Recently saw this set up online. I have always wanted to try a set of horns but the body of the horn hit several things under my dash so a no go. Has anyone seen a pair of mids and tweets run in this manner? Obviously, I know several run A pillars and dash mount, I dont think I have ever run across the mids/tweets mounted under dash like this. Without hearing, would this function similar to a horn playing under the dash?
thanks for the info. would a set up like this potentially work if using only a single mid and tweet and the drivers were placed in the correct location out near the door panels vs near the center console?No. A horn works with a single drive and the waveguide alters the dispersion pattern and acoustical gain of the driver. These would operate like having two center-channel sound bars in front of you. The M-T-M spacing will work to create a comb filter to limit horizontal dispersion in the midrange. It would be like sitting in front of a single center channel only speaker with a tweeter off in the distance.
Unless they're working with an ambiophonics processor....
It looks good. For a cruiser it's probably fine. For a SQ install, it's total trash.
thanks for the clarity on why this was done this wayStill, Curtis posted them and they're obviously not waveguides. They're just under dash speakers.
"This was just a better solution instead of having one center speaker in the dash. The customer had the same thing done in his last Camaro. Not an SQ car by any means. Just wanted a decent setup without changing anything about the car."
