I'ma run a RE 6.5 comp set (with passives) and a set of XXX 6.5's

XXX midbass , re 6.5 midrange , re tweeter highs.

is this the correct way to do the 3way setup ?
i just don't know how to set them up. was thinking of putting both re 6.5 and XXX 6.5 in the doors custom pods ofcorse, with the tweeter in the sail rails. or the XXX in the doors and re 6.5 in kicks with the tweeter.

i'm confused..

I would not bother with the RE 6.5 unless you really wanted to use it. But the XXX mid is good all the way up to 4k and up. I would just use the XXX mid and the RE tweeter and stick with something simple and sounds good. The XXX mid is perfectly capable as a midrange and coupled with a nice tweeter shoud bring you a nice sounding 2-way setup.

That is all.

Thanks for the link, actually I seen that thread b4 but didn't realize he was asking the same question.

Well I was hoping that with the XXX and the RE's i could cover a more broader range, sence I have both sets already. does this make sence ?

it could sound better...it could sound worse.
its all in how you set it up.
remember, more is not always better;)

How you install and set it up is going to decide how well it performs.
