI6C Optidrive 500-Watt 6.5-Inch Component System running off the 1000c4, for my side panels I'm *thinking*Lanzar OPTI6PM 6.5" Opti Pro 400 Watt Coaxial Speaker. Then for my rear 4" I'm going to put*Crescendo Audio XST2 Supertweeters. pretty sure I need another crossover set but my question is*
One will this just be to insanely loud to deal with?
Two is it even wise to have 6 tweeters total? 2 upfront, 2 in the coaxial, 2 supers in the rear?
Three would I be better off with a midrange in the side panel instead?

Let me know what size crossover would be a good choice and any ideas of a set up

I do I don't want just empty sound so I think a set of mids will do just fine

Ok a couple things. One batcap4000 is not going to support that current hog of an amp your gonna need need more reserve even with a 300 amp alt.
There is no reason to do any back fill at any time.
If your spending that much cash on your substage why would you buy junk lanzar comps.
If you want a smooth and loud front stage that's gonna keep up I would run quality pa mids and some crescendo super tweets on an active setup.

Well it's $200 for the whole mid/ high + amp

What other batcap would I need to top it off? I have to 3000s avaibale to me for 300 each and a 2000 for 175.

Also what would you suggest I do then? I've heard nothing but good reviews from the supertweets

At least one more batt is going to be needed. As an example Ill be running 4 d31's a 300 amp alt and 6 runs if 1/0 for 4k. I see your head unit isn't active capable so that kind of throws the pa setup out the window.

Ok I will work on getting another battcap. Can I mix sizes? Like let's say a 4000 and a 3000?

Back on track with components. So your saying don't instal the Super tweeter in the back? I think it'd go perfectly for a number of reasons the OEM speaker in the rear was 4" do perfect fit, then the shape of my hatch would push the sound forward. I need to find a tweeter pod for my z28 to hold them upfront though

Ah I got it, I'll put the Coaxials up front, ditch the 1" tweeters from the comps, put the mids in my sail panel and then use the crossover to power the super tweets in the back
