Where's the punch?
1991 Pontiac Firebird
Part of a custom restore to a 91 Firebird was to replace the factory sound system. I purchased and installed a Kenwood KDC-MP2035 receiver (excellent),<BR>Alpine SPS462C 4X6 coaxial dash speakers (poor), and Rockford Fosgate (fair). The tech help at Crutchfield was very good. The speakers were wired properly but just didn’t perform with the richness I expected. The OEMs have richer sound at lower volumes. The replacements sounded better at high volumes. Not willing to rattle my rear view mirrors to achieve good sound quality I reinstalled the OEM coaxial. The OEM dash are 10 Ohm and the rear 8 ohm. The impedance rating needs consideration. Nothing beats hearing before buying.<BR>
