CakeOD - There's been some discussion in other threads about replacing the 6x9s. Unfortunately, they're kind of an oddball size and hard to find replacements for.

Also, the Vifa NE65W is another common upgrade for the HK system, but I'm not sure how you fit it.

IIRC, the HK speaker mounts from the back, so the magnet doesn't have to fit through the hole.

It seems to work. I chose the FR58EX because I have the non-HK system, and my mids are 8 ohms. The HK mids are 3 ohms, so a 4 ohm would be a closer match, but 8 will still work. fishercs says they...

The TB subs have enough throw relative to power handling that they can probably do without having the backs enclosed.

If you're willing to cut, though, the Tang Band 5.25 subwoofer (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0066AYMPW) is a fantastic way to go in the back. That way you don't lose any trunk space to the sub. Also, if...

In general, you'll get much better performance/$ with speakers that aren't explicitly made for car use. On the rear shelf, I would put only subwoofers. If you're willing to cut and can make them fit,...

Cheechman7, how did you fit the DC160-4 in the door? I have the RS150-4 drivers in my car, and they barely fit.

Re: Ideas for in cabin sub-woofer for the sealed sedan

Different size subs being tight or loose is bunk. It all has to do with the Q of the system. The 6.5 in subs I had in my Saab played plenty low, but were a bit loose because of the enclosure (which...

Re: Infinity Kappa 60.11CS or DD cs6.5?

I don't think the cs6.5 will fit diameter wise, and I doubt any 3d-printed mount would be strong enough. Most 3d-printed things I've seen have been cleanly shaped, but brittle.

Re: Infinity Kappa 60.11CS or DD cs6.5?

Are you talking about cutting the door frame, or are you thinking of the rear deck? The rear deck is doable and I've seen good DIYs, but I wouldn't want to cut metal in the doors. I would be afraid...

Yes, you do get about 10dB of attenuation, which is appropriate given then 4-8ohm difference from the Vifa mid to the Fountek mid.

Re: Best price/performance mid bass speaker for e46 coupe

The Dayton woofer is hard to fit (at least in a wagon) because it has too much mounting depth. I did it, but it was not easy by any stretch. The Vifa tweeter looks like it might fit nicely, but it...

So, how does it sound to your ears?

Also, maybe you can fit a pair of Peerless SDS-160F25PR01-08 as subwoofers.

Re: Best price/performance mid bass speaker for e46 coupe

I don't see how that's an answer. Does Crutchfield sell mounting hardware?

Also, given the response characteristics of the Fountek midrange, you might just want to skip the tweeter entirely in the HK system.
