My name is Timothy, and I would like to introduce my self, I'm a older (58 ) guy and I would grateful for some help.
I own a 2007 Tundra CrewMax with factory JBL system, and I intend to keep the vehicle as long as possible. For that reason I am willing to put some money in to an audio upgrade.
I mostly listen to blues, jazz, gospel. I'm interested in clarity, fidelity in reproduction, and acoustic detail, certainly not in excess bass.
My general plan is to replace the factory JBL speakers, including subwoofer and add a power amp. Last time I went car speaker shopping 20 years ago I fell in love with MB Quart.
My home speakers are Dahlquist DQ-10s (recently rebuilt) I love their clarity, fidelity, detail and depth of field.
My initial plan was to keep the head unit, replace the 6x9 and tweeters in F&R doors. Replace the factory subwoofer with a Sound Ordnance B-8PT. Add a modest JL Audio XD400/4 power amp. Unplug the factory dash tweeters and center channel.
Because I liked Infinity Reference home speakers 35 years ago my first instinct was look at their car speakers. I'm told that MB Quart has been sold and no longer what they once were.
A few local car audio shops near me have anything you want as long as you want Rockford Fosgate. They don't carry what I would consider the good stuff. It is tough for me to listen and shop at those places.
If I wanted a short list of very high quality, true-high-fidelity auto speaker manufactures that I should consider, who would be on that list?
My tentative parts list would look like 2 pair Infinity Kappa 60.9cs, Sound Ordnance B-8PT, and a JL Audio XD400/4.
Thank you in advance,
