I have an amplifier (Diamond Audio D5600.2) for the two rear-deck speakers, and I'm not sure what speakers will work with the amp good and sound great. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Not much, below $200 but would like to spend around $100.

im not sure if you are just looking for rear sound or some sound quality, but many people here would agree that putting 6.5" speakers back there will sound better. a good pair of 6.5 will be easier to find than a good sounding set of 6x9's

i beg to differ, i have the pioneer 420W 4-way 6x9's and they sound great, but i wil agree on going with 6.5 components to a degree. but if oyu have the opening, do 6x9's

have you tried them in comparison with 6.5"s?

My last car had brand new 6.5's in the back...Now I have the same brand 6x9's in the back and the increase in bass they are capable of is pretty spectacular. I do not have an amp though, maybe 6.5's can do a lot more than I think? 6.5's just seem kinda "weak" compared to a big heavy 6x9. I have Pioneer 3-ways in the rear, and they are impressive. They were $75.

the new zapco iforce 6.5"s are really smooth sounding. they have tons of midbass. the pioneer rev's (yellow cones) are a good speaker too. they are a little sharper and a little more harsh than the zapcos. either way, they are about the same price.

i never said components. anything more than a good coaxil would be considered overkill for rear stage in my opinion. i dont even run rear speakers in my truck, but that is besides the point.

Well, Crutchfield says my car's rear deck fits 5-1/4", 6.5", and 6x9. I was told 6x9 would be the best way to go, and I already have the amp, I just need the speakers for it. Any specific model #s for me to look at?

if you want to stay with 6x9's, look at the pioneer tsd-690r, i think its the zapco i690, and the polk momo mmc690.

I am, myself, a fan of 6"x9" coaxials - my current install is the first one in several years that I haven't used some.

My last set was a set of Premiers....model TS-E6990 (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/product/detail/0,,2076_4069_37001,00.html)
On 70w/apiece they wanged pretty good running full-range and on a HP crossover at 85Hz the farther you twisted the volume the louder they got and never distorted.

These (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/product/detail/0,,2076_4069_191756446,00.html) are Premier's top-end bynine currently. Haven't heard them personally but they look pretty sweet on paper!

pioneer tsd-690r... will that run good with the amp? How would I run it?

Hey bimma,

I got the Phoenix Gold Xenon X5.0 component set running on the DA amp from you.

Boston acoustics makes some nice 6x9's as well.
subs are for bass, not speakers ;)

the more clean power they get, the more they like it. they will be just fine with that amp, just dont go crazy with it.
