Almost always this will be a point lower than the mids gain so if the mids gain is set properly, you can be sure the tweets gain is in no danger of clipping.

    ah, good. i did it this way by trail and error eventually. it is a safe way in case anyone was wondering.

    Another thing about the 6500's. They might not get as loud as other drivers but because they're laid back and smooth it might seem they're not getting as loud as they really are.

    This is true. Bad distortion sounds invasive and gives a perception of loudness. In some cases some distortion can give a sense of "detail" but will ultimately lead to listening fatigue.

    *sigh* so...

    i want it loud and clean .. so i'll go this route:
    3-way built from my SR6500 and a set of SR5250

    the 5" will be in the kicks, using those tweets as the main tweets... they will play down to 200Hz

    the 6" will play midbass on the doors... and their tweets will be mounted on a-pillars as a secondary set of tweets.. playing 7KHz and up.. to bring the stage a liltte higher.

    i hope this works.

    Report your findings. I'd leave the a-pillar pair disconnected until you have have everything else working out, then play with them. You could also use them only and skip the ones in the kicks if everything is time aligned well enough. If you spend enough time experimenting, you should find something you like.

    Why not buy a pair of Focal KBE kit? Its a add on mid-bass kit to use with your existing components. They are better at playing lower than the polks & this may lighten the load on the sr mid & should be able to play louder & cleaner.
