ok, i recently upgraded my car's speakers a month ago or so. just standard ones in the doors (from 10W ones it came with to 200W alpines).
but there are those sort of plastic covers that cover the speakers, so you can't actually see them. some types of speakers have visibly cool designs though, like those sony ones with red cones and stuff.
so, do people tend to ever take off these covers? is it normal/odd/sad/wrong? i think that it might even help me, because i sometimes get slight buzz/vibration which i guess is from them being attached a bit too loosely.
If you want it to look good, cover off.
If you want it to work for more than a month, cover on.
If you take the cover off, then I guarantee that you'll end kicking the speaker accidentally and damaging the cone. Keep them on I say; my speaker covers have taken a good few kicks as people have got in or out of the car.
ah, right. so it's best to keep the car manufacturer grill on then?
i don't think the speakers i have are that special anyway actually.
Also you don't want to draw too much attention to the car.
keep them on in case u break them
Unless they are tweeters, take them off and you will get better sound quality. Its to do with the frequencies involved but speaker grills (the plastic types) can block those frequencies or comp them so you don't get some of the frequencies.
Its all very well having 200Watt speakers, but if you don't have a 200Watt amplifier then they won't be that loud!
Your max amp you could amplify those speakers with is probs 150Watt with a 200Watt peak.
100 quid for four speakers, including installation. i've seen them on the net for something like 39 a pair.
