View Full Version : my new system, what do you think :)

I spoke with some people at my local car audio store, and here's what i'm planning on doing to my 1980 cadillac fleetwood brougham.

I'm going to leave my two front 4x6s open, nothing there, because they just face right up at the window anyway. the back 6x9s i'm going to be replacing with Memphis "M" class 6.5" components, and i'm going to be installing two Memphis "M" class 6.5" component speakers in the front left and front right doors. the tweeters will be wired to the inside corner of the car (one tweeter in each corner). These four speakers will be pushed with my Memphis 16-ST3004 amp. this leaves room for expansion, should i decide in the future to add two speakers in the back doors, etc.

also that means the sound will be coming AT ME, as opposed as going toward the windshields :-/

What do you think ;)

sounds like my setup, the tweeter in the dash, the mids on the doors. I had to get a -3dB attenuator to match the mids. I wouldn't get anything for the rear. Save that money for a decent sub system.

i already have a decent sub system ;)

and i want the back passengers to be able to hear some music too you know ;) :) hence the two 6.5" components at the back. the guy's giving me the two sets of 6.5" Memphis "M" class components (the yellow-black cone ones) for $400.00. is that a fairly good deal? i guess that comes out to about $200 a set ;)

Anyway, according to him, that should get loud as hell, and stay crisp clear.

Just buy the front stage for now and later on try the rear stage. You won't like it at all. Screw the people in the rear, tell them if they want speakers to ride with someone else. he comp set up front will be nice though. That's the only highs I have in my car...
