540i rear speaker questions
Am replacing my rear speakers. What I got are Fosgate FRC4205 5" full range replacements. Are they any good? Was the best Best Buy had. I know everyon is raving about MB Quarts, but that's not what I have.
I believe thy're coaxial. They describe them as 80 Watts peak, 40 Watts RMS, 2 way (dome tweeter and a mid/bass cone), with a freq response of 40 Hz - 22 KHz. Sensitivity is 86dB. Don't see a crossover network although the cone is coupled with a capacitor which could filter the highs. Weight is about the same as the stock speakers. Cone is polypropylene, tweeter is polyethermide.
One concern I have is stock speakers are 8 ohm. These are 4 ohm. Will this fry the finals in the amp eventually if I stay with the stock amp?
Just lost my job, so a better amp is way down in the pecking order right now. That's why I'm finally installing speakers instead of working.
do they sound good... do you like?
then who cares what others think... if they fit and sound better... then they work for you!<BR>
