    Icon32 which is better? stock camry or dual speakers

    the title pretty much says it all
    well.. heres the story, i'm getting a new CD unit for my car, and they are giving free speakers, the Dual 6-1/2 Dual-Cone Car Speakers with Polypropylene Cone (Pair)

    Model: XP65



    obviously they are not top notch, but still, free is free, so i was wondering though,
    if i should change the speakers, or keep my original stock speakers (toyota camry 1998)

    thanx, btw, wat is a good CD unit to buy? something between 150 to 200, i'm looking at this kenwood one thats pretty good, but wat else is good?

    the duals probably are better... the stock speakers are pretty garbage... whats the power ratings on the duals?

    Low profile ABS grille




    Black satin anodized injection-molded polypropylene cone for low distortion and powerful bass response




    Black foam surround




    11-ounce magnet




    .100/.187 terminal strip

    but the problem... i dont konw the features on my camry, well, the sound is pretty good, so i dunno, maybe i'll save a few extra bucks and keep my originals

    Re: which is better? stock camry or dual speakers

    Camry factory speakers are 15w PEAK. So that leads me to believe the Duals are in fact better. Also, remember the stock speakers don't have a tweeter at all. (unless you have premium sound system then I don't know.)

    Re: which is better? stock camry or dual speakers

    I'd probably stick with the stocks. And buy online...figure out a way.



    I used to spend a lot of my free time here. It was fun I suppose. Still rocking the 9515 and Better Audio amp haha.

    How's incriminator stuff these days?

    I wouldn't waste my time putting in the Duals. It's not that much of an improvement.

    Keep the stock speakers, sell the duals for $5 and put that twards buying some nice components.

    Phone book is paperback, dictionary is hardcover. I think we know which we'd rather be hit by.

    Re: which is better? stock camry or dual speakers

    if they're gonna be free, get 'em anyway; then, either sell them for "cheap" (up to your discretion) or keep them for backup. (backup in the sense that your "real" speakers are blown and now you have nothing cause you didn't keep the dammn free speakers)



    best sig of all time
