3 ways can be harder to tune. However, if you're doing a DIY setup keep the midbass low pass crossover fairly low. At around 200 hz the frequency becomes rather non-directional, so aiming becomes less of a problem, as the driver can remain off-axis. That leaves you with a smaller driver and tweeter to work on your proper sound stage or imaging. You have a lot more options on where to put a 4" driver than a 6 1/2".

I've found that the higher (level with your ears) you can put your midrange and tweeter the better your soundstage will be. You'll want your midrange on-axis if at all possible (or at least as close as possible). Once again it's much easier with a 4" driver than a 6 1/2" to accomplish this.

Just my .02 cents
