    Not embarrassed a bit, don't have a lot of extra cash. Chose not to spend much on rear fill because I can't hear them anyway and the Stinger locking RCA'S are better than the Monster and Focal that I've had and they perform quite well. The reason why I'm faming you is you acted like a douche when someone offered you advice saying they didn't know what they were talking about yet you are siliconing 5 sets of speakers in your car.

    Id like to hear how much your car buzzes, I silicone everything that can vibrate and have full sound dampening.. nice and quiet ride, and no buzzing when im pushing 4k.
    Also silicone is 100% waterproof so its good for a water barrier and air tight seal.
    I am trying to learn, so I don't really like when im being told wrong advice.
    Anyway, he realized he misspoke and its fine, not reason for you to flame me with your nonsense.

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    Why do you feel the need for personal attacks. I couldn't tell you if my car buzzes because it's a 4wd modded diesel truck and just the tires are loud as fvck. And yes silicone is waterproof and if you are using it as a water barrier you've got bigger issues. Also, absolutely nothing on your car is air tight except hopefully your tires. If you ask for advice and you don't like what you get then just let it go, you don't have to attack someone for trying to help. You can say what you want about me, my truck and my system if it makes you feel bigger and that's okay with me. You see tomorrow I'll get up and have coffee with my wife before she goes to work and then I might go out to my shop and clean it up after doing and electrical upgrades last night on my truck. Then I will either work on fiberglassing my door panels, designing tweeter pods for my SEAS neos, rebuilding antique bamboo fly rods or maybe even work on one of the selfbows I've started. I will have a good day no matter what. You should try the same.

    Ok cool, so you will stop bothering me.
    I had to start a new thread because you had to come in here with your antics and shut down our conversation about car audio.
    You complain about personal attacks yet you started them. Maybe someday your wife can buy you some nice speakers.
    Ill throw insults at any idiot coming into a forum I started where we are trying to have intelligent conversation, whom doesn't have anything good to say at all.
    Do me a favor and don't comment on any of my threads, your passive aggressive attitude is not welcome. Keep the bickering at home, bringing that up may show where you issues are coming from.
    Anyone feeding people false info and trying to pass it off as fact, your not welcome either.

    You didn't say one thing that was anything near intelligent. Im sure you can find someone to talk to somewhere else, there are many lonely pathetic people who would like to waste their time talking to you on the internet. Im not one, don't expect a response from me again..

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    OP back on topic to your post, will this be an active setup? I would run a highly efficient 8" mid-bass, a 3" mid-range and a nice silk dome or ring radiator tweeter on axis. The midrange and tweeter on axis in the a-pillar. That is what i would do. do it right the first time, there wont be a second time

    I like my midbass crossed 63hz-1000hz -12db/octave midbass 950-3000hz -18db/octave tweeter 2900hz - 20khz -18db/octave

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    you wont need two tweeters.... buy two nice tweeters, and two nice midRANGES THEN. MIDRANGES FREQUECY RESPONSE CAPABLE OF `70HZ-3000HZ and tweeter about 2000hz-20khz silk dome on axis. look at the vifa tweets and SEAS midranges

Say im wiring a component set that is 4 ohms and crossed at 5k. When I switch the supertweeter on, the impedance the amp sees would drop.

    Would the crossover point of the component set change because of the change of impedance on the line?
    The crossover could blow a cap from the added power going thru it.

    Well I wouldn't hit the switch with power flowing threw it, my main question is..

    If you wired the supertweeter in before the load side of the crossover, would the crossover point of the component set change?

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    First, as already mentioned you want midbass up front. Which kinda makes the 8's in the rear a no-no.

    Second, you can get 8's that will play cleanly up to 2500-3K for a passive 2 way system and have the tweeter pick up from there.

    Here's one: WoofersEtc.com - Esotec MW 172 - Dynaudio 8" Mid-range Speaker

    And check out this thread on DIYMA:

    Re: 8" midrange in the front?

    We're in the process of doing my buddies front stage... He's using Vifa/Tymphany, single 8" in the doors, 8" in both kicks, 4" and 1" tweet in each pillar and a 4" center channel. It'll be running on PPI amps and a JBL MS-8. Should be fuuun!!! I think his sub stage is going to be a pair of ZV4 18"s in a wall, car is an HHR....
