Default Need help with passive 3way setup.

So I think I found the right amp that has a bandpass filter to run my midbass. I am trying to build a nice sounding setup that will be loud enough to keep up with my 12-12s substage.
Here are my two options. Midbass for 50-300
https://www.parts-express.com/pe/sho...number=290-322
8'' and 6'' midrange for the 300-3000hz range.
https://www.parts-express.com/pe/sho...number=292-208
Or the all dayton setup. Seems nice just not sure on how loud it will be.


Any advice is helpful. My budget is 200 for two 10s, two 8, and two 6s

It makes more sense to me to be looking at PA drivers, but those will surpass your budget. You'll have to make up for the difference in sensitivity with a lot more power. That's why people go with pro audio mids and super tweeters with a giant sub stage.

Ok. So what about the two Dayton 10''s for my midbass and then two PA 8s for midrange?

Ok I decided to run one PRV 10'' from 50-400hz, one PRV 8'' from 300-3500, and one prv horn from 3k+. What kind of power would you guys run to each door?

thats 3 amps (or 1 2 channel and a 4 channel.

You'll need atleast

10s-600w
8s-500
"horn" - 250

so each door would have 675w. the low sensitivity of prv means you'll need the power.

Ok. I think I am going to run the Precision Power PPI S760.4 on the 10s and 8s and my kicker 350.2 on the tweeters. Thats the best affordable 4ch with a BP crossover I can find.

Ok here is the plan. Run the 10'' from 50-400hz ported with a 2'' aero at 45hz. Seal the back of the 8'' using that foam baffle as a mold to fiberglass from 300-3500hz and then the PRV horns from 3k+....... please tell me I didn't **** up lol

I thought the 10's were going in the doors? I'm lost now. Lol

Oh. And also this is going active not passive. That confused me a bit as well.

I was going to do a passive setup until I found the new PPI amps that I can actually afford. I am porting my door panels for the 10'' and sealing the back of the 8s.
