    I second this. you dont need to do all those speakers in the rear deck

    Thanks, I got a 2 year old son, a daughter on the way and we're preparing to move back down south to Dallas. So at the moment I'm not inclined to get rid of everything and start over. I'll do it eventually though.

    I'll keep the 6X9s in the rear deck and stick 1 6.5 on each door. That still leaves me with some place to put the 3"s. I was thinking about putting them in the front door as well, but I was also considering the middle console. Do you have any experience with that?

    Off topic. My subs' displacement is .23. Now I know that I need to subtract that from the enclosure volume, however does the displacement change when you're using a double panel face? (Using 3/4 MDF)

    Technically, if you have to build into your airspace to do a double baffle then yes, it will affect the volume.

    Yeah because by it being double paneled that's less sub being applied to the internal space of the enclosure.

    why bother with the 3" speakers, seriously? They will add very little to what you already have...

    Yes even the XST's or FT1's. Tweeters play higher freqs, and add that top end sparkle.

    Get some of the Parts Express PA165 $22 mids, play them from 125-4000Hz, you will be MUCH louder then...
