Default Front stage setup question

OK this will be going into a 00-06 model tahoe , the equipment I have is : 3 sets of sqt2 american bass tweets, 4 stealth series 6.5" ab mids, a pair of 8" stealth series ab mids, 80 PRS hu and ppi 88r dsp .

My truck have the tweets in the a pillars vs. Front doors. 4 12" sub's will be my substage as well.

Here's my two options I'm trying to decide on

1) 1 tweet, 1 6.5", 1 8" in each front door..1 tweet , 1 6.5" in each back door and tweets in the a pillars.


Or

2) tweets in the a pillars, 2 6.5", 2 tweets, and 1 8" in each front door and delete the rear fill



I don't want my front stage to be over bearing but not to lack when keeping up with the substage. What do you guys suggest would be my best speaker placement ?

Rear fill will do absolutely nothing. You won't have to worry about tweeters being harsh since the pillars pretty much point at the windshield

I say put everything in the front door. 3 tweeters, 2 6.5's, and a 8" right?

I have 3 sets of tweets, so 6 six tweeters in all and I'm going to put one set in the a pillars for sure. So that'll leave me with 4 tweeters to place somewhere

If you can pull it off, I'd f go 1 set in each a pillar then the third in the center of the dash

Not sure if this is a common thing but I kind of wanted to get a dedicated driver for 40-100hz to compliment the prv 6mr500's which are 100-1k I think...they extend nicely into tweeter range so they blend well into the upper range. Just a thought.

I'd do all front door and no rear fill if it were me.

Is the 8" going to be used as a midbass or as mid range along with the 6.5"?
Do you know what the frequency response of the speakers are on and off axis (i couldn't find any graphs from ab).

I can't find none either but I will be trying to use the 8" as a midbass. Funny thing to me is the little paper that came with the speakers says that the 8" is 100hz-10khz and the 6.5" is 80hz-8khz. Is that common for the smaller of them to be able to dig a little deeper than the 8"? And will the rearfill be pretty audible up front?

Well unfortunately AB isnt the most accurate/up to date with their specs. Generally speaking I've seen most car audio pa speakers have minimal difference in frequency response on the low end between the 8" and the 6.5" (usually within 10hz sometimes 20hz or slightly more).

If you go to the American Bass website the contact number is there. Bob will usually answer (at least when I've called).

Do you think i could get away with running my 8s 80hz-300hz without damaging them even though the spec sheet says they are 100hz frequency?
