    Re: How to do a pro audio setup in car.

    Alright here's my plan for the ultimate budget loud:
    Amp:Amazon.com: MB Quart OA800.4 800-Watt 4-Channel Onyx Series Car Audio Amplifier: Car Electronics
    4 Mids: Amazon.com: PYLE-PRO PPA6 - 400 Watt Professional Premium PA 6'' Woofer: Musical Instruments
    4 tweeters: Amazon.com: Goldwood GT-302/S 1/2" Mylar Dome Tweeter Shielded: Car Electronics

    Im going to try running the mids and tweets for each side on their own channel but i have a feeling it will give the mids not enough power and tweets way to much so i may bridge it to the mids and run the tweets of hu power just depends how they sound on different power levels ill have to try a few different setups.

    A bunch of really cheap mids, horns, and/or super tweeters. Generally sounds screechy or beamy.

    Weird I don't know why it posted that same post twice. Unless I'm seeing things. I've been on this website for a while yes. I was on and off most recently off for like 3-4 years barely getting back into it. The only thing I read about is sq/l/spl stuff. Sarcasm is too hard to detect online

    Re: How to do a pro audio setup in car.

    I have run pa speakers in my car, and prefer to run better sounding drivers.
    There are some pa drivers that sound good.
    I used B&C 6.5" mids and they sound really good, but the cost is high.
    I have also used Beta 8s in my doors and they sound decent for pa driver and are way cheaper.
    I bought some pyle drivers and ended up giving them to a friend as they were really nasal and cheap sounding (to me).
    Everyone has different ears and standards, and this is just my experience.
    I now run Usher 7"ers in my doors and put lots of power to them and they make me happy after lots of sound deadening.

    I hope you find what you want for your needs.

    That's not completley true, yes some of the cheap stuff probably does but I use the fosgate pro tweets and they sound awesome, before I got them my buddy was trying to talk me out of them, then he heard and was surprised how good they sound. Buy good stuff, setup right, it works. Don't get me wrong I won't be winning any sq comps with it but it's loud and clear.

    pa is one of those things you either love or hate if you got a crazy sub stage and dont have enough money for proper mids and highs that can keep up just throw in some cheap pa mids and tweets and your good to go

    I wouldn't do those tweeters. Get a pair of AQ supertweeters at the minimum. Those tweets will NOT keep up at all with those mids.

    Do NOT overpower the mids or they will sound like ***. Make sure you have them bandpassed. Playing too low will limit power handling and sound bad, playing too high they will sound muddy/distorted.

    GL and let us know how it turns out...

    I hope you're kidding or only referring to the crap set ups you've personally seen/heard. Go to USSpeakers and check out some of the prices on decent/good stuff. I wouldn't call $200-300 for a 6.5" mid cheap, especially if you have 4 per door...

    Implying that 999 out of a thousand "pa setups" isn't exactly what I described, or that what I described isn't precisely what OP is doing?

    I'd just do 2 tweets and 4 mids

    His budget stuff can sound just fine if set up properly. I've messed with $1 PE horns before, made them sound surprisingly good.

    And NO not 999 out of 1000 since I have 3 diff PA set ups that all sound very good and have built several more for others on my team. Maybe 990 out of 1000 then
