    Thinking about Going Active

    Hey everyone, I am currently running the system in my sig. It hasnt been in there long but I want to try running an active system. Budget is 200 + cost of a decent crossover.

    I was thinking of running the Dayton 7" mids. What would be a good tweeter to match with these?

    I'd stay away from the Daytons, you'd be MUCH happier with ID OEM's or Premier 720PRS mids.

    You can't go wrong with Blaupunkt's VC100 series 1" silk dome tweeter, especially for the price.

    Oh, and for processing, just get an active headunit...it's much easier that way..I happen to have one for sale.

    I have 100 going to mine...75 would be fine.

    They Daytons are an absolute ***** to tune, and to find the sweet spot, plus they don't play that high. I'd stay away.

    Will the OEMs sound good off of 75W? Will I want to buy a new amp for them in the near future?

    Re: Thinking about Going Active

    Alright, well thanks for the input you have to offer. Ill look into the those OEMs.

    One more thought. this summer we are doing a system in my friends 2002 S-10 Extreme (Extended cab). I was thinking midbass in doors. and then a 3" in dash with tweeters on A-pillar. Will that 3" hurt the image or is that decent placement for it?

    It depends on careful positioning, aiming, and critical listening. I've seen where people have made a poor use of windshield reflection and screwed everything up and I've seen where they've used it very effectively. But to do it right will require more than just picking spots at random, drilling holes, and dropping the speakers in.

    and nobody cares what your sub is.
