hey, im looking to mount some spaekaers in my doors and im not really sure what to get. i would prefer a 4 inch because the have 4 mounting holes compared to the 2 for the 3.5 either way, they would need to have a grill because i dont want them just out in the open on my doors. any input would help, thanks.
Well, I had (have)some powerbass 3.5 in my dash. They sounded great for about a week, then 1 tweet popped and smoked and a week later the other one went, and now they both sound like crap, like they are blown, so any way I too am looking for new 3.5 speakers. I suppose the power bass would be ok if they were amped with @ 20-30watts, I had @ 40 watts going to em and they smoked. They were rated for 35wrms, so I may trade them in for a new pair and run em at 25wrms and see what happens.
I had them hooked up to a Infinity REF7541A, 110watts rms, for when I had passengers in the back. While they would overdrive if I got crazy with the sound, they never let me down. It was, oops, too much, lemme back it down a tad and they would just chug along.
Well, by taking out some plastic, I was able to get a Power bass 4" in. For the price, they arent bad. But atleast I know I have more options now. I gonna see if I can sneek a 5 1/4 comp in and remote tweet instead of combined.
Well, Got another set of 3.5 Powerbass. Gonna put bass blockers on these ones and see if they last more then a few days. Also gonna put em on the Zapco at 30wrms. If they go again, Im thru with powerbass.
