    Small Driver for Center Channel

    I am trying to put together my system to accomidate the listening in 5.1. However my center channel is my current hurdle. I have an amp 50 watt for the center and the processor but now I need a driver. The max size for this particular situation is 3". Many of the major manufacturers offer premade center channels but they all look like afterthoughts. Since my system is "stealth" I would like the center channel to be the same. I will be putting the driver in the dash firing towards the back of the vehicle(in the cubby in the picture below).

    Any ideas on good (not expensive) drivers that may fit this requirement? I could do a sealed box but it would be dificult. Not impossible...

    That is a nice piece for sure. I even thought about getting rid of the double din and going with a flip up. I had one before and they interfere with the shifter so I ended up leaving itin the out or in position. Honestly I think they look "unfinished" when the screen is out though.
