Hey well i'm hoping someone can answer my question about getting a decent soundstage and imaging i'v tried searching and searching but nobody i can find has had this setup and asked the question i'm basically looking for idea's and thoughts so here it goes
i'm looking to put a stereo in a big truck a peterbilt its a company vehicle so i can't modify door panels and such now the front speakers are mounted bout a foot above my head when i'm sitting they also face each other no angles just straight so there isn't any stage the sound just comes from above doesn't fill the truck or anything just stays up there.
So the idea's i'v come up with.....if i mount the tweeters in the top corners of the window angled down to the floor between the seats and if i made some speaker brackets for the mids/midbass that had say a 45-70 degree angle aimed about the same spot as the tweeters do you guys think that would have almost the same effect as having everything in the kick panels or doors aimed at the dome light?
The second idea i had was to have everything like the first idea and add a bit1 or a 3sixty.3(when it comes out) and setup a center channel using some coaxles make a custom box for in front of the gear shift and have that aimed up about 45 degrees and see if that would pull the sound down and fill the truck with sound?
Third and last idea pick up some 4" mids make custom pods for mids and tweet together put them in the window either top corners or the bottom by the dash and build some boxes for the midbass and put them behind each of the seats??
I know sound is all up to the listener this is my first big install want to do it right the first time i'm just looking for ideas on what you guys think would sound best to give me a place to start my trial and error if anybody wants pictures of the truck to get ideas just let me know thanks
