Pioneer Rev 6x9s or Boston Acoustics S95

Is the jump up in price from $110.00 Pioneers to $129.99 worth it?

Never liked the pioneer coaxials. Go with the bostons.

"Maybe rainbow ment for those to be installed in High end home audio installations"

Ive had those Boston 6x9's and I think they are ok. If I were you,I'd try the Pioneers,heard the Rev's are some great coaxials.boston's sounded nice,just didnt get loud enough.

Are the 6x9 for the rear, If so go for the pioneers, unless you can drive your car from the back seat.

i wouldnt spend too much on the back speakers at all if this is what its for unless all you have is stock sized speakers and no sub

millionbuy has the REV's for $100. Never heard the Boston's, but I do like my REV's, they sound very nice and get loud, especially for the $$$. Built very solid also.

I would never have considered Pioneer speakers as I've heard enough of the junk blue poly ones, but after reading many good reviews of the REV's I went to CC for a demo. They wanted $150 for the 6.5" coax's, got them online for $75. Listened to the Kicker KS series and liked them also. Both are good "budget" speakers that get respectably loud and sound pretty good.

the rev is a far better speaker than the bostons. they get louder and sound better at higher volumes. put some good power behind them and they will knock your socks off.

I have had an Alpine/Boston setup in my truck since 1998 Boston's are awesome sounding speakers. are rx series 5x7 coaxials and a 10" competitor sub. Neither of these is Bostons top of the line. Not bragging but they sounded better than anybody elses. I didn't have a huge mega amp (5 channel alpine) so I couldn't compete for loudness, but nobody ever beat that system for sound quality. Boston's are not cheap but you get what you pay for. When i bought this system i listened to pioneer, sony rockford, Mtx, and alpine speakers back to back. nothing sounded anywhere near as good as the Bostons.

I've used both and they're both good. I'd say try to take a listen to both and make your decision from there. For rearfill, they're both overkill. Personally, I'd keep stock and spend more on something else. But if you need the rearfill, both are good choices.
