    Coaxial Question

    Are coaxial speakers with built in crossover networks any good? Components are out of the question here. Just looking for for better sound than what the stock system does. Also would it be worth it to amp some coaxials?? O and this isn't going to be in my car i'm doing this for a friend.

    Just like in all other aspects of car audio it depends on the speakers in question. Some are decent, some are great, and some are absolute crap.

    In most cases better than stock isn't terribly hard to achieve.

    In most cases, yes. Powering a decent set of aftermarket speakers from the headunit will almost never allow you to realize the full potential of the speakers.

    Re: Coaxial Question

    Just remember u'll never need more than a 2-way coaxial speaker. Don't get fooled by all those ones that come with like 5 different types of speakers or what not.

    Re: Coaxial Question

    I second the above posts...

    I would amp them no matter what, it will be worth in both clarity and volume.

    Coaxials range from durabrand at walmart to $$$ Morel Hybrid Ovation XO.

    What is your budget?

    Re: Coaxial Question

    5 channel amp.

    The Baby Belle would be an excellent choice for that application.

    Re: Coaxial Question

    Do those pg's have the crossovers? So are you suggesting a 5ch. amp just incase my friend would want to add a sub later? The car we are talking about is a 94Mazada Protogue.

    Re: Coaxial Question

    Yes.

    Having external crossovers does not make the coaxial inherently better.

    Re: Coaxial Question

    I think they are closer to $100.

    I went with the $69 you had originally
