    Lets say you have $1k for front speakers...

    and the ability to fit any driver size you want in your door.....

    What components would you go with?

    EDIT: Active works as well, but only doing 2 way active fronts

    If I had a limo, I would have a nicer sound system up front than in back.

    With 1k, you go active. Why suffer the consequences of passive filter if you don't have to?

    Either Scanspeak Deluxe kit or the BG Neo10 mids (200 each), Neo3 tweets (100 each), and Dayton RS 8" midbasses (50 each). Run 'em active.

    ---------- Post added at 05:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:07 PM ----------

    Hell, if you can fit the 10" Dayton mids, go with those.

    Because of the way things are looking. The build will be "SQL" oriented. Very SQ oriented up front with a strong sub stage out back thats not necessarily SQ oriented. The catch is that, I will be using a double din HU and I will be running rears.

    I suppose, the only way around both those issues is to go with an external processor. In that case, I'll probably go with the MS8 (as I can't see the ARC PS8 really being worth the coin for what I'll be using it for).

    Granted I go with the MS8, then yes I suppose I could go active. What drivers would you guys recommend at the price point?

    I really like the Scan Illuminator mids as of now. But, I'm still searching.
