Hey guys, I didn't get lost and wander here on accident. I still have my Xtreme, but my new girl has a 2003 Eclipse. Its about time to rip the door panels off and replace the speakers and amp them up and all, and I was just lookin for some suggestions as for what to run. I am thinkin Infinity speakers all around with the swivel tweeters cuz sound and speaker location in there is horrible. It has 6-3/4 in the doors and 6x9 in the rear side panels. She REALLY doesnt want any new holes for seperate tweets, or she'd get component sets. As much as I hate to say it, the amp may be a Sony Xplod due to her funds runnin a lil short. Besides, she just wants it to sound a lil better, nothin ridiculous.

Now, my main concern.....Have any of you guys dealt with a late model eclipse??? I am curious about taking the door panels off, and how much of a bitch it is. I really cannot break anything, or I'm dead.

Any input is appreciated, whether it be speaker, amp, or install advice.

Thanks in advance.......:bh:

Meh......

its only a girl, buy her some coaxials or if she really wants comp. system, get some braxials.

braxials = image dynamics chameleons or CDT.

coaxials = infinity kappa or something around there.

instead of her buying everything,u buy everything,so if u break anything everything will be ok :)
Seems like a good idea, but its mostly her Christmas present from her parents, I just get the honor of installing it.

Do any of you installers have advice on removing the door panels???

Thats what I figured. Thanks. Now I'm just a little scared about yankin the rear panels for those speakers.

How bout a decent 4 channel amp for a good price??? Any suggestions guys??? She doesn't need something top of the line, just something trouble free.
