View Full Version : Some decent 5.25" speakers..

12-05-2007, 06:26 PM
I'm just looking for some decent 5.25" speakers... I want to add some tweeters and mid-bass speakers to the front door, but I have no clue how to get the panel off, and what I would be getting myself into in making some basic mounts...

They will be getting roughly 45w each. I might be able to do more, but it is a Sony amp... I'm thinking realistically I will get ~45wx4 @4ohm... It's a 600w max Xplod amp..

Nice amp ;)

I know! lol... Gotta get some scrwes for the wire terminals... They are an odd size..

(BTW I see what you meant about the packaging.)

Hmmm... I would LIKE to order from parts express... But they hardly have any 5.25's... They just have a really really good deal on carpet...
Anyways, here is what I found there...

The obvious differences is that one is 2 way while the other is 3 way... Not sure about the quality of either though...

Anyone? Also should I put some sort of sound deadening behind it? How does the spray on stuff work?

Try Madisound, they have several 5.25" speakers.

(Just be sure and get 4ohm)

You're obviously not wanting to spend too much, but you do have options for Components if you would rather have the separates. Hifonics, are a cheap, reliable brand. I had the set listed below, but I wanted to try out Hypnotic speakers, and I got mine at a steal so I grabbed them, and sold the Hifonics. With your Sony amp, you could run a simple 2 way active setup, if you'd want the amp dedicated to the front stage.

Ok.. What exactly do the crossovers do for me? Also for the tweeters.. Do they get their own channel? Like are the hooked up the same a "normal" speaker.. I mean I could run a third amp, so I have 6ch...

Well, I think I am going to be getting those HiFonics speakers. They are 45$ shipped for just the 2 5.25's...

Anyways, is there any reason I would want to buy the component set over just the 2 speakers? I'm thinking about ordering tonight.
