well not exactly "in"....but i put a towel behind each one and set it on the same angle it would be mounted....:)

crossed them over at 400hz....18db/octave...with the silver flute 5.25's running about 600 on down....and i turned off my xls's...since i don't have a good amp to run them anyways....

i had to chop 4k down fairly good...but after that....the image height/staging was the best i've had in this car so far....i've never had opeth's growl up above the dash and dead center....kinda fun....

downsides: the suckers are innefficient...male vocals did kind of lack some "body"....and i'm not sure if i like the top end or not....if i had the eq right now....i'd boost the top end a bit...but i don't....but soon :)


but....the passenger seat sucks :) but i really don't care....

got a pic of thsoe ? Ive never seen 2" tangbands

you should look into the auras, and the hivi's ") maybe they would sound better


this dude did some bad## reviews

according to him a $9 hi-vi is the best 3" midrange

and hey man Ill be sending my xls 8" 125 or so rms is that enough power? in your opinion
See less See more
i'm gonna have to build out the pillars for these 2's....not sure if i can fit 3's....i want it to be kinda stealth...i thought about trying the hi vi 2's....but zaph gave them a crappy review...and they are not efficient at all....i may just have to go with a tweeter that can go super low....like the morel mt-12...

if that's 125 rms at 8 ohms....then yes...they'll go bang bang bang....:)
yeah its @ 8 ohm , whew youhad me worried for a second,

yeah luckily my apillars are huge so im other going 2 ns3, or 1 4.5" vifa per side :)


havent decided which yet


from what I have read though the 2" just cant handle the power and are not loud enough, can you run two per side? it would be like tweeters :)


those new daytons in the review play down to 1500 I think and they are 4 ohm which is sweeet
