Question Rear Speakers.

so i wanted to know the difference between the 5.25 speakers w/ grill kit and the other speakers that can be used in the front or rear? is it just the grill?

The rear speaker pods are lacking in depth. There are some speakers out there that are of either a low profile or have a smaller diameter magnet and will work. Some will use the stock cover where others work better with a different cover. With the small enclosure your also lacking in any kind of bass response for not being able to more some air around. The bass port kit helps some until you pack your TP full of stuff. Speaker extension rings can allow larger speakers but also create other challenges. Options, options, options.

There are tons of choices for the front.

that is correct ,,, the 5.25" speakers for the rear pod position must have a smaller magnet structure, like the Neodymium magnets we use on the J&Ms to clear the inside of the read pod boxes ,,

After you install J&M or other speakers, what do you do with the factory speakers? Black09inOK Do-IT-Yourself 6 10-01-2010 01:53 AM
