Hi, I am looking for expensive 6.5'' or 7'' component system that take advantage of clean power. The amp is rated 400x4 @ 4 Ohm

Right now I have morel elate 6.5'' components in front and JL xr525-sci for the rear fill. I recently bought this amp and feel like I need to upgrade my speakers because they overheat a lot :eek: I touched one tweeter and burned my finger :laugh:

Do they not get loud enough for you, so you feel you need to run that much power?

It gets got loud enough with 25W inside of the car, but sometimes we go out with my friends and prostitutes into forest for wicking style barbecue. :yumyum: So sometimes I listen to music outside.

I'd look into having a shop custom fabricate a set of horns into your dash...a pair of Image Dynamics full-body horns plus a pair of 8" midbasses should be loud enough for you :) But they'll likely need EQing, and will use nowhere near the amount of power you have available :D

400W to a set of horns would be audible for miles...

So, you are basally telling me that it is going to be pain in the *** to upgrade the speakers? :confused:

From now on please know that the wilderness is the BEST place to hang out!!!!!! Because society is not watching you :)

I'm telling you that you're not likely going to find dome tweeters that satisfy what you're looking for. Morels have some of the highest power ratings of any domed tweet out there, if they aren't loud enough for you then I'd recommend going with horns.

Also, if you drive what it's your avatar and have a Mac amp like that, I seriously doubt you'll have a problem paying for a set of horns underneath your dash :)

These will allow you to use everything that your amp can do...

The horn suggestion is interesting. I am thinking about fabrication custom door panels and putting 9’’ PG ti elite midranges high-pass crossed @ 40Hz and then I can add a set of horns crossed @ 3 kHz to drive them off of the rear channels of my amp.

Unless you already have the PG's, I'd look into other drivers...

yes, I have them right now. I don't know much about hors, though. What model of horns suit my setup? :confused:

JimJ

Image Dynamics makes a few models, I'd check out their site for info.

Illusion Audio also made horns in the past, although they're out of business now IIRC.

Hey, what is wrong with those PG drivers? I thought they were better than morels? The box says hand-made in Israel.

If they're hand-made in Israel...probably are Morels :D

Got a ride like that in your avatar and a MAC then nothing is out of your price limit. ID horns FTW. Where did you get the PG's does it say made in Israel on the box. Not tracking any PG made there. Morels agree.

Another trailer park thought is mabey a pair of 6x9 boxes with a good pair of 6x9's with a quick disonnect mounted somewhere you could plug in and place outside. Like plug and go. I know sounds wierd but would work great.IMO

Alright, I am just going to buy a pair of 6x9 and put them in boxes with very long wires so that I can take them outside when I need it. :toast:

Are there any durable 6x9s that won’t die very quickly and get decently loud? I did a little research, that JBL t595 decade-edition looks pretty amazing:

Are there better speakers in this price range?

for $750 ill build and ship to you a custom boombox that will run for 3 hours on batteries and have great sq and be loud.trying to get music from inside your car to a bbq is just wrong, especially when its 'that' amp.

get some good speakers, real home audio speakers, not 6x9 in a box. youll need a switch or 2 to turn off the car speakers and divert the amps signal to the bbq speakers but it can be done and is the right way to do this.

Thanks, but I don’t have a lot of extra space and money to spend right now. I owe $15k to my land lord and about $20k to 5 different people. I have only $10k in my account and am running to LA in a couple of weeks to hide for a few years there. Most likely I will stay in a hotel for a short time, so I don’t really have a lot of place to carry all that stuff with me. That is why don’t have subs and traded a ****-load of my audio equipment amp for that one McIntosh. :laugh:

The 6x9 deal will work but like some said its almost a disgrace to do with that amp. Thats why I listed it as trailer park thought.LOL
