View Full Version : is this a good speaker setup??(budget)
05-09-2005, 01:42 AM
ok, i drive a 90 camaro and i can't fit kicks in the floor boards because i'm 6'3" and need all the space i can get.....so i'll just have to put speakers in the stock locations. so here's what i wanted to do.........
Infinity 4x6 plate speakers http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/1343
should i amp these with this amp http://www.profilecaraudio.com/amplifiers.htm
(the 100sx btw) or just run them off the HU?(pioneer deh-4600mp) if i don't amp them, i'll use the amp for some 6.5's in the rear. I know its not good to have your main midbass behind you , but i'm afraid i won't have any midbass at all (besides the dash infinities) without some rear fill........so for some 6.5's i was thinkin about these.....
pioneer 6.5 coaxials http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/2942
alpine 6.5 type s coaxials http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/1292
both will be amped with the profile 100sx, any help would be greatly appreciated and i know the best solution would be to get comps and put them in some kicks, but i don't have the know how, or space for them........TIA

I had some infinity plates running off deck power, I was quite impressed, especially for the price.

are you SURE you can't fit kicks?! is it an automatic or stick? if it's an auto you can fit some fiberglass kicks in... i did and i'm 6'2"... i had a 91 camaro a few years ago... the 4x6 plates will NOT fit unless you heat and remold the a/c vents and cut away some plastic... i tried...
05-11-2005, 01:29 AM
you could angle the 4x6 which i did, i only used 2 screws

and if it's a plate... then more than likely the rubber surround of the mid will hit the bulky camaro dash... i hated that sound... so i returned them bought some components... and got some fiberglass kicks made

its an automatic. I might be able to fit them, but i have no experience in glassing, nor do i want to pay $200+ for qlogic kicks.......what should i do?i had a thread about maybe making some sort of a "minibox" for my comps to fit in the kick area....it would have the same effect as a set of kicks, just not the curvacious look of most kicks.........any thoughts???

I have the Infinity Kappa 4x6 plates and they are amazing. A 3 inch cone and a half inch suprised me. I ran mine off an amp and they got loud. They are rated at 65 rms. I was pushing a little more to them than that.

slody4futbol, where on thirdgen.org did you buy them?
05-12-2005, 12:26 AM
there was a guy named rezn8r ... that was a few years ago... and someone sold the molds to another guy... just do a search for fiberglass kicks or fiberglass kick panels... or make a post to see who makes some now
