As the title says i'm looking for a good SQ 6 by 9. Please do not just name brands. Specify which the model because i'm sure a lot of ppl know which brand is considered good and so on...

Thanks for the help in advance

SQ and 6x9 do not mix.

look for round speakers.

also, components or coaxials?

Yes some people say that and some people say they are ok... So i think its just what each person prefers.

coaxials

sq is NOT objective by definition.

sq and 6x9 is an oxymoron because a non-symetric speaker can not reproduce acousical information as well as a symetic speaker can. the slight difference in cone weight inherantly adds distortion. and for that reason, a sound quality 6x9 is just redundant.

you are WAY better off with a round speaker. coaxial if you MUST. (unless we are talking rear fill)

hard choice from what you put, iv only heard the focals, and they sound great. the McIntosh's would be awsome to have tho.

if i were to use some coaxials i would either use diamond (have them in my boat, sound amazing, but i also have eight of them with a 1000 watt zapco amp and a zapco EQ) or i would use the pioneer tsd-170r's or i would use the zapco iforce coaxials.

I have BA S953 in the rear as rear fill/make up for my lack of a sub and for speakers they hit pretty good. overall its just a warm sounding speaker, i like it, they only take 50 rms though i believe or 45

a 6x9 cone is oval, not round, so, the g-forces of the oval cone being retracted into the frame, are going to deform it slightly, not only that, its going to deform irregularly to the rest of the cone, where as, every angle on a circular cone will contract together, making it more uniform and less distorted. also, a good amp will help out with distortion, but a 6 1/2" speaker will always have more potential to be more accurate than an 6x9. as for your question, for sheer SQ, boston acoustics is definately one of the dominant brands, pretty much every product they make in its respective class is at the top of the SQ list. can't go wrong with them.

the thing i found with the bostons is that they sound good but cant keep up with other speakers as far as loudness goes. good for a SQ system but not SQL oriented. i was out on the water the other day and this guy had a total of 12 top of the line boston 6.5" coaxials with i believe three JL 300/2's. thats 1200 watts with 12 6.5"s. my boat smoked the **** out of his with only eight diamond 6.5"s and a zapco 1000.4. the install was 100% the same. exact same speaker enclosures on the tower and same mounting in the boat.

mine was louder and it sounded so much better.

The diamonds you have are 6.5? Have you heard of the 6x9?

as i said earlier, you will be better off with a 6.5 rather than a 6x9 if your goal is SQ. dont ask for help anymore if you dont like what you hear. go somewhere else and take your stupid immature smart *** attitude with.

I am not dissing your knowledge in any way i do understand what you are recommending me, but i'm looking for a 6x9 which will have the best SQ possibly.

Just an FYI.........6-1/2" round speakers will fit into a 6x9 template.:D

ok then, if you insist to get the best sounding 6x9 that wont touch a 6.5 in SQ, then here you go:

zapco iforce i690
pioneer tsd-690 the rev series

go with the zapco or a boston 6x9....you'll be happy with the sq...but a LOT happier with the sq of a comp set of 6.5's.

I have Polk Momo MMC690 6X9 in the rear, and they sound better than my Boston Acoustics 6.5" components (FS60) in the front.

i forgot about those too, the momos are a good speaker. i think that the best is the momo's, pioneer tsd-690r's, the diamond D3690, and the zapco iforce i690's.

those are in not particular order. those i found to be the best sounding to me. you should listen to make sure that you like them though. my ears might not like what your ears do.

if you're on a budget go for the CDT cl-6xs. They're nice rear fills and you can get a 6.5-> 6x9 adaptor so that's they'll fit in a 6x9 hole.
