I have heard of the Crescendo pwx, the Sundown Neos, and seleniums. Just looking to put two 8s on each door panel and looking for some *** for my ears. If you know of a nice set a tweeters to run with these guys, say it cause i am in need of tweeeter ideas as well

The best thing you can do is seal/deaden the car and the doors first. A really high end set of speakers will not sound there best in a leaky door.

Parts Express: the #1 source for audio, video & speaker building components (http://www.parts-express.com)
Order some raw drivers. It is much cheaper and the selection and the choice is MUCH BETTER.

You alluded to PA drivers. Do you want the best or the loudest?

I have the tweets now and ordering mids soon. I have not heard them personally but have talked to several people and they had nothing but good things to say about them.

2 dayton RS 225 8" midbass
2 dayton RS100 4" fullrange
and I already owned a pair of Morel MDT 29 tweets that I got from parts express.

Keep hope told me to put my money towards deadening my doors and sealing them.

Great setup. I almost went with that too. There was a set on DIYMA for sale.

OP anything you pick pro audio will sound like crap. Its meant to get loud as balls, but not sound good doing it.

I Pm'd the guy about them. But he sold them already.
I am looking forward to getting to hear it.
I have never ran components, I have never ran active or off of a mids/high amp.
and I have never had my doors deadened and stuffed with foam.

Should be a HUGE difference.

Well do you have any suggestions what to run then ? I would like lots of midbass so atleast a couple drivers per door. I can fiberglass so the
panels should look decent.. i hope haha

Make sure the mid basses are set solid. Some have some muscle behind them. I had to weld in cross braces for mine, they tried to tear the door apart

I've installed the nendo's, AQ's, seleniums, ect....so I have experience with all of them.

What do you mean by midbass? Do you want something that plays down very low or are you looking to get VERY loud and keep up with a loud substage?

Out of what you mentioned the PWX's have the most midbass punch. The AQ's have decent midbass and get quite loud. The seleniums have solid punch and get the loudest out of all of them.

Then why do they use PA stuff at concerts, small venues, ect...?

I hear this crap all the time. If it truly sounded "that" bad then it would NOT be used anywhere.

Dayton combo is proven, but probably not what the OP is looking for.

Where do you think the term "PA" or "pro audio" came from? I agree that it doesn't make sense to make the blanket statement that PA speakers for the car won't sound good. They're starting to get used very successfully in sound quality competition, or so I've been seeing online.

I am considering doing this right here. Looks like it would sound great. I am just worried if i get a tweeter without a grill it's going to get beat up

Midbass response is determined by the install more than anything else. As long as response goes down to 50Hz.

I haven't put it in yet. But it was suggested to me by the guy above.
Except the tweeters. I already own them for over a year.
Find some tweeters on parts express. Just remember. Everything is sold individually.

I have the aq 6.5's and I love them. Theyre great for the price, and they get fvcking loud too. I had two of mine hooked up to my power bass 100.4 just to see how they sounded and I was very impressed. Right now Im doing my door panels for two in each door plus aq's super tweets in each door was well.


Have you heard them in person ?
