    5x7 or 6.5...?

    Hey all,

    My factory locations are 5x7's, im sure I can get 6.5's in there, but is there any real difference in sound from either?

    if you can fit them, go with the 6.5s. from everything i've personally heard, round speakers have better sq than oval speakers.

    Re: 5x7 or 6.5...?

    anyone have a short but technical explanation of the sound wave difference between oval and round?

    there's been square (kicker I think) subs that sort of worked ok, but I think it was just a gimic.

    There isn't any kind of sound difference in round vs oval.

    If you compare a nice 6.5 coaxial with its 6x9 counterpart the 6x9 will just have a little more "sub" to it because of the extra cone area.

    you'll have more cone area with the 5x7/6x8 so you will get better midbass..if you are using the same quality speakers....

    Get component speakers on a plate. Like my SL80s. They sound good (components), and all I had to do is screw them in.

    "An oval speaker has a less pronounced cone break up mode and smoother frequecy response as a result. Also the edge ring back cancellation at the top end will be reduced improving high frequency extension but this is somewhat outweighed by the longer distance to the edge in the other dimension."

    how? you being an ID fan Hoodlum i'ma use ID as an example between the xs57 and the xs65, the xs57 has a little more midbass 70 to 110 Hz but sq wise they are the same everywhere else.
