View Full Version : Worth it to go from coaxial to components in front doors?
10-08-2013, 03:33 PM
Right now I have coaxial Polk Audio db651s in all four doors of my 2011 jeep liberty powered with 50W a piece from a Rockford Fosgate amp and Rockford Fosgate Prime R1T-S tweeters in the dash reflecting off of the windshield powered with 50W a piece from my head unit. The tweeters are only rated for 40W RMS and get distorted bad at 2/3 volume or higher. My question is would it be better to just replace the tweeters with an appropriate replacement such as the RE Audio TW-25 Tweeters and keep my coaxial door speakers or replace my front door speakers and dash tweeters with the polk audio 6501 component set and power those from only my amp?

I would say $130-150, but less is better. I really like the sound of my current polk audio db651s which is why I was thinking replace them with their component counterpart.

you should just buy the db6501 component set and put the 651's in the rear. also you should get a better amp cuz the one you have doesnt even produce that much power. and running tweeters off a headunit is always gonna sound bad if you dont have any good crossover settings.

Yup, yup, and yup.
You got 6 tweeters everywhere in the car.
