hello,

i'm in need of some news peakers for my '95 sentra GLE
i was thinkin' bout these Boston Acoustics NX67 6.5" Coaxial Car Speaker link http://www.tweeter.com/product/inde....1124550.1124481&sublevel=2&parentPage=family

would it be best to get 4 of these or 2 and get 2 other speakers

maby the BAs in the front

and CLARION SRR1635 3-way speakers 6.5" for the rear?

also, would the boston aucustics work with the sentra? it only has 3 screw holes.....

thanx

are you planning on amping these? or just running them off of Head Unit power? If you are planning on amping them, spring for a set of components. Head unit power will be fine for coaxials, but it would be a waste to amp those

Btw, up front, the sentra only has 3 mounting screws. But as with most speakers on the market, you may need to drill new holes for the screws.

yea i'm going to be ampin' them

and i want some midbass and such
dont want the people mile away hear me coming but just want strong bass. if 6.5 cant do it than i guess i'll have to kill trunk space
i also want very good clarity

this is the head unit coming in: Pioneer DEH-P8600MP http://www.tweeter.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1830896&cp=1124288.1124546.1124466&page=2&doVSearch=no&pageBucket=0&sublevel=2&parentPage=family

so i need excellent quality speakers to go with it

thanks

i guess 2 sets of different speakers? 2 way front, 3-way rear?

i dont know, help me out guys/gals

have you already ordered that head unit? If not, look at the P860MP, its a little bit nicer than the 8600. Its good that you will be amping the speakers. If you give me a budget i can recommend some products that have some nice midbass for your price range. Some products taht come to mind are:

Adire Koda 6.1 - $350
Elemental Designs eDi- $250
Image Dynamics CXS64 or CXS62 (4 ohm or 2 ohm version)- $300

the thing is with nice speakers you will get mid bass. now to get the low low end you will end up needing a sub some were. but as i have found out from these guys differant subs use differant size boxes. also you can design your own box that wont be deep but long, then you wont loose much trunk space but you will lose the use of your rear seat fold down. i secured my box to a piece of ply wood on the trunk floor with 2 hinges. that way if i want to use my trunk all i have to do is pop out the 2 hinge pins and diconnect my speaker lead. 1 min is all it takes! :cheers: but i bought my sub before i came here and now i am stuck with a massive box :(

akk! no lol pete2.0 has those and im not impressed. i say all you need would be one 10inch sub, which one ill leave for the others to decide because idk much and im not going to BS and answer and street you the wrong way. but some sub can use a smaller box than others.

i would get a 0 gauge kit. The Rockford fosgate kit has the same wiring as the Audiopipe kit off of darvex. Wire is wire.....0 gauge stinger wire isnt better than 0 gauge welding cable

ok, i'm gon start orderin' parts tomorrow, but i got couple questions

i'm gon get the pioneer AVIC-N1 nav system later so dont want to spend much on a HU that imma swap out

so it leaves me with several questions that if ya'll dont mind answerin' please....

1) i'm gon get the Stinger Multi-Amp 4 Gauge Amplifier Wiring Kit 1400 Watts but it doesnt say anything bout speaker wires so imma buy a roll of 50' (Stinger 12 Gauge Translucent Blue Speaker Wire 50' Roll) now is 12 guage good enough to have 200RMS running thru it? well gon wire speakers as 100RMS each channel.
2) is twisted that much of an improvement over regular? Stinger 12 Gauge Blue/Silver Twisted Speaker Wire is $12.50 more than regular wires for same 50'
3) since i'm plannin' on gettin' the nav system later (1-2 months), i was wonderin' can i use the stock HU with amps?. was thinkin' of jus usin' my mini-disc player (sony MZ-NH600D) thru cassette adapter until i get the new HU... or am i forced to purchase a new HU?

Home depot has wiring for residential (not welding or automotive) wire. You can get it there, but you need to know your cable gauge and just hunt for something. Also, much of the cable there is less stranded than the kind used in auto sound. While that makes no difference for the actual functionality of the cable, it can be very stiff and difficult to install. Look at sites for welding supplies. The cable they use is very flexible and cheap ($.60/foot for 4 ga)
