    couple questions

    so i'm lookin to replace my type r coaxial speakers with component speakers. the highs on them distort especially on the sssss's. So I would like to replace them with a good set of component speakers, the catch is I have a total of 2 5/8 allowable depth. I have a budget of 200 - 300 would prefer to keep it closer to 200.

    Also when installing these can I keep the rear speakers playing with a 4 channel amp. Run the front speaker outs to the crossover then from the crossover to the mids and tweeters and the rear channel of the amp to the rear coaxial speakers. other options/opinions for better sound?

    I have a polk audio d4000.4 channel amp with 125rms per channel and a pioneer 80prs head unit.


    thanks guy

    Never used these speakers, though look very nice/specs....But I myself could not find the depth of the speakers, even from the Home page.id give them a call and find out

    JBL MS-62C have gotten great reviews. I have a set of CDT HD62 CF that I never got to install yet, but I can tell you the mounting depth is 2-3/8". @mylows10 will hook you up if you go with CDT.

    are you using the CDT HD62 CF?


    http://www.arcaudio.com/pdfs/reviews...views-9.01.pdf

    second page says 2.5" depth which would work.

    it's 350.00 for the set i was hoping to keep this between 200-300 and hopefully closer to 2, however I may have to save up because those specs look crazy. However I will be forced upgrade the amp because they are rated at 180 rms. geeze that's crazy

    Re: couple questions

    You don't need to upgrade your amp. It's fine for just about any 2-way set on the market. The "sss" sound is sibilance, and it isn't from distortion. Upgrading to a nicer speaker should help.
