Default anyone used rockford fosgate fnq

Hey guys. anyone used the rockford fosgate fnq3614 component set?
Its the fanatic q series

Rockford Fosgate FNQ3614 6-3/4" fanatic Q Components at Crutchfield.com

These are the ones on the link above. they are discontinued but i found one set of 6.5'' and one set of 5.25'' from an old stock of a friend of mine NEW in box.
Thinking of installing one 6.5 and one 5.25 side by side on each front door since i cant find a second 6.5'' set. What you guys think? Have you heard these before? sound quality? midbass? tweeter ? are they good?

if you want sound quality, use one set, or dedicate the 5 1/4 to midrange.(3-way)

They are nice speakers. The 6.5s will handle about 100 old school watts rms per side. {200watts per side by 2006 14.4v standard ratings}

Thanks mate for the feedback i appreciate it
My technician adviced me to use them 3 way but i think passive(?) i am not sure. I have seen many 3way systems that have the midbass in the door and the midrange in the kickpanel or above the midbasee but since i have already got my doors made when i used 2 sets of boston rc's 620 , and since i can only find one set of each size of these rockfords will it be a problem if i use them 3way but side by side? I could modify the one hole so it can perfectly fit the 5.25 but i have a difficult deciding which way. I mean which speaker should i have closer to me if i have them side by side? and will it work okay like that? Have a look at the door.



i was using the two sets of boston acoustics rc620. in the picture its the panel of the left side. should i install the 6.5 on the left of the panel and the 5.25 on the right side and the tweeter at the a pillars? will it work like that if both sizes are on the same level side by side? or is it a law that the midrange has to be higher than the midbass? i am an amateur so take it easy with me

okay i found something similar. its the alphasonik PCT6551 component set. it has a 6.5'' and a 5.25'' and a tweeter. its a 3way setup.
@iamsonic the idea you gave me about a three way setup just seen it in these pics?
how do they look? i dont know the guy but the setup looks nice and smooth. what do you think? should i do something similar side by side?

those are impressive door panels.

You would get better sound having the midrange forward in the door or in a kick panel.

I would recommend running 'active' for the midbass/midrange separation and using the Rockford crossovers for the midrange tweeter separation.
there are a few 4 channel amps that can operate that way.

I used the older models, they sound real smooth and punchy.
usually you want your midrange and tweeter as close as possible. I'd do the 6.5's in the door and the 5.25's and tweeters in the kick.
