View Full Version : Best value shallow component speakers? [for Toyota Yaris]
07-23-2012, 02:09 PM
Im new to the forum. Just had a small question. Can you guys recommend me a good value set of shallow component speakers. I own an 02 Toyota Yaris (a small car) and the maximum mounting depth it allows in the door speakers is around 58mm. The door speakers are 6.5' (17cm) and the dash speakers are 4' (10cm).
Ideally I would like to spend no more than $200-250. I live in Malta in Europe and the price of car audio equipment here is almost criminal, so I would be buying all items online. If I need a small amp to power the speakers, please recommend me one as well.
Please keep in mind that I am new to car audio and learning along the way.
Thanks in advance for your help

I have a set of kenwood component's. They are amped and I absolutely do not like the Mids. The tweeters sound nice though

Hi guys, I came across some
Infinity Kappa 65.7cs
Hertz Space K6L
Alpine Type R SPR-60C
CDT Audio EU-61NEO
What do you think? I read the midrange & midbass in the hertz is lacking, as is in the CDT. Don't know much about the other two.
Seems you cant get a decent set of shallow component speakers without compromising on sound quality :/

no midrange lack in my cdt speakers..they actually sound fantastic!the hertz sound excellent as long as you have the power, and a clean amp to run,like a zapco,or a good zed amp.you buy a cheap amp,and put on them,they will sound like garbage.you can get a good used zed amp for $150,and they will come alive with power,along with clarity/low distortion..i have several amps that are in and under that range that will make them sound amazing.id go with cdt,the hertz are real sensitive.even to little distortion.cdt not so much.jbl make some great speakers @2ohms that sound great also.noy sure about slim,havent looked yet but the 6.5 i put in my friends gradprix sound great.i havent heard the alpine type r,but supposed to be good.infinity are great for stock replacements,with approx 50-70rms,that i have experienced,but do sound good,as well as polk..polk momo,sound amazing with good clean power.just what ive experienced,and have stuck with the cdt.

Look at some of the Massive shallows

thanks for all your suggestions. I hadnt heard of those Massive Audio comps before (SK 6 Stage II).
But now am unsure which one to get! Hertz, CDT, Polk,MA or even the Focal 165-VRS. wish I had a shop like Fry's close to me to listen to all these systems!
What set would you say is best for a small car (Yaris, think its called an Echo in the US)?
