    Rainbow SLC 265's

    Do you thinks these would be loud enough to help balance out the bass from my 15" SSD? My door speakers are stock and you can barely if not hear them at all.

    Do they sound good without an amp or is it really worth putting an amp with them? Also if I have a limited mounting depth do I need to make sure I have extra romm so when the back of the speaker moves?

    get .75" spacers and amping them is a must for your purposes...

    Your stock speakers may even be louder than the rainbows because they would be both receiving aboug 20rms. You definitely need an amp that puts out about 100-150rms, then put them in a nicely deadened door and you should be very happy.

    What exactly are the spacers metioned earlier that I need? Wouldnt they not work casue it lifts the speaker off the door thefore not creating a seal?

    I agree he just completely made himself look like an idiot.

    MDF Spacers, you seal them to the door, then you seal the speakers to the spacers. O' and you might want to throw some sound deadner in there to help out, just a thought. By the way sealing does not mean glue them to the door or speaker and sound deadning is not fiberglass insulation product from Lowe's.

    Re: Rainbow SLC 265's

    In my mind spacers were like large washers, I guess the mdf spacers your talking bout are like a ring the size of the speaker. Hopefully that makes sence. I do know what proper sound deadner is and I wouldnt use insulation from lowes...lol. Should I just deaden the whole door or is part of it only neccesary?
