SAE-50/SAX-200.4 for sound stage?

Recommended Posts

I'm upgrading my sound stage and wanted to ask if the power seems right for what my plan is

4 Crescendo F1 (4ohm) Super tweeters on the SAE-50.4 all wired down to 2 ohms

2 10" CT speakers, 4 CT Meso 6.5"(2 in kick/2 in the doors) and 2 CT meso 5.25's to be powered off the SAX-200.4?

if there's any other speakers for suggestions I'm all open ears to them, haven't pulled the credit card trigger yet.

Lot of power for super tweets.  may only want 2 instead of 4.  I would not run them at 2 ohms either (4-8 instead).  Just me......

Or should I just go with 2 SAX 125.4's one for highs and one for mids leaving me plenty of headroom

Makes sense, I just figured they're 80rms each and the amp puts out 50 @4 and 75 @2

The thought of four super tweets makes my ears hurt. I wouldn't want to sit next to them. People do it sure but I would do four soft dome tweets.

Just hooked up the 2 that I just got and well ummm....you guys are right, 2 is PLENTY. I'm most definetely not going to fire these guys at me, they're so loud I'm just going to face them on-axis from each one another on my A pillars

I dont think you'd need a 4ch tweeter amp with only 4 tweeters. If you went two pair of 4ohm tweets per channel (each pair wired together in parallel, so only 2 channels being used), you could wire the channels down to 2 ohm each. But then you'd have two more channels unused in that config with the 4ch amp. 

If you need a tweeter amp just get a small 2ch amp. Most tweets are 4ohm or higher, so just wire each set in parallel (left and right). 

How were you planning to wire all those mids to the 4ch?

Was looking them up and they're more efficient supposedly when they're wired at 4/8 ohms depending on which ones you get, I'm going to keep them at 4. I think I'm going to get a few components so I'll have 2-4 small soft tweeters. For the mids I was just planning on stacking(series?) the wiring for each channel. Let's just say for example each one is 50w and I have 4 of them on an amp that puts out 200w per channel. Am I going about this the right way? I'll be checking everything with an ohm calculator before I go buy a handful of speakers to make sure it'll be done right and dmm right before I wire it all up. Aiming for a mix between spl/sq, maybe meso 5.25's for a rear fill and crescendos up front. What would be your suggestion for going about all of this?

It depends on what frequencies youre sending to each speaker. You can either use the amp's crossovers or setup external passive crossovers to split the frequencies to each speaker appropriately. Or use a DSP. Although, I dont see the point in sending the same frequency bands to two different speaker sizes.
