Guys-

In the spirit of "there are no stupid questions", here goes . . .

How do I remove the grill covers on my stock speakers in my '94 TT and remove the stocks? What size fits perfect in front and in rear? I've blown the driver's side, so it's upgrade time!!! HELP! :eek:

Thanks for the details! I'll go to work and see what comes of it. Looking to upgrade my factories (because one has blown!) to something with little more power. Down to Xtant, Quarts, Eclipse. Any thoughts anyone?
:rolleyes:

I personally hate quarts. There tweeters are to brite and the mid- bass is lacking Tell me what your budget is and ill lead to some better speakers, such as Focals, dynaudio, Rainbow, Diamond audio ect...

While I agree with the anti-Quart sentiment, I have to respectfully disagree with the comment about lack of midbass. I recently listened to a set of PSC-316's in a Boxster with the 4/tweet in the dash and the six in the door. The midbass (and bass) was absolutely amazing. I know the installer who did the job and he's adament about the Quarts having a solid enclosure behind them. Granted, as was alluded to, the tweeters were attenuated and a bit of equalization was used. The system really did sound quite nice and the tuning really smoothed out the "Quart edge". I too have been anti-Quart for the last decade, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to do the same system in my Supra since it won't require hacking up the door. The only drawback I see to the 3 way system is the 350 Hz x-over point - I'd like to see it closer to 250 Hz for my application so I may have to modify it once the install is done. Back in the day when I used to really be into this stuff (I competed w/ my Camaro and my M3), I had a similar setup in my Camaro. I'm typically against anything other than a sub being placed behind the listener, but a 250 Hz upper limit w/ a 12 db slope seemed to work pretty darn well and didn't jack with imaging. Of course, this was A) in a 1990 Camaro w/ a perfectly flat dash, and B) was with all Boston Pro speakers.

I'll be sure to let everyone know how the setup works out.

Tom- I saw your response to Yeagy on his "Best 5.25 set-up . . ." question, so I know this is going to cost me a little bit. I'm looking at Polk 5.25 components with 1" tweets and 6.5 coaxials for the rear. I need an Amp that would push this set-up along with a 10" Cerwin Vega woof in the trunk. What are your thoughts? Are there better speaker solutions for comparable monies? What are your suggestions for a quality amp at a reasonable $ for the set-up? I'm not looking to compete, just crank it (with no distortion or "rattling") with the lid out on the way to the lake on the weekends! ;)

Thanks for any help you could give!

Well, if you can give me the price you want to spend and exactly what you want out of it then ill help you out as much as i can. I would get a 4 channel amp and run the front two channel on a pair of Compnents, and the other two channels will be bridged to run a sub. This can be done very nicely, but i need to get an idea of what you want to spend. Alos, what headunit are you using. That plays a factor

I've got an Alpine 3DA-W882 head unit. I'm looking to spend somewhere between 500-700 for a 1200-1500 system. ;)

Thoughts?

FYI, the factory door speakers are 4". You mentioned putting in 5.25". Making a trim ring, and cutting/fiberglassing the factory enclosure is the nice way to make a 5.25" or 6.5" fit. It's a pretty detailed process. I just got done doing it for my diamond hex 6.5 inchers. If you're trying to stay at a more modest, do it yourselfer setup, I would recommend finding a nice 4" and tweet combo. It would be a simple screw-in install. BTW, the 6.5" screw right in to the rear enclosures. Well, almost. I had to heat up the rear of the plastic enclosure, and bump it out slightly to clear the magnet. Good luck with your install whatever you go with :)
