all i have done is destroy the woofer part.
i had a set of JBL coaxial 4". f**k
then a set of Hertz coaxials. f**k
then a set of VDO Dayton splits. lasted the longest. but still f**k

So i cut the holes out and put in Herts energy series 6.5" splits. Best thing i've ever done. I have blown up a rear set too. Had JBL all round at the start. But i s**t the 4" first. replaced then with the Hertz 4". Then s**t the JBL 6.5" coaxial rears like 2 weeks later and went to Hertz energy series coaxials. They've in there over 2 years.

But now i am Running Hertz energy all round with a OA 5 channel. Stereo sounds awesome but the rears have had enough. There old. So i'm upgrading the rears to Morel


You were running too much power through the 4" inch's then. You can also adjust the amp crossover frequency so you don't have the 4 inch's trying to push out 30-50~Hz which is going to kill them a lot quicker also.

well in a proper stereo car most your sound comes from the front. rear is just for fill. a mate is the stereo fitter at Autobarn Bendigo and has his own SPL and SQL cars. Has won many awards. so i get my advice from him. 4" for decent sound = fail

Yeah true i wouldn't put 4 inch in mine either but you had too much power through them, im running Hertz hi-energy 6.5 splits in the front and coaxials in the back with a decent Audison Amp. Found them to be really good
