    So in the end have the ppi bridged for mids
    Buy another 2 channel for tweets
    And have my mono for sub
    All in all having 3 amps on stock electrical.
    Alternator 110 amps.
    I was thinking of getting the same battery under my hood for the rear it's an agm. Idk if this helps with voltage for driving and when the cars off?
    Can I just run tweeters off headunit and bridge ppi for mids?

    No. Just run the ppi 900.4 as a normal 4 channel.tweets need power. Stick with the original idea and dont waste uneccesary money. The bridge thing is in the future if you feel its not adequate loudness.

    Your electrical *****. Definitely get a high output alt in the Future

    Good to know. I was trying to ask how low will they play. I was thinking they might be good at 100hz

    Same with my setup. Everyone thought theres a center and hidden a pillar and dash speakers. Id put the pwx against cdt es 06 anyday and itll absolutely destroy it. Fking makes the cdt look like flea market garbage in terms of sq. Midbass, warmth and detail all miles better.

    Yea. I think you had tge cdts with tge fiberglass cones that had issues.
    The drivers i have have 7mm xmax with a 2 layer 1.5" coil. Inductance is .15mh tgey will literatilly play to 6khz no sweat. They also have a 90db 1w1m rating so they get hella loud off 200..

    Still,at that time period a 70 dollar pair of pro audio mids destroying a 400 dollar pair of mids. Even beat out phd fb pro 6.1s by tiny little bit in sq but is a lot louder and mor durable. Phds fell apart fast.

    They may be classified as pro audio but they are very capable good sounding midbass drivers with a lot of detail, warmth and output. I went through a lot of components and none of the mids can match the pwx lb for lb.

    Of course the speaker is more suited for warmer midrange and midbass I have a tweeter that can play low so there is no gap. However if you have a tweet that needs to be crossed 5khz or above, you might want to get the crescendo UN 6.5 instead which plays up higher. The PWX shines best as a midbass in a 3 way setup or a general mid in a 2 way with a tweeter that can play down to 3.15khz.

    Do the pwx need a ton of work to sound good? The few sets ive heard have been less than impressive.
