At first, I decided to replace my 10cm speakers but I couldnt tell any difference.....so, I sold those and got some Sony 6x9's on the parcel shelf. They do make more noise but there isnt enough bass on them (thats wen i got a sub) Anyway my mates got some pioneer 6x9's on his parcel shelf and they sound ace...
I'd do that if I was you...but whatever size speakers you want, get Pioneer NOT Sony.
My point exactly . Im waiting for my nice new £250 Sony Xplod minidisk headunit to replace my £99 one stolen on christmas eve. I dont mind the little pecker taking the stereo but there was no need to ram a 9"screwdriver through the door under the lock get in the car then rip the stereo out without unplugging it dumb c*nt [xx(]
I'm running a Kenwood minidisc headunit. the standard speakers are ok b ut the tweeters seem to rattle. i'd prefer a good, dynamic sound rather than thumping bass (most of the time) is there any point swapping the fronts when the cables are so tiny? Any suggestions?
yeah def swap the fronts for a decent set (over the sh1tty cardboard standard ones!!) They measure 16.5cm i think. But it is worth gettin new rears too....you can get 'modest' sub woofers that add a little bass to the sound and wont be too thumping- when ur ready neway
so whats a modest sub like? when people say SUB i visualise a carpet covered box that almost fills the boot with a speaker the size of a bin lid on the side. is that accurate? has anyone made a nice custom build? photos?
The Sony xplod head units are great, but speakers are pants.
As for the modest subs, my mates just bought a kenwood that has its own amp and two subwoofers on top. Its very small, obviously not producing as much bass as mine (but mine takes up all the boot).
Heres a link to that kenwood-
