    I don't think you would get the rumble from a non turbo smaller displacement motor, cheapest and easiest thing to do for sound is a cat back exhaust

    I'll give the cable upgrades go and try some 4 ohms in place of the 8 ohm [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

    The Bose headunit / speakers in my old 350Z were a 2ohm System, I left the front speakers in place and changed the headunit which was designed to run 4ohm (didn’t have any issues). less ohms means more power!!! 😆😆😆 It’s not so much that they will sound like s***, it just “might” or “have potential” to overheat your headunit amp, but the fact your headunit won’t be working as hard (less ohms = less load) it may not be an issue. I would upgrade the speaker cable in any case just to play it safe, the stuff they use is ridiculously thin.

    On the back of the magnet it'll say what ohms it runs. That's the only thing you may find different to generic off the shelf ones. Subaru often uses 8ohm where most are 4. Try match everything as close to the factory specs as you can or they may sound like crap

    Literally any speaker you can buy would be better than this, just make sure you buy the right size and get a mounting adapter for your car. If you have a little bit of money to spend then make sure you look at RMS W and not total / max W (watts). Also for front speakers you would want components, and 1 or 2 way in the rear. Quite common for cheaper speakers to be over hyped with a high max w or 3 or 4 way output speakers (max W doesn't translate to good quality sound) and 3+ way speakers have less punch and more sharp piercing / tinny noise, basically too much going on. Long story short, if you just want a cheap replacement and don't plan to spend much on the sound system then a trip to supercheap for some basic speakers will be fine, just don't get sold on the massive spec sheet from sony with their 400w 3 way speakers :p p.s, the cheapest place for car audio is Trademe, there are a few small audio shops who sell there with low margins compared to larger companies.

    A catch can setup does not need to be expensive or complicated. It is literally just a container with 2 to 3 inputs and one vent. The important thing is to make sure it is big enough to not overflow quickly and not restrictive, so the engine and heads can actually breather properly.

    Hi all. Not sure if this is the right category but I have a 2002 Blitzen with McIntosh audio system. The foam on the front 2 speakers has perished and the audio sounds terrible. Does anyone have any McIntosh speakers for sale or know if they can be replaced with something else? Thanks Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
