Radio Speakers


Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Boxster with CD player. Bottom speakers only emit bass sounds. This makes me think they are woofers. BUT, radio has a balance control to send more sound to them and less the top speakers. This seems strange as this is usually done only with full range speakers. Am I confused?

the speakers on the doors are sub woofers and only emit bass. It can be adjusted via bass control or left right balance.

the two speakers on the left (dash and door) and the two speakers on the right (dash and door) operate as single full-range speakers, except split into two components (speakers). so you get highs and mids from the dash speaker, and lows from the door speakers. if you use the balance function to move all the sound to one side, it will sound *louder* than if you had them perfectly balanced L+R. i don't think the balance function is actually controlling the dash speaker separate from the door speaker (unless you have some crazy-a$$ radio that i'm not aware of). ;)

The balance adjustment goes from left to right.

The fader adjustment goes from rear to front.

The door speakers are actually mid-range subwoofers.

I replaced the door speakers with normal full range speakers, which required some rewiring, and new speakers. It sounds a lot better, but I have significatly less bass.

OK I figured this out with everyones help. Speakers in door are woofers. Fader reduces volume to mid and tweeters in order to send to rear speakers. (Woofers are non directional)...but car does not have rear speakers!!!!!!

So I get this unusual effect I discussed earlier.

Solution....leave fader at 0 or buy rear speakers.
