View Full Version : 1987 Buick Regal Speakers
08-04-2001, 11:14 PM
I have a 1987 Buick Regal (2 dr) that I want to put Polk speakers into. Unfortunately, an NHRA-required roll bar that went through the factory speaker holes. This was no big loss since they were 4 X 10s. Any suggestions for speakers and placement? Money is an object, but I believe I can afford whatever Polk products would be suggested. I presently have a 60W per channel Blaupunkt amp, but an upgrade is certainly possible since it is 14 years old.
I would suggest first determining the location for your new speakers, and then the size of the enclosure that the interior will
accommodate. If you want to use a coaxial speaker that is going to be powered by an external amp, then look at the dx series or our MOMO component systems. Build the enclosure out of 3/4 inch MDF and seal all interior seams with a silicone caulking.
Requirements for the new amplifier... look for a power rating of 100 to 150 Watts per cahnnel for the speakers. If you plan on adding a subwoofer, then look for a power rating of 500 to 800
Watts. Make sure that the amplifiers have built-in crossovers and set them somewjere between 80 to 90 Hertz. If you need some assistance in designing a box for one of our subs, or have any other questions let us know and we will be glad to help. You can reach us at 800-377-7655 between the hours of 9 AM to 6 PM Eastern time Monday through Friday.

I'm trying to figure out the best combination of Polk speakers that will FIT and sound good in a car that cover the quarter mile in less than 11 seconds. In other words, I want to go fast and sound good and I need specifics (i.e., model numbers).
