Hi everyone, Here is a list of the things I have so far. I am wondering if I can still use it or will an upgrade be worth it.

Alphasonix 4' components
alpine type R 6.5 woofer
MB Quart add a woofer crossover.
Alpine MRX F30

I have a GTI which has a 3 way from factory. The alphasonix component was the only thing my stereo place had on hand. the 4'mids have no punch at all, is this normal? i have the amp crossover at around 100hz. anything less it will distort. the alpine is wired through the mb quart woofer crossover(50 - 500hz) the crossover on the amp is set at 80hz. They also ordered me a pair of earthquake 6.5 inch subwoofers which would replace the alpine 6.5 woofers. (arrive next week). I have 2 10' kicker subs which I like.

Before i knew it, i had Frankenstein for a system. I am debating on canceling the earthquake woofers and try to return the alphasonix for store credit. and ordering something on sonic electronix. the dls reference look ok as do the JL 3 ways, which is about as much as i want to spend. I can also just replace the alphasonix with a DLS 4' component and use the 6.5 earthquakes, but how would i cross over the earthquakes?

I am going to keep the stock HU, was thinking of getting Kicker KX3 (03KX3) electronic crossover. I currently have a cheap LOC.

any suggestions, advice, or criticism would be appreciated.

Thank you.

The problem is you have all these different speakers and no way to make them work together. Crossovers, EQ, T/A, or even a well designed passive crossover.

Getting a 3-way component set will be cheaper than most other options. Of which is keep the speakers you have and buy the correct passives OR get a DSP unit like the MS-8.
