I agree. I prefer round speakers over oval shaped ones. I will be placing 6.5" speakers in my doors in the next couple weeks, and they will probably eventually end up in kicks.Originally posted by 12Volt_rep@Jul 2 2004, 11:59 AM
Exactly. I have 5 1/4" componets in my front door. I would recommend using a round speaker in any front stage application. Hell, most of the time the rounds are less exspensive than the 6x8's. The other option other than MDF is masonite(sp). It is thinner, less weight and cheaper.
Round cones are more rigid than oval shaped ones, therefore they will distort less at higher volumes. The only real advantage to oval speakers, specifically large ones like 6x9s is that they produce higher sound pressure levels.Originally posted by hightecredneck@Jul 2 2004, 04:20 PM
J/K why do you prefer round vs. oval speakers?
