View Full Version : Question re: vehicle air space and components

03-02-2005, 11:26 PM
Hello all, I've decided I'm going to upgrade the speakers in my Honda Element. Been looking at a few of the usual suspects - dreamlines, ef61s, etc. - and was wondering if the air space in my vehicle will affect the sound of the speakers or if it's something I shouldn't take into consideration when making the decision. Thoughts?

The interior of your vehicle is going to have a huge, huge, huge effect on the way your speakers sound. However, this isn't something you can really "consider" when choosing speakers. Choose the speakers that sound best to your ear, then do your best to make them sound good once they are in your car.

thanks for the input. wasn't sure if i should take into consideration the amount of space i'd have to fill and if there were a way i could account for the loss of frequency from the airspace.

What squeak said. Most speakers will still sound just as good as they did in the store. But there are a lot of factors not limited to vehicle air space. Like speaker position, angle, how well dampned your panels/doors are...

So just getting a good set and working with them is your only option I see...
