Post by Roadhog » Feb Mon 04, 2008 12:41 am

That's a pretty nice setup. I say go for it, cause that Kappa stuff is hard to get cheap. But I'm not sure what Aeron sells...

I would like to update my speakers from stock, but I need someone to make me spacer rings to match the stock speaker height, and drill out the rivets. If you don't know what I mean, the stock door speakers have a 1/2"(?) offset so the window has enough clearance, so they are "tall". I'm sure I could get anyone to make them... :mrgreen:

Okay, Spence, my first question is what are you wanting to achieve with your stereo? Once I have that in mind, it is much easier to design a system. Judgeing from the product you linked, I think I have an idea, but all input helps. I carr Memphis Car Audio exclusively, for many reasons(which we can talk about later), but mainly for sound quality and price. What size are the front speakers in your car? I can't remember if they are 5.25 of 6.5" You can check out the product at www.memphiscaraudio.com for some more insight. I am sure that I can design something for you that will fit your budget. Oh, and one more thing, the longstanding rule is car audio is that you should spend around $1.00 per watt output of the amp. Much less, and you are looking at crappy components. Not trying to be condecending, just offering up some advice.

uhm... I'm looking for good sound quality...Dunno what else to say.

The front speakers are fine, they are Rockford Fosgates. 5.25" I think.

I'm not ready to buy atm. This summer I will though. Price me out something when you get a chance...

Thanky.

Those are all awsome speakers. But you can get them 50% less with factory warranty from ebay stores. Try Audioblowouts. For your amp you can get WAY more bang for your buck if you use Lanzars Vibe series. I have the vibe276 and it puts out 1000w rms x 2 @2ohms with .05%thd. and it was only $92 new with warranty.

I would run a full Kraco system in a Corrado. Or if you really want to ball roll with Jensen. :laughing: And sorry Aeron but Ebay FTW!
