View Full Version : 6.5" vs. 6x9"

Currently I'm running Alpine Type R 6x9"s 2-way speakers in my front doors with around 85w rms on them from my amp. I'm wondering would I notice much of a difference in going from them to a good 6.5" speaker or not really? I'm in the process of getting my sub so they're not really going to be needed for much bass. I'm just looking for a nice even sound.

Don't take this as gospel or anything, but I believe the difference is quality and level. A 6.5" is going to be clearer, but not as loud as 6x9" because the 6x9" obviously has a larger cone. At least, that's what I've gotten from the lurking I've done recently. Try the Speaker FAQ's for clarification if nobody else answers that knows more.
