    That's very cool. I have a midbass amplifer, the hifonics brx1616.4 so I think I'll get some speakers with a phase plug for midrange. And add some midbass speakers as well.

    Re: need suggestions for mid range drivers and some tweeters. Ohh... and everything e

    Looking for 4 midbass drivers is kind of starting to begin. Is there a difference in size and quality of sound? Or is it go as big as possible and they will play louder? I plan on running 4 x 400w rms @2ohm. Taking suggestions for some awesome drivers.

    Does anyone had the chance to listen to a multiple tweeter set-up, say more than 4 in a car and thought it sounded good; should I be sticking with just 4?

    I don't want to buy another hifonics amps to drive the tweeters, midrange speakers and might spend quite a bit here to make an active setup. I feel the hifonics amplifiers are fine for bass/midbass however.

    This all means I'll be needing a 14 channel dsp! (4 mid range, 4 tweeters, 4 mid bass, 2 subwoofer.) And there aren't many options so if anyone knows of a nice one please let me know. I'd hate to have to use two dsps but If that's the ticket then I'm in.

    Larger cone area usually means more output at lower frequencies.

    Generally, in most cases, and the consensus is from what I've read and have been exposed to, the less drivers playing the same frequencies the better for imaging and accuracy.

    Is there a reason you want multiple mid-range and tweeter drivers? What are your goals? Proper imaging and accuracy or just maximum SPL and Wow factor?

    What we've got here, is failure to communicate...

    The best advice we can give you is keep it simple... multiple mids and tweets will cost more and likely sound worse.

    I admit I'm in it for the wow factor, however it'll be fun to sq. I really like the sound of too many speakers.

    Agreed, my truck has a pair. Bridge that amp to a pair, deaden and seal doors and done. 16 mids will NEVER sound good. Forget quantity, focus on quality

    tl;dr- if you wanna use all those drivers, doesn't matter what you buy...

    Which wow factor? Wow, look at how much equipment I can squeeze into a vehicle? Or... Wow, look at how great I can make this sound with very little equipment?

    If you look through the Classic Builds, youíll probably notice that in the late 80ís/early 90ís quantity seemed to reign. By the middle to late 90ís though, the consensus had changed to 3 to 8 total speakers.

    It's a bit of trying to fit allot of speakers in while still having the ability to sq it. Right now this being said all the speakers will be tucked away and hidden.
    I know it won't be a perfect sq build however it'll have a huge wow factor.
