I want to build a basic system with a pair of 6" midrange in the front doors (DS18 preferred), a pair of tweeters on the dash, a pair of bullet/super tweeters and either one or two pairs (4 speakers) of 6" (DS18 preferred) midrange in the back dash and a subwoofer of choice in the trunk. Likely using just a preamp and possibly a 5 channel amp and a separate small amp to push the bullet/super tweeters, I will include the specs of the 5 channel amp at the end of my post, let's be clear loudness is not my priority but a clean sound is sufficient. Now my question is, should I/does it make sense to; pair a midrange and midbass speakers? Do I need midbass in this setup?

The amp specs are as follows; ●Class A/B Full Range 5-Channel, MOSFET Power Supply
3700 Watts @2-Ohms Max Power
413 Watts x 4 + 1125W x 1 RMS @2-Ohms
High and Low Level Inputs
Variable High Pass Crossover, Variable Low Pass Crossover, Bass Boost
Remote Subwoofer Control
Bridgeable

Pal, that Boss amp you interested in buying can maybe do 600W at best.

Is there any reason you prefer DS18?
Is there a budget you have in mind?
What size sub would you like?
What type of vehicle?

car audio in trinidad has looong reached a point where pro audio speakers is accepted as a normal standard in daily use systems :|

1st question i asked customers in my store is if ur playing music to hear mainly INside or OUTside of ur car , not judging anybody

if clarity\fullness not loud is ur main concern then why not simply use coaxials or components that plays most of d freq range & were designed for in car use ?

a pair of 50-100rms car speakers properly installed & amped is sufficient for most IN car listeners

if u already accustomed hearing a certain level of loudness by all means go whatever brand pro audio speakers, no scene ... :|

like i said i'm not really interested in loudness just want a basic system that sounds clean, it is really for a for a here and there vehicle and even considering maybe scraping up a few passengers if i feel to or might just give it to someone to "work"... so earlier today i saw some 6.5 soundstreams on Steve's electronics page and kinda set my mind to that 80% but its 150 watts peak each... so maybe 3 pairs, being 2spkrs on each rear channel 1spkr+tweeter on each front channel and a pair of bullet/super tweeters on a small amp... idk the idea sounds good to me

you're on point right here... honestly i had really good stuff in my lancer and just couldnt take that pounding in my head... lolz i actually tort to myself that me and anyone driving around with all that noise gotta be crazy lolz but i was almost going to make the same mistake with this car and then i rethought it through and like i said in a reply earlier some soundstream 6.5 @ 150 max peak seems good enough

I bought three mats of buzzmat from you just to get the extra oomph out of some cheap JBL components.

And even BEFORE i swapped in the JBLs/amp, the stock speakers sounded great with the damping/sealing I did.


Meeno why men does run down $1000 DJ speakers when $500 components and $300 in sound damping sounds LOADS better.
Men will spend a setta money for speakers and won't spend a cent on research/prep work.

The amp you have in mind would not be able to power 6 pro audio woofers, not even 4 properly. Looking at your budget, why not do some moderately priced coaxials or components on that same amp. These will sound miles better than a pro woofer and require less power. Additionally, you wont have to design a passive crossover for the stuff. As mentioned, it is more important to treat the door to achieve the best sound. You can check Rovin, he should have descent components/coaxials.
If loudness is not your priority, stay away from pro audio.
