New Dash Speakers? more treble?

I am going to replace the front dash speakers, I have the Boston System, I like it allot but I feel like it has no treble, even when its turn all the way up in the audio settings.

I was going to order these: http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/p...=off&s=0&cc=01

The crutchfield guys said the infinity tweeters are very bright, so it sounds exactly what I am looking for.

Has anyone replaced just the dash speakers and noticed a difference? Anyone know the impedance of the Boston system speakers?

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

I haven't heard this complaint before. I think everyone else is complaining of the lack on the low end, not the high end.

I have the Boston system too....I think that the treble could be a little "brighter"

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

Considering there are no tweeters in the system, I think adding these 2 way speakers will definitely help the situation.

I feel that the mids and lows are taken care of pretty well, unless you like lots and lots of base.

Now the back seat, there is a problem, audio sucks back there, thanks goodness i don't have to sit back there I think i will leave that alone and keep the change.

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

I totally agree. My BA system sounds very bassy, not in a good way, and very muddy. Just added a sub so I can turn the bass down in the system to clear up the mud some, but I'm also thinking of changing out the dash speakers. I had 3.5" Fosgate speakers in my last car, made a huge difference.

Please let us know the results after you do this.

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

I installed the Infinity Reference series speakers in my last car ('99 ford). The mids and highs sound absolutely amazing. The low end on the other hand.... I would also recommend an external amp. I ran mine for about a year without one and they sounded great. I added a 50x4 amp last year and it was like I replaced the entire system! It really made a huge difference.

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

Initial reports say this was a great investment. I actually had to turn down the treble on the head unit this afternoon cause it was too loud. Music doesn't sound muddy anymore, really happy with it.

pics comparing the speakers coming soon.

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

Here are pics comparing the speakers:

the infinity magnet is bigger and it has a tweeter, the entire construction of the cone is also much better.

Re: New Dash Speakers? more treble?

Kyle, how did you install the speakers? I'm assuming the grilles pop out and the speakers attach to them, but I want to be sure before I start tearing into my dash. I just picked up the same speakers and wiring adapters from Best Buy, same price as Crutchfield's.
