PostSubject: Wagon Speaker Question....   Wed Jun 02, 2010 12:26 pm

I blew one of the factory speakers in the wag today. It is one of the door ones. ANyways, I want to replace all 4 with something better. Im on crutchfield and found a nice pair of Polks for the front. THe matching speakers for the back are way more than I want to spend. Is is ok to use say Polk's in the front and kenwood's in the back?

Crutchfeild sucks.Overpriced older stuff.
EBAY search.Will turn up much better prices for same model.
Speakers ideally should be same brand/model.front and rear.
My opinion. your results may vary.

^^ that was kinda my point^^
Sure its nice to match tone & have them work perfectly together.
But I dont think you'll notice a difference mixing & matching
Top end stereo equipment requires a DR's degree in accoustics

I got killer deals on eBay and Amazon for my MB Quart 6.5" separates and 6x9's for my wagon. Do some searching. I have less than 120 bucks total for both pairs. Wink

Go with a 5.25" or 6.5" in the front door instead of the lame-o 4x6's that are in there now, too. You'll be happy you did.

Will they fit without modification? I take it i'll need bigger brackets?

Ok, went to ebay to look for the Polk's I want. They are $10 cheaper for the fronts and $20 cheaper for the back.

Thoughts on these? Also, since its ebay I wont get any of the "free" install crap that i'd get from Crutchfield. To install these into the car what am I going to need? I've done plenty of decks but never speakers. Is it hard?
