I have replaced the front 5 speakers in the FX. I chose to go with Chameleon seperates. You can see them here.

I chose the CXS62 because they ohm out exactly the same as the stock drivers. 2 ohm on 6.5's and 4 ohm's on the dash drivers.
We capped the tweeters at 11 micro F. The center i used the specially designed driver for the FX45 from Rainbow. Full range. You will notice that the stock tweeters have a 220micro F cap on each.

Audio differences ? WAY brighter for sure, and I like that I used to have the treble at almost max, Imaging is precise now due to the ability of tweeter steering.I am hearing high frequency in recordings I have never heard before...without fatgue So the system bass and treble run flat now......purfect.

In conjunction with my solobaric pounding in the old sub hole and local control I am satisfied and never seem to need to have to push the volume ever over 3/4. http://infinitifx.org/phpBB2/viewtopic. ... =solobaric you can see my sub here.I have really turned this system around.

The stock amp has enough power to push new speakers and they drop in preety easily. I was supprised too at how light the original speakers were. I mean isnt it suppose to be bose, can they be that light?

:lol:

Bose always uses the cheapest speaker components. I've opened up their home speakers and it's the same story.

Yes, using stock amp. Has enough power for me in conjunction with my Rockford Fogate sub amp. I have no balance problem. I was carefull to select replacements that are identical impeadance.

The front end is all cleaned up......considering the rear now but the speakers high in the back are a PIA to get out.

You said the exact same thing as my car audio shop said when I went to go pick up my car. The rear is a pain, I still hear that from them when I get minor adjustment done.

Did you say anything about pricing and install??I am also an audiophile and will probably do something with mine when I run out of performance mods...Bose is known for that heavy/thick sound.
