they dont say midbass driver but there in the midbass driver section

anyone know what these are like i heard bad things about the kickers


Do you know what the dimensions are? They dont list it on that site.

What 'bad things' did you hear about the kickers? From a reliable source or word of mouth through 4 people? I like mine so far and haven't had any problems though I've only had them running for a month.

Goldfish,

what amp are you using? Are you going to run them in 2ohm or 4ohm?


I'm using a cheap Jensen 360W 2 channel amp - 4 ohm. I dont ever expect to push these speakers anywhere near their max point so I'm not going with an expensive amp. Plus when I was shopping this was one of the lighter weight ones (under 10 lbs) and small enough to fit under the passenger seat. It also had good reviews.

I got the new CD player and front MB Quart component set installed last night and it sounds amazing. I've got the amp wired up and I'm hoping to power it up for the first time tonight.

the speakers in the doors are not subs though. thats the mis concept everyone thinks you can put an 8 inch woofer in there but you cant beacuse its not a sealed box. what you need to put in there is a midbass driver thats what its called. you would be pretty disapointed to install it crank it up and all u see is it shaking and no noise



i have jmine hooked up to my stock amp right now and it sounds fine but i will be upgrading that amplifer eventually but i have other projects ongoing with the car. i only replaced the door mibass drivers because they were blown =)

Yeah that's what I thought too. I didn't understand why some were talking about putting subwoofers in there. I always called them mid-woofers. I guess mid0-bass drivers is a more appropriate name. In any case, I'm thinking of getting the kickerss too. My driver side is completely blown. And if they sound fine with the stock amp, then i'll probably go ahead and get these now instead of waiting. I can always upgrade amp and other speakers later.

I put a pair of Kicker RMB8 subs in my doors, i had to cut away at some of the plastics where the speakers magnet sticks out and some metal off the door, other then that it was a nice fit and they sound amazing

Has anyone tried these Lanzar subs?

It looks like they wouldn't need as much trimming and the price isn't bad either.

They are sooo cheap, and my stock ones are sooo blown I was thinking about getting them until I can afford something better.

Does anyone have these?

I've see a few marine speakers as well that are the exact same size as the old speaker. 7 inch speakers:

That's awesome... I didn't know that Pioneer made that sub in an 8 inch version.

You might still need to trim things but probably not as much cutting. I have the enclosures for the door speakers and short of actually getting a shallow mount 7 inch, I think you'll still need to trim for an 8 to fit.
