PC Speakers in CAR Audio
ok lets face it... my car didnt come with stero fitted in nor any arrangement for the the speakers nor any wiring to do so...
i bought alpine cd player with amp... and have a spare harman kardon 2.1 40W speaker... if i connect them in car... WHY?
firstly i will avoid the cost of wiring.... and im more concerned about the modifications.... such as adding a dash board at rear to support speakers over the CNG Cylinder.... i have Suzuki Mehran... secondly if i do so, the rear dont look good as there are no professionals nor any fine addon parts to do so...
so im left with two options
i. to connect my HK695... give good sound in room, i know the woofer will not be "woofing" in car that much, but hey place rad surface beneath and it will work, well satelites are easy to place almost any where....
ii. buy a pair of small desktop speakers with wooden case and 4 Ohm impedace and connect directly to cd system... will require some place to adjust... or
iii. buy a pair of car rear speakers and put them in box... well experience says those speakers are designed to resonate with the back cabin and once the cabin is defined or limited, the sound quality is also affected... since i dont have a back trunk in car i cant get a good sound out of them.....
need help and advice.... please also suggest how will i adjust the input power, inverter? or otherwise since the speakers amp runs of 12V, however the input is 120V... ill take additional power form cigerrete lighter with ofcourse safety precautions
a member of our forums has his computer sound coming through the logitech zx series speakers and it sounds AMAZING. I say go for it if thats the route you want to take
yeah... but what things i should take care of.... as in is 40W power enough to give reasonable sound in the car plus how to couple the 240 V with 12 V.... do i also need to take care about AC and DC...
One major issue with speakers not designed for a vehicle being used in a vehicle is mounting.
You don't want the speakers to be not bolted down. One panic stop and you've got a hi-fidelity missile whizzing across the interior space of your vehicle. If they rest on your package shelf, then they are just about a the level of your cranium, and could cause some significant head injuries or even death.
I'm sure you don't want your benefactor(s) telling everyone you know that you've become a vegetable because you were hit in the back of the head with a computer speaker.
You'd be brain-dead and humiliated.
lol, thats just plain stupid.

ok... i understand those hazards... i had planned to put the woofer under the seat failrly secured... anyways alot many people are gainst the placing of pc speakers, so what options do i have... i dont have a proper place to install speakers and i cant bolt a board at back and the install on them ... really not look coool... and the satellite speakers are pretty small to adjust in.... the thin is in my small car of those of the kind dont have much space, so it would be reasonable to place a 2.1 in car instead of simple speakers that require rear trunk to create the beats..... as i have repeated i only need a reasonable sound off my speakers....

either to use the stellite speakers of 5.1 system easily available through second hand markets
or custom buid in a wooden box....
IS THAT REASONABLE?????
i will test my Harmon Kardon 2.1 speakers, before installation and willl quote here on how they sound inside the car this weekend... of course the car wont be running since i have to plug them onto a 220 source
but atleast i would know how they sound....
