I am replacing my 5.25's and my 6x9's, a kid wants to buy my kicker dx's.

I am want something better then those were, but i want to git them off ebay, i dont have much money to boot for the new speakers.

I am thinking either the new kickers, alpines, infinitys, mb quart ( i hear they are good never heard them tho ) i mostly want the 6x9's to sound the best. I was thinking the kicker speakers will the rubber ribbed sorround would be nice for crisp sound but what do you guys think ?

You never, ever, EVER want to make a 6x9 your primary. Sound was never meant to be reproduced through a football, but through a conse you will find in a round speaker.

And secondly, if the 5.25 are what you have in front, place all of your focus on THOSE. Your rearfill is just that - rearfill. Most people here don't even have speakers in the rear.

My brother made the same mistake you did by making his rear 6x9s his primary...it sounds as though all of the music is coming from the rear.

You don't turn your back to a concert when you are there, do you?

And I don't know what you mean by 'crisp', but the DLS Iridiums are the 'crispest' I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

Have you HEARD the Iridiums?

I have Rainbow in the rear, Arc Audio in the front (same as Rainbows), and still regret not putting that money into the 8.3s.

i have never heard them, i was very serious about putting 6.5's in the rear deck with one of those custom speaker adapters to convert my 6x9's to 6.5's but i read soem reveiws on those things and guys said they rattle like crazy, so thats no good. I want to speand around 50 on the 5.25's and about 70-80 for soem 6x9's, i will spend extra if it is only a few more bucks for a better speaker. I have an ALPINE 9831 someone also needs to walk me through the crossover ive tried to set it but i still get bass coming from my speakers

yes i am looking for coaxials, i hear good things about the CDT's but i sorta wanted my 6x9's to match up with the 5.25's, some of the CDT's come in funky colors i am looking for somehting that is all black or silver like the infinity's,

Alpine type R's

NEW kicker DS's or K's or whatever the new ones are,

or the higher end infinity's

MB Quarts are still the running too i guess pending on price

^ These are the easest ones to find off of ebay and are good priced too, Does CDT makes 6x9's by any chance.

well yea comparing the DLS Irridiums to the SLCs is like comparing the C6's to the Profi van line
