Boschmann? Boss Audio? American HiFi?

Postby BZG Wagon » Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:29 pm

Need some 5x7" speakers for my Terrano and there doesn't seem to be a lot out there without spending the earth.

Has anyone heard of Boschmann, Boss Audio or American HiFi? They have some cheaper units availible but there's no point buying if they're no good.

Interested in opinions.


Had an American HiFi head unit around 10 years ago and it was alright.

All pretty average (read: below average). Boschmann used to have some decent gear, but everyone who ever sold any of their stuff only stocked the budget end of the spectrum which wasn't particularly good by comparison.

You're probably better off just fitting some decent 5.25s or cutting slightly bigger holes and going for some decent 6.5s

Turns out 6.5's fit perfectly. The 5x7's in the front were inside spaces. I've had some brand new still-in-the-box Sony explod 6.5's sitting around for 3 years and I've finally found some use for them.

Sounds fantastic.

Will look at the rears over the next few days - hopefully the same deal.

Thanks for the info too.
