    Icon32 Stereo Integrity TM65 MkII drivers...

    As I'm slowly building my SQ system, I'm pondering these Stereo Integrity TM65 MkII 6.5" drivers for my doors, and possibly upgrading my Memphis 2.75" dash drivers to the Stereo Integrity 1" XBL^2 tweeters.

    So tell me about these mid-bass drivers. Anyone use them or heard them?

    Years back, I had their 12" sub and that thing sounded excellent powered by a JL Slash amp in a small sealed enclosure.

    Looking forward to your thoughts! Many thanks in advance!

    Well, so much for that...

    Also, I just bought a brand new pair along with the matching tweeters today from a member on DIYMA.

    You will enjoy them. If you waited a few days a DIYMA member is running them up against the $700 Audiofrog GB60s. Waiting to see how that goes.

    I know the SI sub I had was excellent. Just found some old pics of it. It was the MAG D2. As for the Arc amp, I have read nothing but good things about it, likewise about the SI mids and tweeters I'm getting.

    It'll be cool to see how the two compare. I won't be too concerned considering SI's reputation and the fact that there will always be "better" out there somewhere. Either way, these will be a whole lot better than anything I had originally planned on.

    They are both extremely good drivers. You wont be disappointed

    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    That's what everyone keeps telling me. I figured if I'm going to do a system again, I better go ahead and do it right. And I take my music serious, so it only makes sense to get proper gear.

    The speakers, amp and speaker spacers will be here this coming week. I'll install the speakers, but I'm having the amp installed at a shop over in Clearwater. I just don't have the time these days to take on such a task as installing an amp. Plus my lower back is usually angry the next few days after such things. LOL

    Interested as well. Actually...if you're in central florida I wouldn't mind getting a listen to them if you ever have a spare moment. Tempted to pick this up for my Jetta.

    Be super careful with the surrounds where its glued to the basket. Ive had issues with Si producta in that department. I believe they require nylon washers to avoid that issue.

    That's why you're supposed to use the screws that they supply with the drivers.

    Not in the case of the mk1s.

    That's why Nick drew a hard line about using the supplied screws or voiding your warranty with the mkIIs. It sort of sucks, but it is what it is though.

    Ah... I guess Nick got some complaints about the Mk I's with that. Probably why he now included the hardware with the drivers.

    Many moons ago, I had built a new enclosure for my set of three JL 10W6's. I was rushing to get them installed, so used drywall screws to mount them in the first enclosure. I didn't think anything of it until I had built the new enclosure and went to remove the subs from the old enclosure. Some of the screw heads got wedged under that thick paper gasket, and when I unscrewed them, it peeled that gasket right off of the basket along with a good part of the surround on two of them.

    Long story short, me being in a hurry ended up waiting over a week to install them in the new enclosure because I had to wait for the surround glue to arrive from Parts-Express. I never made that mistake again.

    Both of my mk1 fell apart from that issue. No warning. Nothing. Just, mk2s have the recomme dation. Honestly pretty pissed. Whatever. They worked while they worked
