    Re: image dynamics XS-57 comp vids...

    for one, reminds me of when i talked to my cousin from tennessee about car audio, exact same accent. not making fun, im just a "yankee" from ohio (what he calls me) so to me everyone has an accent haha

    for two immediately i thought " what a *******, he couldnt wait to smoke in a 3 min vid" then you called yourself a *******. thought that was funny.

    nice vid.

    Why did you opt for the 5x7 over the 6.5s?

    why? wanted to do a simple install for my weekend warrior vehicle. expedition has stock 5X7 in the doors. really... i was just curious as to what a 5X7 component would sound like. i could've went the 6.5 route. also... eric at id said these have more midbass and output than the 6.5.

    tomorrow i'll install them. see what these sound like in a car enviroment

    Did you have plenty of room before the door panel? I was thinking of using a .75 mdf baffle for a strong hold to the door....I feared the tweeter would protrude too much and hit the door panel.

    well considering that is was powered by a HT receiver which have way better sound quality than most any car receiver. you really can't make that type of comparison on sound quality.

    yeah... and mounted in a thin carboard box too. realisticly... these comps were only gettn between 60-70 watts rms from the amp. imagine what 225 watts of clean power will sound like! much better than a home audio reciever
