I need some good 6x9's. I had some subs in my truck but just not enough space, so im looking for some 6x9's with decent bass. I know they are no replacement for my old l5's, but any bass helps... Any ideas??

If your interested i just got a pair of proto type 6x9's from cdt. These use solid cast frames ahh just look at the pics really it explains it lol. Nothing cheap about these babies they are built like tanks! After im done using them i may let them go for cheap as i really dont see myself having a use for them :( i have way to much stuff like this laying around.

hmm very good timing. I'm currently shopping around but might be very interested if you decide to sell sometime in the future. I do have a few questions. What kinda size box should these go in, and what kinda bass can one expect from them?

These will require a .15-.35 cubic foot sealed enclosure. I did a brief test with them and using them IB they do not perform well :( These do have some authority run sealed though. Nice output and can go pretty low. For a 6x9 imo these are a little over done, i cant see any market for a product like this but they just made them for the heck of it. You def wont see these released in the future.

I really have no idea where to start on an offer. YOu know how loud they are, and have actually used them so what would you think a reasonable price would be?

Those are really nice, previous old school killer 6x9's are the Cerwin CS-18a's (pictured below), JBL T545 & T595, and Magnum Professional 6x9 3-way component set. My Magnum's are 23 years old and sport a 1 1/2" VC and a cast aluminum frame and 8lb magnets.

Those look very sweet, I would love to have a pair of them. However, those surrounds look so big they would probably interfere with the stock grills in my Honda.

holy crap, i used to have a set of magnum separates. the 6x9 woofers and the mid|tweet's in an enclosure!

Yep, those are the ones. Cast aluminum grilles for the speakers and the mid/tweet modules. I found the woofers NOS on eBay, and then found a complete set with the modules a couple of years later. The woofer surrounds were shot but all I needed was the modules. I just had to rebuild the modules, the drivers gave out after 23 years of service and being baked by the sun.

I have two pairs of the CV CS-18a's they have the resetable horn tweeters and the surrounds will never wear out since they are coated woven material. They are sitting but they still sound fabulous to this day.
