Thread: Speakers with bass?
09-07-2012, 02:37 AM #11
Well, comments from the so called "professional" installers above notwithstanding, I think you can buy speakers and get some upgrade in overall sound. The term "bass" is somewhat subjective. If you really want more bass, then you probably will have to adjust the height of the bar here and open your wallet more for additional equipment. That is a slippery slope, though, I want to warn you. Once you start down that road, there could be no end to your appetite to improve the sound system. It's like trying heroin. You will want one more fix, and it never ends. Pretty soon, you find yourself in the local detox for buying too many amplifiers.1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.

Check the sentence. Not one word is "aggressive". Not intended as such. Simply stated in plain English for those who may be grammatically challenged, it simply states regardless of what they (installers or those claiming to be installers) say, I think the author of the thread can find some good speakers to get better sound.
The problem with your viewpoint for this guy is you will always tell a person like this to spend gobs of money for multiple equipment upgrades when he may not wish to do so or have the money. I could just as easily tell you that your post is about as arrogant as Adolf Hitler to the Jews. But I did not. So lay off and crack that dictionary and count to ten before you push "post" next time.

You're not going to get that out of a factory system with an aftermarket replacement of the OEM speakers (and no aftermarket amp) -- period. Clearly what you and I think of as 'great' bass reproduction has a huge gap inbetween. Most 5.25-6.75" speakers just don't produce 'bass'; by and large most are mids. Those that can actually reach into the lower ranges to produce 'bass' (assuming enough power is applied) ... are spendy.

But You can certainly get exactly what you described without spending thousands of dollars, and without having huge subwoofers. While a 6.5" midbass driver might not make the same amount of SPL that a 15" would, a good quality set will still accurately reproduce a 40 Hz tone. And then there's JL's 6.5" subwoofers, which perform rather excellently as well, given the proper size enclosure.
Most music doesn't dip extremely low into the frequency range, and even with 15" or larger subs, they typically aren't designed to handle frequencies below 35-40 Hz; not to mention you'd need > 100db for the ear to hear them anyway. And most good component drivers are built to handle down to 35Hz well; they just aren't necessarily going to produce the SPL that a larger driver does.
