I wanted to get a real good quality sounding component set for my mustang....it needs to be 5x7 or 6x8 and I cant come up with options that satify me. can anyone give me any advice for the best set to get...thanx
well no component sets really come in those sizes and the ones that do don't sound too good. I would change the 6x9 to fit a 5.25 speaker in it and or the 5x7 to fit a 4in. The 5x7 are up front right? I know they have Q logic kicks that you can add a 5.25 to and then have a 4in component setup that would give a good sound to it. And for the rear just get a 6.5 midbass/subwoofer and call it a day. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am doing a group buy on tang band drivers and i sell CDT so i can figure something out for you.
i'd stick with the brands TY mentioned, i think they all make comps in the sized you mentioned. i'd stay away from the Q Logic Kick panels, cheap, thin, and open backed so there'd be no midbass. if you went kick panels, you'd be better off making some custom, or having them made.
theres a difference between components and coaxials. Jl makes some 5x7 systems but haven't seen too many 6x8s. The only odd sized comps i'd get is the JLs but they arent as good sounding as a regular sized speakers. I do agree with David getting kicks. I personally would place a 5.25 in the door and a 4in in the kicks. The Q logics aren't too rigid but a little dynamat will help that out and a 4in speaker won't effect the kickpanel that much trouble. And a 4in won't produce too much midbass anyways and in a 3way setup, the 5.25 can play say 80-300hz the 4in plays 315hz to 5khz and the tweets play 3.15khz and up.
