Hello fellas haven't been on for long time. Glad i remembered my password. well mayb you can help. i just picked up an mr2 and the clarion speakers are terrible. sadly the car only has 2 speakers (on the dash) and they so happen to be 4 inches (yay..). so ive been lookin all over for reviews and opinions.. Im running a Kenwood excelon Kdc-x493 deck and will run the speakers on it, unless i use my 4 chan alpine amp if think they need more juice.. I have 100 dollar limit.. so far i chose these.. what do u think ? Lookin best bang for buck on my lil lil audio install..

use the four channel but bridge each speaker to 2 channels that should be about 100 watts depending on the model... Amp power is very superior to HU power. No advice on 4"ers though.

Look on Woofersetc.com they have the old German made premuim PKC110 with the huge musicomp x overs for like $99 bucks. The older MB's will kill the new MB's on sound quality.

Wow...after I opened this post I though I had started it and forgot I had, I have the exact same question.
I'm sort of in the same boat
MB Quart
Focal
Diamond Audio
other???
Who's listened to these?

Diamond audio is about half to a third the price of the Focal and MB Quart.
The MB Quart has a few models of 4" speakers...to bad there website ***** and it hard to navigate...and there pdf names don't line up with the model names...
I'm off to look at what type of backing can be put in the dash to help those speakers preform better.
Thanks for the feed back everyone.

You could always do a little customizing and get a nice component set installed. Also PM sent.

This guys got an idea, maybe some PVC pipe some fiber glass and some sound deadening material combination would do the trick. Of course dashes are a pain to work with.

Bump

So any ideas
If you had 150 ish to spend on a pair of 4inch speakers what would you get?
