Oh man, this is probably the worst way to compare speakers. Power handling pretty much tells you nothing about how a speaker will sound.

Light years above power handling comes;

Cone material
FR plot
Build/construction

By far!

Re: kicker audio upgrade

FWIW, I did the Kicker speakers and amp, no subs. Night and day difference from BA.

PnP. Takes about 90 minutes to do. moparsupercenter.com best NEW prices I could find on speakers. i bought the kicker amp on eBay for 140, never used, so he says, came with billofsale.

From what I hear (in this thread and others) it's worth the upgrade. Let us know how it sounds when you get everything up and running!

Re: kicker audio upgrade

The amp is in the same spot in 3.7 4.7 5.7 wk's. No I didnt get the mopar kicker sub, however I already have a mtx thunderlink which is a 10'' dual sided sub with a built in 100 watt amp. I am more than happy with it as I dont want crazy bass, I just wanted to add a solid bottom to the sound system, and I couldnt be happier with the way it did that, the dynamat extreme also made a HUGEEE diff, but it is pretty pricey stuff, but I was blown away with the dynamat results.

Re: kicker audio upgrade

so I put in the rears and they are extremely quiet when faded all the way to the back, is it supposed to be like this? maybe because of the surround sound feature of the kicker amp? I feel like the BA's did more, maybe I'm wrong in that thought tho

Re: kicker audio upgrade

How would you guys compare the sound of the BA v. Kicker systems? (no subs)

To me, it seems that when you turn up the BA system, it's too heavy on the highs.
