right now I have xls 8's, vifa mg10's, and fountek neopro 5i's

I'm kind of contemplating keeping the fountek's and getting some nice 7"ers instead of going with the 3-way. For ease of tuning and installation, 2-way seems like the better choice.
comments? suggestions?

since your ribbons play so low why go 3way

cross those babies at 1500 hz and man you have the easiest 2 way ever
you can get 90% of the low end output with a good 7"

id say on the cheap side get the new fiberglass seas drivers :)
on the mid level by ksins cdt 07 drivers
on the expensive get some revelators and seal em up :)

seems a bit overkill with tweets that play that low
but hey im too am trying a 3way, well thats the plan for now lol

these peerless driver are looking harder and harder to mount in door pods lol 8.9" around is nooo joke

I liked the mids, probably the best Ive heard to date (that isnt saying much tho, I dont have a lot to compare them with). Its the tweeters that I was not impressed with. With a good set of tweets they would really come alive.

at this point in fab disarray, I wish I could have afforded to run two 07's

the day I sell/ship min some guy on SD sells hispair for 150

I was PISSED lol

the XLS is a very nice 'looking woofer though" its definitely a woofer with 90db @ 8ohm, thats pretty impressive

for me the depth is not the issue ( I have close to 4" stock), its the surround size 8.9"

my deck wont get here till next thursday so Ill have a full review of my new 3 way and deck at that time


DIY is fun , although time consuming lol
