Weren't me.. Never had a bit.1. You might be thinkin' of Erin or someone. Actually I think it was Autiofile I might have gotten it from. Getting you guys confused. It's coming back to me, you were using the same TB drivers in a speaker design that I picked for the civic mids.
But I've been rockin' the MS-8 no issues in the Civic since way back when through the W6-789E's.. However, I fear I've smoked the left front mid, but not to be a thread hijacker. Those drivers sound killer but rated for low RMS. Gotta tear into it and test it out to see if it's the driver or baffle or something.
But considering moving the MS-8 over to the new taco. My wife's gonna kill me if I go tearing into the sound system on this truck, but it looks sooooooo inviting for a nice 2-way + sub.
Got some uber cheeeeezy Massive Audio RK6's sitting unused on shelf with those big honkin' kevlar mid drivers that are probably the better part of the kit. Maybe a solid low-reaching tweet in the stock location.. NVX SB Acoustics ring radiator driver maybe? Add box between rear flip-downs with a solid 10". I fear the stock touchscreen, as lovely at it is, will be the weakest link. That's the thing that gives me pause, though I'm sure the MS-8 was made for such challenges. Though the OEM speaks are crappy, the head unit "seems" to put out a fairly decent SQ by OEM standards. Two bad it's speaker level I bet, unlike the Civic's OEM balanced line level outs.
NVX amps should be hitting my door today so I'm feeling itchy to tear-down and wire something.
Hope your Clarity speaker venture is going well and all the best!
