PRV Audio Local Speakers
MJS_IraggiAlts posted a topic in Subwoofers / SpeakersPRV AUDIO Vocal Speakers.... This may not make sense initially, but a high-quality speaker will have less bandwidth than a lower quality speaker... (for the most part) Just like a 3- or 4-way system is always better than a 1- or 2-way system. The narrower the bandwidth the speaker must play the cleaner it will sound. This will also keep you from asking the speaker to play up to its upper and lower frequency limits which are where it starts to sound "forced" to play those frequencies Pro Audio speakers are nothing new to car audio, but I see consumers not really knowing how to properly use them and having some issues which is understandable. These are totally different than your standard coaxial speaker If you look at the graph on the 6mr500ndy, which sounds amazing, you'll see that it can play from 90hz to 12,000hz... but if you narrow it down to what is plays "best" and more "naturally" it’s closer to 200hz to 10,000hz. Yes, it can play down to 50hz but not efficiently and not as well as 200 and up. Very low volume that would be fine but in what we do with the speaker you will want to cross it over closer to 200-300hz I get a lot of PMs asking if this speaker will pick up where my subs leave off? … around 60-80hz. I say no but the specs say "yes”. 99-13k so that may be a little confusing if you don’t look at the graph and understand what information it has in it So, for someone interested in using this speaker as a voice speaker, which I HIGHLY recommend, you will also need a "midbass" speaker to go with it such as a 10mb800 or 10mb500 or 8mb450. This leads me to another piece of information. PRV model numbers have an "MR”, “MB", "SW" or "W" in between the size of the driver and wattage of the individual speaker. MR=midrange MB=midbass W=woofer SW=subwoofer This is a general guideline for what the speaker is geared towards. That doesn’t mean an 8mb450 can’t be used for midrange or and 8mr400 can’t be used for midbass. That is where the graph and interpretation of the graph comes into play There is a lot more that goes into designing your front stage or your "voice" speakers that one of these days I’ll try and have a more in depth write up. The possibilities are endless...
I’m trying to see if someone can answer this question for me in simple terms. Basically I want to know what is going to happen to my signal as it’s going to be transferred and how multiple equalizers, crossovers, and gains will affect it. So basically, my head unit has a built in equalizer and crossover (they’re not that great though.) From my head unit the signal will go to an external equalizer I have. From the equalizer the signal is going to go into a stetsom 3way 6 channel crossover. The crossover is a crossover (obviously). From the stetsom crossover the signal will go into my full range amps. I have 2 amps, one for mids and one for highs. Now to make things even more confusing the crossover has individual gain knobs and so do the amps. Both of those amps have crossovers on them too. So how will the crossovers affect the crossovers when the signal transfers from one device to the other? And how about the equalizers? My guess would be to keep the crossover and equalizer settings flat on the head unit. Use the external eq for eq. Now the confusing part is I don’t know how the crossovers act with eachother. Does one fine tune the other? Should you try to match them? I hope this makes sense. If someone could help that would be great lol and yes I tried google

Front stage: am I doing it right?
akaak posted a topic in Subwoofers / SpeakersAlright so I'll give you guys some backround information. I have a 2008 Honda Fit Sport. 180 amp singer alt and xs d5100r under the hood, and 2 xs xp3000's in the hatch. 2 soundqubed 2200s strapped @ 2 ohms (each seeing 1 ohm) pushing 2 hdc315's in a 10 ish cu ft box tuned to 32hz. I don't k now how much port area there is, but it's a lot. These things get low. Sometimes I wish I tuned a little higher, but that's a whole other topic. I haven't played many test tones but on music I've been metered at 153.8 and as high as 149.9 @ 29hz. My mids and high keep up with the bass, but they're missing that "wow" factor. People that don't know anything about car audio will be blown away by 150+db of bass on music, but I want the vocals to be just as mind blowing. I like to leave room for improvement, so I'm not gonna get custom doors made quite yet. As of now I have a second box mounted on the front of my sub box with 4 soundqubed 6.5 pro audio speakers and 2 of there supertweeters. I have some old powerbass components (you don't even hear them). The tweeters have been blown for so long, sometimes I wonder whether or not I need them. I have a ppi 900.4 pushing the mids and highs. So basically my whole system consists of 2 hdc315's on 4.4k, and 4 soundqubed pro audio mids receiving about 100 rms each. It sounds damn good and range is unbelievable for only having 2 different speakers. Now comes to the real part where I need feedback. I don't know why, but I've decided to go with prv audio for my mids and highs. I'm gonna stick with my ppi 900.4 for now, it does a little more than 200 rms per channel x 4. Down the road, I'll be converting to a crescendo 1100.4. I know that 4 8 ohm speakers can be wired down to a 2 ohm load. So essentially I could run 16 8 ohm speakers on 4 channels each seeing 2 ohms. I want 4 8"s, 2 6.5"s, 4 of their highest end super tweeters, and 4 of their compression/wave guide combo (ostly because I think they'll Look cool). I'm going to try to upload a picture of my sketch so you guys can see how they would look in the box. What do u guys think about this. I know I'd save money by not having to get amother custom box made if I just went right with it and got custom doors made for all the speakers, but like I said I like to leave room for improvement down the road when I get bored again (probably 2 months lol). Any and all hel p is appreciated guys.
