View Full Version : Front Door Speaker Type Selection

07-28-2009, 07:41 PM
Here is the issue:
My front door has a factory 3-way speaker system installed. I have done some research and found what should fit in the doors with little modification.

Each door can fit:
1 - tweet
1 - 3.5" to 4" speaker
1 - 8" midbass or woofer

I'm thinking I have two good options

Option 1
Install a 2-way 3.5" or 4" component set and an 8" midbass driver

Option 2
Install a 3-way 6.5" component set.

I am looking for excellent SQ. I am currently looking at Focal, MB Quart, JL Audio, Memphis, etc

Any help on which option to go for?
Any other option I missed?
Any picks on which brand/model to pick for this setup?

What car is this for?
What is the rest of the system?
When you say SQ, what level of sound quality do you have in mind?

Currently putting together a build.

Car: '09 Jetta
HU: Kenwood 9140
Front: that is the question for this post
Rear: factory has 6.5 or 5.25 components installed. will replace those for either a
component set or coaxials. whichever is better for my needs and SQ
Sub: don't know yet. opinions are welcome on this. see SQ note below.
SQ: looking for clarity. listen to mostly rock, metal, hard rock, classic rock, southern
rock, grunge, etc. not really into low bass (rap). like hard hitting clear bass.
Amp: looking into Memphis, Alpine, Sundown, JL, Focal

what you want is the Hybrid audio http://www.12velectronics.com/servlet/the-94/HAT-Hybrid-Audio-Technologies/Detail

Thanks, that set looks awesome.

I am guessing I will have to run active for this component set, correct?

If so, any recommendations on crossovers. I still would like to install the kenwood 9140 HU.
