      'I've got an ICE doubt' thread! All petty queries here!

      @ZAK Why spacer rings are used in doors to mount speakers. Is it necessary :?:

      Spacer rings are not always necessary.
      These are usually used when speakers which are to be fit into the door touches back of the door wall or the glass inside the door.
      By installing the spacer rings,we tackle this issue by fitting the speakers in the spacer rings,which gives more room on the back of the speakers,thus solving our problem.
      Hope you got the thing.

      Thanks jithu. I thought it were also used for reducing speaker vibration (if amplifier connected).

      Unhappy 'I've got an ICE doubt' thread! All petty queries here!

      Hi guys!

      ICE is an eluded subject for many. For some, it is just a child's play!
      Hence this thread.

      Some of us will have small small doubts about ICE every now and then.
      "My speakers make a kirr kirr sound when playing Quick gun Murugun trance"
      "I want to know what it is meant by ohms"
      "What should I do to get my CDs go into the HU easily?"
      "Why is my HU silver and not black"
      "Why is my wife whining all the time I speak about ICE?"
      "What is the best sub for some good BLOW job?"
      "Why should I switch off my HU before I switch off may car?"
      ........... And so on.........
      Please go ahead and post it here.
      One of the ICE gurus here (or all of them at once), will be glad to answer your query and make you more confused than ever.

      For anybody who wants to find some specific info from this thread, use the SEARCH TOPIC option on top of this thread.

      So, let's begin! Roll it on! :crazy:

      A post which was posted in another thread has been added on the top for your reference.

      I would have preferred a bigger dynamat (Dampening Sheet). Would prefer complete door to be used with dynamat and remember to remove that plastic sheet.

      How does one protect speakers in the doors during heavy rains? How can we open doors without getting them wet? :crazy:

      @ Srijit.
      Hold an umbrella while you open the door!

      Ok! Seriousness apart,
      Most speakers are okay with some wetness (I like lots of wetness, I will explain later). Yep! Speakers are capable of handling some drops once in a while.
      And normally when speakers are fitted to doors, it doesn't face up which automatically prevents rain drops from reaching the cone. And a well designed grill will protect it better.

      So, it's ok to get those things out in the rain. Just make sure it doesn't soak itself to glory!

      @zak

      i think srijit is asking about the case when the tweeters are flush mounted on the doors,which will be directly facing the rain, when the door is opened.

      BTW i also agree to zak as it is always nice to have some wetness

      srijit, I bought door visors. helps a bit

      Depends on the stuff the speakers are made of as well. if its plastic/rubber/polymer, then it should be okay.
      On the other hand textile/silk/paper etc dont stand much water at all.

      Like Zak said, most speaker-cones have a water-resistant coating. Quite a few speaker-cones are made of materials that don't mind quite a bit of moisture. But speaker-cones made of paper, even if they have the coating, are best shielded from water as much as possible.

      The stock grilles of most cars give quite a bit of protection against water. But if you have mounted the speakers using the grilles that came with the speakers, in many cases, protection is lesser.

      The only ways of really protecting the speakers during rain are by:
      1) Not rolling the windows down at all (we can get around this by using door-sill visors like greenhorn has).
      2) Opening the door by just the amount needed to get in/out, and closing the doors right after you get in/out.
      3) Not leaving the doors open in the rain.
      4) As Zak said, using an umbrella. Make sure you protect the speakers more than protecting yourself from the rain. I do just this.
      5) Make sure your passengers also follow all these (this is the toughest part).

      Other than the rain, if you have expensive stuff in your car, it is always a good idea NOT to get your car washed when you give it for service. And even if you do get the car washed at the A.S.S. or other water-service joint, don't let them open the doors at all (They always do, to spray water on the lower sill of the doors). I'm very particular of these two things and this reduces the risk of damage by quite a bit.

      I have seen installs where foam cups (available on crutchfield.com) were used to protect the backs of the speakers (basket & magnet) inside the door. The disadvantage of these foam cups is that they degrade the sound quality (the lower frequencies tend to sound muffled).
