Speakers - Car Audio
Technical Bear
About two weeks ago I noticed static in the drivers' side rear speaker. It is a discontinued speaker. I took the speaker out and checked it over, no obvious (read easy to fix) issues, no torn cones. I was hoping for a loose connection. No such luck.

I searched my favorite car audio site - http://www.crutchfield.com/ - for speakers to replace it, but they were overpriced, by quite a bit. In addition, they did not have the 3-way 6x9 that I wanted. Well, they did, but rather expensive ($299).

But I was able to find several alternatives at Amazon and find speakers I wanted - basically replace the existing ones. Getting details was a bit more tricky. Most of the descriptions were not filled in very well. I did find a pair that fit my needs, and they should ship today. Total including shipping - less than $40.

Granted, the speakers I purchased are no match for the expensive ones, and slightly lower-end than the existing speakers, but I am not sure that it will be noticeable, it will be less expensive, and I will not have the static once I put them in... Which will make it seem soooo much better than what I have currently.

Now just the waiting for them to arrive.
