    Installing Logitech Z-560's into my vehicle

    Alright, I have been thinking about installing my Logitech Z-560's in my vehicle. First off, is this even worth the time and effort? I did a search and found one thread really downing it, but I wasn't sure that if with this 400w RMS system if that would be enough to overdo it. From the hardware standpoint, will a 12v to 120v convertor be my downfall?

    Not this again.....
    No, it's not worth the time and effort. PC speakers aren't desgined to fill the space in your car. They aren't designed for the harsh environment of your car.
    Get some decent speakers and a sub that are designed to be used in a vehicle. You'll be much happier.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    It was a simple question, so you all can kiss my fatass.

    What is a good entry level speaker set to go with?

    Go to your local stereo shop or even Crutchfield or CarDomain and see what fits your car.
    Or you can just buy some out of the back of a van in a WalMart parking lot. If you do that, we can't guarantee they'll fit.

    And your simple question could have been answered without all teh smart-*** comments by a simple search of the forums to locate one long-assed (and far more smart-assed) thread about the same subject.

    This is where we say search, n00b, search!

    fatmanmitch - you have to understand - this question has been beat into the ground. Because the OP in that other thread refused to listen it got to be pretty damn funny...this thread is essentially just a reincarnation of that thread....

    leme type something up for you regarding the entry level question real quick...

    What speakers/amps should I go withi?

    This is a question that is often asked by newcomers and veterans alike in the Car Stereo world.

    Many people want to get the best bang for their buck, which is completely understandable. However, these is not one set of speakers that will fit everyone’s needs.

    Building your system is much like building a computer. You buy a processor based on the capabilities of the motherboard. You wouldn’t buy an AMD processor for an Intel board. The memory you buy also depends on your motherboards capabilities. Same with the hard drives, if you’re mother board can take a SATA 3.0 hard drive, why would you just put an IDE drive on it?

    Imagine the motherboard as your requirements for sound. The processor, memory, and hard drives are all of the components of the stereo system. Then there’s the always present money issue.

    Some words of advice I can give you:

    • Stay with name brands. There’s something to be said about an amp that claims 3,000 watts of power with only a 20 amp fuse. (P = A x I x E [168 watts = 20 amps x 12 volts x 70% efficiency])
    • If a brand tends to make claims that are too good to be true, guess what? They probably are.
    • For a speaker, there are a few things to consider. What size opening do you have available in your car? What about depth? What about available power? What about money?
    • You don’t need to be so concerned with matching claimed amp power output with claimed speaker power handling. Just stay close to the speakers claimed requirements and you should be good.


    This is all I have for now, just woke up and not yet thinking completely coherent.
