Lightbulb 6x9's install in zen front doors

hi everyone,

has anybody installed 6x9 speakers in the front door of a zen?
is it doable? does it require any special materials to install? and finally, would any of the audio guru's recommend installing 6x9's in zen's front door?

i got a spare set of pioneer 6990 6x9's from bhai's old car and they are still in brilliant condition. wouldnt want to waste a good set of speakers.

awaiting reply's
regards,
anuj

I know of many people who have 6x9s installed in the front doors of Tata Safaris. The stock door panel fits back on after this traumatising procedure too, so that's quite an achievement!

I know a few who have stuck them into the doors of Esteems etc too, so it should go into a Zen with an adequately large spacer ring. Although, why you would want to do something like that is completely beyond my understanding, with the exception of it being a very loyal display of brotherly love.

Front locations are for comps (components, not computers ). 6x9 are alright for rear fill. The 6990s were decent speakers and would be best utilized there. 6x9s would jut out of the front doors like your door's having a hard-on. Plus you'll need a ****load of damping to keep the door panel from going crazy.

I've seen 6x9 on door of zen but it was not for long......The Pio 6x9 gives so much bass n heavy magnets are just too much for the door panels to handle...All the handles will start vibrating they arent that strong to bear those...
Its better to stick with 4" in front n 6x9 at the rear..

In addition to what B&T said above remember that a speaker needs some box volume to work in. a 6x9 is designed to work in a large box like the trunk of your car. in a smaller box (front door) it might even sound worse than a 6" speaker.

Anuj : your ICE sounds good yaar, additions of those 6x9's in the front will ruin it! exchange it for a woofer or something

No need to go for 4". You can accomodate 6.5" in order zen and 5.25" in the existing zen. Best bet would be components.

JBL 507 and Blaupunkt Velocity 5" should fit easily and their 6" counterparts will fit if spacers are used.

hi every1

i've finally managed to save some dough for the comp speakers. How much should i be spending for a pair of component speakers here in Delhi.

Also, does being a member of team-bhp entitle me to any discounts at the JBL outlet near my house in GK-1?(is there a certain Mr. Sam in here?)

Waiting

Anuj

You can get a pair of JBL 606 comps for 5500+/-. And a hertz Dsk130 for 5800+/-. Go get the hertz man! It sounds really good!

Hey! Mr. SAM is being cautioned here.

Hi Anuj,
tell Tausif ansari you are a member and you know me.. He will call me if necessary but you'll get a discount, just for asking so nicely.

Speedzak, the 606 has been replaced by 607C. Secondly that was a bit unnecessary don't you think? I'm not offended, but that's a really silly statement.

to the core!!!! Very very unnecessary! (Same like that header of Zidane into Materazzi's chest)

Plenty of shops still stock the 606 it seems. 607s are sometimes not available too. And when asked for a discount due to 606 being discontinued, a JBL dealer quoted : "The 606 will not be stopped for sure. Who said this to you? Those will not be discontinued in the near future. 607?? No, there's nothing like that!!" LOLLLLL
He sounds more like the JBL CEO!!

I dont think you have to be a "TBHP member" but being a "friend of Sam" does help.

BTW I do feel it is time we start calling him Sameer. One day he will get married and have a son.
