JK: Do you feel that the JVC 4-inchers are better than the JBL 4-Inchers(like JBL GT5-S204) ?

I used to have JBL GTO426 (?) for my Santro powered from 4 channel. They used to produce better sound. JVC are a feels a bit brighter IIRC. I dont know about GT5-S204

The fit is perfect as you can see from the pix. There is no rattle. Bass is good as you have two 6x9 singing to the same enclosure. Damping would have helped better.

But, 6x9 in ported boxes will sound louder and more boomy than this.

Nice install, jkdas ! and thanks for the excellent pics. How is the bass effect of the JVC speakers in the hatch-door install? I think it should be better than a parcel-tray install.

Also, does the hatch-door take the weight of the speakers...I mean...does the hatch-door remain open when you open it or does it sag under the weight of the speakers, and shut on its own?

For the hatch-door install, the cables are normally routed along the roof edge, since there is an existing wire for the brake light. They use the same conduit.

those look like dual-cone speakers, not co-axial 2-way.

They are dual cone speakers.

The boot has to be pushed down to shut as it doesnt sag under weight.

Since you have seem my custom made setup in the boot, how do u feel to rate both the installation methods, ie Custom made fixed boxes Vs hatch door installation?

i feel the true bass, only thing i feel bad is the carpet issue. It needs to be cut and place accordingly.

Advantage boot door:

1) Space at any time
2) Stealth
3) Tighter thump
4) No issue with taking care of boxes moving around

Disadvantage:

1) You need to damp boot door for good SQ
2) Speaker will get damaged if loading boot to full if you are not careful
3) Less thump than what a properly designed box can deliver.
