    Need opinions from the SQ bisches.....

    I cant seem to settle on what Im going to do with my front stage. I need some opinions before I start buying more stuff or something.

    Right now Ive got a pair of ID OEM 6.5's sitting in each door. Only one set is hooked up and Im running them active with my tweets. Still waiting to finish the trunk and get the sub in.

    Now, Ive decided to run a 3-way active front stage and try and run my sub amp off of a line-out converter utilizing the crossover on the amp.

    So, originally I was just going to run my front set of ID's as the mid-range, other set as the mid-bass. But, I figured why not just put a set of mid-ranges in place and use a pair of ID's in each door as my mid-bass. Or only use one per door.

    I dunno, I think I might put a set of mid-ranges up front, probably a 5 or 6 inch, then glass in another ring behind the mid and run a pair of mids in each door.



    How it is right now.

    Opinions?

    Re: Need opinions from the SQ bisches.....

    So basically, should I bother running a 'pair' of mids per door, with my mid-range, or just use one per door?

    At this point since I have the mids I think Im going to use them.

    I just need to settle on a set of mid-ranges.

    i would say less is more, however im no expert with sq cases yet(still learning)

    Well Im not focusing strictly on SQ with this, its more SQL. However, at this point it would seem like I have more mid-bass then mid-range.

    Thats something else I was considering, but I dont have room in my pillars at all for something like that.

    Ive already got two sets of 6.5 mids. They will be used for my mid-bass, whether I decide to use both sets or not.

    Im just trying to decide on the size mid-range to use if Im running a set of mid-bass per door. Ive been leaning towards the Dayton RS150 if a 6" would be a good idea or not....

    Re: Need opinions from the SQ bisches.....

    If I was running a single set of mid-bass' I would probably run a 4" mid-range....but if Ive got another set of mids I feel I need to up the mid-range.

    The whole reason for going 3-way with this is to be able to run a dedicated mid-bass with how I have my doors setup.

    2 mids and a tweet work fine in my set up, so give that a try first. Just need a tweet that will drop down to 2.5Kz or so...

    That was my original plan. But since I glassed the mids off axis I cant go that route, I tried cramming in two sets last minute and it didnt work out. Im trying to just avoid redoing anything.
