Hello, I am building a custom box incorporating 2 6x9's and 2 12" speakers. Should I separate the 6x9's internally within the box from the subs, or should they be OK together?

Thanks!

why are you putting 6x9's behind you? ideally, you want to mids and highs coming from in front of you, and only bass from behind you.

I've got a set of components behind me and it sounds good, I used to have 6x9s behind me and it sounded good too. If he's got the room I give it a :thumbup:

MUCH different in the Xcab. It sounds better inside and definitely outside. with the door speakers so low to the floor you don't get a whole lot of noise out of them, right now my second set is pointed towards the roof in the back, a lot of people compliment me on the highs...

I'm going to glass the rear panels and put the components in them eventually, pointed towards the rear windows so I get a nice ting off the glass.

hm, i might just make it possible to add a set of 6.5" on my sub box, instead of putting the Infinitys in the door.

what size enclosure should the 6.5's go in, and should it be vented?

DEFINITELY separate them.
Woohoo! More work. Ideally, how much room should I give the 6x9's? (Inside) However, as it is, it's pretty cramped inside so I might only be able to give them an 'immediate' area.

As it is I might just be disabling the door speakers. I won't disable the front windshield ones though.

I ran mine open box and they sounded cool, Just needed a secure place to mount them. Ideally it'd be like .2 cu ft maybe?

when your at a concert, the sound comes from in front of you not from behind.
I know what your thinking, it adds more sound and makes my car louder and I need more highs, I was the same way a few years ago.
Music is supposed to come from the front!
I like it loud inside and outside the truck though.

Ja, that is a good point, but I can't fit 2 12s in the dash! Unless I cut them into many small pieces and glue them to it. I wonder how it would sound... Besides, the windshield speakers have some highs to them. And there's always tiny piezo tweeters!
