i have these comps powered by a kicker zx550.2.
Image Dynamics CTX-6.5cs (CTX 65 CS) 6.5" CTX Component Speakers
I just cant get any SQ out of them. Stock stereos have way better SQ. When i turn the volume high its like you cant even understand the words. I have double checked polarities and crossover/amp wiring and everything is fine. I have the mids sealed to the doors and the mid bass response actually sounds good. Tweeter are mounter slightly off-axis in the door panels. 14 gauge speaker wire ran wire ran all around except to the tweets because there was already thin 18 gauge attached to them. I have played with EQ and amp setting to no avail. Any tips? Im not an audiophile or anything but these just sound bad. Every mds/highs setup i have had sounds bad lol. I have also tried running them off a different amp, different RCA's, different grounds, and different wiring. I have a JVC arsenal HU. I know these speakers and amp isnt the best but it still is decent and i feel like i should be getting better SQ than a stock stereo setup. considering moving the tweets somewhere on axis. But yea any tips on what i should try?
