Not me. The object is to recreate the sound as intended by the artist. With the application of bass, i try to make it appear that the bass signal is coming from the front. Very difficult objective to meet. The rolling over my head affect, is the last thing i want.[email][email protected][/email] said:I've been in some rides that massage your back when you put in a bass CD. Is that what you're shooting for?

Cksport- I too am being secretive. But as we're listing professions, I'm an editor with Mobile Entertainment magazine, the former Car Stereo Review.
pokey- different crossovers mean of course different crossover points. The Focals may be responding better to the biwire setup, as you mention. It has always been my experience that a midbass deserves and performs best with a dedicated amp channel, and clear of power-robbing passive crossovers. In any event, that's a tonal and dynamic set of drivers, very nice sound right out of the box.
Horns could very well be a good solution given the terrible dash we're forced to work with. Horns are not necessarily more difficult to tune but often prove superfluous in a properly arranged front stage. They usually need to be bolstered with a midrange and tweeter, which sort of defeats their purpose. But they can be done right. Also, look into an aperiodic membrane/enclosure for your midbasses to conserve space.
I'll be happy to enter any stereo comp once this is finished. I fear that too few people will be well versed enough in the IASCA-type criteria to appraise it accurately, but I have some good plans to arrive at remarkable sound. I've always been in SQ first and foremost, and this car will be a definitive statement in this direction for the 3s world.
