    B> High Quality 6.5 speakers w/ tweeters

    I need 2 sets of very nice SQ 6.5 component speakers to put in my car. They will be ran off a sundown SAX 100.4. So I'm guessing that I'll want speakers/tweeters that are around 100rms a piece..I need crossovers with the sets since I plan on only running them off one amp. My budget is a little low...let's say around $400.

    Yeah, I seen them, but those mids...they don't look like they hit the lows...just because of the surrounds.

    6.5" mids are not made to "hit the lows". If you need a lot of midbass up front you should be using a dedicated midbass driver along with a small midrange speaker, as in a 3-way front stage. Also, your installation makes a big difference in how well the speakers will sound on the low end.

    If you really want good mid bass up front, you'd be better served spending some of your budget on sealing/deadening your doors. That's how you get good mid bass.

    You don't always need a dedicated midbass speaker though. It's always nice if you have the room or want to make a 3way setup, otherwise looking for the right mid will do just fine. I can vouch for that myself, though I did spend a decent amount of money on my mids. The JBL set you have does have very good reviews though.

    Yeah, I suppose it depends too on how much output one really needs. Plus a 3-way is more difficult to set up and tune. I personally wouldn't run a mid-level 2-way component set down to 60 Hz as I use an 80 Hz HPF at 24 dB/octave. I let the subwoofer take that edge off the mids so they aren't worked so hard.

    Re: B> High Quality 6.5 speakers w/ tweeters

    the sax 100.4 is active capable amp so if your looking to do a 2 way steup you dont need x-overs. try some raw drivers. btw if you do a search on diyma there is a thread that converts the sb drivers to the new arc audio black series . so basicly you can get the sb version for hundreds less if you dont mind not having an arc label that is lol . the tweets i recomend from word of mouth but there is a direct conversion to the sb if u want to duplicate the arc black series set

    If you do sound deaden the doors it will help with the midbass, but only to an extent.
