i finally hooked up my component amp a couple days ago. i only did the passenger front door and am about to do the drivers. i deadened pretty much the whole entire door with edead 45. ran brand new 16 awg stinger hyper hpm speaker wire. and reinstalled the 5 1/4 alpine type s coax.
the amp is a kicker 08zx200.4, and i also ran some brand new rca's. i also switched them back with my old ones to see if it sounded better.
no matter how i adjust the settings on the amp and deck, it just sounds like complete $hit....
what the hell is the problem? what am i doing wrong?? please help..
DLS is a great choice. Im running the MS6A 6.5 comps in my truck and they are great. Nice sounding tweets,they are not too harsh but still get plenty loud and the mids are just awesome! You can not go wrong with anything from DLS but here is a link to the ones Im running only mine are 6.5
Polo are you asking how loud the DLS comps are? If you are then you should probably look into a different set. The DLS tweets are not all that loud/harsh. I actually like a "harsh" tweet myself but the DLS are ok for me,for now anyways. Dont get me wrong the DLS comps are very very nice sounding and are very clear but I usually prefer a metal or titanium tweet. Like the Infinity Kappa Perfect comps,now those are LOUD! My next comp set will probably be the JBL MKII Ive been wanting to try them out for a while.
BTW where have you been Polo? I have not seen you around for a long time!
i have dls 6x9s and they honstly sound better than components costing 200 or more. blows away some sets at 300 easily as well. and they are very very smooth sounding. and they can really crank.i dont need them and i wouldnt mind sellin them
Been busy with work and other hobbies lol. When I say loud I mean as in still sounding good but at a much higher volume level, never like harshness. DLS has the Nobellium series (sp) but they are quite pricey. I'm looking for a set of three ways and a set of 6x9's for a little of mid enforcement not really looking for imaging lol. The two 10's and the strapped saz 1500's will take care of the lows. Not to bad for a mini cooper haha.
Polo,I say go with a set of 3 ways from DLS. They are well worth the money. The DLS sound great no matter what. I think they are just what you are looking for. If you go with a 3 way set you will not need the 6x9s,trust me. DLS mids are by far the best I have ever heard. They have plenty of mid bass and yet still sound good. My mids sound great and they are just installed in the factory locations with no deadening or anything. The tweets are very detailed and get plenty loud too.
