    I got the lows (15" sub) and I got the highs (3-way Pioneer 6x9's) but I think I am missing the mids. I have the stock 3.5's in the front and Pioneer 6x9's in the back. However my speakers have no "punch" to them. I know the 3.5's aren't going to put out much except highs. So I would like to know what I can install to get some mid range punch in my Jimmy. Would a component system be the way to go and get rid of the 3.5's?

    Thanks

    How about a PAIR of 6 or 6.5" midbass drivers in each door??

    Cross them over at around 80Hz on the low end, and maybe 2000Hz on the high end (depends on how low your tweeters can play down to...)

    Feed them with LOTS of power, and dynamat the heck out of your doors.....

    That should start to bring up the mid-bass. It might even help to give the illusion that your 15's are "snappy"!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And I would keep the 3.5" in the dash, but upgrade them to an aftermarket pair. It'll help with the sounds when you have the top off.
