I have a 2000 escalade I'm starting a whole new build on. I want it to sound good but it's main job is gonna be demos. I sold my dd9515s and am replacing them with 4 sundown sa15s on the same massive audio d8000 I had on the dds. I'm looking to replace my hertz amp for the kids and highs. Right now I have a pair of diamond audio 6.5s in the rear doors and a mix matched set of components in the front doors Mb quart 6.5 Polk mono crossovers and tweets and some no name 3.5 in some fiberglass pods on the upper corner of the door panel. I'm considering a hifonics Brutus 4 channel. I have a clarion eq I might use also but not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
Yeah sorry I'm looking for advice on decent components for the front doors and 2 ways for the back doors that will keep up with the sub output. I'm expecting 150s with the 4 15s as my two 15s did 151s on average, but they overpowered my mids and highs. I would mind running two sets of 6.5s up front I can build a fiberglass door pod. My main concern is I'm not that good at SQ builds I've only done Spl
I just put in the beyma 8g40 8's in my doors with image dynamics hlcd under the dash. 700 to each 8 and 180 to each hlcd. They are loud. And play smooth with some dsp eq'ing. If you can fit 8's try them. They'll keep up with 150 easy.
I think one set of quality components shoud be enough. The reason your previous setup had problems keeping up is because you had mix and match components up front amd they probably weren't quality components.
I have a 99 denali that I just ran pro audio prv 6.5s in the stock location with pa tweeters in the doors. I also put 2 prv horns in the rear 4x6 bose location in the cargo area above the subs. i don't have any problems at all keeping up with my 6 12s tuned to 30. How high were you tuned to do 151 on only 2 15s? My set up does 150.7 sealed on the dash with 7k at 43. Are you going to keep everything in the cargo area with the 4 15s?

My box is tuned to 45 did 151 at 49 on a massive d8000 at 1 ohm so around 2k. Driver door open sensor in the kick. The termlab should be accurate as when I had my 18s on a saz1500 I I metered 145.7 at a show at JC's here in San Antonio and I scored a 145.9 on my friends termlab. Yes the 4 15s will be in the cargo area subs up port up( I just wanna try it this way) below window line and tune at 28hz. I'm wanting a wind machine lol.
