View Full Version : best plug n play comps?
12-12-2005, 11:45 AM
alright so i got some cheap kenwood components a couple months ago, while im saving for some better ones. they arent' half bad, but they have exaclty ZERO midbass. anywho, im looking for a pair of comps that sound great and that are not reliant to much on install and sound deadening. any ideas? thanks!

Reason why you want to put decent speakers in a half assed install?

Leased vehicle maybe?
I can't mod anything in my car either, I have make everything super discreet. So I am intrested in the reponses to this post.

looking for a 2- way set. priced to about 1k.
well i dont mind having a good install but i mean, i dont want to deaden anything for weight purposes. since i do track my car occasionally. but im looking for the best speakers i can get without having to dead anything.

also i do not plan to keep this car as my daily driver for to much longer, so taht's why i just want to get the system i want so when i do get a new car i wont have to buy anything new other than a good install.

a single layer of deadener on the doors isnt hardly any weight . Also as far as comps best two way set I've heard is prolly either Zapco's or Dynaudio's .

wouldnt worry to much about the weight, i track my 93 rx7 everyonce in awhile, and put 2 layers of deadener in each door. Gave alot more bass to, not to bad for a car pushing 440 rwhp at 2800 lbs at 15 psi by 3500rpm :)

haha yea 2800 lbs aint no joke..but i got an evo and that beast is about 3500lbs..big difference...

evo 8, any mods

Well for the speakers i'd suggest some HD-63 braxial mounts. Components but the tweet is mounted on a custom grill right above the woofer. Very nice sounding and good midbass response. As for the Evo, they're definitely heavy but a few little mods in the engine and you'll be good. And dynamat doesn't add too much weight but combine that with a box and you could be like me having 150lbs extra added into the car.

I'd avoid the CDT's.
Image Dynamics Chameleons, Boston Acoustics Pro and Z series and Memphis Syncs all have the same ability to "co-axially mount", and sound better than the CDT's.
If co-axial mounting isn't a concern of yours, also look into DLS, Seas Lotus, OZ Audio and Rainbow.

well i would like to have components like the ones i have now. i have my woofer in the doors and tweets in the a pillar. i might end up going with seas lotus..havent heard a bad thing yet from them.
anyone know of a good spray on deadener..or paint? i might as well just use that on the inside of the doors..they might be lighter than the dynamat.

I'd look into Dls definetly, and if cash isn't an issue, Dynaudios kick major ***.
