Front stage has been changed due to a bet people here sre telling me passive sucks and it wont sound good. Challanhe accepted. Im still using thr same amps but thr front stage will consist of DRT-26 Silk Tweeters, ES-02 Midrange, HD-M6 Midbass Drivers, MX-1000SX Crossovers. They have been ordered from @ANS i am not working on the interior deadaning and that stuff.

I've heard plenty of passive setups that sound good. With that being said, I have no doubt they would sound better going active.
You already have a Mosconi dsp, why not use it?

I am using it issue is its only a 4to6. To run 3 way active id have to upgrade. Also i have minimal room and i mean minimal. I found a matching set of amps that fit and im not buying new amps.

So thered those few reasons

If you have had active systems in the past, I have no idea how you are going to be happy with passive...

I would take a 2way active over a 3way passive any day. Though, I am not sure if that makes sense with the equipment you already have...

IMHO

Those ES02 would work fine as a 2 way active. Crossed around 1200-1500 they meet any decent 6.5” mid bass. They play well into the 17k range and unless you are an 18yr old kid you can’t hear past that anyways :)

As noted I will take an active 2 way over a 3 way anyday. The tuning options are much better.

I am in on this one, can’t wait to see the install!

Again. Its just to prove a point. I like challanges

Looks good.
I believe ccf is essential whether or not you will be using mlv.
Following.
My understanding since way back was ccf is just a decoupler for MLV. But it doesnt hurt anything having it i guess.

I have a ton of melemine foam as well im sure i can stick somewhere too

I use it to decouple the door skin from the plastic panel. Before I had tons of rattles and resonating
