I know next to nothing about speakers. I just want an inexpensive replacement for factory (base) speakers. Something I can turn up with the top off and hear semi clear. What Does coaxials mean. Does that mean I have to run different speaker wire?
I want the simplest install. Not a lot of mods. like cutting stuff.
Also, What size and depth for the sound bar and front in dash? I am getting 6.5 6 3/4 Are they all considered 6.5?
Simply put, coaxials have that little tweeter in the center. I got those about a month ago to put in the overhead soundbar. They are good. They are not the best. I did have to make a modification, as they were too small. I thought 6 1/2 was the soundbar's frame size. If you are looking for some hard pounding speakers look somewhere else. I just wanted something with a little more clarity, which is what this speaker does very well.
No special wiring was needed. The soundbar had a special connection at the speaker that I just cut off. I then butt-spliced the connection that comes with the Kicker speakers on the end of the wire I just cut. I didn't want to get too involved with the speaker, so I did an easy mod. I just connected the speaker to the old speaker cover. If you want to show off the speaker with that nice grill that comes with it, you might have to spend a little extra on a bracket. Like I said, I just wanted them in. When I upgrade the fronts, I will go back and fix it up better.
