    How's this for an active mid/tweeter combo?

    I'm going active eventually and was checking out some different mids. What do you guys think about this combo? I'm set on the tweeter so don't bother recommending anything different .

    BTW the Chargers are getting a new a-hole right now



    Vifa Classic D75MX41 3” dome midrange

    It's pretty flat from 900 Hz to 7 kHz.

    I am thinking about getting a 7" woofer for the low end. I already have a 12" sub.

    This is the tweet I'm getting.


    Vifa XT25SC50-04 Ring Radiator tweeter

    Good midrange? Any other suggestions?

    The reason I'm going with a 3-way setup is because of space issues. I want my mids and tweets in kickpanels and in an Integra anything over 3-4 inches would just take up too much space. So I'm putting the woofers in the doors and the mids/highs in kicks.

    It doesn't look like that mid is enclosed and its 8 ohm! Good for a passive but not active IMO. I suggest looking for other mids. The DLS IR 3" and Hybrid Legatia 3" are both excellent. Also Alpine uses a car audio friendy version of that tweeter in some of their Type X comp sets.

    That IS the car friendly version

    Can you give me a good source for those speakers?

    I know it's 8 ohms, but if it sounds good I don't care.

    Around 100 watts RMS, maybe more.

    Any other 3-4 inch midrange suggestions?

    Very nice sounding tweeter. This is the same tweeter used in the polk srs. One thing to consider though, its not very loud. While it does sound very good, its not loud enough for many.

    By car friendly I meant that they are traditional car audio tweeters, easy to mount, have a grill, etc...

    Are you limited to Vifa? Have you looked at Dayton or Peerless?
