I think installing Bass Blockers on your tweeters and door speakers is a good idea, B/C I have and after I installed them, they sound much clearer... And it also reduces the chances of those speakers blowing.... ;)

if you buy anything below 6.5" i'd go ahead and get a pair of bass blockers while you have the credit card out. it will save you money in the long run, especially if you have a powerful amp running power to the speakers.

I just have the Factory Infinity system in the car, I was just wondering about Bass blockers for the 3.5 inch sprakers, like I like music with aot of BASS and they rattle and become distorted sometimes. So I was wondering if it would help if I capped them?
and if so, how much would that run me?

Yea it will make the speaker sound much clearer. You can even turn the radio and the bass up and it will still sound clear.. I got "STING" bass blockers and I paid around $5.00 usd for one.. I have four in all.. I know prices differ from store to store, but basicly your looking at somewhere around $20-$25 usd for 4 bass blockers....

thank you for your help, but just one more quick question, is there differant types? like for the 3.5 inch speakers, that block differant amounts of frequency? or are they all pretty much the same? or if they are differant, can you give me some recomindations.
Thank you

If you're starting from scratch and planning on putting new stuff in I would not bother with bass blockers. Only use them if aren't planning on doing anything else. A lot of the better headunits have built in crossovers this way you can stop the lower frequencies from even reaching the amplifier and wasting it's amplification. An EQ can also do this. A good set of crossovers work well too, there are passive and active types. Car audio bass blockers (even the expensive ones) are rather cheap and although dampen low frequences at a certain dB/Octave value will still distort all frequencies that pass through it. Plus any work your amplifier has done has now been wasted. Think of your audio system as a stream of water. The more things you put in it, the worse it gets. Bass blockers are really only a temp or final solution, if you're buying new stuff, plan your system out ahead of time.
