View Full Version : matching components in the rear

06-09-2005, 11:38 PM
I was planning on replacing both my front and rear speakers with matching rainbow components however I came across an article at crutchfield that says that the purpose of the rear speakers is to "add ambience and depth to your forward soundstage and if they reveal too much high frequency information, they'll pull the stereo image to the rear of your vehicle, away from where you want it". It also says that experts say that the correct volume level for the rear speakers is where you're barely conscious of their presense.

Reading that, should I just get cheaper 6x9's in the rear or just keep the components? Thanks.

Get cheaper stuff. Get something from a well known brand that will last.

x2, like Jensen.

I hope you were joking when you said jensen. Their most powerful 6*9s are like 25 watts. Here is some decent 6*9s for rear fill, and their dirt cheap. You still want to atleast stick with a quality company for the rear fill.

23 bux to ship a pair of 6x9s? Are they wrapped in gold leaf?

When your buying things, and they cost over a certain amount, and weigh over a certain amount, ten they are going to charge atleast 20 bucs no matter what. Look at some of the shipping prices on cd players for cars.

so is it bad to put matching components in the rear?

I dont think its bad all you have to do is not power them with the same power as the fronts. Use the fader.
