View Full Version : Speaker sizes/compatibility

03-23-2008, 07:05 PM
I have a truck which currently has 4x6 speakers in the front and back. I was wondering if it would be okay to rig up a pair of Cerwin Vega V Max 5's in the front in the doors, and then a pair of 4x6 speakers in the rear in the places where the old speakers were (still haven't decided which ones yet).

The problem I've noticed are the wattage ratings. The Cerwins are rated for 100W RMS/200W max, but the quality 4x6 speakers are not rated nearly that high. Will this cause any issues if I set it up this way?

if you do it, amp the front and run the rear off the hu...it will sound good

I'd rather run everything off the same amp for equal quality and volume.. Is there anything else I can do?

if you want sound quality, then the rear channel is fill and should be off unless you have a passenger in the back....rear off the hu is the best option with what you have
