Default Re: Should I or shouldn't change my OEM speakers

Monday I took the unfortunate task of trying to Install my Alpine Type R in my rear Doors and my Infiniti 5100 in the front doors. I didnt bother to take pictures because it was utter fail.

Taking the rear door panel off (passenger side) was a pain, didnt break a clip but struggle near the outer rim of the door by the weather stripping. Once Removed. The OEM speaker disassembly was quite easy. Now the of the Alpine resulted in cutting the OEM speaker clip and splicing the wire.

Anywho, long story short, Installed the Alpine in the door and with glee decided to try a CD (a good CD) The sound was garbage! sounded like a 1990s Boom box (all treble, no bass and I did check the settings) Compared to the OEM speakers, the alpines through OEM cd player and no Amp was sh*t.

So as it turns out. My type R are pushing 35 Watts RMS (more then what the OEM Cd can give). Didnt bother installing the Infiniti since they are pushing 45 watts RMS. So the only way to mediate this problem is to buy another CD player and a 4 channel AMP (prob an MTX 100 Watt per channel) So all in all its going to have to wait till next year.

But thanks clinton for the info, at least i have it for next time

lol we spent 2 and a half hours on one speaker. We tried wiring it differently, The type R even has wire connectors on either side so we tried each side separately and then both sides together, both yielded similar results and the speaker is not blown, we even tried both Alpines, FAIL lol. will have to invest in that sounds system (perhaps the OEM Pionneer the had a few years back in the ranger (240 Watts I believe) would be a good investment?) and perhaps an amp if I go after market. Kind of disappointed of how it turned out but at least it will coax me into revamping the whole system the right way . Might have to wait a year to do it. A new Windshield is more right now
