my first mod was a head unit and replace door speakers. But everywhere, people talk about tweeters and mid-ranges and component systems. What are all these, i've checked them out, but wondering if i need a component system for tweets?
In your normal coaxial door speaker, the tweeter is mounted in the middle of the woofer. By using a component system and moving the tweeter to a different location, you can not only optimize the sound from the tweeter via a new location, but you also remove the interference of the sound waves from the woofer and the tweeter when they are mounted together.
Also, you can feed more power to each woofer and tweeter when they are seperate. More power = better sound.
I now have infinity Kappa tweets I love them, souns so clear like riding in nice car, haha but I dididnt know what to do with the crossover box...so I just shoved it into the door panel and its been fine...as soon as weather gets better I'm gonna re mount them so there at an angle
do you have 4 of the boston componenets? see i don't get them, like are they to replace your speakers, or are they subwoofers? sumone please help me. I want to upgrade to a component system, but don't know much
I have 2 set of components, front and rear. They are the mb quart DCE-216'2 and the PCE-216s. I ended up mounting my tweeters in the plastic bezel right under the windshield and the x-overs in the glove box. The sound is amazing and crisp!
Ok, I'm going to go ahead and do it, but now I'm still a lil confused, how many do i need? I'm going to replace all 4 doors, so does that mean 4? or do they come in sets of 2? and where do you recomend the tweets to be located, some of you said higher than my leg, which makes sense? but please help
