Re: pros and cons of component speakers
Well first of all without any time correction or eq controls imaging isn't going to be good no matter what you put in there. Pathlengths need to be minimized to start with and doors aren't the way to go. You usually want your midrange and tweet to be as close as possible but you can get away with putting tweets in the a pillars to raise sound stage but you are still going need to be able to tune. Installation is most important here. What kind of price range are you willing to spend on your component sets?
