speaker performance and how it works in different vehicles

Hi. I have an 05 Hyundai Tiburon and a 97 Jeep Cherokee. I recently bought alpine type R 6.5's just to upgrade all my speakers to alpine to match my head unit. I previously had infinity reference 6.5s in my doors and they did pretty decent. My jeep had 5 1/4's in the doors but the holes in the doors were just big enough to squeeze in my infinity 6.5's. I put them in the jeep which has the upgraded stock infinity system with an aftermarket jvc head unit. Long story short. The Infinity 6.5's Sounded AMAZING. Way better than they have ever sounded in my Tiburon. I installed the Alpine type R 6.5's in my tiburon and the sound itself didnt change. They are better in the sense that i can turn them up a lot louder before they distort. But as far as performance compared to the infinity's now in the jeep. It doesnt even touch the quality from the jeep. What can i do to get that type of performance in my tiburon? If i have left anything out please dont hesitate to ask me for any info you need. Thanks so much in advance for your help.

The best method to make the speakers sound as good as in the jeep would be to make the interior of your tiburon as big as the interior of your jeep.

Acoustics is fun.

I wanted to come back and apologize for the previous post, it wasn't very helpful - it was merely my initial thoughts on the matter (I can be sarcastically an as*ho** sometimes).

To the honest truth, air can't be fixed very well. Your tiburon interior is a worse space for musical reproduction than your Jeep. Recording studios are very large spaces for a reason.

It seems like your main complaint was volume before distortion. Did you notice issues on clarity? Frequency response? etc..? or was it primarily that the speakers didn't seem as loud before they reached the distortion point?

adding sound deadener to the doors is usually the best place to start.
