Yes, you still need tweeters. Advantages are higher sensitivity (louder) and they dont play quite as low, which means more power handling. They are for getting loud and less about "warmth" of how a speaker sounds.

Thats my understanding of it.

I'm kind of in the same situation, doing a small build for my dad. Was planning on running one 8' per door. Thought the 8' would give it more mid bass. But now looks like I'm going back with the 6.5.

I really think it boils down to a personal choice..I often tell folks considering the switch from regular speakers to pro audio is to at least try to listen to a set before you make your plans set in stone. I had to do the same thing, just had to buy a set myself and let my ears be the judge.

Its alot of pros and cons on both sides of the market, (PA vs Regular Speakers) and everyone has their favorites, so just make a decision you want to.

Ive run them both several times and like them both, but im a bit more PA now,

pro audio sucks major ass at anything requiring sq, they get loud that's it.
High distortion, low bandwidth, high efficiency.

I tend to disagree that comps will be better then PA. Its the same that they are better then coaxial (properly built), just isn't true...

If you don't have any form of external DSP such as a MS-8, etc... I wouldn't only because it takes more tuning due to the sensitivity of the speaker to achieve the same a comp set would... Comp sets are more forgiving then PA... Also with PA speakers people tend to through full power to them when IMHO they sound just fine under powered...

There are to many factors that go into car audio such as speaker placement, tuning, proper deadening, etc that have a majority of the effect on how speakers sound...


Currently I'm running Crescendo 6.5's in my doors crossed at 50 hz running of my MB Quart PVL crossovers and using the tweeters and its night and day between the two mids...

a good set of components installed correctly will destroy PA speakers also installed correctly, when it comes to sq.
