I really want to redo my sound system, especially my front stage. My front stage currently consists of RE RE comps with the mids glassed into the kick panels and the tweeters in the stock pods in the a pillar. I am beginning to become unhappy with this setup and want to do something different, but I have a lot of requirements for my new install and need help on figuring out a setup that will work.
I do not want to make kick panels again as it has been a huge hassle driving a manual car with very little room to spare anyways. I want to reuse the stock locations for the midrange or midbass driver which is located in the kick panel with no tilt so it fires at the occupants' feet and will hold a 5.25 driver.
My options are:
1. 2 way passive set that will sound good enough in my stock locations (Rainbow? CDT ES, HD? Diamond Audio Hex?)
2. 3 way setup with a 5.25 midrange driver in the kick panel, soft dome midrange installed in the top left corner of the door panel, and tweeter in the stock a pillar corner pod (morel seems to be the only one i can find here...)
3. 2 way active setup in the stock locations
What would be the best option for sound quality and any speaker recommendations for it? I listen to rap/hip hop almost exclusively and cost really isn't an issue. If I have to throw down on a set of Morel Elate 5 3W's I will. I'm just looking for cost effectiveness. I don't want to spend a lot of money on a set of speakers that will end up sounding no better than another much cheaper set would have sounded in my particular install.
Right now I am leaning towards Dynaudio System 222's or the CDT HD-52's.
