I have a ford flex all 4 doors have 6x8s in them and I can't really squeeze any more room out of them... I have plenty of depth.... I also have a factory 3'' center ch and I will be making some custom a pillars to house a tweeter and 3'' mid

Looking for good SQL.... I like smooth tweeter and warm mid/midbass with a nice kick. Not harsh or tinny.....id Like to keep it under 800-1000$ for all the speakers sub stage will be later
So IM thinking either doing
in the fronts either a nice 3 way component (midbass in the door mid and tweet on the pillar) or a 2 way coax or component in the door and a 4'' component on the pillar ( I will be building a fiberglass pod behind the door panel to keep the stock look but help with midbass)
2 way component in the rear or a nice coax

I was looking a the ppi 3 way comp... Also a few by hertz, focal, cdt and one of the morel sets.
Opinion or idea welcomed :)

Cdt has a very nice 3 way system. The mx1000 hd system. You can get them with either the md6 Mids there 25 tweets and either a 3" mid or the hd02 mid tweet and a set is cdt hd6ex coaxes for the rear I can put you into these for a bit under your budget Actually a good bit

Thanks, Jim. I had actually already given the OP my recommendations by pm on CACO a few days ago. Looks like he wants more options.

The last 3 way set from ppi I checked out looked very cheap and sounded just as cheap. Hardly any mid bass and the tweets were very harsh

I haven't been touching on this much in my private messages but I will add more of my thoughts because I care. CDT has roughly 200 different products for sale, and many of those are component sets or coaxials. They have the whole range covered from entry level to high end, and the sound difference between the low end and the high end is massive. You don't know what you listened to, yet because you didn't like it and you know they were CDT speakers you're uncertain of what choice to make now. I've suggested a customized set for your needs and desires, and I don't leave a customer hanging if they have problems.

Another option you could consider is the Ground Zero Uranium components, GZUC650SQ. Then you could add a set of Nuclear 3" mids, GZNM80SQ. Those two sets together sound so good. They fall into the lower end of your budget.
You can find the products on Ground Zero Usa - Subwoofer, Amplifier, Subwoofer Amplifier (http://www.GroundZeroUSA.com).
There is also a product review of the Uraniums on DIYMA.com

so what im thinking i wanna do is.... get a bad *** set of coax for the doors or convertible components then another set of 4'' components for the pillars this way i can control the out put from the pillars a little more then if i did a passive set of 3 way components....... only other thing i am thinking is going active for the front stage at least.... OPINIONS?
