    Thanks!!! Well, I had the two channels left open on the HU, and I figured, why the heck not? I just don't know if this will mess up the imaging!

    other than the 3.5's everything looks good-so you are bandpassing the extremis?

    Re: Please evaluate/critique my setup...PICS!

    adding speakers dosnt always help. and upgrading the profile amp wont nessicarily make it any better. so try it with and without the 3.5's

    see how it sounds first. dont go wasting money on extra stuff.

    otherwise. cool little setup. SQ is a happy thing. let us know how you like it.

    Yes, I am going to have to. Everyone seems to be against the 3.5s...price aside, do you think this would be detrimental to the imaging?

    Very bad for imaging to have it coming from the center of the vehicle.

    Nice woofer

    Extremely.....not to mention it will cause huge cancellation and phasing issues.

    Thanks!!! heh-heh

    Yeah, seems like I will not be running the 3.5s. It was wortha try, though...

    Now, would it be possible to squeeze more juice out of the HU amp if I ran the (+) of the passenger 165 SL to the (+) front passenger speaker lead and the (-) to the (-) of the passenger side rear speaker lead? (Repeat same scheme for driver side)

    Re: Please evaluate/critique my setup...PICS!

    theres no way to squeeze anything from a HU amp.

    you got 22w (distorted at max) to work with. just use a cheap amp if you can.
