installing the 8s i got from cmoney along with 2 18s. Contemplating on doing a 3way but for now il going to do a 2way.

 

3 ways means new amps. 2 way means new amps. going to bridge the xenon 200.2 to the mids and get another 200.1 for the tweeters.

 

i'm looking at te cdt ES-03s. the subs are build around a set of DD 9500j motors with some coils and softparts build to meter. so i need some serious front stage..

 

shoot some suggestions and thoughts. im open to any suggestions..

I've heard good things about the ES series...like we're discussing in the other thread, the AF GB25's are specifically designed for use in tiny enclosures intended for use in A-pillar and sail/dash pod installs...How small of an enclosure can the ES mids handle before you start to lose low-end extension? There is an interesting thread on DIYMA about the differences in design and intended use of the GB25's vs the GB4's. Also I find that most '3 inch' mids are really closer to/or larger than 4 inches...this makes physical installation much more difficult. The GB25's are 2.5inch mids and require the smallest of enclosures which really opens up various install possibilities. They also handle power very well, yet don't require a ton of it to sound good either....very well designed.

**** thats steep. i know at one time the ES-03 was pretty highly regarded. id have to hear them. most car audio gear is stupid overpriced. i won't touch hertz until they catch their heads.

I didn't say i was the smartest. just said you where an idiot. its not my fault YOU refuse to do your research. i want input and opinions from experienced people. i have drivers I've tested and will build more until then i want something i can use to do these 2 18s and spank the haters here..

 

I'm always open to different prospectives unlike alot of people. I've treaed alot of people here really good. you're just not one of them.

 

if you have any input i'm still open even thought i doubt you have any..

Yeah...the price is steep...but these speakers are meant to be and compete with speakers the caliber of Scanspeak Illuminater series...the 4inch Illum's are $275 EACH...so in that regard they aren't too bad price wise.

**** man these 3" drivers are very inefficient. might just do a 4" on axis..

True...but you know the law...

Im going to cross them at around 800 so i don't think i need something large so... man these freaking 8" mids play HIGH.

800hz seems pretty hight to cross...I was always told to try and keep from crossing-over in the vocal range too much...400hz-ish being the max.

 

But that was just general advice.

if i can find something strong down to 500 id do that.

honestly ive never done a 3way. but the more i think about it the more i want a 4" crossed low like 400 or so.

If you have the room for a 4 inch and space to provide proper enclosure then there a quite a few options...The AF 2.5's are for those who want extension and have limited space, hence the size and tiny volume required. I can vouch for their ability to extend low and sound amazing...I've never used a driver so capable in that size. Morel just released a small diameter midrange:

May be worth looking into.

last time i heard morels they just didn't have a ton of output but this was a long time ago! i like the audiofrog but they are abit more than i wanted to pay. might save up for them if they hace the output and sound great.

this is a SQ system that has to be loud to keep up with the wall at moderate output..

I have morel integra 4's and I have them crossed down to 200hz with a 36db slope and they play just fine. Like was said before, I wouldn't cross-over in the vocal range like that, tuning would be even more of a pain than it is.

 

Are you using a dsp?

 

If you're running a wall with tons of power, I recommend doubling up on your mids. If you get a processor, most have presets that you can switch on the fly if you really just want to get loud or want to show off the sq.

Right now i have a twk 88. i just bought three new xenon 100.2s(my 200,4 shorted and blew all my drivers)

 

The mids are 8ohm and these will give me 250x1 er mid. its unorthodox but t was very cheap(380 for all three shipped BNIB) i'm gonna try one set for now because i can fit them in the factory location without a ton of modification. your right its gonna be loud as **** but its going ot be a wall that's tuned for comps to meter and then tuned very low for daily(28 o so) to get a nice flat response and to match the mids level like a SQ install would..

McCauley these from what i understand come out of one of their ****** line array systems. they aren't exactly bass heavy but they definitely sound good. i only had 100x2 on them and no EQ so I'm sure ill get killer sound out of them in my car..

Don't rule out planar mids. If you can put them on-axis and have space to mount them some of the larger ones could fill nicely from 400 to 2.2K. I did quite well replacing the 4" out of my old Boston Pro 3 ways with a B&G planar after the mids roasted from a head unit failure and they no longer made replacements down in Peabody.

man you know i been highly interested in the Dayton AMT. I've look into the planers as well.

i wanted to do a "floating" amp rack but i'm limited on time and space and it will be coming out soon for next year. so what i did is cut the board the width i needed and the mounting holes on the amps are about 2"s from the outside edges so i cut the wood wide enough to screw them down but not wide enough to be "exposed" on the top and bottom. this is going to give an appearance of them "floating" somewhat. I'm dying to use some plexiglass..i might do plexi covers for the wiring in the middle of the amps.
