Question Legacy Speakers

Firstly, I sort of have a feeling that this belongs in audio, but since this is the Legacy forum I put it here first. If I was correct that it's in the wrong place, please move it.


Ok, so my question. What sizes are the speakers (front, back, and tweeters)? I am looking to replace them, I just need to know the size.

And unfortunately I couldn't find anything in the search or google that helped.


Thanks

Ok, now I'm confused. I set it all up and put in all the info, but when I click on a speaker set that is said to be compatible it says "Does Not Fit"

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-LhRCy0Z...3GTC652&tp=105

What gives?


Oh, and I realize that it's just a generic link now, but I was just referring to the speakers that I was thinking about getting.

It may say that because the tweeter will require custom install. I fit a pair of DEEP 5 1/4" components in my 2001 doors. Could've probably done 6 1/2" as well, but I know a few tricks to squeeze extra space out of door panels. Otherwise these 5 1/4's would've been WAAAAY too deep. Heck I was even able to custom mount the tweets under the panel and over the speaker to give all the focus benefits of a coax, with the freq benefits of a component.

Anyway, if you know how to manipulate the space you have, you can squeeze those in (assuming the model you have is similar to the one I have, as I haven't been under a '97 panel yet to verify)...

Hehe, well, I understand some of what you said but...

I have the tweeter upgrade so I have a pair on the opposite side of the side view mirrors, so I think I'd put the tweeters there just because it'd look cleaner.

yeah, you can do that with relative ease, as those mirror tweeter covers just pop off. I just left my tweeters up there and disconnected them.

To have the mid and tweet closer together will improve sound quality, but it's not so important to most people. It's one of those tweaks that you'd make once you want to take things to the next level. The average listener won't care so much. Plus, it requires a lot more work to make them fit down in the doors, angle just right, etc...

Oh, so it's easy to replace those. That's good.


Why wouldn't you want the tweeters higher up? So they don't over power the mids and lows?
