04 Legacy McIntosh front speaker replacements?


Recommended Posts



Just wondering what's available in the way of speaker replacement for 04 Legacy with McIntosh upgrade? Been around a few shops with no help and can't find much online.


6.5 inch sub, 3 inch speaker and 2 tweeters per door, seems to be pretty difficult to even find a set that fits in. Looking for something a half decent set that will run off the factory amp.


Have found online video of how to do everything but only found 2 sets in these sizes of brands I've never heard of. Figured someone here may have some recommendations.

Should be able to find some ok condition ones from a wreck if wanting to get things working on the cheap but they all fail at some point.

Main problem is they have an 8ohm impedance which is rather rare. Two bridged together gives 4ohms which others have done in the past but will somewhat take away from the full sound of the McIntosh and may sound crap as you won't have much adjustability to tweak the new speakers to the rest of the system. 

Replacing the amp with a high level input one is the next best plan as it then lets you replace all the speakers with standard component/coaxial’s and gives you the ability to tune for the balance you desire.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
