I searched google and found nothing. The opti series seems solid.

Hmm, why not get 6.5's? I'm just not fond of Lazer's new stuff.

The opti drive series of lanzar's stuff is the only thing from them I'd consider buying, so it's probably okay. I'd try and fit some 6.5's instead of 6x9's tho like kevinn said.

These are going in the rear deck. Is it even possible to put 6.5s in the rear deck? Why would I choose 6.5s over 6x9s?

It is possible, you just need to get an adapter plate for them.

6.5's usually sound better.

I just ordered the Opti6.1 components. They look solid, have all the features I wanted (good power handling, cast basket, silk dome tweets, great price). There is not much info out there on them, only negative I've seen is "they're Lanzar" with the caveat that the opti stuff is still good, and 1 post somewhere that they highs were harsh, but nobody else has said that.

The PG RSD's are hugely popular here, and I wouldn't say PG is top notch anymore either. Sometimes you do get more than you paid for, and when you know you aren't paying for brand rep that could help.

Do you know where to get adapter plates? I was thinking the Lanzar opti6c...

Could I do this for the front door panel too? They are 6x8s....

Well, I'll give you a second opinion on the Optis when you get them.

The RSDs have pretty powerful mids.

Make them out of MDF or have someone make them for you. I always had joeybutts (http://caraudio.com/forum/members/joeybutts.html) make mine, he always has done a great job and I've had him make me three sets now.

You can get them at most of the audio stores listed on the front page.

And you could only fit them in the front stock location if they are 6.5 or bigger. You'd have to get a door pod if you wanted to upgrade from 5.25.



6.5's dont necessarily always sound better, you just have such a wide selection to pick from. IMO you do get more quality out of a 6.5 speaker.
