As the title states, trying to decide which. I was pretty much settled on a 2 way bc it seemed like that was the safe way to go. I'm still fairly green when it comes to running active. This is my 1st time doing it, but knowledge wise I feel very comfortable after the last 16 months and being in the hobby for almost 20 years.
It's the actual tuning that I'm green with. I havent done a real tune before so I know there will be a bit of trial and error. Equipment wise I have a Dayton Audio DSP-408 that gets its signal from a Pac Ap4-gm61. I also have the Audiofrog Umi-1 tuning kit and will follow Andy's awesome write up when it comes time. I do pretty much everything DIY, I installed my entire system, the only thing I subbed out was my enclosure. So I feel like once I start playing with the DSP & tuning software I will get the hang of it pretty quickly. My vehicle is a 2018 Silverado Double Cab. If I go with the 2 way front stage I'll be putting 6.5s in the door locations & tweeters in the dash locations for my 1st try. If I go 3 way front the 6.5s would stay in the doors, tweeters I think I'd move to flush mounting in the sail panels and then I'd put a mid or full range in the dash, something for around 500hz-5,000hz ballpark range....
- Tang Band 2525-2176s 1" tweeters
- SB Acoustics SB17NRXC35 6.5s
- Memphis 15-PRX275s 2.75" Full range (Currently installed in dash location- Wouldnt keep in 3 way active setup unless theyd really wow me. Would rather have dedicated mid, 2-3".)
I just cant decide what I want to do. I'd say start with the 2 way and go from there, trial and error. Which will in all likely hood prob happen, but I just get so little freetime that installing speakers and doing a proper tune is a big project. It's not easy for me to swap out and do trial and error... Wish it was.... But I know a lot of guys have this truck or the Sierra version so I know I can get some input. I'm just worried about the stock dash location when it comes to my tweeters, how is the off axis aiming going to sound vs running a 3 way n putting the midrange there...
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
