just reading around these forums i have gained a new insight on audio really great stuff floating around here
im new to these forums but not new to car audio and this time when building my system i decided to go a different route and install most of it myself like the good ole days got lazy over the past few years having shops do my installs but never seemed to be totally happy with what i got . Not installers fault im just a bit picky hehe plus i wanna get my hands dirty but im having a little trouble picking speakers .
the vehicle is a minivan with 5x7/6x8 (says crutchfield) does this mean that either 5x7 or 6x8 wil drop in that slot aslong as the mounting depth is the same as the speakers listed on crutchfield (2 7/16th inch) ? I ask because on cardomain it says i need an adapter for some of the speakers crutchfield says fit fine .
also i noticed that on crutchfield it says 5.25" will fit with adapter but i really really want 6.5 is this possible? im not against doing a little cutting or metal trimming if needed but would like to avoid if possible.
i need two pairs of coaxials or components as the ones in the minivan **** totally or i would use the stock rears for fill but feel they wont work very well at all since they are so far away. i would very much like to stay under $220 for the two pair but i also want good sound and am able to spend a lil more if i have to. the amp i will be using to run these speakers is a eD nine.4 any suggestions?
the system so far is as follows
HU Eclipse 8445
2 Premier TS-W2000SPL 12"
this will be going into a nissan quest
i also ordered a bunch of edead to quiet the rattles from such a big body i also will be needing to upgrade the ALT but seem to be having trouble finding one.ill deal with that later right now speakers is the name of the game
