Best EQ settings for SWS8's?

What is the best way to creatively EQ SWS's? I recently replaced my Rainbow SLC's in the doors with Profi's and had my Zapco DC360.4 repaired and updated with new firmware. So I'm sort of starting from scratch with the tuning of the car.

I spent some time yesterday working on getting the EQ right but I'm struggling. The only way I can get the SWS to sound decent is to drop the x'overs to 80 hz. I have the doors set at 100 though... so that leaves a big hole.

I'm curious how others are EQ'ing w/ SWS's.

Thanks!

What did you think of the swap from SLC to Profi?

I really like them a lot. I actually only changed the woofers, not the tweeters, but you can hear a difference. They sound a bit more open to me than the SLC's did.

Go with what sounds good! BTW LP at 80 and HP at 100 is NOT a big hole. With 12 db slopes, I would say no hole at all.

SWS-8 sounds Okish b/w 80-100Hz.
I would leave you LPF on 100Hz for SWS-8s.
