View Full Version : SQ 6x9 speakers

Hi, I need good sounding set of 6x9. I am looking for natural sound more than power handling. They will be hooked up to Clarion drz9255 head unit and JL 300/2 amp. Budget $100, $200, $300.

The only SQ 6x9 speaker that I can think of is the Image Dynamics XS69.

Image Dynamics would be the best, but if they go over over budget, 2nd choice would be Fosgate T1682S if you can still find them.

The JL VR 690's are nice as are the Polk Momo's since they sport a cast aluminum frame. I think CDT or Cadence had some cast versions as well.

I have a stunning pair of mint old school Cerwin Vega CS-18A's but they are top mount only. Cast aluminum frames, huge magnets, horn loaded tweeter w/reset protection, treated woven fiber surrounds so they never wear out.

I am using some 23 year old Magnum Professional 6 x9 components right now (very rare). I find the larger woofer provides better midbass than a 6.5 mounted on an adapter plate. I tried some Morel MW-166's and some a/d/s woofers but the Magnum's outperformed them hands down.

Those Image dynamics are sick. :eek: Does anyone have experience with 6x9 Polk or JL speakers? Both use soft domes and are very nice. It is kind of hard to decide. I don't want crisp sound, I am looking for smoothness so that rear passengers can relax and not complain about bleeding ears. :emb:
