Hi everyone. First time post here.
Long story short, I was really into CA back in the day. Got out of it for about a decade and now I'm back into it.
So, I'm thinking of purchasing a set of the Bravox CS603CF to run as front stage and a pair of the CX60CF to run in the back doors of my Mazda 6 wagon. I plan to run them passive with the midbass of the 603 set in the stock location, the tweeter in the stock a-pillar location. If possible, I plan to make some type of bridge to mount the midrange over - or possibly next to - the midbass depending on how much room I have. If none of that works then I guess I will just have to drill a hole in my door panel, but I'm hoping to avoid that.
Budgets being what they are, I plan to run all 4 channels with a MB Quart Q4.150. I know that MB isn't what they once were, but this amps specs at 150w rms @4 ohms at .05% THD. Whether it will really do this or not, well, who knows for sure.
Anyway, some of you may questions why the 3 way set up. Well, first the price from SSA is amazing. Second, I prefer 3 way setups because it frees the midbass to do just that. Midbass. It's not trying to do a midrange driver's job. The sub duties will be taken care of by a pair of Fosgate P3-12 drivers run from an old school autotek 333 monster. I also prefer to run the rear door drivers from the same manufacturer of the front drivers to maintain tonal balance and timbre. I find that all of the systems I've built in the old days sound smoother if I do that versus mixing and matching front and rear stage drivers.
I am going to run the front stage passive as I don't have the room or budget to run them active. Hence the budget minded MB amp. Besides, it's a lot easier to upgrade an amp in the future than speakers!
The source will be a Kenwood dnx9980HD head unit.
So, any opinions on this setup?
