Budget 6.5/ Now car audio advice thread

Postby Jeremy09 » October 7th, 2021, 4:57 pm

Uncle doing an upgrade to his front doors
He has some nb1 tweeters already.
Am using this term figuratively for the ones who had experience with different midrange/midbass speakers.
Whats he loudest and most tonal pro audio 6.5" that he can get in 4ohm around 125-150rms on a budget?

Yeah, I got the impression that it was new speakers he was looking for. If it's strictly pro audio then the above mentioned Faital Pro 6fe200s are a good option and they're under budget. I would advise against the use of pro audio speakers in a car but that's just what some people know and accustomed to. For the speakers you can contact Rovin, I believe I saw him advertising them on his FB page.

I need them to be 4ohm configuration. Fitals are 8ohm. Was looking into timpano mr6 bullet or the deafbouce Sylvester. Wondering which will be more tonal but able to get loud cleanly

op occasionally buys stuff from me & knows about my 4ft x 12ft long mids speakers demo wall so i guess he just asking opinions of others which i have no problem with

yrs ago i used to carry 4 ohm faitals fe200 speakers but 99% of customers want to bridge 2 8ohm speakers for max loudness from their amp so i only carry 8ohm

in 4 ohm loud mids i have powerbass xl , orion cobalt & timpano mb slim, i wont lie & say any is world's loudest but they sound good to me ... :| .... taste is subjective so anybody can come listen to them in my demo wall & choose what they like

Best thing you could have done. Get rid of those nb1. And some full range speakers that could handle the lower frequencies if you don't have a sub. A lite sound deadening on the doors and you good.

Yes, he has a sub. I personally dont like the nb1, really stabbs up your ear. Umm i believe he wants to keep them soo is juat some 6.5s in the door. Am leaning towards the deafbounce sylvesters, $800 a pair.

It should be decent given that they are a pretty efficient set. That's just my opinion

Hossie, I went from awful pro mids speakers to a set of C1.My zesser neighbor practically begged me to sell him it.I thought those were good.The C2 is a whole different ball game.I am still playing around with tweeter location, but my ears are very happy.No noticeable difference in the woofer,but the change from aluminum to silk dome tweeters is amazing.
I used to have the older version of the C2 in my Ek3 some years ago.Did not realize how much I missed them
On a slightly negative note, solder your wires to the woofer,the terminals kinda easily bendable when you using the spade terminals

Well i going from stock (10 year old paper cone) to the C2...so i know it gonna be an improvement

I was actually gonna make over new connectors as i bought some tinned copper spade terminals for that purpose
Or have some XT30 connectors
If i'm forced to solder, i will use those on the inside if the door

I cant, unfortunately
Door internals has some surface rust i need to attend to, so i hold up on the sound deadening for now
But i already have a box of xfire pro mat and a roll of siless CC foam for when the vehicle comes from repainting.....hopefully in early 2022
