    Pathfinder 95 speakers upgrade

    I have reacently got my new HU a Pioneer, and wan to change my
    stock speakers.
    They are 5" X 7" [ front and rear ], I really Don't like how they sound
    but I don't plan to acquire an amp to power them, just to power
    the subwoofers.

    Which model and brand SPEAKER would you recommend me?
    They should sound good with the power from my Pioneer HU
    50 W X 4 MAX -- 22 W X 4 RMS

    They should be 5" X 7" to fit them in the car.

    Thanks

    there are a lot of different speakers to choose from....i've had good experience w/ sony explode and w/ fosgate but those were both 6x9's i dont knwo if they make 5x7's...also just check the specs on different speakers and look at your price range....you also might think about getting some kind of passive crossover to keep the lowest bass from getting to those speakers because of distortion....but just check others out and see what happens.....check out www.crutchfield.com....it has alot of information on almost every type of speaker out there....

    Clarion and Pioneer ...

    What do you think about these models:

    Pioneer TS-A5713 120 W MAX AND 40 W RMS
    Clarion SRC-5784 140 W MAX
    Sony XS-5726 120 W MAX
    Clarion SRC-5794 130 W MAX

    And of course The Polk Momo the dude above said??
    By the Way Thanks for the info.

    Which one of these models will be louder, clearer and
    with enough thump (is it possible on a 5" x 7" speaker?)
    to rock me?

    I will appreciate all your comments

    JR

    well to get 5x7's to thump...well it depends on how much power they are getting and if they are in a box if you really want it to thump i advise upgrading to a sub and amp

    No Thump!

    I do plan to acquire an amp and subs, but first
    I want to upgrade my factory speakers.
    So what do you think of the models I posted two
    messages above??
    They will be powered by the Pioneer HU, 22 W X 4 RMS
    and 50 W X 4 MAX.

    Maybe any of these models have great midbass???

    Thanks

    Mounting depth

    I've just checked the polk's
    but its mounting depth is greater
    than the Pathfinder's supposed to (2 " )
    Would I have any problems with that ??

    I got that info from www.mobiletoys.com

    The depth (rear and front speakers) must be
    of 2" maximum.

    Or can I install them anyway?

    Thanks

    V.I.P. members wanted

    What do you think?
    Any other choices if the Polk's dont fit my car?

    I've just read the reviews on circuitcity.com and they are great. Someone
    wrote he installed on a Pathfinder, but did'nt mention the year.

    I'll be waiting for any vip.

    Thanks

    JR

    If you only have a 2inch mounting depth, that doesn't give you much room. Are you sure of that number?

    If that is truly the case, then just at a quick glance at Crutchfield, the only 5X7 that they carry that fits that spec is the Polk Ex357 at 1 13/16". Everything else is 2+inches.

    I would caution you about going above the rated mounting depth, especially if these are door speakers as you are liable to suddenly become unable to roll down your windows.

    If you do determine that you can go above the 2" mounting depth, I recommend the Blaupunkt ODxa574's. I have them and are really pleased with them. Also, I have heard the Polk dx7's and they are good as well.



    If Elvis was so great, why is he buried in the back yard like a hamster?

    Aiwa CDC-MP3 HU,
    Blaupunkt ODxa574's in doors,
    Pioneer GM-X564 4x50w amp.
