Infinity Reference 6030cs Installed in E
 
2 Attachment(s)
Installed 6030cs in the front over the long weekend along with a RBZ and the auto climate control unit. Replaced the rears with Infinity Reference 6032si (rears do not include mounting hardware just brackets).

Purchased off Amazon

Amazon.com: Infinity Reference 6030cs 6.5-Inch 270-Watt Two-Way Component System: Car Electronics
Amazon.com: Infinity Reference 6032si 6.5-Inch, Shallow Mount High Performance 180-Watt Two-Way Loudspeaker (Pair): Car Electronics

$142 out of pocket for both fronts and rears

Infinity

Reference 6030cs - Infinity

Bought the shallow mount thinking the standard 6032 two way tweeter would hit the door panel grill. After installing realize the standard 6032's would fit - they have directional tweets vs fixed on the shallow mounts.

These are a bit bright BUT a great inexpensive upgrade to the stock six speaker set up which is extremely muddy. Did not install the included crossovers - using the stock systems' what n wherever those are :confused:

Acoustical stuff sounds pretty sweet e.g. LedZep BBC sessions - Audioslave / Foo Fighters / Pink Floyd pretty clean as well. Harder stuff ala 80's 90's Crue / VanHalen seem a little harsh - could be the recordings. Bass isnt too bad either for a non sub set up.

Attached pics of the tweeters as they are the only noticeable visual difference (directional). Had to use a dremmel to mod the stock tweeter openings just a tad for the Infinity tweeter (screw in) mounting cups. Happy with the understated factory look.

For those looking for quick cheap upgrade these are a real good choice :thumbsup:

Very nice!!

Those speakers would absolutely shine if they had an amp powering them. The stock 6 speaker system has no amp.

I installed an amp under the driver's seat. Ran new wiring to the 4 doors. Installed an aftermarket headunit and upgrade the speakers. Yup I went all out lol.

Anyway, I highly recommend an amp to get the most out of those speakers.

Actually, the RBZ is powering them just fine. Great clarity and more than enough output for my tastes.

Thought I would dig up this old thread....

I am looking at doing the same either using these or the Kappa series with the matching 3.5" for the centre dash speaker. Being a little bright is a bit of a concern (as I don't want to fiddle with anything else) although I am used to my (bright) Focal K2P's in my other car.

Question is, would the tweets fit behind the existing grill with the right fitting attachment or using whatever the existing tweets have?

Thanks!

First post - just bought a 2014 Laredo E with the 8.4A and base 6 speaker system.

Can anyone confirm the Infinitis fit in the 2014 models? How do these compare to the Hybrid speakers that I've seen are pretty popular as well?

Might do the same setup for now, and add a 5-channel amp + subwoofer down the road. Would probably need the bit ten / 3sixty to sit in between the 8.4A head unit and amp.

Its the Sirius stations that produce the brightness. I turn the treble & mid range down to compensate. CD's and FM sounds great. On a side note I was in a Q5 a couple days ago which had a Bang n Olafson sound system and it really sounded muddy compared to these Infinitys. Kinda surprised

These Infinity's will not fit behind the stock tweeter grills. It really isn't that hard to fit these in and it looks 10x better than the stock set up. Plus you can point the tweeters for a better soundstage. It is EZ! Just take it real slow with the dremmel, trim fit, trim fit - done. To be honest the stock openings look like they were made for screw in aftermarket housings.

Hi. Did you do this install yourself? How difficult was installing the amp and running all the wires? Thinking about doing a DIY instead of taking it to the stop, but also don't want to get in over my head!

Debating:

1. Installing 6.5 components up front and 6x9s in the rear. No amp/sub, driving all from 8.4 Uconnect radio (I have the 6 speaker setup in a 2014 Laredo E).

2. Going all out - 5-channel amp, 6.5 components front, 6.5 two-way rear, and a 10" sub on the rear. A bit intimidated by taking the doors and radio apart to install the line summing processor, running the cables, tapping into power supply, etc.

I just bought some of these to make my install easier/quicker.

PVC Speaker Adapters - CNC Machined - In Stock or Custom Made

They read to be a quality product, will let you know when I receive them!
