Im not real sure what to look for with a front stage. I'm looking for 2 tweets and 2 6.5s for <$150.
I have 120wrms x 4 @4 ohms to work with and it needs to keep up with a 3krms substage.

Opinions on these here?

Crescendo makes nice mids and tweets on the budget friendly side

You running active? If not, you will want a component set.

yep. that is a fine pairing. how good it sounds depends on what you do to your doors. i recommend fiberglass batt insulation in thin PVC bags (for water proofing) inside the door - as much as you can fit.

What would be a good way to keep the insulation out of the way of the window?

There's non-fiberglass batt insulation here. It's stuff that's used underneath auto carpeting. Very dense fiber. Not expensive for 32' roll. Doubling up on sound deadener would be more expensive.

the fiberglass batt alternatives are also fine. either need to be protected from water. i secure the bags with aluminum foil tape to the outer skin to keep them clear of the window. aluminum foil tape sticks very well to vehicle metal. my build log has details.

seriously, it's probably the best addition to any sound system with door speakers. night and day improvement regardless of speaker quality.

I had also thought of something like this. I could make something that would work. Advantages/Disadvantages to either way.?

Do the baffles considerably increase dB? +3?
