well my bro, got an 85 mustang, and the 6x9's for the car (factory) are located in the very rear of the hatch. bad place. whenever he turns up the bassm cant hear any sound. no front door speakers and he doesnt want to go thru the trouble of customizing. however they have 3.5 up on the dash. crappy paper cones. now he wants as much power as he can get without paying TOO much! i mean reasonable priced. also, he'll want then to be amped coz thats the only treble going to his ears. i found these online, but maybe pricey. any other strong and reliable 3.5's ??

he's not going to need the 3.5's amped if his back speaks are factory 6x9's. He'll think all his bass left lol.

Those look pretty good. Don't expect too much out of a 3.5" coaxial though. I doubt you will need to amplify them.

you mean it would get that loud? his 6x9 are so old, same as the car i think, and he cant even hear them when the music is on! so he wants some front sound at least. you think they dont need to be amped? is there a reason? wouldnt it be better?

thx

trebles don't need as much power as bass. he should be fine off the headunit.

yea i had some infinites in my dash at one point, and it got loud enough off my hu to keep up with the bass, but there was ZERO midrange, an entire frequency range was missing.

If you take the door panel off there should be a factory cut out that will fit a 6.5' speaker, you could easily modify the panel to install a set. My cousin had an 89 mustang and we disconnected his 3.5s and installed a pair of Alpine 5.25s in his doors, the panel had an existing grill so no cutting was nessesary.
