So you can't have more than 2 tweeters and still have decent SQ? Like I said, I'm not going for the ultimate audiphile award winning front stage or something. I was thinking of putting 2 in each a-pillar, pointing towards the opposite window, to protrude outside the vehicle as well.
I don't know what they are getting exactly. Line driver might be kinda high, amp might be under-rated...etc. They get loud as shit, but they aren't keeping up, and I don't even have the sub in an optimal enclosure yet.
Plus I just want to have a buttload of speakers everywhere...you mean to tell me there is NO way to have 8 drivers in the dash, a-pillars and vents and still sound somewhat decent? Why wouldn't it sound good? I have a 3 way crossover to filter everything precisely.

If SQ is your goal go hope over onto DIYMA and see what those guys are running.
I have a dream...of a way to put drivers in all 4 vents and still sound someone decent...doesn't need to be amazing audiphile standard...after watching this vid, I have been wanting to do it and I simply must at least try it out first.

I had some $140 kenwood 2-ways from best buy. They literally sounded the exact same as my stock tweeter and mid range. I did a side by side comparison. kenwood in driver side, stock on passenger side. Same power, same amp. I'm currently up to $80 for crossover, tweeters and mids...$100 if you count the additional 2 tweeters I am planning on putting in. Tell me why anyone in their right mind would choose components over custom selection of tweets mids and an electronic crossover that you can change the setting on and use with any other tweeters or mid range drivers that sound louder, cleaner, and cost less?
I'm not trying to go for full on SQ - maybe a slight direction towards SQL?

Whatever wattage I'm giving the sub, might as well be considered whatever the sub can actually handle, since there is very little difference in giving a 1600w rms sub 1200w, and giving it the actual 1600 it can take. It's marginal. It's like over clocking a CPU or putting a turbo on a 4 banger - minimal performance increase, high possibility of equipment failure.
