Re: 2 ways or 3 ways? Is there really that much difference?
There is a big difference between 2 and 3way, but not much between 3 and 4 way unless you have your ears trained.
Two way deliver basically mid-range and bass and a little bit of treble. 3 way deliver all 3 at once, bass, mid and treble and you can easily distinguish between them all. Just go to an auto/audoi store and stick your head on there sound board. You will notice the difference. But after saying that, Fosgate (as an example) their 2 way speakers are bloody good, and you can hear pretty much the full audio range with these. Pioneer have the new 5-way TSA-6990s series now and Kenwood still have their 7x10 range of 4-ways at very good prices. To summarise, use 2 way for rear speakers...and 3 way for front so you get that 'staging' thing happening.
Nothing beats the sound of a V8
