Nice write up on that imprint, it makes a lot of sense. And as far as the Eclipse go, Im going another route but I take your word they are a nice set of speakers. Im back to some Focal or Hertz 6.5" mounted in the front. Im going to custom mount the tweet like you did in the top of the door panel just because as far as Ive hard and can tell thats best for the sake of imaging. I like the way the sound comes off the windshield from the fronts but the 3.5" speaker isnt going to give me what I want. Id just much rather have some comps, all in all haven't heard anything that sounds better than the Hertz 6.5 comps I heard in a guys Ford Harley Edition getting about 100 watts RMS but I'm sure pushing 80 to them (CES rated, its JL so no jokers as far as amps go) will do the job. All I know is my 6x9 coaxs from Infinity are crap as far as sound goes and the 3.5" in the dash are the only reason I can hear any of the vocals/highs in all the music I listen to haha.
Anyway I end up the dyna-mat and comps upgrade is going to be huge! I also wanted to do the big 3 upgrade but Im not sure if its worth it. Someone did a nice write-up but at the end of the day the wires are already like 4-6 gauge under the hood so I haven't and shouldnt have any issues as far as that goes.
The combo between deadening my doors and getting some properly tuned components from a reputable company should make the difference Im looking for. You setup as far as SQ goes Im sure is unbeatable within your price range. The install looked top notch and all new wires to the doors was probably nice haha. Wish I could do it all but Ive done my "system" and dont need to throw any more $ (besides new 6.5"s) at it haha.
Maybe an EQ down the road but well see
