I've replaced all of my factory equipment w/ Infinity Kappa component speakers. However, I'll be getting new mid-range speakers for up front (see thread about it). I don't know of kits available where every mid-range speaker, tweeters, crossovers, and wiring is included in one kit. You usually buy speakers in pairs.And depending on what kind of speakers you plan on getting, you may need to power them w/ an aftermarket amp and it is definitely advisable to get a new head unit as well.
What size component speakers did you install front & rear?
I have a '98 Saleen Cobra convertible into which I want to transfer my SVT Contour's system. I have 2 sets of 6-1/2" component speakers & 1 set of 5-1/4" component speakers. I'd prefer to use both of the 6-1/2" components but supposedly the rear side panels will only accommodate 5-1/4".
Did you mount your front component speakers in the factory locations; e.g. the forward lower door for the mid-woofer & the upper door sail panel for the tweeters? If so, how is the sound stage with these locations? I'm concerned that the tweeter mounted so high in the door & away from the mid-woofer would cause the staging to collapse.
I've considered mounting the mid-woofer in the lower door location along with the tweeter either next to it or in the kick panel, then add a pair of auxiliary tweeters in the sail panels but angled so they reflect off the windshield.
I suppose I'll have to consult with my custom installer to be certain what is the best set-up, but I wanted to know what others have done.
