    Icon10 It will be loud, but will it sound good?

    I am thinking about redoing my mids and highs with a total of 8 Selenium 6W4P 6" Woofers 2 in the front doors, 2 in some kick panels, 2 in the middle section and 2 in the rear. Also thinking about a total of 8 Selenium St200 supertweeters, 3 on each side of my front and 2 in the rear. I will be running them off a Audio System Twister F4-600 at 2ohm with the specs below.

    4 x 145W RMS @ 4 Ohm
    4 x 230W RMS @ 2 Ohm
    2 x 460W RMS @ 4 Ohm Bridged Mono

    Its not like I expect it to sound like some morel or higher end cdt or anything like that. I just want the words to be clear and the midbass to be good, but don't expect it to be like some rsd's or anything like that.

    in theory you won't have to push them very hard with so many drivers, so that could help with distortion, but I'm "assuming" you want to be heard from blocks away and will have them set on kill...

    I think florida does have a minimum of 8 supertweeters per door, you may want to look it up.

    Thats what I'd think...set them conservatively, and the added cone area with less power will sound better

    Re: It will be loud, but will it sound good?

    i think you need at least one set of super tweeters per 6 to get it really loud and clear.....so maybe eight 6's and 16 super tweeters...that bish will scream...you can always use an aftermarket eq to clean up the sound if needed.....




    Current 2010 Louisiana USACi State Records :

    Trunk 0-1000.................. 151.3
    StreetBeat 2................... 145.6
    Stock 1801-up.................153.8
    SuperStock 1801-up..........154.2
    Top three in 11 out of 26 power classes and Louisiana USACi Points Leader at 465

    Re: It will be loud, but will it sound good?

    With that many drivers spread throughout the entire vehicle then you are going to have sound coming from different parts of the car at different distances away from the passenger(s). Not the best combination for true SQ. I agree to buy less and higher quality.
