Can anyone give me a little information as to what is good/bad with coaxial speakers. I am looking to add rear fill with coaxial 6.5 inch rear speakers. My system is top notch so I don't want to skim here. Here are the terms that I'm having problems with, which is best?

Tweeter design - dome, inverted dome, balanced dome?
3-way or 2-way?
Tweeter composition - Titanium, Mylar, Textile?
Woofer composition - Polypropylene, Copolymer, Mica injected Polypropylene?
Woofer surround - butyl rubber, foam, rubber?
Watts - if I'm running from a high powered HU with no amp and the HU is 50 watts?
Sensitivity - 87-92, is low or high better?
Frequency - 52-21000hz or 80-21000 or 40-32000, bigger range better or higher range?

If your system was "top notch", you wouldn't be asking those questions much less adding rear fill

X2 music is recorded in 2 channels. Places like crutchfield want to sell more speakers so they tell you bs

Well that certainly was a helpful comment. If you don't have anything useful to say then don't post crap like this.

If you can see through the "crap," you'd see it was a very helpful & useful post :rolleyes:

Here. I'll answer your questions, but it won't be helping you much :crap:
1) Speaker design & the materials used can color the sound. Its your own preference that determines which "color" you like. Obviously some materials hold up better than others.
2) When it comes to coaxials, anything more than a 2 way is a gimmick.
3), 4) & 5) See #1
6) Not sure the question but your HU isn't 50 watts, even if it claims to be.
7) Higher sensitivity is better but its not the most accurate of specs given different variables. I wouldn't trust it as a judge of who's louder.
8) Too many variables makes this another untrustworthy spec. ie, 40hz for a 6.5"coax...yeah, sure it does :laugh:.
