    Sounds to me like theyre not gonna last long.... no "personal" experience w/ 3.5"s but you may want to dial the bass down on the headunit and cut off any bass boost/etc... also i would cut on the high pass filter if the unit is capable

    theyres no grinding noise or anything, it just pops every few bass hits.. happens if i have the car off with just music playing or if im driving.. theyres no pop when i first turn the headunit on or off its just while the music is playing... sounds almost like a rock hitting my windshield or something but i dont blast the volume because i figure its going to keep popping and i didnt want to blow the speaker yet.. lol..

    yep, you need a high pass crossover on them. commonly called "bassblockers" they are simply a non-polarized capacitor wired in series. the value of the cap depends on the nominal impedance of the speaker. google "bassblockers" and buy some rated for 160Hz.

    they are only a couple of bucks and they will protect your speakers. you'll loose midbass but what do you expect from 3.5" speakers?



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