Re: How to get the best Image
Imaging is only one aspect of the sound in your car. If all you have is 6X9's and 5.25's running off head unit power (no subs, no amp), then a good set of 6X9's can add a whole lot of midbass and impact to the overall system. Imaging will ****, but that might be better than tinny sound from weasly 5.25's up front and no bass.
The trick will be to get as much from the 5.25's as possible... the better they sound, the less you'll rely on the rears and the better the imaging will be. Reinforce the kick panels with dampening material. Use a good set of components and a 50-75 watt amp if possible.
