    infinity

    I have that heard that infinity speakers were really harsh. Yet, im thinking of getting them because there arent too many spaekers that fit my front door. Plus they look like nice speakers. Can somebody who has used these or know somebody who has please tell me what you think of these speakers.

    They are 6.5 inch 6002si

    infinity speakers

    Re: infinity

    I have the reference infinity 6x9's and they don't sound harsh at all and im pleased with them. Then again i dont' know how they compare to the 6.5's since yours will be circle and there your door speakers and mine are in the rear. Thats a good price for them there usually like 150. Have you tried looking into MB Quart and CDT componet speakers? I haven't owned those brands but after doing some research on this website they seem to be the best speakers but then again there going to cost alot more then $100 dollars. How much are you trying to spend anyways?? Sorry i couldn't be more help hopefully someone with 6.5 will reply to this.

    BTW. Have you checked out www.thezeb.com yet? They have those cdt speakers for half price in the size your looking for. Also the mb quarts are also around the same price as those infinity's. To be safe i would check to see if there is a dealer near you using that dealer locator on www.mbquart.com to see if you like the sound of them. To bad the only cdt stores are in CALI so it would be a gamble to go with them unless you can rely on the opinions on this website.

    Re: infinity

    I have the 605CS component speakers mixed with a Kappa Perfect10” sub. I find they mix very well together for SQ. I paid $189 Canadian ($130 USD) for the components. I think Crutchfield is one of the more expensive places to buy equipment (IMO) but they do have good service from what I here. On Etronics you could have the components for $20 more witch in my opinion is a better value. Or see if you can take this price to an Infinity dealer and see if they will match it (that’s what I did). Etronics is not an Infinity dealer and warranty becomes and issue, although I have not had problems.

    http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...ore=&catid=358

    My Infinity speakers are good (not best). I like the silk dome tweeter which I do run at minus 3db with one out of phase. It has really good mounting options. The mid bass is accurate and punchy but if you are looking for tones of mid-bass out of them they will not produce. You really need a sub with them. The 602SI won’t be any better.

    If you are running your speakers off a head unit and the 3/8” mounting depth makes a difference they will be a good choice (you can find them cheaper though). If you have a decent amp, I would wait, save your money and look for some of the options mentioned above (i.e. Diamond Audio, CDT, etc) or at least go with the components for $20 more. BTW – don’t let looks fool you when buying equipment. Do your research and listen to people who know.

    Re: infinity

    I was going to get Kenwood Excilons 5 1/4 this wknd, and got Infinity Kappa's thinking they were better. Are they any good? I wanted to run a Punch amp powering them. How do they compare to MB Quartz or Focal?

    thanks

    You get what you pay for in most cases. There are a ton of reviews on these speakers on this sight and others. Search this sight or try this:

    Re: infinity

    I dont want components, i would rather have coaixials due to ease of installation blah, cheaper, blah. my installation depth on doors is just barely 2 inches. Also plan on getting kenwood x579 head unit w/o an amp for now.(or maybe never). I would like these apeakers to give some bass. It sounds like the infinitys dont deliver in that area. SO, should i get the rockfords or the kickers.

    Thank you,

    Re: infinity

    If bass is what you going for i would get those kicker resolution midbass speakers,the "RMB6" comes in a 6 1/2 size . Far as price goes im not sure but the rms watts is 125 which would need an amp. Even if you didn't get the midbass ones your still going to need an amp if you buy an upper end 6 1/2 because your hu won't put out enough power to them.I would listen to the kickers before buying them,usually most of the bigger car audio stores in your town would carry them and far as rockfords,best buy is the first place i can think of that carries them,good luck.

    B.T.W. Do you already have subs or are you just playing on getting really good 6 1/2's for bass? If you don't have any subs and don't plan on getting any i would get those 8 inch midbass kickers they are 2 1/4 inch's thick which might be a tight fit but im sure with some work you could get them to fit

    Re: infinity

    Still need a Amp to move those 8" ers. Sounds like its not in the budget.

    The infinities dont deliver in this area but most speakers in this range dont either. Personally, I would get some speakers that you can drive off you head unit. You can always expand into the rear in time to add fill. Then save some money and get a small sub and amp to fill in the lower end. You wont be able to have it all on a budget like that.

    Even better, if you just want more power to the music. Run the stock HU and speakers and save a little more money and just get a mono amp and a sub to add to what you have. You can get amps with high level in-puts, run your rear speakers positive and negative into the amp, and get a good sub that you can build on (new front speakers and HU) down the road when funds are available. Most car systems are missing among other things mostly bass. I've never done this before but all things considered, I dont see anything wrong with it. Just dont go out and get two twelves or anything, I'm thinking one 8" or 10". Unless you like that "old school rumble". This also takes into account what you have stock insn't 20-year-old POS.

    Re: infinity

    i think a better way would be to get the cdt components for the front and cdt midrange speakers for the back

    sound good.

    Re: infinity

    LOL, you’ve just gone from a $99 install to running 2 pair of CDT’s with amps to boot. What about the 2.25” mounting depth and your space limitations. Hey, I’m not knocking you, you just gotta make up your mind what you want, how much you are willing to spend and how much of your own time you’re willing to put in. I can’t vouch for your set-up but I can say it will be a lot better than just the $99 dollar speakers. I don’t own CDTs but they come highly recommended. These amps, don’t know.

    My previous recommendations were based on your limited budget. If you’re gonna be running higher fidelity speakers you are into a hole other ball park. You will need to start thinking about a decent head unit to get clean signal to those speakers, pre-outs on the head unit, amp power kits, amp space and mounting, etc. etc. You are not just bolting in replacement speakers anymore.

    Sounds like you need to do a rethink :thumbsup

    Re: infinity

    i was originally planning on getting a kenwood x579 and two sets of 99 dollar speakers.

    thats about $400. the kenwood is nice cause has room for expansion. 3 sets of preamps, etc.....

    im just going with cdts. Plus, the cdt comps and the cdt midranges are only about 30 dollars more than the 2 sets of coaxials. The cdt will sounds a whole lot better then the coaxials even if the cdts are not amped.
