Default Speaker question

Looking at Beyma speakers to replace stock ones. Does anyone have input on them? Should I go with 6x9 & 6.5 coaxials or the 6.5 coaxial and 6.5 components?

6x9 woofers only, 6.5 components. the passive crossover needs to be located in a logical location - depends on the location of tweeters (dash or door).

an aftermarket amp is required to get the most out of them.

Beyma makes good speakers.

what year accord?

'05 Accord 3.0 V6 Coupe. I've got a JL 10W6 on a 500/1 and a 300/4 for the high end. Keeping OEM head unit so I need to find a line converter.

no you do not, those amps have a high level input built into them.

correct, a so you only need the front/rear speaker level inputs to the 300/4 then take the RCA output on the 300/4 to the 500/1

Enlighten me. I just figured a $20 part, a few three foot patch cords and some wire would do the trick.

your $20 part has much lower sound quality then the JL Amp has.

There is no reason to add a low quality part on the signal chain.

Look on the amp, you will see a selector for Hi or Low voltage inputs.

You will use HIGH VOLTAGE

Buy some RCA ends from ebay or radio shack, extend some some speaker wire connect the RCA ends connect them to the amp - DONE

I have had tons of those amps.

Here are 3 sitting on a shelf for my next system I am planning.

Listen to this one. I could use the right rear wires for the rear speakers and sub, then use the left rear wires spliced into the front speaker wires at the HU for the front. Then I would only need power and two pairs of wires for the door speakers. No one uses side to side fade anyway.

Ok, that's what I thought. I can just make those then use a splitter for the sub amp. Appreciate it. I used to do all of this stuff when I was a kid but have been out of it a while and amps weren't this sophisticated back then. I'm only 32 but that's a hundred in technology years. Yours looks like a monster system in the works.

Actually I would recommend it like this

Tie into the speakers from the HU eiother front or rear. Rear is easier as there is less wire to run.

I would cut the wires going to the rear speakers, extend that, add the RCA ends and connect it to the input of the 500/1 setting the voltage level to high and also set input sensing to 'on'



then from the output section of the 500/1 run a short rca patch cord to the 300/4
set the output to "full range"
