I'm wondering about advice on good 6X9s. I'm putting them in the rear of a 69 Mustang.

Good brands, models, anything. I'm looking for something with reasonably good sound balance, but maybe a bit more bass. I have Diamond 6.5s in front which put out PLENTY of high end.

Looking to spend anything up to 170 dollars for a pair, but I can do eBay, so that will go a long way.

Anybody?

Thanks

I'm partial to my Infinity Reference 6953's. Under $100 on eBay. The Pioneer 3-ways are also good. And CDT Audio.

6X9 is a good all around speaker, but I was very impressed with the Infinity Kappa's also like the Kicker Resolutions, Pioneer Premieer and the Crystals

Jensen 3 way's. My dad bought some for his 68 mustang, putting 100 watts to them, holy @#$T those things are so good, seriously. But in my 68 I put some older Mobile ES ones, and they bump pretty good too. Or, you could go with everyone else and get the Infinity's. :D Just because it's cheap in price doesn't mean cheap in sound.

Well I dunno about that....those Jensen may "sound" good to you but to other's sound like crap. I had a friend who bought some "good" Jensen speakers and then gave him my old Sony, SONY for Christ's sake, and he said he'll never buy that crap again, I agreed too.

Then you don't know what good sound is.

If he likes em that's fine, but the recommend then to someone else looking to spend up to $170 is wrong. That's like someone going wanting to go out to a nice steak dinner and I recommend them my college's BBQ sandwich cause I like em.

I have a set of Planet Audio NEO 6x9's running off of a small Alpine. They come with external crossovers and removable tweeters so you can convert them into a 6x9 component set. It's like having 10's in my door.

I got a set of brand new Infinity Kappa 692.5i's off ebay for around $110 dollars and they're the best 6x9"s I've ever heard. Even running them just off my Alpine deck, I've had people thinking I had an 10" sub.

I have Alpine Type S 6x9" 3-way Coaxial (SPS-690A) and they kick ***. I love them. :D

Woohoo guys I was just joking about the Jensens, didn't think anyone would blast me for it. Anyways, I am upgrading to the Type S 6x9's for my mustang TazerRE, but I would more recommend getting the custom kick panels from the Virginia Mustang catalog and put some 5.25 components in them. :cool:
