      Finally got around to upgrading/replacing blown front car speakers. Went with JL Audio C1 component 6x9’s and tweeters. Added dynamat too.

        I appreciated the input on speaker brands from everyone in my earlier post. I was also interested in Focal and Morel but they didn’t have 6x9’s that fit my doors. Sounds pretty good so far. I’d love to get a DSP and amp at some point in the future too. Materials quality of the factory speakers was insanely craptastic.

        "blown front car speakers"

        Add commas, hyphens, etc etc, to taste --- and still be confused!

        I saw him perform a few years back.. the immediate and lasting impression was how much the band hated him, and his distain for them. I can't enjoy his recordings anymore.

        They're Australian, so they're intimately familiar with the meaning ;)
        I guess they could get away with it because it's in a conference proceedings volume, and they did define how they were using it in a footnote on p. 17 ("gratification of shared interests", lol).

        Yeah, right now he uses my Drop Portapro with the mic but I actually have trouble understanding him when we play together and I was wanting to get him something a bit more immersive as well. Another one I was looking at was the open-back Koss GMR 545. It has an extended detachable boom mic that I thought might be better. Anyone tried them?

        Yea, I assume the over ear one is the same mic in the porta pro headset. Friend had it on for a call and it sounded pretty good.
        Amazon reviews has a video with the mic test.

        Hey, thanks for all then suggestions. Currently considering JL Audio, Focal and Kicker. I wasn’t planning on adding an amp and Crutchfield seems to indicate that the Focals I was looking at would benefit more from an amp.

        Also, looking at 6x9’s because these are in a front door that can take either 6.5” or 6x9. I usually have it faded to the front because of my kids so I want full range up there. All of Focal’s 6x9’s are too deep for the door so it would have to be 6.5. The JL audio speakers fit. I think Kicker will too.

        A close friend told me that he very distressed as a child when a slice of pizza went from 90¢ to a dollar. In 1986, 10¢ was not an utterly trifling sum to a youngster.

        I remember when a phone call when from 10c to a quarter. Almost doubled in price! The cost of a mailing stamp, the "Forever Stamp", is now 60c. I was in a meeting the other day, and we all guessed wrong at the cost of a stamp. I think the highest someone said was 45c.
