    Re: 8's in the door's what you think

    seems fine except the fact they are 8 ohm drivers and are hard to work into a car audio system.

    seems that they are also a 6.5 and not an 8

    If you want to build your own component set with 8" Mids, you could always look at the Kicker SSMB8's, they sound really good, and really pump out the midbass.

    Please stop with the 4 ohm vs 8 ohm thing.

    I'll post this link once again because I'm tired of typing the explanation.

    However, here is a great driver for the money, and it does happen to be 4 ohm.

    Re: 8's in the door's what you think

    Well obviously he is on a tight budget and I am assuming that he doesn't have gobs of money to power an 8 ohm driver seeing as you will need a pretty decent sized amp to get decent power to them.

    My point is why install them and then underpower them?
    might as well run them off your hu.......right?

    Please enlighten me why an 8 ohm driver is better than a 4 ohm driver in a car audio application?
