    Oh man.....

    I hate buying from circuit city... and best buy and **** like that.... but seeing that I work for circuit city and get like an insain discount on speakers I figured "why not, i can always return them..."


    I purchased
    Alpine SPS-690A for my 6 x 9's
    Alpine SPS-130A for my doors.

    Alpine MRP-F240 was the amp I got to power them.


    What do you think?

    Btw I paid 200 for everything.

    PLEASE let me know asap so i can know weither to return them or not

    Re: Oh man.....

    I'd return the 6x9's and get 6.5's.

    I don't know if those other speakers are compnents but if they aren't I would spend the difference and fet the type s or type r comps.

    Re: Oh man.....

    well going from stock to this, will i notice any differnce? will it be clearer? and also for the price i paided is that bad? I mean I dont wana go to extreme cause I was sorta pleased with what I had. It was just that I couldnt hear any vocals at all when I had a REALLLY REALLY bassy song?

    Will these help?

    Round i gess. They should handle more bass maybe. I noticed that you have a 15" SX in a ported box. That thing should be pretty loud and i dunno how u even listen to the vocals with stock speakers.

    But yes you should see a difference. IMO I would just get a good set of components for the front with a good 2 channel amp and set that up. If you feel that u need speakers in the rear than return the 2 channel amp and get a 4 channel and buy some rear speakers. But i should be fine with a good comp set, lets say 100 watts in the front and with the sx in the back.

    Re: Oh man.....

    The round speaker doesn't have more bass it is clearer becuase oval speakers cause more distortion. It has something to do with the production of sound waves coming off the cone.

    Do a bit of reasearch and and you'll find that mine opinions are pretty much uniform with the rest of the forum.

    Re: Oh man.....

    ok well thats true but not really the main issue here. Im sure he was thinking about keeping the speakers or not. And how much better it would sound. He already purchased the speakers.

    Re: Oh man.....

    yea its a 4 channel. Does 50 x 4. There will definatly be a difference inside the car. U might prefer rear fill rather than not having it but it all depends on what you want. Get it installed and let us know how it sounds. Im sure that the highs and mids would sound good with that setup

    Re: Oh man.....

    well if its going to cost you to get it installed id say do it your self, if you can set up subs u can set up amped speakers, and it sounds like theyre the same size as your originals so all mounting should be cake.
