    Just my luck!

    I finally after months of having stuff sitting around got my lil system installed. Of course with my luck i knew something was going to go wrong. After everything got installed, i turned on my car and BAM! ugly rattle coming from right side mid, i take out mids, took a close look and connectors and there it was...RUST! Water damage! Now i have to get a new set of mids....what sounds good? I would like to spend a bit over $300 if neccesary.



    My current set up:
    HU: Pioneer Premier 90BT
    Subs: (2) 12" Dual Kicker Comp VR's in Kicker ported box@ 1 ohm
    LP AMP: Hifonics Brutus BXI 1608D
    HP AMP: Phoenix Gold Octane R 8.0:4
    Component Set: Eclipse SC8362 - soon to be replaced with ID OEM



    Ref -
    Have bought from: hessdawg

    I dont think its necessary to spend $300+ on just mids. Hessdawg has a pair of ID OEMs left for $90

    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Surface rust on the motor and/or frame is very common and generally wont hurt anything.

    Thanks for reminding me. I have a pair of those I swapped out for HERTZ 2 ways that have been sitting in the garage for like a year now not boxed that well. I guess I should go see if they're garbage now. Shame, those are pretty nice speakers.
