I believe you might be taking this the wrong way.....not bashing here....simply stating that I dont agree with this
ultimately, its just another opinion that hopefully a reader of this thread can see both sides of and then make their own educated decision on
bass blockers on a 3.5" dash speaker running off of a head unit or factory amp is overkill IMHO.......99.9% of aftermarket 3.5" speakers ALREADY have caps running to the tweeter to cut off unwanted bass notes....
when these people you say are contacting you of "blown" dash speakers......are you confirming its the woofer or the tweeter?
if people are blowing the woofer off 15 or so watts, I still stand by the fact that they may have the polarity reversed or may have their settings adjusted wrong giving too much distortion at high volumes
cmon, lets be honest here.....the majority of people on these non-audio forums can throw in some 30 to 40 dollar 3.5s AS IS (polk, BA, Kenwood, JL, etc etc) that will rival your ~100 dollar 3.5s
Im also talking about standard 10-50 watt 3.5s here.......not someone wanting to run high power demanding 3.5s in a competition system rated at 200 watts (like a set of 400 dollar Critical Mass 3.5s!)
all in all, I say spend the 50+ dollars elsewhere in the system.
3.5s can only do SO much with sub 30 watts bro
the only true benefit of your Kappas is they are rated at 2 Ohms to make the best of the factory amp sysytems in todays vehicles.....
Also, lets not forget that ALOT of these Jeep people you are giving advice to also have a UConnect/Bluetooth system in their vehicles that run ENTIRELY off of the 3.5" dash speakers......when you start capping the frequencies to the dash, the output suffers dramatically.......I dont know about you, but the people I talk to have bass in their voice and arent always high pitch screaming like the lead singer of AC/DC
but once again, this is all simply my opinions on 3.5s....
mids/component sets/subs/etc...thats another discussion entirely
I would hate to see people run out and buy 75 dollar 3.5s...add 10 dollar bass blockers and think its going to make a huge difference...lol
