    Few Seleniums+ a LOT of power...equals surprisingly..WOW.

    To a lot of you guys that are more into sq, obviously the FL "culture" of loud-a$$ PA vocals isn't for you.

    Everyone i've encountered always puts about 20 different sized PA speakers in their truck/impala/donk around here, and then puts like 200w to all of them. and they sound like shit!

    So I took the less is more approach...kind of
    i'm tired of wearing the "I'm louder then you" shirts, and being the only one of my friends I've built setups for not at a 148db+
    That ***** obviously isn't going to work. I love the 8" setups I have in my bimmer, and clean audio- it's just not enough.

    SO, long story short, I'm turning my dd explorer sport trac into one loud Fucker

    First step, did some experimenting with selenium 6's and a pair of ST350 supertweets. Not the first time using pro audio seleniums.... but always impressed with them compared to dayton/eminence/B&C
    Anyone ever put 500w RMS a channel to 2 selenium 6's? LOL


    4 mids, 2 on each channel giving each pair about 4-500w rms, with 1 ST350 selenium tweeter daisy'ed on. STUPID loud for 4 speakers, and VERY clear....and will play consistantly at that volume without smelling.

    Moral of the story......if going with LOUD vocal/mid/high setups, spend 1/2 as much on amount of speakers, and 2x as much on the power to them.

    I've never had lights dimm off of a mid amp until now though, not going to lie. 1000w rms is a lot of power to put on vocals haha. And honestly, going to go with 4 more 6's with an identical amp and tweets...to keep up with the 2 DD 3518's coming soon. Not going to be ready for SBN, but oh well my Bimmer will be there.

    Kind of a rant/FYI.....just excited. Kind of want to take a video of how clear/ far away it is.

    I know what you mean...it's a sound not for everyone. harshness can be toned down with an eq quite a bit....the midbass, well, anything <100hz I agree it's like...a strange not smooth but not distorted sound...I'm a giant fan of clarity. If it's not clear, I don't like it. If it's distorted, I won't listen to it. That why I'm impressed with just a few of these speakers if you really throw ***** tons of power at them how clear they are compared to the other way around.

    The best is the M&M caprice around here on the 24's...I laugh everytime I see it.
