    Hey, just wondering on your stance with the JBL ms-8 and horns? I know you've used them and had some issues, but I heard from someone else that you were able to still get your car to sound very good with the m-8, what's the real story?

    Hello,

    I'm sorry to bother you, but just saw that you have (had?) some Image Dynamics q450.4 amps. How's your experience with them, if you don't mind my asking?

    I have been a long time (10+ yrs) user of Zapco amps; my last build has an older generation DC Ref, driving some 3 way Morel Elates. Very, very happy with Zapco.

    However, now I need to build a lower priced setup, and need to choose between an ID Q450.4, a Zapco I-Force 4100.4, or 2 newer generation Zapcos ST-2D. Looking only at SQ and build quality, what would be your recommendation? The amp will be driving some 6.5 Morel Tempo components and an 8" ID woofer.

    Thank you for your comments, and I apologize if this message bothered you in any way.

    I saw an older post that you had a pair of JL Audio 13tw5's in an IB install. I know this is very subjective, but I was wonder if you give an idea of how tight the bass is in this install. I will admit up front that I am a bit spoiled in that I have previously only used 10" subs in sealed enclosures. But tight hard hitting bass is my highest priority and I am in a situation now that IB is about my only option. How would you say your IB setup would compare to a typical pair of 10's in sealed boxes?

    Hey Mic,

    I'm currently helping a friend put together a new setup for his E36 coupe, and could use some advice. The current setup is 2-way 6.5" Elemental Design (eDi6000) component, passive, running of a 80prs and being powered by a Nine.4 (75watts/channel). We're also using HAT 6x9's in the rear deck powered by the same amp, and a 12" RE XXX subwoofer in a sealed box powered by another amp.

    We're having trouble getting width on the front stage and also getting the sub to sound less muffled.

    Was wondering if you had any advice on what to do?

    We were planning on re-doing most of it, using a 2-way active front stage and either doing a different sub, and removing the 6x9's. Another option is using a pair of IB mounted 8's in the 6x9 location.

    Thanks in advance!

    Mic,

    Do you have pictures on how you treated your center console?

    I see. Maybe I'll try taming reflections after the competition. It's a hell week for me. I'm tuning 2 cars for friday's competition.

    It seems ok with everything I threw into it. But I just wished that the tweets were a tad more natural sounding. I really hate boosting...specially that big...it's just asking too much from a speaker that can't play those frequencies. How I wish I was just tuning a Focal system...it's easier to just eq out than eq-ing something in.

    Thanks alot for the tips. I hope we do fine.

    center console reflection. now that you mentioned that I had the same problem in my BMW right the left image. Far left was good. center was good but left of center was off by a couple inches.
    It was b/c of reflected energy off the center console
    Once I tamed that by making some pads, it fixed the problem.
    see what happens if you put a thick towel or blanket over the center console

    glad things are sounding better, is it just better with the EMMA disc or overall?
