Ahhhhhh, I'm tracking with you. That's what I'm looking for, subs with more definition. My NVX was fine, decent clarity, but I want something tighter. Though that may be from having a soft top more so than from the sub itself.Me too! The Vega 8's, installed in this config, really do perform very well.
By more musical, I mean the way the subs react to rock music; tight, punchy, bass passages .... The kick and bass guitar are more defined. I assume it's related to how the speaker reacts to transients maybe? I'm sure having the 8" subs in the cabin, while the 12" was in the trunk, also has an impact here too. The 8's just sound more lively than the 12 did, and since they also cover the spectrum down to 25hz or so just fine, I've been really happy exchanging them for the sealed 12.
There's another forum member, @KFXGUY , who has a GTO as well. He's the guy I got the mounting adapters from, and he tried several different 8" subs in the rear deck before settling on the Vegas. Not all 8s performed like this, and I am really thankful he went through the trial and error process which I got to capitalize on
For the next upgrade, I'd like it to be the head unit ... but supply chain issues and pricing right now are making that difficult. I may swap the 6.5" door speakers for the matching Hertz Mille Legends counterparts to my new tweeters if I can find them at a reasonable price ... but I'll just have to wait and see at this point.
Oh that's even better! No wait for it, I might have to look into one of those You're welcome 😁 Of course, can't vouch for how well they work, but I read some early tests of the Motorola being pretty decent.
