Hi polk friends!
Last summer I decided to build a badass tailgating rig in the trunk of my 02 cadillac for western michigan football games. *Installed 15feet of color changing LEDs, removed my spare tire and waterproofed the cavity to use as a cooler, build a red solo cup holder, etc. * as for audio I put a cheap pair of mtx 12in subs and amp (800w 250rms) and I build a hanging piece of wood wrapped in metal with a clear lightup plexiglass face with two polk MM 691 mounted in it. *It's hard to describe and I will post pictures as soon as I can upload them to another site.. *
Anyway my question is this... *The system is freaking badass. *I love the MM series more than any other speaker I have played with.. However I want to upgrade.... *I'm looking at two polk mm 1240 subs (425rms. each) with a realitively cheap boss 4000w (1600 "rated.." Rms) amp running at 80percent power to keep it clean.
I know that adding all of that bass is going to drown out my speakers for sure. *That's the part I need help with... *Do I add a pair of MM rounds to get more high and midrange?? Or would the db tweeters do the trick?? issue is that these speakers are hanging from my trunk and I'm afraid another set of speakers will be too much weight... *I'm not looking to gain any bass at all (I set the crossovers to about 150hz and the speakers aren't enclosed in the back so they emit very little bass or midrange as it is..) i simply want more treble (which I love!!) and a bit more overall noise.. *Would the db component tweeters do the trick?? I've never played with them at all and am not entirely sure how to wire them in or if they would give me the sound I'm looking for. *I don't really like the db line, but to the best of my knowledge I can't buy a set of mm tweeters.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me!!! *I will upload pics soon...
Just a side note... I love the MM line because they are so distortion free. *Clean sound is the most important thing. *Followed by more noise. *I want it to carry a bit farther and drown out everyone else's audio nearby.
