I know it isn't a very good speaker to work with but a guy in another thread with a Cavalier showed me that 6.5's are a ***** to fit without a crazy install so I am leaning towards just replacing what is there with the best 4x6 that can be installed there. Who makes them?

I agree, ide do some cutting to fit a larger speaker, but if you must, the polk mmc460s do well.

The problem from what I can see is the area to the back where it would contact the glass. Don't want it to be ghetto so I will look into plates. Any suggestions?

The polks i suggested are a 4inch driver, with the tweeter mounted above it in the 4x6 plate.

The best 4x6 are made by infinity and are 2ohm. I was gonna use them but modded my rear doors to fit 6.5's

A 4x 6 speaker that kikcs a$$ ???

****nnnn -- I thought the giggles would never quit... lol...

seriously, if you dont want to but these plates my boys are pimpin do what I do... Outline the original speaker on a piece of wood/metal (whatever your means allow) go buy a decent set of mid/tweet drivers, and make your own plate. I had to do this due to lack of funds to afford the pre-builts and I really like ho mine turned out. I beveled the mounts so I could actually aim the drivers...hence...better imaging then you would ever imagine with anything stock like a 'pos' 4x6. ---by the way... I hate 6 x 9's also! LOL!

Anyone make a set of 4x6 plates where you can angle the tweet?

All the reviews on those Polk's look good. I did read on Crutchfield that the Infinity set may lag a little. Both start out in the 70 Khz range but the sensitivity is higher on the Infinitys. I also found this set of Pioneers that start at 45 and goes to 32,000 which has both the other sets covered : http://cgi.ebay.com/Pioneer-TS-P462-4x6-Plate-2-way-car-Speakers-NEW_W0QQitemZ280022598329QQihZ018QQcategoryZ14939Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

It's between those three. What do you guys like if you have heard these in a comparison?

Not sure what year Cavalier you are dealing with but a few years back I did an install in one and I simply used a 4x6 to 6.5 adapter kit......this was also in the front doors.....

This is a 1995 Cavalier just like the poster that put up the pics of his 97. Too much hassle doing all that for her first system. As long as she gets decent tunes up front I don't think she will see that much difference in the 6.5's.


Just searched back and saw several good responses on the Boston 746's.

I looked back and someone said the 462.5's sounded better than the 462.7's. Know anything about that?

Boston also makes a great 6x9.
Usually reccomended when people want a good 6x9. One would presume the 4x6's would hold that same quality...;)

I agree on that one with you. I listened to the SL-95's at Tweeter and they sounded just awesome! Seems you can never get all the ones you want to try in the same place at the same time to see though. I keep looking over the reviews and the Polk's look pretty darn good and they have a Silk tweet which I love.
