    Newbie Question on 3 ways vs. 4 ways

    Just wondering , I have two new sets of speakers & will be installing one pair in the door of my Mustang.
    Both are 6 1/2 inch in size, but one pair is three ways & the other are four ways.
    The magnets on both pair are 10 ounce each.
    My question is , is there a big difference in sound quality between three way vs. four ways ?

    anything over 2-ways is just a scam and makes no difference.

    Usually a good 2 way co-axil will be better built then a 3, 4, or even 5 way. It really just a marketing scheme. Listen to both and decide which ones you like better. If you get money later on try and upgrade to a componet set and small amp to push them.

    Ya if your buying a co-axil dont bother goin higher then 2-way. If its component a good 3-way can be better then a 2-way.

    Then again, a good 2-way coaxial can be better than even a 3-way component setup.

    what equipment is this, exactly?

    2-way vs. 3-way vs 4-way doesn't mean jack if we're comparing pyramids to diamonds

    Thanks for the info, I took my car to my friends shop to have the speakers installed & we ran into a problem.
    The new speakers kept grounding out on the metal door frame , so he had some Alpine 3 ways , that he installed that fitted & works great.
    He has been doing my car audio work for over 18 years & I send him customers often.
    He sold the new Alpines to me for thirty dollars, brand new.
    He said they were a model of Alpines that were discontiued earlier this year, but they sound great !
    I took the other speaker back & got a full refund.
    Thanks for everyone help, you guys know a lot !
