I blew every tweeter in my van recently when i upgraded to the ppi amps. so i have been looking for some cheap speakers to hold me over till i have some cash to get decent ****.

well while i was trolling the junk yard i found a minivan with 4 brand new condition infinity reference 6802cf's. i picked them up for 6 bucks each. i used a dremel to open the 6.5" holes under my dashpad to fit them in the dash and mounted the other pair in my doors. i have them powered with a ppi pc275 with the gain set at 1/4 with the attenuator turned off. treble on +1 @15khz and these things sound way better compared to my old type-s alpines. Most songs i am able to go full volume with no audible distortion at all.

but my question is do you think these 4 speakers will be safe on that ppi? it fried my type-s set.

i road about a 20 minute trip earlier and played some five finger death punch and slayer at full volume the whole trip and they stood up pretty nice.

well i've been chancing it cuz i cant resist spinning that knob. its been awhile since i actually had a system that i could enjoy rock and metal on. my old highs were very screechy in the upper mid section which made metal sound like pure ****. now i can enjoy my metal again. :clap:

hopefully they will hold up...i have had problems with infinity speakers in the past...probably why you got them so cheap....

not the case. this is a you pull it junk yard and they were hidden behind factory panels and hooked to a stock deck. usually they take out the good stuff before it hits the yard but these slipped by and the price for a speaker (OEM or aftermarket is $6 flat , no questions asked). i actually found a $500 dollar pair of boston's out there about 10 years ago and only paid $6 for the pair (Prices were lower 10 years ago)

the bostons were a good find...you ever find any good old school amps for cheap ?

06-27-2010, 12:52 AM
paid 60 dollars for the pair of ppi's i'm running and the guy threw in a 12" thunder 7500 for good measure. but not too often do i run in to old school amps unless i am hunting for them. right now i want a pc2350 but i dont have the cash to get one.:(

yea i have a junkyard close to me that has a small room with all the audio they take out of cars. Been meaning to hit that lil room up to see what they have but havent got around to it.

Junk yards down here in az dont let anything good slip. It is rare to find a you pull around here. Last few time I went to a junkyard, they litterally had every car stripped and parts catagorized on shelves. Much suckage.
