    Kicker 6.5" Subs

    Has anyone installed the Kicker 6.5" subs in their F-body? If so did you put them in the sails or in the door? I am looking into getting a set and would like to know the quality of the sound and locations of the install.


    The reason I ask if anyone put them in the doors is because my Kenwood stereo allows be to control the frquency of the bass/mid/highs goind to the front and rear and since the sails and trunk speakers are daisy chained it would be cheaper for me to put them in the door.

    I was wondering about these too. Read something about them the other day in another topic briefly. I gotta do something about my speakers sometime.. my speakers are shot. I have NO bass at all, and it sounds terrible and lots of rattles (busted sound naturally). Oh well.. got the good system in my Ford anyway.

    I am not running the stock stereo with this. It did have the monsoon system but I changed it out in favor of my Kendwood KDC-X990. I can control the frequency to the speakers, size of the speakers, and cross overs.

    I ordered a set Thursday night, but they won't be in until Monday or Tuesday and I leave Monday at 0630 for a 3 week TDY. I will be able to put them in Memorial day weekend because that is when I return.

    Depends on the car. The Camaro sail panel subs are 2 Ohm. The Firebird sail panel subs are 4 Ohm.

    Yes.

    I've yanked sail panel subs from both in the last month. The Camaro ones clearly say "2 OHM" on the back, and likewise the Firebird ones say "4 OHM".
