Default ID CXS64 V.2 Questions

Okay, so I'm not trying to make a typical active or passive thread. But I do actually have the equipment and I'm wondering what the best way to install it is. I've got 2 sets of the Image Dynamics Chameleon 6.5s up front and an SAX100.4 on the way. I'm wondering if I should run the comps off the passive crossovers or active off of the sundown. I have an Alpine CDE-123 HU, and no processing. Just trying to get the best sound possible.

Also with the placement of the tweeters should they be close to the mids? Because I have my mids fiberglassed at the bottom of my door panels, and I was planning on fiberglassing the tweeters into the sail panels, or making some dash pods

Thanks for any help!

Depends. I mean most tweeters you want facing you but my dual ring radiators do good off axis so... Just try different placements until you find one you like.

I have just the midbass from this set and i run them active. i never heard the tweeters so i cant say on them but i am guessing they sound good considering the price of the comp set. i say run them active only if you have the right processing. I have my midbass on 100 RMS and they sound great. But if you go active make sure you deadin your doors the right way and it will pay off. active is the way to go my friend!

I would have to agree with you. I tried them active with just the limited processing on my headunit eq and amp and I was never happy. However I currently have them running passive on a Rockford T4004 I'm very happy with how they sound. I think if I ever get a processor I'll try going active again

i say go for it. i run mine at 60Hz up to 400Hz in a 4 way active setup. as long as you feed them clean power and at least the rated RMS *i say give them badboys at least 125 RMS* they will sound really good and be happy. If you can....do something with your install so you can aim them. what i mean is aim them both to the ceiling in the middle of both front seats. that will make a good difference. i have mine mounted on the door panel itself with the back of the panel done with sound deadening mat and a 6.5 MDF ring on the back of the door panal so the screws have something to go into. when i close my eyes i can not point to where the midbass is coming from.
