    Time to run active!

    Been doing a lot of research, and been looking for a decent mid and tweet that wont break the bank, i was going with the AA Carbon Mids, but the price is a little high. My doors are completely deaden, and plan on sealing all the holes, mlstrass is going to help me mount these and set it up properly. I was thinking about this combo:

    Mid:

    Tweeter:

    Re: Time to run active!

    I don't have any experience with those particular tweeters, but I would spend a little more on a decent large-format tweeter (if you have the room).

    It'll give you a lot more flexibility with your crossover point and they typically are able to handle more power in a more controlled, less "harsh" manner.

    Re: Time to run active!

    I was planning on getting a Nine.4, and thats 65x4 @ 4ohms, ill just adjust the gain moderately. But right now i am on PE looking at other tweeters, space is limited, but have some wiggle room! I want to place the tweeter in the hole i already made when i had my DLS comps. Btw here is my door:

    Also my headunit is a real powerhouse as well, one of JVC finest headunits ever made. Might connect my stock sub just for a little extra umph.

    Total for the mid and tweet shipped is $121 from PE, so yup

    That Vifa mid looks good, would possibly try a 1" dome.

    Also, check out www.zaphaudio.com he has tested a lot of drivers and has some great info on them.

    Re: Time to run active!

    I bought a pair of these last week.......

    Alpine SPX-17MB PAIR(NEW)




    • Power Handling:
      • 75 watts RMS
      • 300 watts Peak
    • Frequency Response: 30 Hz - 4 kHz
    • Sensitivity: 86 dB
    • 4 Ohm Impedance
    Price:US $50.00

    Shipping:$9.50

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Alpine-SPX-17MB-...item3ef9fc60cd

    They were made by Vifa, based on their XT line if I remember correctly.

    It says he only has two pairs left.

    They get delivered later today or tomorrow, dont have them yet.

    I like those Vifa's at PE as well, those are identical to the 6.5's Soundstream used to use in their $500 Exact comps in the late 90's (except SS made Vifa paint the frames blue).

    From what I understand those were very highly rated in the late 90's.
