Re: Just a Girl....
yea I would not trust best buy to do any car audio install. For $1000 you could've already had some pretty decent gear. The most common scenario is when you upgrade to aftermarket speakers and they sound worse. That's because you need to add some sound deadening material to make it a better seal. Stock speakers are supposed to sound good for what they are without any modification. If you want your subs to hit hard, you should invest in a custom ported box. Not a generic prefab box you can buy from best buy. Look into other brands besides the mainstream stuff you see in best buy. You'll save a lot more money and get better quality stuff. Keeping reading around this forum and you'll find plenty of ideas to go off of. If I was you I would start off by ditching the 2 farad cap, it does more harm than good. Then I would invest in alot of sound deadening material and definitely look into buying a custom box. If you want clear loud sound, get a powerful 4 channel amp and a mono block amp that is 1 ohm stable. Then look into getting a decent pair of component speakers that consists of tweeters, 6.5" mids, and a crossover. Put those in the front and stick the cerwin vega 6.5's you have in the rear as you want the best speakers in the front and the rest as rear fill. Tell us your budget and we can go from there.
