If you wire TWO 8-ohm speakers in PARALLEL, you'll bring the impedance down to 4 ohms.
it's really ghetto...lol
I hope to have time over spring break to redo it...haven't updated it since I finished..heh
wow! I did not know that!
now working on my Dodge Dak
toshiba portege == done
audigy2 NX == done
7" flush mount == 0%
pimp rating == 48%
I'm currently running a pair of 4.5" vifa midbass's in each kickpanel along with a CDT tweeter. Sound is awesome for inexpensive drivers, but the mounting depth is not fiberglassed kickpanel friendly. the things are huge...
Okay well I have been thinkin also puttin house speakers in the car.
My sitution is that I have a awsome pair of KEF Q series floor standing speakers.
I mean I love these speakers but KEF does not make car audio speakers anymore.
I know I will need more power as the speakers are most likely 8 ohm. Now the
speakers are obviousily built for the encloser. From what I understand this speaker has like five different chambers with different materials in each (foam.ect).
So i am asuming i wouldnt mount it free air because it woul probably sound like ****.
So I was thinkin i would just fiberglass a box or pod around the speaker.
Do you think I should make the fiberglass encloser as close to the cubic space volume as the origanal.
Here is a link to the actual drivers of my speakers on ebay.
Home audio speakers are not built with the durability needed to withstand an automobile environment. ... Not only that, but "good" home audio speakers require tuned cabinets... were as car audio isnt so sensitive to the enclosure.. etc etc.
And on top of all this, car audio speakers, are cheaper than home audio.
Im running a stack of 4 6-1/2 alpines topped wtih a 4" alpine in each of my home audio towers.. why.. because the sound to $ ratio is higher with car audio.
99 ram 5.9 turbo
P4 2.0, MicroATX, Audigy2nx, Monster Cable / Alpine.
Coming soon: Indash motorized, 5.1, dvdrw, gps, bluetooth, wifi, and more!
ya I understand the speaker cabnet design for home speakers I was just wondering what was involved in getting them to sound good enough to use.
I dont know if you read the thread but home speakers can be used in cars if done right and that is what I am trying to find out.
no offense TimW but you cant expect me to a man seriously who has car stereo speakers for home audio use.
But i do apreciate the input but read the thread before you post not just read
the last post and respond .
I Think i am grumpy sorry..well kinda..not really
Why mount Home speakers that normaly is in need of a "big box"
Im thinking more like a complete 7,1 Sorround system its small and complex.
And a built in Amp also..
Small elements for mounting in the doors.
Stabilisate the 12v and rock on =) ?!?
Yes bad english sorry!
