Default Today I discovered what SQ is (I think)

So my commute is 100 miles each way. I had taken my system out because of a possible parasitic draw.

Got tired of just stock mids, and I've been working non stop so I had no time to really put the system back in, so I threw the tweeters back in in an hour (as well as amp rack, amp + crossover and volt meter) and I have to say, after closing the windows, and adjusting the tweeters via pac lc-1, it sounds amazing! After 1-2 songs, I turned the tweeters up 100% (keep in mind the amp is at 0 gain to begin with and amp is seeing 4v from a cache cloc'd) and it was WAY too bright. And to think this is what I have been used to with excessive bass (for what the stock mids are, for level matching purposes, and to keep up with the sub)

I normally would have the windows down so the treble can pour out and I would actually need the tweets full blast since the bass is nearly over-powering them.

I did not hook the sub up, and it sounds great! It was lacking a little bit. I think I'm addicted to bass, because I can't even care about SQ when it comes to bass (and what I mean by this is, unless somehow, every single song is miraculously level matched by itself with both sub, mid, and high frequencies, then I typically have the bass up as much as possible...even if it drowns out everything else (I'm looking for higher powered mids to compensate for this, which I assume will fix it) I'm almost wondering if I even want to recone that 15" I have...I'm thinking a little 8" sub in the stock location would be perfect. Not even a SA8 but like a 250wrms 8" or something.

If this isn't SQ or in the right direction, then I would like to know what is.

All I have are tantric comps barely getting 80watts a door more or less and they are screaming! It may be because I'm 20 but every time I get out my car my ears are ringing haha for at least 20-30min. A soft ring. Nothing to be worried about lol love SQ but I love bass more.

Sq has bass, it has everything. Just because it doesn't do 150 doesn't make it sq. you want to really know what sq is? Go to a high end ht store, not bestbuy, and go sit in a 2.1 listening room. If its done right you will know exactly what sq is with me having to explain it.

I sat in some listening rooms. Found out the price, and gave up on sq.

For most people a well tuned $200 component set will be fine

If you want to get quality prepare to pay more
