but the exlusive series dont hav a 4" midrange they hav a 4" woofer wich has alot less sensitivity(and is used as a woofer), or would it be better to use scan-speak speakers, is the money actually worth there porformance ??

is 4 way alot better or a waste of money, is 3 way better to use?

What will you use for a crossover?

I think the XT19 would be stellar or another Vifa tweeter that you can find reviews on from www.zaphaudio.com or www.diymobileaudio.com

If you got the cash get the new AirCirc 6600 tweeter.

I think the Scan-speak 4.5" or 5.5" midrange driver would be an awesome midrange speaker. If those are too expensive definitely go for the Exclusive.

For midbass, a lot of people have been liking the Peerless 830491 XLS 8" driver in their doors. I have four for home use but have yet to install them yet. I have read from a member on this forum that they are "dogs" (terrible drivers) but they measured great on www.diymobileaudio.com and people seem to be enjoying them so far.

I have a DIY 4-way and after having it tuned I am very happy. Many people are very successful with 3-ways whether they use a 7" driver for midbass/bass or 7" for midrange and a subwoofer for bass. It is all about the install and if you are serious about audiophile sound I say go for the 4-way.
