    Replacing one pair of speakers...which one?

    Eventually I want to replace all the speakers in my Formula, the 8 y/o Monsoon speakers have seen better days, I think.

    I can't afford to do them all at once, so I'm not sure where to start.

    Which ones will make the most noticeable difference if I do them first?

    Also, I have read that Infiniti's are good, and I need 2ohms....is that right?

    Thanks!

    x2 ... The door is closest to you... And if you can only do one set right now then you probably can't get/afford what you should get for the B pillars.

    Do the doors unless you are tall and drive with the seat all the way back. I mostly hear the rears when driving.

    You're right, they are 2ohm speakers. Up to you which ones to do first. I recommend listening to all of your speakers and see which set needs to be replaced the most.

    I just bought infinity kappa and will be installing them this weekend. I can't wait!!! After that, my stock subwoofer is next. ED needs to stock their EU700 D4 units.

    I would suggest the door speakers first. I've got mine replaced now with a set of MB Quart Reference-Line (RKC 116) speakers and I love them. The picture below is what they look like. They each come with crossovers but since the Monsoon already utilizes crossovers for the door speakers, they don't have to be used. If I end up swapping out to an after market deck/amp, I'll need to use the MB Quart crossovers. Of course, I lost the passenger side factory door speaker so that kinda sped up the process of replacing them.

    Infinity is what I hear to go with for the best set up.
