Ok, I just got them and just got done putting them in! I am in love....I will elaborate more but for now I will just say.......WOW!
I did some quick listening just to set xover points: 3200hz@24db with a high pass on the midbass at 68hz also 24db.
This is the highest I have ever xover any two way setup....It works....It works really really really well I have a Boston acoustics GT275 on the tweeters (2x75) and a GT2150 on the midbass (around 175x2 at 3ohms...give or take). Its a great combo as far as power/components! (just to be clear..I am running active!) The processor for now is a ppi dcx-730...I love this unit but I am awaiting the new release of the alpine and rockford units!
Mounting locations are: midbass in the doors...they are very well dampened! and the tweets in the a-pillars....
I will say from just some quick listening that this is the widest stage I have heard from a simple two way setup with nothing special going on..... It was immediately noticable. The imaging was exceptional without any sort of adjustments made. This is why I have been such a fan of this set for so long....not sure why it took so long to put some into my own ride????
This is what makes this set so great....You can use almost any mounting options or locations and they are still going to be great. I cant think of another set that is so forgiving in this regard.
The midrange on this set is some of the best I have ever had (2way or 3way I was fiddling with the set before I had the tweeters hooked up and even the sound was all on the dash, detailed all to hell, and it sounded very full....this was a great start and also very surprising....I couldnt wait to turn on the tweeters..... The detail obviously greatly improved and stage height rose a bit more. The set is very revealing, detailed, and buttery smooth! The midbass was very snappy and tactful in its representation.....they were just flat out accurate from 68-3200hz!!!! No strain, no muddy reproductions etc... They are a great upgrade from the hertz hsk165xls..... I am so glad to have those out of my truck!
The tweeters are very flat (which to me is a very good thing) and at the same time airy.... I dont think you could even make them harsh if you wanted to! Some might even find them to laid back? I find them very pleasing!
I will update more with specific tracks and the breakdowns of them.....
Of course all of this is nothing more then my opinion.....just a grain of salt people!
Here are a couple basic pics.... They have a small diameter mounting hole which is really nice! They are also SUPER light!!!!
