OK - so if you get a 5 channel, you'll bridge down to 2 channels for the fronts, and use the sub channel for the rear locations (those are the eu700's right?)

You're getting a lot of power out of those arcs. I'm afraid running the fronts passive on way less power is going to be disappointing

drove the car yesterday and I think I fixed all my rattles.. As for Amps, looking at a couple sites, there are people that still have their amps for sale.. and I am looking at $200-230 each for these..

Still trying to figure out where to put new amps.. I think the dual 5 channel amps could work, however I am not in a position for the amps and DSP all in one shot.. Need to look a bit more

Here is where I am currently with this:
This year, I switched the tweeters and 4s along with the passive crossovers. I have a DRT24 and ES-02 in the front using the mx1000 crossover. , I am thinking I could probably ditch the DRT24 and use the ES-02 by itself with the 6.5",

my concern is the 6.5" in door and 2" in the stock location only, however, the tweeter could be left there if I decide to add them back in.


I still have the other tweeters and 4s. I could swap in the 4s if I decide to stay 3-way. I think the ES-02 is a nice sounding speaker and if I am going to a DSP, ditching the DRTs for the ES-02 Wideband tweeters might be a better move.


Going by the above. I could do the PN4.520 and the PN1.650. then add the PN2.350 if needed later


The two PN5.640 would be good too.. offers a lot of flexibility..

however, I would need to install them first, sell the KS300.4 then buy the DSP.. due it a limited budget for car stuff


OR buy the DSP, use my current amps and go to a 2 way in front. Simpler might be better
