Re: BA XR6 Ute Speaker size

Im looking around the board and i just saw 5x7 mentioned for the rear ones, is that correct and are the front ones the same size?

Matt

5x7 all round, yep.

If you're thinking of upgrading the speakers, don't limit yourself to 5x7s. There's heaps of room for more popular sizes. :)

6" splits in the front, 6x9's in the rear and feel the rumble behind you with crystal clear linearity between 250Hz and 8kHz in the front. But that's just me.

Damn i love this board, so quick.. thanks

"There's heaps of room for more popular sizes. :) "

Thanks DisTurboed, thats good to know:)

" 6" splits in the front, 6x9's in the rear and feel the rumble behind you with crystal clear linearity between 250Hz and 8kHz in the front. But that's just me "

smick_ba, That crystal clear linearity, will that be there if the speakers are merely replaced or is some fancy gear needed to be added? ie: Is the stock head unit good enough quality to achieve what you mentioned?

I ask because i have a set of Boston rally 6.5's -you think they would fit in the front? What speakers do you have in yours mate?

cheers,
Matt

Roona,


if u do a search on ba sounds you will find several threads on this subject, I think the head unit is good enough with replacement speakers in the doors and rear if you dont NEED serious base, if you do have the need then you have some options, try doing a search and if you want more info get back to me.

cheers

Re: BA XR6 Ute Speaker size

6.5s should fit in the door ok. If not, it shouldn't be too hard to modify to suit.

I've got 6" 3 ways in the front, and 6x9" 3 ways in the rear. Sounds super.


When I saw the space in the rear cavity, it occured to me that there may be room for 2 10" subs in there, maybe even 12s. That is, 2 in each side.
4 10" subs would be nice...

Re: BA XR6 Ute Speaker size

Bloodnut, no worries, i have done a few searches but i will do some more detailed ones using what you suggested, thanks red -i may just take you up on that offer of more info


DisTurboed, sounds good, i will put the Boston rally's up front and throw some Boston 6x9's in the rear. I agree there is space for subs behind but merely replacing the stockies will keep me happy for a bit (not long, but hopefuly a little while) lol

Thanks guys, cya round

Re: BA XR6 Ute Speaker size

Roona,


I have 7 in splits (cerwin-vega) in the front which fit no problem, made up a metal plate and they just fitted in the hole without cutting any factory metal away.

You can put 6x9's in the rear but because in the ute the rear speakers are up high and close to your ear u will find that they dominate the sound field and this creates an imbalance.

the answer is to fit subbies in the rear as they have a more spread sound field and dont override the fronts. I tried to fit 10 inch subbies in the rear but it would have required butchering the standard set-up, so I went with 2 polk 8 inch subbies powered by a 120w rms amp.

Cheers

Did it take much modifying to fit the subbies??

How are you running the amp?

Thanks
