So here is the scenerio. I recently blew one of my Type-R 6x9s in my rear. I'm looking to replace it. But here is the delimma I'm in. I have 5.25 comps in my front. So if I switched to 6.5s, I could lose a lot of the midbase my car already lacks from the front. But, obviously 6.5s have better sound quality. Also, without going into detail, installing 6.5s will be easier than replacing that one 6x9. But if I get 6x9s again, I'll have an extra incase I blow another. Honestly though, I think I'll barely notice a sound quality difference by switching to the 6.5s.

It was cold out. My dad was in the car and wanted me to crank it. It was the mid driver, not the tweeter.

Bump, guys, easy question. Need a pool of opinions.
