View Full Version : Best 3 1 /2"
04-13-2007, 04:40 PM
I'm looking for good 3 1/2's for under $100 and so far I've come up with the Rockford powers, jl audio, and infinity kappas. Which one should I get out of the 3 unless someone else has a better speaker?

what are you looking for? harsh? mellow? bright?

Parts Express and Madisound stocks them, I can't think of too many other 3.5's that do anything without some pretty complicated enclosures...

I just want the best SQ I can get. I'm going with RF power 6x9s in the back because thats the best I can fit back there so I just want a great set of 3 1/2's
Having a set of 6x9's in back and 3.5's in front are going to make a really distorted soundstage, unless you have the rears basically attenuated down to nothing...

well I don't want to hack my car up putting a top of the line sound system. Obviously I don't have all the stuff I want like Fi's or Re's in my trunk. I just want it to sound good for what I have to work with.
These 3.5's are in the dash?
You could build (or have someone build for you) a set of fiberglassed kickpods, that way you could get a 6.5" or 7" midbass easily, a large format tweeter up on the dash and have a heck of a soundstage...wouldn't require any cutting, and would be completely removable.

Yes they're in the dash. And kick panels would be nice, but I'm not sure if I want to go that far in this car.
