3 days before the posted arrival day!






I had ordered the REV series components, but they didn't have any, slight downgrade to this model, but it's gonna be a HUGE upgrade to what I have...
Pioneer 6.5" 3-ways =(
I even have most of the weekend to install them!!

10-24-2008, 09:44 PM
I like the cones

10-24-2008, 09:52 PM
I hope you didn't pay too much for that.

10-24-2008, 10:43 PM
After adding in all the things I forgot about (Exchange rate, border tax, blah blah) I think it came out to... $220 ish... for a $140 set of speakers lol

10-24-2008, 10:51 PM
Ouch. Well, here's hoping they sound good.

10-24-2008, 10:53 PM
They will, when I track down a Crossfire 4ch amp to power them up!! I only have mono blocks atm =(

I don't think component speakers would like 800wrms from a mono block, under 250hz

IMHO those Pioneers are just average sounding comps. You should have gotten the Premer 720PRS set.

or gotten Mark to send him some comps.

After all, they are in the same country.

You do realize, that these were $140, and the PRS series is over $300 right...

I can get them cheaper than 300. I used the mids from his set for a little while.

The D-series comps are nice for the price. I call em a good buy :D

10-26-2008, 11:46 AM
yeah canada ***** and getting ANYTHING UPSed from the states ***** even more. i need some repair parts from my soldering iron wich i can only get from the states. usaualy i get them sent to the boarder and pick up my self, but i didnt think brokerage on $40 worth of soldering iron parts would be much. it was $35, i coulda driven down to the boarder for that price.

i dont know whare in AB you are, but you should look into driving down to the boarder to pic **** up from the US

10-26-2008, 02:26 PM
About 14 hours of solid driving =(

Well, that kindof rules out driving to the border, lol.

He could fly down...

i wish dhl would deliver my package a day or two earlier. been waiting over a week for a shiva-x subwoofer. booo :(

the speakaz look good though. good luck.

10-26-2008, 10:06 PM
Well the twins are in!

I did it as fast as humanly possible, no pictures...
Stock holes for the mid's, didn't fit with the stock rings though, and had to make some "custom" holes for the Premier brackets...

Surface mounted the tweets on the doors, about shoulder high, aimed in a criss-cross (Driver aimed at passenger, passenger at driver)

There's absolutely pretty much definately NO midbass to speak of, but those tweets are clear as a bell even off a cheap-o JVC deck power. (Keep in mind, I have ZERO sound deadening in the car atm, so unless that makes a WORLD of difference, I'm dissapointed in the mids)

I think these will really light up when I get some sound deadening / better HU to run at least partially active with 'em.

10-26-2008, 10:27 PM
deaden and seal off your doors, also get an amp on them. you need real power, not HU power.

10-27-2008, 02:00 PM
If you can find me some RAAMat or Dynamat extreme for cheap I'll deaden them this weekend =P Still trying to pick up my 2nd amp, so looks like deadening is gonna be next year (Stupid trade school). Never mind a 2/4 channel for the speakers. Even off deck power the tweets sound awesome, and keep up with the subs MUCH better than the 5 1/4 coax's that were in the doors before =P

Run about 100w to them each.
