speaker dimensions?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on upgrading the speaker system. Does anyone know the speaker dimensions for both the door and the dash?

also wondering if anyone had component combination suggestions...

Gracias in advance

I just upgraded to a Pioneer 850 with two power amps, a 4x55 watt Rockford for the dash & rear package shelf, and a 2x75 watt for the doors. The dash speakers are 4" with a small tweeter, and the door speakers, if your car already has the single door speakers, is 5-1/4". The factory dash speakers are 4 ohm and the door speakers are 2 ohm.

Right now I'm using the factory dash and package shelf speakers but I replaced the door midbass with Rockfords. I think I'm going to replace all the speakers with MB Quart, they're really the best ones. For amps I like Precision Power, Rockford and Hifonics. For head units I like Pioneer and Alpine. Also, if you like going on a road trips, XM Radio is real nice.

Thanks! What about the optional rear speakers? I'm assuming they're 4" but that's just kind of a wild guess...

The system I'm thinking about installing:

Eclipse AVN2454 2-DIN navigation/CD/DVD/MP3 player replacing both the stock head unit and the useless cupholder in the upper console

MB Quart RCE-210 4" 2-way component / coaxial system with .75" tweeter (Dash)

MB Quart RWE-130 5.25" midrange drivers (doors)

PNP rear speaker kit (for now, probably will replace these with the MB Quart Diskus series speakers)

I may keep the amp from the factory, or I may upgrade to something like the Infinity Reference 7540a (139 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms) for the doors and dash. I also may decide I don't really think it's worth two grand for a head unit even if it does play DVDs and have navigation, and maybe go with something like the Kenwood KDC-MP6025 CD/MP3/WMA Receiver and add a music-keg for mp3 storage. Lots of options here if I decide I don't want navigation.

Hi there, I am looking to change out my speakers on my 2001TT.

Looks like most people like the MB Quartz. My stock unit has the DSP equalizer and I think I will stay with this, so I just plan to change out the speakers front and back.

Can someone list the MB Quarts models that will "bolt" right in?

Also if there is another brand that works good I would be open to these...

Thank you!
