    Component speakers

    Afternoon all

    Iím looking at upgrading the standard speakers in my Cooper s and have bought some in phase components they have a separate crossover box and was wondering where best to mount this and also if anybody on here knows if the door wire ways (the black rubber bit between door and car)are plugs or just cables running through?
    The car has tweeters as standard but presume I cannot just change like for like without the crossover supplied.

    Think this makes sense.

    Also if anyone wants to show me pics of boot builds etc feel free.

    Cheers

    i’ve fitted FLI componant speakers to my cooper, i was going to amp them up but didn’t bother in the end and i’ve run them off the headunit using the existing wiring, the wiring is on plugs through the door iirc (hence why i didnt bother amping up as its difficult to get wires through) the speaker wire ends are also plugs but you can just push male blade connectors from your new speaker wiring into the female fittings on the loom, you can also just buy adapters off ebay that push on and have bare wires to go to your speakers

    the tweeters are mounted behind the existing housings to keep things tidy






    i’ve put the crossover in the door, fixed in place with sticky pads,

    I've been out of the car audio game for years. Are crossovers still huge? I fitted a set of Hertz components to a 306 I had and the crossovers were so big I had to remove their cases to get them to fit

    I have a Hertz set with crossovers inside the doors. Not too big at all.

    I'm going back something like ten years, the ones I had were about 10cm x 5cm x 3cm. I had a real pain getting them to fit. I think I still have the covers somewhere

    Know what you mean, I was into my Rockford forgate stuff in the mid 90s they were the same, similarly a top end Phoenix good graphic equaliser or RF sound processor were so big they were a visual part of an install, Now days you get a better sound and more controllability out of the EQ built into a head unit!

    There's some names from the past. I've got a Phoenix Gold amp sitting unloved in my garage from back in the day. I wonder if it still works?
