    I ran these in my vehicle for awhile and sounded GREAT even with the passive crossovers.
    I can only imagine running them active would be even better

    Thank you, Sir. Trying to get some green together for deals I had lined up. Had to drop loot on AC repairs.

    Are you only selling the mids? What about the crossovers and tweeters? Have any pics?

    If you decide to sell these with the crossovers, let me know. I will most likely take them if you do.
