    Re: Boston pro's or ID oem

    I have 2 sets of pro's in my doors (passive) now. I was just thinking of getting the id's and going active with a pioneer860 and planet audio hvt754. fyi this setup is not in the g35. it is in a 2dr tahoe with 4 15" re se's and 2 aq1200d's

    Re: Boston pro's or ID oem

    Try the pros active, cross over at about 3.5k

    The ID mids are good, but require a 2.5k crossover,
    and really want about a 2k. To my ear, higher active
    crossover points on a mid that can keep up sound better.

    The more of the vocal range that you can keep on the mid
    the better to my ears.

    IMO the ID mids would be best in a 3 way setup, but by the time
    you start dropping the money required to do 3-way right, your options
    open up a bit.

    Re: Boston pro's or ID oem

    I will go active then. The pros sound great in my g but my custom panels in the ho sound like shat. I think I went a little on the weak side with the glass. I can't cut the sheet metal to enclose the pros because of the window motor. I am experiencing a lot of 200hz distortion (thats what it sounds like). and i just cannot eq it out. any suggestions?

    Re: Boston pro's or ID oem

    It just sounds like an excessively high 200hz spike. when I decrease 200hz on the eq it "quiets" but will not go away. My guess is a flex in the fiberglass which is the mounting side of the drivers.

    why do you say that? many people run them higher than 2k or 2.5k.
