I have noticed something like that with the stock speakers when I ride in the passenger seat. It is only at the higher volumes but it diffently isn't pleasent to the ears.CaliberTim said:I have the stock stereo/ single CD in my SXT. I mentioned in another post here that I replaced just the front door speakers with a pair of 6x9's from Eclipse (SE8495) The speakers sound great, but there is an abberation created by the speaker in the right front door. The highs directly hit my right ear with a great amount of harshness which cannot be totally EQ'd out. Amazingly, if I merely lean left or right in the driver's seat, the harshness disappears. It's just when I'm in the usual driving position that the sound annoys me. I wonder if the tweeter could be re-aimed somehow. Or I could move these speakers to the rear doors and put another type of 6x9's in the front door.
Any additional suggestions?
You should have kept the 6.5's and adapted them. round speakers ALWAYS sound better than oval. I am going to go with some 6.5 boston accoustic compnents in the front with the tweets mounted in the factory location. Probably boston coax's in the back.CaliberTim said:Dawson,
Welcome to the Caliber Club! Tell us about your new ride.
FYI - the doors take 6x9 speakers. I found this out when I went to have mine installed. I had chosen 6.5 speakers and had to exchange them. I suppose if you're really sold on those 6.5's you could make them fit with some extra cutting, that is if you don't mind slicing up your new Cali.
My one complaint is my sub box.. it IS my trunk - no room for pretty much anything. Planning on getting something alittle smaller, and maybe sealed. Im more of a rock fan and the ported box just isnt doing it for me.. so if anyone is looking for a ported MTX Bass Slammer box in the near future, PM me.From passenger side:
