Just wondering , I have two new sets of speakers & will be installing one pair in the door of my Mustang.
Both are 6 1/2 inch in size, but one pair is three ways & the other are four ways.
The magnets on both pair are 10 ounce each.
My question is , is there a big difference in sound quality between three way vs. four ways ?

anything over 2-ways is just a scam and makes no difference.

Usually a good 2 way co-axil will be better built then a 3, 4, or even 5 way. It really just a marketing scheme. Listen to both and decide which ones you like better. If you get money later on try and upgrade to a componet set and small amp to push them.

Ya if your buying a co-axil dont bother goin higher then 2-way. If its component a good 3-way can be better then a 2-way.

Then again, a good 2-way coaxial can be better than even a 3-way component setup.

what equipment is this, exactly?

2-way vs. 3-way vs 4-way doesn't mean jack if we're comparing pyramids to diamonds

Thanks for the info, I took my car to my friends shop to have the speakers installed & we ran into a problem.
The new speakers kept grounding out on the metal door frame , so he had some Alpine 3 ways , that he installed that fitted & works great.
He has been doing my car audio work for over 18 years & I send him customers often.
He sold the new Alpines to me for thirty dollars, brand new.
He said they were a model of Alpines that were discontiued earlier this year, but they sound great !
I took the other speaker back & got a full refund.
Thanks for everyone help, you guys know a lot !:)
