    Which drivers are you looking at? The Dayton RSSHO and RSSHO-DVC are popular, as were the Ultimax for a while. I have an HO-DVC that was going in my wife's care but haven't had time to make that happen. From what I've gleaned from the inter-webs, they do great, sound great, but don't like extreme heat (most drivers don't, either, but the adhesive used on some of the RSS drivers seems to be a little more susceptible to extremes. Also, they can be a little power hungry. Else, I've heard lots of praise for them in autosound applications.

    The Dayton MaxX series of drivers seem to be geared a little more towards car audio. I would love to try one out. Still may..

      Consider using In Ear Monitors (IEMs, aka ear buds). Be sure to look at what is offered at DROP (was called Massdrop).

          I can't speak for every US state, but any sort of in-ear or headphones is illegal to wear when driving in IL.

          I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.

            And if it isn't illegal, it should be!
