I gutted a pair of $10 logitech computer speakers for the hell of it.
I ran one on one of my sony amps (40-60w rms I assume) and it played really well free air. They read 12ohms on a meter but sound good regardless. I played reasonably loud and they did not distort or sound crappy. I think I was using the high pass filter on the crossover at the time, so it was purely being ran as a tweeter.
My question is
: how can I test their frequency range accurately? And how can I guess at the enclosure size they would be good in? Can I free air them?
Only idea I have now is to try one on high pass and then on mid range from my crossover+amp.
For $5 each I figure it would be a good project. I have an un-opened/un-used pair of them as well, so if this turns out right, I would be using 4 of these at $20 total cost. Not bad IMO if they sound decent
Planning to put them either in a dual a-pillar pod alongside some vifa tweeters or inside the center console compartment on the dash next to the windshield and having a true left and right for passenger and driver.
I am not heavily into SQ so I'm sure I won't notice if it's not perfectly matched. Just something fun to do. I will eventually have the a-pillar tweeters facing passenger/driver directly and not towards each other and will give them less power to hopefully extend their life and get more sound out of them compared to how they were, behind a grill and pointed at each other like I mentioned above.
BTW I have a sony xm-4045, xm-6020, xm4040 and xec-700 if that helps......
