Replacement front speakers

Postby NMAD » 27 Jul 2016 16:58

My drivers side front door speaker gave up the ghost last week so I called Nissan to see who much a new one costs, R 840 for one speaker Clarion 40W! Damn expensive.

Ended up getting a set of JVC 6.5 inch speaker part number CS-V628 which fits in the same mounting for R 400.

I must admit that the Nissan speaker does sound better than the JVC though. :think:

New speakers are like a new engine - they require a breaking in period before they are at their best.

Audiophiles go as far as purchasing special CDs to assist them with this task. People who enjoy good sound just ignore the thin, scratchy sound for a month or so until they settle in. The rest have no idea what we're on about :biggrin:
