hi guys. I’m pretty new in car audio. I really need some advice here on the speaker arrangements. I listen to mostly jazz n classical music. My budget for the speakers are below rm3k. Amp will probably be a n old Soundstream 4 channel tr500/4. Now my question is. Should I get a 3 way component speaker system, where I place the 4” woofer and tweeter at the dashboard and the 6.5” woofer at the rear door OR get a 2 way component speaker (4” or 6.5” woofer) for the front dashboard and another set of coaxial speaker for the rear door. Im hoping to get this done by the weekend. So any quick help is much appreciated. Thanks

3-way component speakers is out of your budget bro.. for jazz and classical you should focus on mids and sub. Spend your money on a custom door panel, 2-way component, wiring and depending on your space requirements - get either an underseat woofer or a decent 10" sub with sealed enclosure.

You plan to DIY or send to a shop?

The question is what for? You are the driver so you should put the speakers in the front to enjoy. Put at the back and you only improve the sound at the back. Is the lagi-best still dashboard 4" speakers? If you're on a budget, get decent 2-way speakers and replace your dash speakers and be done with it. If you have a bigger budget then changing to 2-way components like those from Blam and Rainbow (extra high sensitivity component speakers, usually above 90dB) will make a difference but you'll need to modify your door panels to fit the 5.25" or 6" speakers.

Bro, this is a forum where people share information and swap knowledge. Don't worry about long post or private. We chat here so other people can read and learn also.

The door panel default only 3 screws? Then just make one more hole with those self tapping screws or build a wooden bracket to or if you have the budget, an aluminum bracket to hold the speaker.

Based on what you have now - I think you can do better la. Come compare your sound vs my Myvi sound. I only have component speakers with stock player and under-seat woofer, no amp. The sound is pretty impressive for the amount I paid for it (RM1k plus a little) and my mid-bass speakers are custom fitted to the door. It's been with me for almost 8 years and still going strong, except the stock Myvi player. The buttons are committing suicide.

This is my setup hooked to my stock player and an underseat woofer. That's it.

Pre-amp? Modern head units with high pre-outs won’t need preamps anymore.

Biggest bang for buck is a mono amp plus a subwoofer.

You can but why would you need to? You don't need a pre-amp la. Those are most of the time a waste of money.

yea i know ..HU already got good equlizer..but my setup is dash board and rear door speaker direct from HU. while my boot shelf speaker powered by power amp for only bass out..so if i setting bass from HU then my dashboard and rear door also play bass which cause distortion something like that...
what i want to do here is.. i want install pre amp only for my boot shelf speaker ( which is only bass) for allow certain bass band frequency only.. so i think it will be more clean bass from the back..furthermore i can turn off bass from HU EQ..so my rear door and dash board speaker will play only midrange to lowest mid range frequency...how about that master..tell me which part im wrong here include guidance..
Thank you
