just curious but cheap sq oriented system?

Postby altec » January 23rd, 2011, 5:04 pm

what is the cheapest an sq oriented system can go for? The wife's speakers flapping in the fielder so I am thinking change. I have an old PIONEER PREMIER DEH-750MP which should be functional so could that be a good start? She wants everything looking bone stock which means no sub or tweets. The up side is there are speakers on all doors. She like my system but she not spending 6000 fo an amp.

I am feeling to just replace the speakers with (your suggestion here) and leave everything else.

I really did not think of budget just cheap as possible sq. She is not into finer points of sq but likes tonality; staging, height etc means little to her. music is low enough to carry on a conversation 90% of the time but it is on all the time so it should not fatigue the ears.

Orion Cobalt Coaxials actually give some good results for the price... also I have a pair of MB quart 4" Premium comps up for sale (made in Germany not China). They are component but can be converted to coax. PM me if you interested in it

i got the impression that this was a simple system, why recommend 3way?

altec a simple pair of coax installed great in your doors will make a great difference.
Even a budget component set etc installed Well will make the world of difference.

The emphasis here is all about the install as usual

because they also have 3 way passive crossovers to choose from , starting from around $150 or so lol

that's the most expensive thing there lol, after that speakers does be -$100 and thing, and they actually sound good lol

$1000 can get you a full 3 way set lol

sometimes actually listening to a speaker's response is the better way to judge what's right for you

i listed to a nippon america extended range 4" driver, and it sounded pretty natural and full from 100hz to around 6k or so price was $75/side or $150/pair

also had the chance to play some audiopipe silk domes, not the imitation hat one, and they were very smooth and well controled , best of all, they were not too bright $85/pair

but what i was most impressed with was the 6.5" replacement woofer for $$120, it actually sounded full, and clean, and it was underhung and was very responsive $240 for the pair

so-
240 +150 + 85 = $475 on speakers alone

the most you spending on a 3 way passive is $250 per side, and for that you can get ready made, or make your own

i think i may undergo this project unno, might be nice to see the results afterward for cheap speakers

cheapest way out would be 4 coaxials on the 4 doors run off your deck and talk done.powerbass has a small nice coaxial that actually sounds great at $150 or so a pair.so $300 on speakers and wire them on each of the four channels on the pio deck and your good to go.

Agreed with coaxials, and a put together passive three way with generic crossovers is something I would advise against.

almost all powersellers in the audio classifies have decent coaxials for around 500.00 a pair
anybrand u decide to go with will work pretty good
JBL
DLS
powerbass
Mb quart
hifonics
etc

if u feeling for a little extra work...use some dynamat
