Hey, I have another totally different question for you guys, this time regarding CAR AUDIO. As I posted
way earlier in this thread, our Honda Odyssey is a truly superb
family minivan, except that her factory-default audio really sucks (btw, how many of you realized that the car on the shuttle was the Odyssey?). I guess it’s time for me to upgrade her speakers, and perhaps add a bit more powerful amp.
I do NOT want to install one of those conspicuous external sets of speakers. Rather, I just want to swap the raw drivers without changing the grill facade, so that you don’t see she has upgraded speakers until you hear the sound. I’d like to keep the factory radio/player as is, too, and just piggyback a power amp if deemed necessary. As you see, I am not talking about an all-out high-end upgrade here. I understand that places like Tweeter and Ultimate Electronics will do a nice job of "surgery," and I don't mind paying for professional installation.
So, my question is, which brand(s) of 5.25” and 6.5” full-range drivers do you recommend? I have absolutely ZERO knowledge in car audio -- I have no idea how much a decent raw driver costs. The Odyssey does not have a separate tweeter in either of her 4 corners; so, each speaker has to be replaced with a good full-range driver. How about the amp? -- perhaps one that puts 50W~100W x 4ch?
