    I need some help I believe...

    I am looking to buy some components, but want to piece something together. Was told to run some SEAS 1 inch dome tweets (aluminum) and I want to run the mach5 MLI6.5 or whatever as the mid. What do I use for a crossover? I want this stuff in the door of my truck, and want loud and clean.

    I don't have a **** load of money (hence the piecing together of components). Can anyone link me to what I will need? I don't have a clue what im doing, but don't want a shop doing the work. I am good enough with building ****, just need some product/tuning help. I don't have to go active I guess, right? I don't want to .

    Anyone willing to help me out, and get me going in the right direction?

    Also, given the seas/mach5 setup, what amp would be worth getting to run them? I don't mind "name brand" stuff for this build, if the amp is good. I hate buying amps

    you can look into building a crossover yourself. I have no experience here, but I believe NGsm does. I recall seeing a home audio build he did when he made his own crossovers iirc.

    I know crossover parts and design software can be purchased from partsexpress.com

    These are the tweeters you want:

    And yes, you will be going active. You need to be able to tune the crossover to whatever speakers you choose. You can use something like this for your crossover:

    http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=14849

    You'll need a 4 channel amp. Maybe a Profile AP1040 for $90, maybe something better.

    As for which mids to use, I don't know. The people on diymobileaudio.com would know.

    Hope this helps!
