View Full Version : 6.5 speaker

Vehicle is a party bus..looking for speaker recommendations. It currently has 8 ppi Sedona series,4 are blown or just tweets play...they're running off hifonics Zeus ,I think 100x4. Need to replace them..around $60.00 a set..subs used are 2 JL 12w1s on ppi600...also head unit is located in rear with passengers,so it's getting turned all the way up,so need something with stamina.

thats gonna be hard with the abuse it gets... Do you want it just loud? you can go for pro audio speakers, it can go very loud to ear bleeding volume levels with ease, it will be to the point where people wont even want to turn it up any louder. With the head unit at a lower level this will keep the signal clean and unclipped which means your less likely going to burn another set of speakers. These PA speakers can handle a lot of power also. See crescendo PWX or soundqubed Pro audio or sundown Neos or seleniums.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSD_osM_E1w this is how loud and clean it sounds on very little power around 12 rms per speaker, but it can handle up to 150 rms easily. I dont think any of your party customers can handle fully powered PA speakers.

The problem is alcohol ..it's a party bus so sometimes there drunk,so the volume is turned all the way up...

tune and setup amps accordingly once you have the new gear installed, you can set it up so that no matter how drunk they are they shouldn't be able to damage your system.

seems like they try to crank the bass and kill the speakers, is that right?

They crank it all...radio has the eq button so you know what that means...no matter what it's getting turned all the way up...I don't like the idea of the radio all the way up and amps all the way down but see no other way...then there's aux so we get all the distorted music as well

just protect your gear, if they wanna crank **** up so it sounds crap and distorted they can go for it lol..... might be worth doing a little upgrade tho. we have done a few party buses and they are a real pain.
