    OK, I dont like it. Way too much bass. I had Neo listen to it and while we were I was gritting my teeth. Way too much boominess (not to mention that gawddamned 40 acre windshield screwing up the tweets).

    Also, at the Polkfest, we got to listen to some outstanding speakers including the SR's properly mounted and I heard how theyre really supposed to sound.

    So when I got home I re-set all my gains. Basically my Crossfire amps is WAY too much power for these. In order to keep them from bottoming out at loud volumes my mid's gain is not much higher than zero with the tweets virtually at zero. I may need to invest in a smaller amp.

    I also high passed them at about 60 Hz and dropped my sub down to 60. It is no longer boomy and sounds about right. I also have no bottoming out on any tracks at high volume (28 out of 35) so thats set.

    Neo, youre going to have to drive down to Chattanooga so you can listen to it again! Itll be better this time! :D

    Have you tried running the mids at 100Hz and the sub at 80Hz. This will leave a gap in the system, but if the boomines came in after going higher than 80Hz with the sub there might be a peak in your system around that range. Some people actually help tame some peaks in their systems this way.

    I was running the sub at 80 Hz before this and it still had a hint of too much.

    I listen to 98% heavy metal which has a lot of boominess to it anyway. I sat in the truck for about 30 minutes listening to several CD's with my new configuration and it does sound a lot better. The bass doesnt have as much imact as before but does blend much better.
