  • 2-way speaker for car

    Anybody know of a 2-way speaker design I could use to put in my van?
    The head unit is a 50 watt stereo.

    Normally auto installs are suggested to be closed box, but I'll bet a pair of Overnight Sensations would sound pretty good in a space as large as a van (assuming you're not talking about door or pillar installs).

      I've often wondered about this myself. What is in my car door is essentially the "tributes" my brother built for indiyana. Sb-mfc 6.5" woofers and sb tweeters. I used crossovers from a set of Polk db6501 components that are modified slightly.

          And you should be able to fit a Pecorino in almost any place

            Important application notes from Zaph on this system:
            "This system should not be considered a full range system, and will require an active crossover to a subwoofer. By design the woofer is closer to a midrange and in a automotive environment it does not have the excursion to cover the whole spectrum without the help of a subwoofer.

              So, I tried the Classix II in my van and WOWZERS!
              It had all the bass plus some!

              I am going to finish a pair of Overnight Sensations and try them out in there..

                If you are installing speaker boxes in your vehicle make sure you properly mount them (fixed). Speaker boxes can easily turn into lethal projectiles in an automotive environment if not mounted with integrity.
