    Monsoon Speakers

    The factory/DELCO speakers for my Monsoon stereo in my 98 Trans Am keep blowing out. I have repaced them twice so they cant handle the wattage of the amp. Doe any one have any suggestions on a replacement speaker for the sail pannel that will fit into the stock housing and wiring? Thank You

    yea, don't turn it up so loud and pull back the EQ levels. You are over driving the speakers thinking that you are getting more volume out of them. You are just creating noise. If you want more bass, ditch the system for a couple of 18s and some amps and crank 'er up.

    I am not after getting more bass, I just dont want my speaker(s) to make that crackle sound. I really dont crank them up that loud often but certain songs sound bad.

    if its only certain songs what are you using to play them back with? I ahve found the most free MP3 files are horribly overgained and what you are hearing is infact the medium clipping. Digital files are really sensitve to that.

    If it were you speakers, you would hear it with every song. Try playing the songs that crackle on a better system and then compaire them to one that does not.

    It is not the wattage it is the distortion they cant handle, too much heat. There are upgrade speakers that will fit. Check the stereo section of the forums, there is a lot of threads on this that can help you out.

    You need to learn some basic audio theory. Wattage is the amount of signal/voltage sent to the speakers measured loosely in watts. Over driving the speakers will heat the coils and cause the speaker to over travel.

    Distortion is the result of that over drive as the speakers are unable too keep up. Upgraded speakers are always good.

    You can also over drive the source signal before the amp and that too will cause audiable distortion if it is high enough or you have a trained ear.

    I am not here to argue audio theory. I am saying that better speakers will hold up better.

    I read somewhere that GM came out with some replacement speakers that super-ceded the older model speakers that will better handle the power of the monsoon system . I too had problems with blown front speakers and I'm 64 years old so you know I'm not twisting on that volume button . But after useing GM's new replacement speakers I've had no problems after a years worth of top down blasting .

    I want to keep the factory deck but those speakers seem to be a good way to go. My speakers have not crackled in a few days but when I here a song with massive bass it sux. Thanks for the help, I don't know alot about audio, just drivetrain and body.
