Active? :) [skool me]

come on you have 800 posts...you should be wiser than my puney 610 posts.

i cant define active to a technical level(granted i just figured out what active is i think :rolleyes: )

I believe it means you get a 4 channel amp and you run 2 channels to your mids at certain levels and frequencies and on the other 2 you hook the tweets there and set the gains and frequencies properly.

Plz someone do correct me if necessary

08-14-2006, 09:29 PM

Save up some more money and buy some decent equipment, instead of wasit it on cheap crap(visonick)

why are you linking to the pioneer rev components? i think you just want coaxials (ease of install, cheaper, easier to power, easier to setup):

if you read the post i originally linked to you'd have seen that i had the infinity references you linked to. they have pretty harsh highs, somewhat weak midrange, and i blew one in a couple months of use. now i have the pioneer rev's and i'm MUCH happier. they'll definitely be under $100 shipped, and it's totally worth it.

Pionneer speakers will do you good off your HU, im also fond of Kicker Speakers for some reason. They can be had for cheap and sound nice. I have a pair of componnets that i absolutely love.

There coaxials, which can be heard at circuit city are not bad, i found there 6x9's sound better than the Pioneer 6x9's i had in my car.

ALSO, you dont have to buy your speakers off crutchfield, you can find them cheaper at onlinecarstereo.com, or even ebay. I bought mine for 80 shipped, brand new, lasted me 1 1/2 years. STILL great, just took them out because i dont need them.

i'd get pioneer rev's or kicker ks's and a cheap two channel amp. ditch the rear fill.

if you take the stock accord baffle and cut out the back it'll work as a spacer and you can fit some fairly deep speakers back there.

i suggest going to BB or CC or a car audio shop and listening to some reasonably priced coaxials and seeing what you like. i think you'll be impressed with the pioneer rev's compared to other stuff at BB/CC, and then disregard their $170 price and get them online for $75 brand new!

for under $100 I'd probably stick to coaxials. you'll probably have to spend at least twice as much to get decent sounding components, and you'll have to take the time to install them right to make it worth it.

yeah, if you're running of HU power, just don't crank it all the way up or it WILL clip.

i'd still have to recommend the Pioneer REV TS-D161R as the best coaxial for under $100 shipped. They totally blew me away, much better than anything else you'd see at Best Buy/Circuit City.

:eyebrow: I thought I knew what was going on.... apparantly I should go back and read the thread...

I read the thread and ya rly...

They'd sound a **** load better off a decent external amp, butthe shouldn't sound "dirty" just because you're using a headunit.

Would I do it, no... but that's a whole different story.

i'd also get an amp for the front stage when you get your new HU. the profile should is enough power for the rev's and it's cheap!

and, those free tweeters are trash, and since the revs are coaxials (tweeters included) there is absolutely no need for seperate ones. it would just be tons of work for possibly a slightly better soundstage (but probably would end up looking and sounding crappy, and taking lots of work).

You I ahve a 1995 Honda accord EX sedan and I was gonna buy the Pioneer TS-D161R 2 way speakers but it says they dont fit in there
You Becasue I measured the stock speaker and it was veery close to 6.6"
You 6.5 my bad
Eddie. They stick up too high to mount under the factory grill.
You Sooo..... is there a way to get them to ft in there
You not scared if cuting a thing or 2
Eddie. You might be able to trim the inside of the grill.
You which one?
You one on the car door?
Eddie. The factory grill.
You Im not planning on using the "grille" cover thing on the speaker
You oooh I see
u can take that off tho right?
Eddie. I'm talking about the factory grill.
You the one on the door...
Eddie. Yes.
You hmmm
You is it the tweeter the one that sticks out?

08-22-2006, 06:39 AM
well, i have a 99 accord and they definitely don't fit in the stock speacker baffle, but i cut the back out of the baffle, and it now acts as a ~1/2" spacer. i have the speakers mounted to the door via this spacer, and i also have the pioneer grills on under the stock grills (for no aparent reason, you can't see them at all), and they fit fine. n

ot sure if thats the same as yours, but in my car they fit fine. and if you own a dremel it seems that it should not be a problem to make them fit.

have you opened up your door yet? i think you can just cut (or remove) the rear speaker baffle, and it will fit fine. unless older accords have a lot closer grills you should have no problems in front of the speaker.

I have opened it its kinda close. AS for the rear speakers i I cut the plastic cover to make them fit with a dremel. Pretty easy. If i removed them it would look soo ghetto... I'll show u. Leme find a pic

well, i decided it wasn't worth ripping my dash apart. luckily i'm using an external amp so i had to run new speaker wire anyways.

if you're not doing a seperate amp, i'd just unhook the speaker wire at the HU and then do short runs to each speaker. then you know the tweeters are disconnected, and getting the wire that short of a distance (while keeping it hidden) shouldn't be hard at all (much easier than ripping up the dash).

Makes sense... but.... how is the stock tweets running? Active or something?

yep, speakers look about like mine (except mine actually made by pioneer), and my tweets in the same location.

as for the plastic thing, you ARE going to have to either cut out the back or not use it at all. i'd just cut out the back if you don't have enough clearance behind the speaker, or remove it if you don't have enoug clearace in front of the speaker. i think you should have plenty of room in either direction, though.

U can screw the speaker into place without the plasric thing??? I didnt try taking it off, so i dont know. But I wouldt think Honda made holes lined up for the speaker in the metal door.... :rolleyes:

you can screw into sheet metal, but there's no holes predrilled. just mark the spots you want holes with a pen, and pre-drill some small holes, and then screw the speaker on (make sure you weather seal around the edge).

WOW... huge diference in sound quality. ;) Happy camper... plus way clearer and sharp at higher volumes... :) Its all offf the HU. When I get an amp, even better

glad you like them.

a roll of rubber, self, stick weather seal (<$5) should help increase bass response.

They already sound real good, but I will re-do some things later during the week or during the weekend. IM ****IN STOKED MAN!! Nice speakers. All I had to do was cut the plastic speaker baffle in the back. Easy cake.

i knew it would be easy (and sound good)!

i have some angled speaker rings that i need to find time to put in (to hopefully raise the soundstage a bit), but they already sound great.

yeah, if you wire them up in parallel, but then you don't get front/back seperation (and you're soundstage will get pulled behind you), and it'll only do 50W to each one.

but who needs rear fill anyways?

i guess if don't like listening to music how it was meant to be heard (stereo, ear level, good seperation, in front of you). i guess none of that usually applies to car audio anyways :)

2 speakers is enough for me, though. i hate when is sounds like they're singing behind you.

I need the same thing this guy does which is a good set of Coax's off of HU power. Looking for something with a smooth tweet like a Silk and some thump. Do these Pioneers get harsh on the highs? Any other suggestions in the < $150 range?

xluben
09-11-2006, 06:35 PM
pioneers are not harsh and will sound good of hu power and only cost $75.95+shipping:

if you're going to spend up to $150 you may be able to do a bit better, though.

If something will play a little better and not sound harsh then I am willing to give more. Don't know what are good Coaxs! Is that Pioneers top of the line?

That's what I have if you look at the sig. Crutch is way off! I am having M-6's that are 6.75" x 3" put in the doors and they say it can't be done. I also have 6x9's that are 3.5" depth in place now which it appears they say can't fit. Measure or buy from someone that has a good return policy.


What are you trying to fit BTW??

I'm trying to fit the Pioneer REVs 6.5" into my front doors. I talked to the customer service guy and he said I have to drill new holes and use a mounting bracket to make them fit. Is this accurate?

Intercooler
09-19-2006, 10:56 PM
That sounds right. My 5.25's in the doors now we gutted the speaker out and used its flange to mount these. For the 6.5's I am having put in it will be a wood ring or adapter plate. I think on some of it Crutchfield's install specs are to leave everything untouched totally. I do know on my Daughter's Cavalier they say around a 3" 6x9 in the rear but I went out and looked and it has zero cross bars in the way so I could go to the spare tire level about 20" with one so take their specs with a grain of salt.
