I need two pair of 6x9 to go into my car. Guy said he would give me two pair of either the Boston SL95 or Hertz (i forget exactly which ones) for $500 out the door (install n all). Just wanted to know what you guys recommend overall. I mainly listen to hiphop/rap/trance. I'm looking for mids/highs.

These will be powered by the 300/4v2

Over all performance I would go with the Hertz Speakers.

500 for two sets of 6x9 SL's??

You can get them for 155 off ebay (310 for two sets).

Haven't heard Hertz's but I like Boston.

which line of hertz? high enery? energy? dieci?

SL's are nice, just depends on which line of hertz

you sure it isnt the boston Sx's? SL's srp is like 300 apiece, Sx are like 200

you wouldnt go wrong with either, both are great companies

Both are high end. Since you are looking at getting them from a dealer, why not listen to both? If they don't have them setup, make them. Your willing to spend 500 bucks they can take 10 minutes and plug them in and get them setup for you. You can easily make a decision that way.

Why are you going with 6X9, if I may ask? Not a very popular speaker size.

I am running Boston 6x9's. They are a few years old, I believe they are the Nx series, or something like that. They sound great, but are lacking a little bit in the mid-range. If I were to spend the money again, I would definately buy a set of 6 1/2's and make the adapters. I can't wait to replace these with a good set of components.

I picked up my Hi Energy Hertz 6x9's during a huge sale at the dealer I go to and only paid 310 bucks taxes included. Do they really go for 500 regular price?

The Hertz are the HCX 690. The Bostons are SL95. Right now I only have the Infinity Ref 6923i in the front. Anyone have anything to say about 9623i? I plan on getting the amp listed in sig to run those. I'll see how they sound amped up and then if I don't like what I hear, go and listen to some more. Thanks for everyone's help.

I think I'm gonna amp up the 9623i and see how they sound. If I don't like what I hear then I'll upgrade to either Hertz or BA. Should I bother getting rear speakers? I hear yes and no. Just wanted to know what you guys thought and why. Thanks again.

well you guys, he is also saying that 500 includes install. My two cents is i would get the 6.5 all around, and buy the adapters. If you got the 500, it really should cost the same...hell, 6.5 components would be the best way to go. And if you're not looking for a crazy install headache, many comp tweeters will mount on top of the main driver, and you can just hide the crossovers. IMO, thats the *best* way to go, aside from separate mounting of the tweeter.
