View Full Version : New front door speaker suggestions.
11-13-2005, 06:30 PM
Hey I am looking to get some new front door speakers because the right speaker is blown so I figured now would be the perfect time to get better speakers. I really want the speakers to have insane sound quality over everything else. I am really into rock and heavy metal but I listen to alot of drumcorp music in my car as well. I dont care if they are used or not as long as they are still in good condition and I dont want to spend to much maybe no more than 250-300. Thanks, Chief

Just talked to my parentals and told them about the blown speaker so I thnk they are going to pay for the front speakers. So if they are under 200 that would be awesome. And I want a pair that I can just power by my hu until I get the money for a small amp. Thanks, Chief

Somebody told me that it is better to have 6.5's in the front and not 5.25's is this true? What about MB quart do they make good sq components? JL audio?

big the speaker the better the mid bass response.

So what if I did the 5.25's in the front and 6.5's in the back? How would that sound? The 6.5's come with tweeters where would I put those and do the 5.25's come with tweeters?

imo i would just do a 6.5" comp set up front with an amp, much more valuable to your system than back speakers. where are u sitting? that's where u want the noise (besides bass which is non directional). you could mount the tweets on the a-pillar or on the dash.

Image Dynamics CSX-64 Chameleon are awesome for heavy metal and drum n bass and that kinda stuff.

Type-R components dang it :D Mine are running off the HU now, but I'm told they need to be fully powered to be appreciated. FinestDeals or something on Ebay could probably get you under $200. High's are awesome! Lows are very impressive for them to be just 5x7's! I'm suprised by how well the mid bass and highs are covered by these components.
I was told your tweeter should be mounted close as possible to your woofer for maximum imaging. I went with side view mirror level though.
CDA-9853 (Slide Bar HU)
SPR-57LS (60 W RMS 5x7 Components)
SPS-570A (40 W RMS 5X7 2-way)
MRP-M350 (350 W RMS Mono @ 2 ohm)
SWR-1241D (Dual 4 ohm)

I PM'd ya with some info. As for brands I think you'd be fairly happy with just about anything aftermarket of decent quality. I would avoid Infinity for corps musicc because the highs are REALLY harsh and the cymbal crashes can kill you if you have it cranked up heh. I dont know what your car has for sizes on factory speakers but I would put the 6.5" up front for sure, IF they fit that is. If your on a budget and low power look into these sets for fronts:
And if you want to just replace the factory fronts with another set of good 5.25's these sound very good in my second car for DCI stuff, as a bonus they dont require much power to sound clean:
If you really want rears I'd recommend something simple like a 2-way 6.5" or 5x7". Hope all that helps.

Get some Dls UP6's from Tplaya07, they are unbelievable, and the small magnet will help you a bunch putting them in a WRX. I just put some Diamond Hexes in my brother's WRX and they were really deep, and I had clearance issues with the window regulator. Also, do yourself a favor and sound deaden the door too, they rattle a bunch. Up6's are around $300- some of the best speakers I have ever heard regardless of price.
