Got my MBQuarts!

Got my set of MBQuart RCE-216 6.5" Reference components. .75" Tweeters, monster x-overs, 60-130RMS. Will install tomorrow and get pics of that. Pictures speak for themselves...

NICE! We carry Quart where I work, but hardly anybody uses them. They don't want to spend the money. I say they're missin' out!

Mine light up real good too, and I mounted them on the rear panel so it lights up the whole cab real good. I have to cover up the lightbulb with something to stop the light.

true dat, i have a set of alpine F1 status components and the xovers are roughly 6"x8" and 3" tall and when they light up they light up the entire vehicle. GL with those Q's. i have the perfect EQ for those speakers if you want it pm me and i can send you pics.

What can I do about the x-over lightbulb to stop all of the light from showing without making it too hot? I might go to the autoparts store and get some of those ghetto plastic colored sleeves for ricers that slide over the bulb to color the light, maybe those will stop most of the light. If I can i'll put 2 or so on each bulb. I'd cover it with some high-heat paint but I don't want the bulb to not dissipate enough heat and burn up, and I think electrical tape would melt.

I got them hooked up and took a trip this weekend so I got to play around with them. They are amazing! The sound quality is superior. The midbass is awesome compared to stock and what i've had. Especially with the whole door and cab sound deadened with eDead, it really brings out what these speakers can produce.

The only bad thing, they rattle the he** out of the stupid door winder ***** and I don't know of anything to do about it! And the lightbulbs in the crossovers are super bright at night at high volumes and I need to hide the light some how!
