Alright, my neighbor is wanting to run all 6x9's in a Mustang and wants to get 2 nice sets, but also not spend WAY TOO MUCH $.

last time he bought a pr of Kicker 6x9's and to me, they ****** for the price.
He likes RF speakers, and was wondering about the RF power series 6x9's

Are these ne good?

What about MB Quart?

Anyone here have a good used set?

He likes to hear the symbols in his music. He listens to mainly Rock/country.
I have the RF Power Series 6.5's in my truck and he likes those, but............. MB Quart is nice too.

If you must have 6x9's, the Pioneer REV 6x9's are good.

thanks. I'll have him check them out.
The kickers he bought for his truck, just really disappointed me. He likes them, but for the $, they should have kicked A55! My RF power series 4" speakers are louder.

Convert to 6.5s and the qualty greatly increases.

I have a very rare set of DD componet 6x9's in my Tacoma...that set is unbeleivable in the SQ and the mid bass they put out...almost like mini subs in the doors....I hate DD no longer makes these :(

Few questions:
What year Mustang is this?
Hardtop or 'vert?
Does your neighbor have an aftermarket HU already? If so, go talk to him and ask the following:
What would his total budget be for:
front 6.5" components
a small sub or two (8" or smaller)
an amplifier
wiring
sub box materials It would guarantee music reproduction quality well beyond what a couple sets of 6x9's could do.

Keep in mind I'm not talking crazy budget here.... even if he could only afford, say, $400-700, I'm sure we can come up with one heck of a decent solution.

It may be an old school 60ish or early 70's Mustang......

For bass, use a Tang Band 6x9 sub...

Boston Acoustics FX93's are suppose to be good. I have some that I have yet to use. Still deciding whether or not I want to sell them too. :crap:

Those aren't 6x9s either.

On my 66 they are more like 5x8s.

However there are 5 holes back there. You could put a 6x9 in the middle I guess.

I have the premier revs 6x9s and do have to say they are very nice great clear sound along with good midbass for the rear for your friends to also here when the sub's are not on.

Before ever answering we should really ask the question of why?

First off 2 sets are a bad idea, and secondly you would be better off with a component set over a 6x9. 99 out of 100 6x9's are junk although you can find ones worth using, components on the other hand are not that way at all.

My 23 year old Magnum Professional 6x9 woofers can generate alot more midbass than a 6.5 can. I have even used the Morel MW-166 with the 3" VC's and some Orion HCCA 6's but the cast aluminum framed Magnum's just have more tight midbass output.

I would also put up an old pair of my Cerwin Vega CS-18A's (top mount only though) against any 6.5 out there today and they are coax's with the horn tweeter integrated into the metal grill.

As you said though these are old school but the Polk Momo 6x9's and the JBL T595 are monsters and sound nice if you can fit them in.

I am not sure why. I am trying to get him to change his mind, but he is pretty much set.

Whats some good Comp. sets (6.5) and maybe I can get him to change his mind.

Click here (http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showpost.php?p=3444840&postcount=13), print it off, go talk to him, and we'll get him set up with a very sweet sounding budget system. :naughty:
