My main question is, why do so many people put so many mids and highs in the doors. Wont that just hurt your ears even more???

Im asking this because I upgraded my front speakers in my car and when im cranking the music to get my subs loud the speakers are too loud and hurt my ears even though the gain on my 4 channel is very low!!!. (Im very used to listening to loud music).

So i was thinking, well maybe if i put 2 mids and maybe 2 highs like adding a 5" mid and maybe another tweeter, will i get better, fuller and clearer sound without needing to be so loud???


I know this is alot but this is a problem ive been facing and I am very confused.

Loud is a relative term.

Adding more won't do anything you want it to. EQ, correctly, and make it sound good to your ears.

I have 2 12" MTX Thunderpro2 500w rms each, but my amp is only pumping about 650w until i upgrade

Most vehicles with doors packed with speakers are doing high 150's or more. Your probably in the low 130's if your subs can't keep up with your front stage. It's not even comparable. If your music hurts to listen to your tweets are harsh and probably being over powered or sent a dirty signal. I'd get amps set with a scope.

ok so i will play with my eq settings, ill probably swap the infinity speakers with some rockford speakers i dont like the sound of my infinitys that much.

So the only reason people put like 5mids and 5 highs in each door is just so that it can play music louder? like more DB?

Thank you!! I always had a feeling there was something wrong with my tweeters since day 1. Im sure of it. Im going to swap them out with something better

Infinitys are know for being harsh. Look for a low fs silk tweeter with a clean signal will be much smoother

turn your subs gain up on your hu to match your inside spks.... or turn down your inside spks on your hu untill it matches nicely with sub.....

What is your equipment?

More speakers generally means louder not better.

Quality sound is a result of the right equipment, ( including a DSP) and the correct tuning, not more equipment.

Seriously? the high 130's, and high 150s. Aren't the high 130's is what jet engine put out?

Totally different, A 150 at 40hz is waaaayyyy different than a 150 and 1k hz or whatever frequency it's different

I understand now, thanks. I'm going to have to measured my db's.
I have helped trim out a few JT 8 jet engines back in the day, and i can tell you those things scream.

More speakers + more power = louder.

as mentioned once your bass is VERY loud it takes multiple mids/tweeters to have a chance at keeping up...

Planes do it super low I think. I live near an airport and generally it isn't too bad, but one time we must have had a HUGE plane take off. I mean everyone in our apt complex went outside and my metal overhang on our apt was literally shaking and did so for a good 20 seconds. It was crazy at first as it was taking off, as we heard it super clearly from in the house and it kinda felt like an earthquake.. The 20 second later point that plane had to be several miles away at the speed those things move and it still had energy left to keep moving that thing.. A big planes that they probably got the 150db at close range is probably at like 8hz or something silly.
