    This thread contains Seas Lotus *pics*

    Finally had a nice day (50 degrees baby) and the chance to properly install my Seas Lotus Performance mids and throw another layer of mat down.

    I have no idea what the folks at Seas were smokin when they designed the mid. It's a nice cast basket that is probably twice the weight as any other mid I've used, but the mounting holes don't exactly make for a snappy install. Maybe they were able to create more cone area that way though??



    The door has been sealed and has one layer of eDead (crap!) two coats of Spectrum Sludge and one layer of Dynamat Extreme. I didn't take a pic of the door panel but it has the same treatment.


    I've had the Reference fabric tweets in for a few weeks. A little on the beefy side, but sold as a rock!! Probably the nicest tweeter I've heard at high volumes....the louder it gets the better. My only complaint is that they are not as detailed as I would have expected, but maybe I'm just used to hard domes that tear my tympanic membranes out!!

    They are in their temporary homes for now. Maybe someday I'll throw them in the A pillars if I have room. They are held up from the back by plumbers strapping. I put the foam under them to keep them from turning into crazy bobble tweets





    Here's a pic of the passenger's side. If I am bold enough, I may go 3-way up front and put the midranges in some kicks on the floor there. I'll see how far this little venture takes me for now.

    Yep, PW165's to be exact.

    I have two layers of edead on the door skins followed by one layer of OverKill and then closed cell foam (egg crate shaped waterproof matress pad) directly behind the driver.

    Thanks fellas

    Well I am constantly fiddling with the tweets - aiming them all around the cabin really. One issue is with the big buldge in my dash on top of the gauge cluster. That is the only place I sense reflection. Nice thing about these tweets IME is that you can pretty much point them at your head and they won't wear you out.

    I still have to go through the proper tuning steps...level matching, phase shifts, T/A, etc. Plug and play with some T/A and elbo grease has yielded good results. But, oh no, I must have audio perfection...right!!!
