    I can't decide AA or MAch 5

    OK well I plan i putting a 3 way set up in my truck and i can't decide which midbass to use I have both the AA carbon fiber mid and a set of Mach 5 MLI-65

    For midrange i am putting a 4" TangBand in the dash with a Seas 25 something or other tweeter in the A pillar. Here is the Tangband woofer i have http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=264-828

    Now from what i understand
    The AA 6.5 POLY and Mach 5 MLI-65 are billed as High output, High Excursion, Low Distortion, Extended Frequency Response MidWoofers(Midrange/Midbass) drivers. Seems they both will play down to the lower midbass range (60Hz)and up to treble range.

    I have very limited experience with the AA as i did have them in my previous car but they weren't XO over that low. I also have not played with the Mach 5's yet at all.

    one point for the AA is that it will match the look of the Tangband
    as you can see here


    here's a pic of the Mach 5 for reference



    Please give me your opinions

    Tough one, they both seem like good choices. I'd probably stick with the
    AA poly mids and change them out later if I got the itch.

    Re: I can't decide AA or MAch 5

    the other point on the AA's is that they are closer to 7" and the mach 5's are 6.5"
