Owned a shop for a few years. They make component plate sets that separate the woofer and tweeter for the 6x8 I believe infinity makes one. The 5.25 complete sets are easier to come by. Again separates the woofer and tweeter.
They will come with crossover boxes that can be hidden easily. Again I’m a big fan of infinity.
Once that’s installed I recommend anp… you’ll never get the sound you really want or that decent aftermarket speakers are capable of without an amp.
Amps these days are smaller than they used up be. A small 4 channel or even a 2 ch would be fine… 2 ch will give you stereo balance but you’ll loose front to back fade which probably doesn’t matter on a car that small.
I had the top tier burmester in my porsche and it was actually pretty great (and I didn’t want to mess up the car lol) (although that’s now been sold for the studio lol). In my other car though I do have a full jl audio setup that’s pretty sweet
Yeah I was thinking the same size wise. The rears are basically against my head.
I was hoping to piggy back of the first brand name to pop out from here. The Kappa 5" component set does look nice.
Really looking for minimal effort, maximum return. This is 30-45 minute car journey a day that I am trying to liven up a bit. Not keen on spending crazy money on this car as I’ve two others that I intend to go batshit on in the future.
On a speaker change video someone changed JBL GX862 in there. Door panel still should have a tweeter place… wondering is there oval shaped 2-way speaker (woofer/midrange) with separate tweeter.
Like 2-way 6.5" usually have.
That’s very useful indeed, thank you. I’ll probably have to use their website as reference point only. Importing from the states to Ireland kills the prices.
I miss having a good old car shops with people that care. Went to one in my area (when I was looking at going full system) and from the offset I could see this guy was into the best deal for him and not would sound well in the car.
