Sad old OEM non-Bose Gen1 rear door speaker next to the EVL-65 for some comparison
Still have plenty of room behind the monster magnet after install with windows rolled down.
Suppose I may have gone ham w/the sound deadening
Just finished dropping these into my non-Bose base Gen1. Had ordered these earlier this year but was waiting on the temps to warm up a little bit more before I could install.
I paid a bit more when I bought these, the cost of a pair of these subwoofer(s) that can be successfully installed in both rear doors of the Gen1 with room to spare (see pics above) is currently @$120 via amazon: (2) Skar Audio EVL-65 D4 6.5" 400 Watt Max Power Dual 4 Ohm Car Subwoofer
Considering the rather cheap cost of these sub(s), think I may eventually splurge on a halfway decent 2-channel amp to drive these puppies with.
What do you guys think of the rather newish acm-2.300 above!? Can you guys think of any issues I could have using this amp to drive these subs?
Although these speakers sound just OK at lower volumes being driven by the Gen1 OEM radio, the sound quality drops significantly at any real volume since the stock radio amp is just so weak!
