    Are multiple door speakers worth it?

    I heard that it is rather pointless as far as SQ goes because they cancel each other out. I have seen this setup done a lot of times but that dont mean its the right thing to do. Just want some opinions about this since I am THINKING about doing this to my rear doors.

    Re: Are multiple door speakers worth it?

    Unless you are needing to overcome 155+ sub stage, no. Even then it's a stretch. I have single doors and kicks (took out the rear doors because of ext cab truck) and they are plenty for my sub stage, anything beyond would just be dumb.

    Rear doors? No. Front doors? OK, if you want separate midbass and midrange drivers.

    Depends upon your goals. I kinda like having 2 15's in each door just for the WOW factor

    Always nice to have loud and clear mids and highs though, component set in each door in my new build, 2 6.5s and 2 tweets on 125w per door

    If it was me, I would use the money being spent on the double mids & use it towards a better component set. I also would not put double speakers in the back.

    Re: Are multiple door speakers worth it?

    I wouldn't run more than a 3 way in the doors. If you just get a good set of comps then you wouldn't have to worry about adding more. My Hertz get plenty loud off the 250rms I'm feeding them. I had to turn the gain way down due to just how loud they were.

    I know there was a fairly in-depth discussion in another thread, but I would like to reiterate that majority of the time conventional hi-fi car audio speakers are going to sound tremendously better than PA.

    I'm running $60/pair RF Punch Coax 6.5s on 75w each. I had to back the stupid things down because they were hurting. They keep up w/ a 155 sub stage just fine.

    My S-10 build is going to be T3 Components on 220w each. Should have no problems getting loud.

    I would suggest bumping up to a 8" midbass driver in each door before I'd go with 2 6.5" drivers ...

    I have 2 15's in each door, but it has nothing to do with an SQ build...
