View Full Version : How to install speakers to make then get LOUD!!!!

11-20-2004, 02:22 AM
Hey guys, right now all I have running are fronts (MB Quart DSE216). They are installed in the stock door location. My doors are bare empty metal. So the enclosure for the speakers is pretty much the entire inside of the doors. Im sending them roughly 110rms with an alpine MRV-T420.

I just dont think these speakers get very loud. I mean i crank my deck up to 29 sometimes 31 (Alpine CDA-9813 volume goes 0-35) and they get loud but not LOUD like I want.

If i change the install would they get louder? I dont have much $$$ right now so I dont wanna do something if it wont make that much difference. As they are they dont sound very good. And i know the install aint that good but hey thats all I could do myself.

Would getting kick pannels made make enough of a difference to cost me $250-$350CDN? (so roughly $190-$260US)? Is there something I could do that would be cheaper? I mean I wanna hear some midbass from those midbasses.

Help me out guys!!!

kick panels would be good but I'd suggest taken a look at your settings....set everything the way u like it...

most importantly I'd deaden those doors....interiors for the most part work in ib form...meaning separating the front waves from the back waves..that would create better midbass...as for the tweeter I'd suggest playing around with the location of it..

are they pointed to the opposite headrest????

yes tweeters are placed well, they get loud and drown out everything else. I have them at -3db set on the crossovers.

could explain more about deading?

the tweets get loud enough? so you dont have enough mids? deadaning both the interior of the trim panel and the doorskin would help to reinforce them. or, look into a prefab baffle for them, basically a sealed cup to mount the 6.5, 5.25, whatver into... then into the door location.
