    Icon32 2-way or 3-way in the front

    Here's a question: I just bought 2 pairs of 6.5 kappa's and I'm going to be running it off of my jl 300/4 which is pushing 75w RMS per speaker. 1 pair are the 6.5 2-ways, and the other is the 6.5 3-ways. Which pair would you recommend in the front? I have a 91 accord, and the front mounting depth is 2". I'm sure I can modify the interior to make them fit, just wanted someone else's opinion. I have a 12w7 in a sealed box being pushed by a jl 500/1 so base is not an issue. Never used infinitys before, will those kappas sound ok with my 300/4 and the w7?

    Kappa's will sound ok. You want most of your fill in the front so I would go with the three way for proper sound staging.

    I only have 2" in the front of the car, if I were to put the 3-ways in the back, would it sound alot worse orwould it not be that much of a difference?

    You always want the higher frequancies in the front of the car, not in the rear deck. Typically the way to go is run mids and midbass in the rear and run mids, midbass and tweet up front. If you can runthe three way up front do it.
