I recently changed out my front separates in my Silver IS. I'm changing out the entire stereo and all the speakers but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Well first Of all I got Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1. Which are a 6.5 inch mid and a separate tweeter. The installation wasn't very difficult. The stock mid housing was riveted to the door, which was the only bad thing. If you are planning to replace the front separates you will need a 1 inch spacer to replace the stock housing the mid was in. The Infinity tweeters easily went back into the stock location. The results were pretty much what I had expected. With the factory deck in place the sound is virtually the same. The stock speakers are more efficient so they play louder at the same volume. (which was expected) I feel this new separates will only shine once I put all the rest of my equipment in there. I remember reading in an earlier post about how the rear speakers are cheap and only have a power handling level of 17.5 watts or something like that. Well believe it or not the front speakers say the same thing. 17.5 watts. Well in my opinion the IS has the BEST stock stereo I have ever heard so 17.5 watts or not it sounds great. I plan on installing the rest of my equipment when I get the time. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress.
