Speakers are the most important part of any sound system but that 90% figure just isn't realistic. I'm aware of his accomplishments but a lot of the reasons his cars were so good were in the installation and tuning, not the hardware. If you apply enough technology and install prowess to an inexpensive speaker you can get good results but his approach isn't practical in the average world most of us live in. Work that 90% figure from any direction and you'll see it doesn't make sense.eqsandleds said:Eric Holdaway who has built some of the badest SQ vehicles ever has said that 90% of your budget for equipment should be spent on speakers.
Check the stickied thread up top. All the info on sizes is in there.whatsaholden said:same boat, what is a good spkr setup for that price range? as in a self install, but no major cutting up.. what sizes are these speakers, and what fits where? can we fit the 6" JL's in the rear deck w/o cutting the factory mounts? can the stock amp push them? not to hijack, but i think many people will benefit from good information..
