I lived in Michigan for almost 30 years. I never changed tires for the winter. The tires I ran in the summer were the tires I ran in the winter. As for studded tires---https://www.tirebuyer.com/education/studded-winter-tires

These showed up. Fitting them should be... "fun." Already found the 2" mid doesn't exactly fit in the dash.

1. I love kappa, had a kappa'd out EK hatch in highschool that won many a sound competition.
2. I just bought that same box (basser) going with a dayton HO.
3. I went with Excelons in the dash.

Pictures please, and lessons learned. I would like to replace my door speakers at a minimum, but the “tube” that the OEM speakers are mounted to seems like it will pose a real problem. The OEM speakers and this tube look to be a single unit.

I've never used Kappas but have used Reference components. These model numbers look to be a cut above and are clearancing out so are available at a steep discount right now. I like Infinity tweets because they are still textile. Metal is just too tinny for me. These are replacing BSW setup installed by previous owner.

I'm taking plenty. Will do a build thread eventually. Technically have one, but it's from 2 or 3 years ago when the project stalled.

If you want info now though there are a couple of good threads on direct replacement drivers by Propellerhead and X53Jay4.8is. Links below.

Partied too early. Ps is still keeping same noise... One more pump is coming, after that I don't know what could make the noise. There is not much components on that system, so...

I use an automotive stethoscope to isolate noises like that. Do you have one? They're pretty cheap and with one you can effectively put your ear right next to various components that could be making the noise.
