Re: finding the right speakers

Dude, the other guy who answerd you first doesnt know s@$t. Infinity has a clean crisp 6X9. Take a pick in your price range, The solution is to put the 6x9 in this foam like casing that keeps the sound from distorting with your subs in the trunk.DO NOT start cutting holes and throwing insubs in yor rear window area, That is ghetto s@#it., Other 6x9 I recomens, Kickers, Mephis Audio and they will give you bore bass though, As far as componets keep them in your front doors and if you really want a good I idea, your backseat has a folding center arm rest. Perfecy size area for a sealed 4 way 6x9. But dont use it for bass, a nice mid sound and tweer.

I have a 12" d4 type r 1000 rms and a alpine 1000 amp speaker sounds great but smells like something is burning, my amp never over heats or shuts down but the smell is still coming from the sub?

Cut your gain back on the amp. It sounds like they are set too high. Check your install instructions on how to set your gain. If you have a 4 or 5 volt output head unit your will not be at half way. Im running a JL Audio 500 /1 on a skar wwv10 dvc in a ported box. My gain is set about half way & its plenty loud.I have a Alpine 9887 headunit 5 volt output on my RCAsI can take a volt meter & set my speaker output at 45amps & my gain in perfect.

The bass in my Sony 3-way 6X9 speakers wont work

if these speakers are several years old, chances are that the left one is just blown. could be a loose wire, but if not, it would be cheaper to get new speakers than to get that one fixed

The wattage rating, I take it, for the speakers is more than 45 watts right? Check to make sure that you connected the right wires to each speaker,front right + wire to front right speaker, not front right +, to front left + and make sure that the -'s are connected to the -'s, and the +'s are connected to the +'s.

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...

You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

Whats the best alpine 6x9? dds-r69g,sps-6939,spr or others

All of these work nice, remember the quality of the sound depends primarily on the source ( car stereo and/amp) and then the speakers, you need to know what Ohm and what watt is the minimum requirement for your sound system.

Stock speakers with HK Business head unit. speakers sound lousy, any after market speakers you could recommend to replace stock?

Hello sharkdc0529,

I'm not familar with the HK Business head unit, and could not find such in an online search. I thought it might be "Harman-Kardon" but struck out again. Anyway, most stock speakers will sound lousy with an aftermarket head unit. Take a look at the typical factory speaker (top photo) and an Infinity aftermarket speaker (bottom photo) on this page. There's a world of difference in the materials and construction.

In addition to Infinity, I recommend Alpine, Kicker, and Rockford-Fosgate. You'll also find that Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony make some excellent sounding speakers at very reasonable prices.

You'll need to know the size of the stock speakers and replace them with the same size. Also, be aware that most aftermarket speakers have larger baskets and magnets and will therefore have more "depth". Make sure you have ones that fit or that you have an appropriate adapter.

Hope this helps.

Brand New Speakers Distorted and not right...

Are you still using the same head unit? You could try to run a short set of new wire to one of the speakers directly from the unit. Had you previously used these speakers in another vehicle...what I'm getting at is that you need to isolate the problem. If the speakers test fine in another vehicle, I would think there is something wrong with the existing head unit
