    ID Horns or BA 6.53

    I currently have a NIB set of Boston Acoustic 6.53 three-way set-up sitting in the garage along with a Digital Designs S4 staggered output amp. I am contemplating going to an active 2-way with some ID Horns either Ultras or CD2's with either a couple of 8's or two pairs of oem 6.5's. I've always run BA pros 6.5's and got lucky and found the 6.53's cheap. Never done either before --- 3-way or active 2-way. Waiting on new car for install so I am in no rush. Either way needs to keep up with a pair of DD9510's with 4kw or so. Any suggestions?? Please discuss.........

    either of those horns will have no problem keeping up with your subs. i've never heard boston before but they've always been a good line. i guess it's more up to the type of car and how much work your willing to do. i myself run a set of the ultra full bodies.

    Re: ID Horns or BA 6.53

    First of all thanks for the responses......secondly......what type of equalization are you using with your horns. What little research I have done leads me to believe that alot of tuning may be required. Is there any truth to this???? What is the best suggestion for this application??

    Re: ID Horns or BA 6.53

    Id run less way less than 100x2 on the horns...a clean 50x2 is probably too much

    50wrms is still too much even if you have 4kw on the subs, 50wrms will rip your face off on horns.

    I ran a set of $1.47 PE horns and got them to sound pretty **** good with some minor EQ work. They only got a little harsh when played VERY loud. I think you'll be fine with a nice set of ID horns...

    At some point, swap out those piezos for compression drivers. It will put a smile on your face.
