Ok guys...Ive never really been into SQ, so Im not too familiar with midbass, components, etc. I currently have 6x9" up front, and 6.5" in the rear. Now, does a midbass driver replace the front speakers? Or are they an add on? Is a component set a tweeter plus a midbass driver? or does it contain a full range speaker? Im looking to upgrade my speakers and gain some sq, but need to know what Im doing first:)
I currently have clif designs speakers in my a-pillar. Would it be best to get some clif designs midbass drivers...or start over with a whole new set?

You need components to replace fronts, not just midbass. Comps are midbass + tweeter ;)

Ok...so I would need to ditch all of my front speakers, and get a component set?

correct

you can get a 2 way component set (midbass and tweeter)
or you can get a 3 way set (midbass, midrange, and tweeter)

Do most people go with the 2 ways or the 3 ways? I cant fit both the midrange and the midbass in the door....so could I run the midrange in the door, midbass in some kicks, and tweeters in the a pillar?
Or should I just go with a 2 way?

depends on how much $$ you are willing to spend and how much time you are willing to invest.

You could. But a better option would be midrange and tweet in kicks and midbass in door.


2-way vs 3-way is up to you. Each have their benefits and disadvantages.

Im going to have to run the tweeters in the a-pillars, because Ive already mounted them in the pillars. I dont want to take them out and have holes in them.
Will it sound bad with the tweeters in the pillars, midrange in some kicks, and midbass in the doors?

we cant tell you that, you have to do it your self.
In most cases it sounds fine

Depends on some stuff. But you will most likely want to cross the tweets over pretty high.....like 6-7khz (which means you would need a midrange that can go that high).

Sounds good..thanks for the input. Now how about a little more?:)

What would you recommend speaker wise for around $2-300?
