Hey guys, I'm trying to do my first 3-way setup, and decided to go DIY with these dayton's as it seems many others have done..With some of the things I'll be selling soon I should be left over with $1000 or so give or take a little. The setup will be in my Jeep Cherokee for now...I was thinking of these as a starting point -- I noticed the tweets and mids were out of stock till like mid Feb but that's fine I'm just starting to figure things out.

I just have a couple questions about this...
1. If properly setup (I'm planning on putting the midbasses in my stock location in the doors, mids higher in the door and tweets in the a-pillar, thoughts?) will I be impressed by these?
2. Is there a big difference between the 7 and 8" mids?
3. Should I hook the tweets to the front channel, mids to the rear, and midbasses/subs to the sub channel using splitters..then use the 3-way xover on the head unit for the speakers and lpf on the amp for the sub?
I have 3 amps right now, the 1200.1 for my mag, 200.2 for my HD-62's, and a 4150XXK that is unused would the mids and tweets be alright running off the 4150, and midbassess off the 200.2 with the gains set very low? I figure if I can use the amps I have right now, the speakers would take up around $300, wires around $50 and that leaves me $650 for a new head unit, I'm lookin at an 880prs or cd7000, both of which would keep me under my budget.
Any feedback at all would be appreciated
edit -- sell 200.2 and pick up a 2100xxk for the mids to match the 4150? that'd be *** when i switch over to my rsx.
