    To All Who Helped Me B4.........You Were Right!

    In my last post i asked about amplifier set up and the conversation went to my speakers. I was told by multiple people that having two sets of comps in a reg. cab truck was killing my sq.....they were dead right!

    I pulled out the woofer from the kicks and the tweeter from the door....now i have my woofer in the factory location in the door and my tweeter in the kick panel, and man what a difference! the stage is much more clear now and more tword the center of the truck. i love it! so i just wanted to tell all who helped me before thanks! my system has never sounded better!

    I guess i am gonna have to change my sig now

    i would probably compare them to infinities because of the clarity, a little harsh on the tweets, and not much midbass......although i think its because of my doors....they have supper small magnets i guess to fit into tight spots....i got them in a trade so i figured i would run em till i went for somethin different....

    i am going to wait to see how it sounds after i seal and deaden the doors, if im still not happy with midbass then i will upgrade....

    dont have any real complaints about them though. i think they will sound much better with a new amp and doors done.....

    Also, i know this is the wrong section but does anybody have any suggestions on a new 2 channel? i will probably keep them passive for now, and the vipers are 125w rms....

    Re: To All Who Helped Me B4.........You Were Right!

    If you can fit these, look into Cadence in the outlet store:

    http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductC...idCategory=125

    Buddy just bought and received the 6004. Front channels will be for components and the rears will be bridged to a Dayton Reference HO 12...hard to beat for the dollar...and a 2 year warranty

    If you can, get this one http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductC...&idproduct=382 for headroom

    i have looked at rockford T5002 2 channel (since i have one of their amps for my subs already) but really nothing else....would like something that would put out around 150w rms at 4 ohms....

    ^^^^^the candence looks like and interesting option...and def. in the budget!

    If you're planning on the 720PRS's, have you thought about running them active with a smaller-footprint class d 4 channel?

    The Cadence amps are a great bargain, imo.

    If you want to just stick with a 2 channel, then here are some more suggestions:

    Re: To All Who Helped Me B4.........You Were Right!

    If you can fit the Cadence you simply can't beat the price...its authorized, price is SHIPPED, and two year warranty...Im installing the 6004 for my buddy today on some components...if you want to wait I will give you my impressions...

    so the plan for now it to do the doors to see how that improves the midbass. if i like it i may stick with the vipers for a while as i am a college student and dont want to buy anything unless i have to....if i dont like the midbass still they will come out for some pioneer 720prs....

    to answer your question further, i contacted jacob fuller at sundown and he informed me that the sax 100.4 would allow me to go active with out having to change my HU for now....and i can get a referbished unit for $275 so i am seriously looking into this as well.....
