What would you run? The front end is setup for tweets in the "A"s, fours in the side kick panel, and 8s in the kicks. The fours are vented into the door sills. The eights are vented into the frame rails.

Do you favor car, home, or pro audio brands?

What do you have for power & processing?

I have a MS-8 right now, but no amps. I am just looking at ideas.

Mic, I am not sure about them "horns" you talk of.

Without our wonderful leader, it is hard to run something that few people understand.

Want to keep the same brand for your front stage? Coz you can build a serious front stage with different drivers.
Midbass? Easy, PA drivers (B&C, 18Sound, Faital, etc...)
Midrange? I'd go with something that could play fairly high in order to keep the Xover outside voice range and mate better with the tweeter (since the tweets won't be close to the mids). HAT L4SE, Scan Rev 4s and Faital 4 seems like good candidates.
Tweeters? Planars should help you control dispersion up high - if choosen correctly, it might reduce enough energy from the windshield. OR AMT drivers, this one is relatively small...

I have looked into mix matching drivers. In the past, I have always ran one brand. In the 10 years of competing, I only ran iD speakers.

I am probably an idiot but what do you mean by side kick panel and kick panel? Can you post a pic or a link of an example?

If you insist on all one brand then I would look at HAT L8SE, L4SE, and L1 Pro-R2; Scan Illuminator 7, 4, and R2004/6020; or Dynaudio Esotar

But why limit yourself to just one brand?

I forgot about them build pics. Just like that company forgot about me. (I took too long to finish the install, so they dropped me from the team. So I dropped all their product.)

That was a L8 in the floor vented into the frame rail. The "side kick" has a L4 vented into the door sill.

The carpets match much better in person.

I am pretty sure I can fit a 5.25 in the 4 location. The 4 is flushed in, but the 5.25 wouldnt be.


Hell, I may break the 8 housing out and redo both areas!
