    putting together speakers from parts express.some help needed

    so im trying to get a budget system going for my neighbor 2006 chevy aveo
    and instead of spending 50 bucks on coax bostons i thought i can throw together a lil better bang for the buck from parts express
    im replacing al4 speakers radio and adding a sub

    he wanted to spend around 300-400 bucks which is kinda nothing...
    so heres the speaker and sub parts that i pu on my list
    can anyone confirm that the crosover capacitors i picked would work ok
    and if not can you suggest a better ones
    and i also wanted to know if i can just hook up an air core inductor as a low pass for the 4' woofer


    Parts-Express.com: subwoofer
    Parts-Express.com: mid
    Parts-Express.com: tweet
    Parts-Express.com: tweet cap 4700hz
    Parts-Express.com: mid cap 200hz
    Parts-Express.com: air core inductor 4500hz low pass

    your selections look ok. are you sure that 4" mid will fit in the factory location - especially with the shielded magnet?

    you can use an air core inductor as a low pass for the 4" mid.

    not sure if your selections will out perform Boston speakers. main reason - those Jamo's are looking for an enclosure. where are you putting them?



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Not sure about that mids but the tweets are pretty good, I've used them before. I'd go with different mids and possibly the 8" Dayton sub (HO or Hf, I think it is).

    well those are the only ones 4 ohm
    and bostons are not components
    they are 50 bucks a piece(bostons)
    they re going in the doors



    how much work is it to fit a 6.5 there or at least 5.1/4

    I would try and go with the largest mid possible.



    2 Soundstream RUB4.600
    Audax TW025A2 tweeter in the A-Piller.
    Peerless 830986 3" Midrange in the sails.
    Peerless 830946 SLS 6.5 Midbass in the doors.
    Tang Band W69-1042J 6"x9" Subwoofers.
    Lanzar Optidrive 10-Channel crossover.
    Counterfit Pionner Double Din
    2ga welding cable and 12ga speaker wire.

    I wouldn't waste my money on that mid.

    If you want cheap and effective.

    Although if I could afford it, I would step up to the Dayton RS100. It's a much better driver.
