Some 124 questions, please help

Ok guys I know you have answered it a million times but please, give me some help here. I have a 92 300e and I want to know what kind of speakers are in the front doors. Someone said they are subs? Anyhow I want to know what size/type of speakers to replace them with. Also I would like to know what type/size of speakers to put in the rear.

I just happened to pop open my door panel last night (to work on a door lock issue) and noticed that the speaker is a 6" unit...and yes, it IS a subbass unit, not just a sub. The dash speakers handle the upper frequencies while the lower midrange and bass frequencies are handles by the door speakers.

The speakers are in a specially-engineered enclosure which is tuned to the particular brand of speaker that currently resides there. So even though you may be able to just drop in another 6", the crossover requirements, resonant frequency and "Q" rating of the new speaker may not work harmoniously in that enclosure.

Haven't looked at the rears, but do a search and you should find your answer. W124 stereo installs are commonplace here.

Can you recommend a speaker for that particular area?

I really shouldn't comment since I've stopped doing sound-offs and IASCA events over a decade ago, and my speakers are OEM.

But I would probably go for the MB Quarts or JL Audios. They are pricey, but would integrate well with the existing system.

Don't think you can crank 'em up any harder though. You still have a power limitation with the factory amp...

I would recommend a good set of 6" components. you can mount the tweeters in the dash location, the 6" speaker in the door, wire it up with the crossovers and improve your sound.

I removed the 6" sub boxes in the doors, took otu the speaker and opened them up to remove the subwoofer capacitor. I then had to trim the back out to fit the magnet of the new speakers.

glued it back together, installed it and voila.
