Default Front stage help

I've done my first build in 10 years I'm happy with the sub and would like to work on front stage , I'm running a leviathan 6 ch amp and currently have a cdt 3 inch component set in dash and mmats pro6.5 components set in the front doors it's sounds good but it's not perfect, I definitely like the sound on the cdt set . My quiestion is what to run how many and I want sound quality that will keep up with my subs currently about 7k , I've heard good things about hertz but not sure if the are loud , would a bit one dial in what I have or just switch?, any insight and advice is appreciated

best thing i'd recommend is get proper processing and just do a big cone area pro audio build. You can achieve great SQ pro audio as long as you have the proper processing and install. I wouldnt not advise it without any processing though. You need to tame it a lot.

I Kinda dont like the sound on most pro audio set ups , loud but not real rich i feel like it fatigues my ears but you def like hertz over cdt, going to check pricing on the hertz

I agree 100% on the processing. The car environment has far too many different angles and different materials for sound to bounce off of. Good processing can make junk speakers with weak amplification sound pretty good. Imagine what it can do if you combine great speakers, and clean powerful amplification (like your Zed Amp provides).

If you still aren't convinced go demo a processor at a local dealer who sells them, you'll be sold. The difference in the car's soundstage, clarity, and frequency response will be enormous.

I'd recommend a product like the JBL MS8 or the Audison Bit-Ten. Do your own research though. I haven't researched processors in a year or so, the tech changes constantly. Buy whatever suits your needs.

Well hertz over CDT coming from a guy that says run pro audio but you dislike pro audio. So if you think about it, his opinion is invalid to you.

Although I like pro audio, and I've been running pro audio for the past 9 years.

Ear fatigue and hollow sound are tuning issues. You want loud and proud go pro audio and as said above be sure to have proper tuning power on hand.

If you really want to get down go HLCD and a pair of 10" midbass.

I don't know how hertz is infinitely louder then cdt? Loud is a matter of the amount of power sent to them. Not like a hertz comp set has double the sensitivity of a cdt set.
