    Comps to run active off Zed Draconia II?

    Hi I'm currently running MB quart PVL216 off the front channels but I was thinking I want to go active. What would you recommend with the amp (rated at 150x4 @ 4 ohms) I have?? Going into an 05 TL.

    Haven't really set a budget yet. Just trying to get some different ideas for now.

    Re: Comps to run active off Zed Draconia II?

    You'll have a huge advantage of going active in matching your drivers piece by piece. I've been doing similar research and been back and forth on a few ideas. What I think I've decided on are these paired together:

    Tweeters:
    Vifa XT25BG60-04 1" Shielded Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter 264-1012

    Woofers:
    DIYCable.com : Intro Home Exodus Anarchy
    -OR-
    Dayton Audio RSS210HO-4 8" Reference HO Subwoofer 4 Ohm 295-458

    There's tons of shootouts on DIYMA for reference and that's pretty much what I'm using. Good luck hunting, but the choices I mentioned above should go great together on that amp.

    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
    Amps: Boston Acoustics GT-2125, Zed Minotaur III (x2)
    Sub: 10" SSA ICON, IA Death Penalty 18" (coming soon)

    Re: Comps to run active off Zed Draconia II?

    Ty for the suggestions so far.. Please keep them coming... I do have a question tho, most comps are 4 ohms per side (tweet + mid), what is the load my amp is going to see per channel going active? 8ohms?

    Without a DMM, it's hard to know. If you start going down the hunt for raw drivers (which is what I'm suggesting), it'll be listed clearly before you purchase. All of my links are for 4-ohm drivers.

    Re: Comps to run active off Zed Draconia II?

    Vifa tweets are very nice, but might want to consider the small format version as ring radiators need to be mounted VERY close to on-axis.

    and x2 on getting raw drivers. Do some reading on diyma, lots of proven combos for any price range. PE and Madisound should have whatever you decide on...
