My goal is to run an active 4-way setup.

Seas 27TBFCG tweet
dayton rs125s mid
image dynamics cx62 midbass
Seas Lotus 12" Subs

All this run off of a Pioneer P9 combo, a tru 2.100, tru 4.65 with bb upgrade, tru hammer.

I have a Scion tc and I was planning to rebuild the door and run all three drivers on axis as much as possible and run the seas in the rear hatch area.

My main questions are:

A)Is there anything glaringly noticeable that would cause you to change this setup?

B) Would there be any good in mounting the tweet and mid in a pod on the a pillar and the midbass in the door?

C) Would a small sub custom built into the dash do anything for imaging?

Any and all advice/criticism would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Looks good to me, although the ID cx62 looks a bit out of place. As a mid/bass I'd probably try to find something with higher excursion and output.

As for B, that sounds like a good idea. Although I'm always a bit hesitant to mount drivers up high because of all the hard reflective surfaces.

C, probably not. You can achieve very good bass imaging without such drastic measures. Plus low frequencies dont' really "image", you tend to locate them based on higher frequencies.

Thanks npdang. The only reason I put the ID in there is because by spec it seems to give the most output. I just want a midbass that kicks so hard that it takes my breath away while still sounding clean. Any suggestions?

Thanks dodger. I don't plan to play these midbass speakers very high frequencies so really my focus is on midbass output and the ability to go low as possible.

unless you already own a pair of id cx 62,s, i would take npdangs sugg,and look for a 7 in. driver with more linear x-max,npdang did review the seas g 18rnx for 67.00 ea and measured 9 mil x-max one way ,thats sick for a 7 in driver. the id62 is around 4-5 mil linear i believe
