JZ I do not appreciate you putting word in my mouth! That is totally out of line and I expect an apology!

I didn't put any words in your mouth.

This is a comment from someone who does not understand the details of audio systems and resorts to snide comments. You should shut up about things you know nothing about! Btw, I have never recommended Monster Cables or $1,000 cables for an automotive sound system. In fact, my point-which you totally reversed is that high ohm speakers will have less loss in the cables, that one reason why I prefer them. To twist this into

Sorry, but I've worked in the field for 17 years. I assure you I do know the "details of audio systems."

You have no knowledge about what I do and do not know. going around yelling at people how they "don't know anything about anything" is not a good way to get your point across.

No, your original point was that higher impedance speakers are better for "clear sound." Here, I'll quote you:

I called you on that comment, then you started talking about losses in the speaker wire which I never disagreed with. But the whole thing that kicked off this side-track was where you said:

I take issue with a statement like that because it's exactly the same thing people who are pushing ultra-expensive crap will say. "You can't measure a difference, but you sure can hear it!" Which is a load of BS.

If you want to take that as "putting words in your mouth," so be it. The only apology coming from me is to WJBertrand for derailing this thread.

Got the Kicker subs and door speakers installed today. Had to us the Ford adapter rings for the door speakers an that made it really plug and plant. I was worried about the sub performance but I am happy with the result. The OEMs dual coils may have been a bit louder, but not hugely so, but IMHO they make more noise than sound. The Shelby Kicker's, even attached just to the Shaker amp sound much more thumpy and tight than the OEMs. Combined with the Kicker door speakers, the sound is much clearer, especially at high volumes. In the end, I'm sure adding amps would be a further improvement, but I'm pretty happy with this upgrade for now.
