Speakers Mounted - Dash, D and Doors
I just finished installing 2 sets of 3.5" Infinity's in the dash and in the D pillar.
I gotta say it makes a huge difference! The sound is much more clear, crisp and well rounded. I do have an Infinity Sub in the back too but I still hear the rear speakers enough to round out the sound. Very impressed and very easy to do thanks to the info on this forum!
On another note.
I swapped the drivers side stock speaker for a 6.5" Boston Acoustic. After removing the stock speaker and looking at the tiny little magnet on the back and the paper cone I was expecting big things from the BA however, I was dissapointed. Once everything was installed on the drivers side I gave it a test run to make sure it was working before starting the passenger side and I thought I screwed something up. The sound was very weak and not at all full like the stock speaker.
I played with the balance switching from drivers side to passenger, since the passenger speaker had not been swapped yet, and the difference was remarkable. Better sound from the stock speaker! I still have the BA in the drivers door b/c I want to give it a fair chance and see if perhaps I screwed something up or if this is to be expected. This is the first time ever that I have switched from a stock speaker to an aftermarket and had the sound not improve. Perhaps someone can shed some light on this for me. I am running the speakers from my Alpine head unit.
