Boston Vs Kicker

How much better are the Kicker speakers than the Boston Accoustics?
I have found some Kickers on Ebay in the UK, Not the mopar kit but the same speakers at a very good price. Will I notice anymore Bass in the rear without getting the Kicker Subwoofer? Just by replacing the rear door speakers.

Re: Boston Vs Kicker

You probably wont hear much difference unless you replace the amp with the Kicker upgraded amp. In fact, I wasn't that impressed at first when I replaced my speakers and amp with the Kicker system, but it is getting better with time. The bass is pretty good now, but now I need to add sound-deadening to the doors because the speakers are rattling the door panels.

I still plan on adding a sub - have already run the wires, just need to hook it up.

I have a custom kicker system. With 3 way cross overs and it sounds amazing.

There really is no replacement for a sub box. I have to remove my Dual 10" Kicker box every now then to hall stuff and I can really tell when it's not there. You can live without but when you do get a box there's no going back
