What he said.
Ok so I have to hook it up to either left or right front correct?
Sounds like you need to learn basic radio wiring.
Might want to google it. Most new radios come with detailed illustrated instructions as well.
The speaker that is the subject of this thread, has inputs for LEFT and RIGHT. If you have a speaker with only one set of inputs, it will not work in this application.
Where are the four holes you have to drill located? None go through the top of the dash do they?
No...the speaker is bolted to a seperate plate. That plate bolts up under the dash.
Ok, so the holes are drilled in the plate? I was looking at the same custom autosound speaker on cj pony parts website. There was one review and it was not good!
Yes...the holes are drilled in the plate. You can see the plate in the very first post. I have these speakers in two of my cars. I consider myself somewhat of an "audiophile". This speaker is AWESOME.
Thanks again Craig. Is the speaker you got from paddock the same custom autosound speaker that cj pony parts sells?
Never mind Craig I can see the custom autosound box in the picture in your first post.
You got it.
I also went on the CJ Pony Parts website and wrote my own review.
If one hooks up this speaker to a crappy head unit....one will get crappy sound.
I also recommend bass blockers. This speaker doesn't need any "bass" going to it. It can't reproduce the bass sounds, and could potentially blow the speaker without them. Some head units will allow you to custom blend and adjust the frequecies and will do the same thing. My Kenwood unit does that.
Well Craig, I'm going to use a factory ford pushbutton radio with 4 channel stereo. It looks exactly like the original am radio that came in the car which I like. The radio is out of an 82 bronco. I have some 6X9 pioneers for the back. I'll see how it sounds and if it sounds like crap maybe I'll add some sort of amp/equalizer to fine tune it. Today I was thinking it would be really cool to find an old school pyramid equalizer like alot of us had as teenagers. Going for the old school look. The pushbuttons are blowing my kids minds!
Ouch, it didn't seem like THAT long ago.
(Nearing seven years on a thread about a dash speaker. That's got to be some kind of record!)
Dont you me CD?!?!
And still on topic!!!
