2 Focal 10" 27A Sub (250W Rms )

Alpine 9833 Hu
Alpine MRD-M1001 SUB AMP
Alpine MRV-F540 4 CH Speaker amp

also i have the 6.5 " type R comp that i want to install in the middle console to fill the rear . would that be wise???

Hi, welcome to the forum. Looks like you have a good setup there. I would not bother with the 6.5" for the rear fill, there is no need.

that tweet must be killing your head. im surprised your ears arent bleeding. but yes, for the best imaging, put them close. its like being at a concert- but having the guitarist to your left (and his amps\speakers) and the band in front of you.

isnt that just strangly annoying?

its like seperating all the music around. so mount them eaither in the A-pillar, or the kick\door panel.

but good setup so far mang. now get us pictures.

Don't bother....it's not needed

It's a general rule of thumb, but it is by no means a commandment. I believe the general rule is that the tweeter should be no more than half the diameter of the mid away from the mid. But, that doesn't apply to every situation or every setup or every car. It's just something you have to toy with on your own, and find what you think is the best spot and what sounds best to your ears.



Nice setup by the way :thumbupw:

i don't know why people insist on rules like, "no need for rear fill" and tweeters mus be close to driver"

a car setup is completly different from a home setup. i have just in stalled my Foacl componets , 5.25 coaxial in the rear and a 12 sub in my Civic.

after experimenting, sound stage height became more important then any thing, so i faded the sound abit to the front and have the tweeters by the side mirror for a higher sound stage, i cant imagine having to put the in the kick panels.

they sounded like it was coming from the floor

Most anoying!!


trick: know the rules then experiment for urself, at the end of the day, its you in the drivers seat. not me

You can achieve proper stage height and imaging with kick panels. It takes some knowledge and work, however.

Good to see another Edmontonian, btw. I forgot to mention it in the earlier post. With you here we're up to 2...since some other loser that used to live here moved...and so did some other loser before that.
