    Have to agree with this. The SR component set is extremely well designed to reproduce the full spectrum of sound (except for sub bass), and does so on its own. Running the entry level DB speakers...

    If you haven't ordered your wiring yet, do so through www.knukonceptz.com Same stuff obviously but the shipping is a few bucks cheaper on their website than through amazon.

    In theory, they may be able to, if they're in the proper enclosure. But, if you're not also changing out the amp to deliver that 100 watts RMS of additional power, you're most likely going to see a...

    Stick with the stock wire runs for what you're doing. Factory wire only needs to be bypassed if it is old/problematic, or if you're running serious quantities of power. For the wiring, I highly...

    I would suggest the paperclip method, but with something a little more stout than a paperclip. Pick up a cheap pick set and carefully pull the grille back out.

    Honestly, unless you have money that you just don't want, you're spending it unnecessarily. Unless you have an extremely long run of speaker wire from your amp to your subs, 8 gauge is pretty...

    You could do what you're describing, but there's really no point. Strip back your wire insulation, section off 1/2 to 1/3 of the exposed copper, and cut it off, then you'll be able to fit two wires...

    This times a million. Insanely good quality and service, as well as super fast shipping. I cautiously ordered from them for the first time about a year ago, and was so impressed with the quality to...

    I don't have nearly the experience that others do on here, so bear that in mind. Every kicker tweeter I've listened to, be it coaxial or component, has been unnecessarily harsh. They fatigue the ear...

    I didn't even realize it, but those pictures that I posted actually do make it look like the grille sits flush with the enclosure. It actually doesn't. I have a good 5/8" gap between the enclosure...

    So the claims that a capacitor will be very rough/demanding on the charging system aren't really true?

    Also, do I need to take any caution given that I've had this for about five years and never...

    Do you need a capacitor?

    From the reading I've done, this almost always spurs quite the debate. I have a 5 farad capacitor that I'm trying to decide whether or not to include in my install. The stuff I'm setting up includes:...

    My multimeter could probably use a calibration, but it appears that the woofer alone presents a 2.0 ohm load, rather than the 2.7 that the whole setup is rated for.

    Ok after that I got curious, so...

    Honestly I think you'd get much better sound if you retained the higher quality crossover and tweeter. The MM woofer honestly won't be too bad of a substitute for the SR, but the other components I...

    I mean if I were you, I'd use the MM woofers since that's the best available, but keep the tweets and crossovers if they're good, instead of downgrading from the SR to MM. The MM's are good no doubt,...

    If it's just the woofers crackling, I would highly suggest replacing just those. I know the SR crossovers are huge, and the tweeters pretty much unbeatable. Just a thought if you want to retain the...
