    Default Help me pick out new speakers!

    This should be a fun thread for you VW fans out there.

    I just picked up a nice 1992 Corrado, and the Infinity system from the early '90's just doesn't cut it for this ride. I'm looking for :

    1. Good definition,
    2. Clarity without harshness
    3. Durability

    The current system I have running involves a mini pc with a 7'' touch screen running Windows XP and StreetDeck as the front end app. I use Windows Media Player for the moment to play DVD's, and a wireless keyboard/mouse to input navigation and such. The install would be a simple one, but the speakers that came with the car just ain't cutting it for me. call me crazy. I had some MOMO's in my previous car, liked those a lot, but just want other options.
    I also have a budget at the moment given the current economic situation, so i'm not opposed to going with a different brand other than Polk's. (can i say that here?) I know that i'm going with a 10'' DB sub, but other than that, i have been wanting more input from people. I've included some pics. Fire away!

    you can use a 3 way comp

    i would use that extra space to fit a nice 3 way system

    i like this one



    its the Hi-Energy 3 way from Hertz, model HSK 163

    so, put the mid range drivers, on the dashboard and the tweeters and woofers on the door
