So do these sound good? I mean I have stock speakers in my 92 and they don't sound that great with my aftermarket pioneer deck (in the car when i got it) I would like something cheap because I am shelling out allot of money for mechanical repairs right now.......

Those probably sound better then OE speakers, but they wont touch mid level stuff like Infinity, Fosgate, pioneer, etc..

They don't look to bad for $20 either. but then again these are just pix...

mrbell83- Yeah if you have stock speakers from 92... yeah putting thses in will sound alot better, and if you dont want to make your want bracket for the 6.5" i think they also have the 5.25 you need...

but yeah, if you spend like $75 ors so on some 6x9 good name brand they wil sound better then the $20 wallyworld, but if you dont have alot of money and want better then stock, i say go for it.

My A-bahns were powered with 150 rms each and finally only died because i turned them up too loud and didn't notice the distortion. You probally just didn't notice the distortion. I know a lot of preple that have like 6.5'* and they turn up the bass till its distorting and they think that is how its supposed to sound. Not saying A-bahns are good or anything tho.. $40 is a good deal tho IMO.

Umm No. I didn;t blow them my self, i know what distortion sounds like, and there no way i could have blowen then my self anyway.

Reason'*
1: I usein my headunit to power them (15watts RMS) per channel
2: My base to the front and backs are turned down because i have Subs.
3: I have the rear speakers turn down and the front louder.
4: I addjust my front and back speaker with the subs off to make shre i dont have to mutch base going to them.


There are certin models of A-bahns that are know for being bad, i herd this from more then one person from BC and from out side of BC. Some are good, IE. My dads, he got the next models after mine, they sound great and dont seem to ahve any problems.
