My HK speakers are ****ed. I need a direct replacement

Hey Guys,

Ever since i've installed my new deck i've blown the HK speakers which came with the car. I dont want to hack up the inside of the car and i dont want to change the amp which comes with the car so i am looking for door speakers which run on the same OHMs and would be a direct swap/replacement.

Anyone know of any such speakers?

Thanks

I rather aftermarkets which can handle more power My biggest problem (AFAIK) would be finding speakers which would handle the OHM rating of the AMP. I think its a non-standard 3 ohm per speaker if i'm not mistaken

So, i was talking to the guys who installed my alarm since they're a car audio shop and they quoted me $1500 to put in new speakers in the kick panels, doors, rears, rewire all the speakers and a 4 channl amp.

I dont know the exact details on the hardware but i'm thinking $1500 is waaaaaay too much!

Who do you guys suggest i go and see to get a quote? I want MB or Focal compoents and a nice amp to push it. I want a clean install and i dont want someone who is going to **** up my car.

If i'm not mistaken they're going with the highend JBLs. I will find out the model and sizes of the speakers as well as with the amp.
Is it normal to completely rewire all the speaker wires? I thought you could pretty much use the existing speaker wire?

They Told me that they needed to run completely new speaker wire for each speaker. They're are 6 speakers getting replaced in total the 5.25's(5.50?) speakers in the read and in the kick panels as well as two new tweeters for the door.

wow 1500! seems fair if your talking about a decent set of component speakers all round and a 4 channel amp , complete rewire (it is nessecary) plus install. the car will sound so nice when its done, it will be much much better than your stock HK setup... BTW hit me up on MSN later regarding your HK system i need a part from it. lol

I hit you up but i guess you're not around. Drop me a line when you're back.

It is a complete rewire, a new high quality 4 channel amp, and some really good components all around. I am thinking of maybe going with Focal speakers but i need to price them out.
