    3.5" sdpeaker??

    I have a 95 BMW M3 and have installed a set of comps in the kicks and door, i still have a 3.5" speaker mid in the door and want to make this a 3 way system, my question is i have only been able to find 3.5" coax speakers, can i cut the tweeter off of the coax and just use it as a mid hi or will it ruin the speaker? the tweeter mount goes up thru the main part of the speaker and unscrews and i can cut the tinsel leads to the tweeter, will this work or ruin the speaker?

    ha ha ha .... if you go to the link at the bottom of Dave's post, you will find they sell a dedicated 3 1/2" mid known as the L3.



    standard disclaimer: I know nothing ..... take my advice at your own peril

    A few that come to mind...

    CDT ES-03
    Hybrid L3
    Fountek FR88
    Peerless 830986 and 830987

    I've used the HAT L3s, and will be installing the CDTs eventually, can't go wrong with either, but if price is a concern the Founteks are only 25 each, and the Peerless are currently marked down on Madisound to 15 each.



    - Alpine CDA-9887 - AudioControl DQS - Linear Power 652I - B&G Neo3 - Clarion DPX 2251 - Vifa XT18 - Clarion DPX 1851 - Alpine SWX-1243D -
