Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and great soundUsed these speakers to replace 6x9 Mark Levinson speakers in my Lexus RX350 using an adaptor made out of 1/2 inch ply. A fraction of the price of the OEMs. Hard to compare to the MLs that were in the car as they were completely shot, but they sound great.

Hi i have a scion xb 2008 , do This speakers fit on it  and what kind of amplifier  do I need to power up this speakers

Asked by: Scionxb
According to our chart this will fit, slightly modifications might be required for mounting. This will work with any amplifier that is 4-8 ohms that produces 50-100 watts of power RMS.

Will this speaker (Eminence 290-700) replace a 6"  OEM  Monsoon door speaker?

Asked by: Jackj
Since there is no industry standard for factory speaker sizes you will have to compare the original speaker dimensions with the dimensions for this driver on our site. Chances are it will be close however new mounting holes or modifications may be required.

I have a 4 channel amp 200 Rms X 4ohms if I ran 1 of these per channel would that be ok ? or what would be best ...thanks

Asked by: Moses78
200 watts will be plenty for each of these drivers.

How would this 8 ohm Eminence speaker hooked up to a 4 ohm car amp of say 50 watts a channel react compared to if this Eminence was a 4 ohm? Higher or lower out put? Do I need to wire it different or use two to bring in down the 4 ohms? With thanks, Ron

Asked by: Bongi
If the amplifier is rated for 50 watts at 4 ohms, you will only get about 25-30 watts RMS at 8 ohms. I would recommend using the 4 ohm Eminence if you want to use one per channel, or wiring two 8 ohm models in parallel to achieve a 4 ohm load.

Can these replace factory 8 ohm speakers?

I would like to replace the GM 8 ohm door speakers in my van. I still have the factory head unit. Will these need an amp to work with a stock system?
Asked by: rabbithead
These would not require an amp and would still likely play louder than the stock speakers however these are not full range. If you have separate tweeters they should work well.

Will they produce a rich deeper sound (for a 6.5") in a truck door?

I have tried Peerless, CDT and others in a crew cab duramax and there is always a lack of depth, increade in harshness and lack of strong voice. I have used baffles, polyfill, Dynamat and isolated them with a MDF ring. No luck so far even with the adjustability of a 31 band EX/crossover (Audiocontrol DQX).
Asked by: DCinAZ
These are popular for getting loud midrange from a system. They will not play lower than 100 Hz especially in a door. If you are lacking vocals these would be a great option but they will not produce any bass.
