Comments and experiences

Such beautiful speakers!

Such an elaborate text, and then so many mistakes..

there is no 16 cm lsp. there are 6,5 inch lsp which are then 16,5 cm in diameter. but the manufacturers don’t care about that and so you get every size you can imagine in the size you choose. This runs mostly between 14,5cm un almost 18cm, at 16,5cm lsp. This is only one point worthy of attention.

Furthermore, a speaker with low-mid tweeter in a package is called a triaxial lsp and no coaxial. Oh yes, co- or triaxial lsp are cheaper, but have the big disadvantage that the frequencies (sounds) already mix in the lsp, which then appears to a trained ear like a badly cooked stew. if you want to have clear sound and localized musical instruments, you always need an "active 3 way system". In these are the different lsp sizes and thus the reproduced frequencies structurally separated from each other. A mixing of the frequencies happens only in the passenger compartment, as close as possible to the ear of the listener.

If you buy your own stereo system for your car, and it’s cheaper than one from the car manufacturer’s shelf, you might as well let it be. The basic rule is: a good system begins where the car manufacturer ends, and that is at the top.

To buy: if you run to the store and just buy the strongest lsp, unfortunately, you are usually already at the end when you install it. Because the power of a lsp goes hand in hand with the size of the magnet and (installation) depth of the lsp.
If your car now has an original lsp with 70mm installation depth in the door and you buy one with 80mm, the side window will possibly touch the lsp when opening or even get stuck on it.
Besides, the (sinusoidal) power of a lsp has nothing to do with the sound.

Here we come to the next topic: sound
a stereo system is not perfectly adjusted to the car (thank god), but to the hearing of the installer. Which is not necessarily the same as theirs, and therefore not always optimal. But you can be present during the tuning of the system, and just bring his own preferences with it. Not every ear is built the same.

Buying a speaker online is possible, but it will not bring you much pleasure if you have not had the chance to listen to it beforehand. If you know what kind of sound you like, you can usually work with the professional in the store to create a suitable system. Oh yes bose is not one of the top end consumer lsp manufacturers, but is a design object for the living room with rather mediocre sound.

What is not mentioned here in the report, but is very important, are the cables. The original automotive (car) cables are as cheap as possible and therefore also as thin as possible. If you attack something in the system, these should be replaced first by new and stronger. You will be surprised what a difference a good cable makes to the original one. Everybody hears it.

To come back to the price. That a lsp with 60 euros can not sound like one with 500 is clear to everyone. whether the more expensive one pays off should be decided by yourself in a listening test.
