Talking Audiophiles...Calling Audiophiles

I just want to see how long i can keep a discussion about car stereo equipment, techneques, and opinions going. I also want to talk about different ideas i have for my truck's stereo system. Open thread for any opinions/ideas/sugestions.

A question

Ok so i finnaly have a question. The new Kicker CVX 10" has a power handling of 600 WATTS RMS /1200 max, and a sensitivity of 87 db 1w/1m.
A friend of mine works at an audio shop and said that Kicker basically took the cone from the CVR and put it on the L7 motor. So, does anyone know the size of the magnet? I picked it up and it wieghs about twice that of the CVR. I was wondering if its possible to put the cone and coil(s) of a subwoofer onto a different/bigger magnet structure.
Also, T-Bird, are these speakers any good? Have you heard/ heard of the brand? http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...ore=&catid=358 and heres a link to the website : http://www.profilecaraudio.com/

The COMP VX is actually slotted between the L7 and L5 pricewise, and its motor structure is about basically identical to the L7's. Obviously the L7 is priced a little higher because it has more cone area and will get slightly louder, but I'd go to bet the CVX has a bit better SQ since it's not a sqaure cone sub.

Yes it's possible to interchange the soft parts and hard parts of subwoofers, it's called making hybrids, or prototypes. Although, this isnt easy unless you are very skilled in the art of building subs. I haven't tried it yet, but eventually will.

Profile makes horrible sounding speakers...I dont recommend them at all. You pay for what you get. If you're looking for 6.5" speakers the LOWEST I'd recommend are these...

thanks, How can i tell what speakers sound good? Is there any standard that one can measure the SQ by? Ive been looking at the sensitivity and
"2-way, 3-way..." I thought that was what made the difference. Man this is getting difficult.

frequency response, distortion, and your ears are the best guides. Look for a speaker that can handle a large frequency range, with a low distortion value, and just listen
