I'm going to be redoing my system for SQ. I'm getting a DEH-80PRS and plan to run active... I've ordered the Tang Band 6x9 subwoofers for the rear deck (need trunk space and seats to go down so trying to avoid subs, will simplify my system as well).
For the front stage I plan to run 6.5" woofers in the doors and then tweeters on the dash (OEM locations). I will be keeping my 4 channel JVC Arsenal KS-AR7004 amp which pushes 100W RMS per channel at 4ohms with THD of <0.04% for the mids and tweets, and I'm picking up an Alpine MRV-T320 and running it bridged one channel with the 2 Tang Bands wired up in 4 ohm parallel.
Now, I was looking at the ID CTX6.5cs components as I've heard great things about them, but since I am going active, I was thinking I can get more bang for my buck by sourcing raw drivers.
For tweeters, I'm looking at the Vifa NE25VTS-04's
But for the mids, I'm having some trouble... I'd like them to be amply powered (but not way overpowered) by my 4 channel. I've heard good things about the Dayton RS180's but I am worried that they may be too overpowered by my amp (unless I get the 8ohm versions... Thoughts on this?) or that they might not sound good enough mounted in my doors.
And this brings me to sound deadening.... I'm not gonna be layering my doors with sound deadner, but I just want to strategically place deadening along my door and trim (and the rear deck for that matter) based on which parts of the panel resonate the most... I was looking at Second Skin's products (feel free to suggest others as well), but I'm curious if I get the door kit, how I should apply my sound deadening on my door that it'll give me the best returns for minimum coin. I am a student on a budget and I'm not looking for the best in the world, but just a well rounded, nice sounding system for daily use. Not looking to enter any competitions lol... This goes for all my system components.
Any suggestions that would be good for my application? My Car is a 04 Camry, and I listen to everything under the sun, from rock to rap, dance to jazz, and everything in between (except country... Don't get me started on that lol)
