Thinking about adding some rear stage. In your opinion whats the best performing brand of 6x9's you've come across???

Input is appreciated. Thanks

p.s. I have focal polyglass 6.5's up front, not looking to break the bank on rear fill just something with great performance at a decent price.

for a hefty budget
XS-69 - Image Dynamics 6x9" 2 Way Component System (http://www.woofersetc.com/p5714/XS69--Image-Dynamics-6x9"-2-Way-Component-System.htm)

for more budget friendly
CTX69 - Image Dynamics 6 x 9" 2 Way Speaker w/ Silk Tweeters (http://www.woofersetc.com/p5558/CTX69--Image-Dynamics-6-x-9"-2-Way-Speaker-w--Silk-Tweeters.htm)

and in all honesty for the money imo those ctx 6x9's are pretty bad@$$. they are very detailed and can play pretty loud too!!!

I've heard good things about the Almani PCS-69, and they're cheap. I've never actually heard them myself, though.

I'm sure they aren't the best, but they look pretty beefy and cost next to nothing.

+1, friend has them. I found out about them from this forum and recommended them. We threw them in on deck power for rear fill. They do just fine blending with the Memphis fronts.

A local shop by me swore by Almani (before they closed shop), I personally thought it was crap but never looked into the 6x9's

I'll take some of these into consideration thanks.


Focal CVX690

Funny you mention those. I actually have Focal Polyglass 165vr's as my front stage.

A round speaker in a 6x9 hole? 6 1/2 component set if you can squeeze it?

Fins some old Altec Lansing 3-way with the carbon cones and ferrofluid tweests. They were the best 6x9s i've ever used.

i've heard a lot of Blau speakers, even sold them for a few years. if $80 6x9's are the best speakers you've heard then you need to listen to more speakers - try in the $1000 range.

i have never heard any 6 x 9 that i thought sound good

i would elimnate all rear fill and put that money into a better front stage

if you do not like that suggestion and must have rear fill fabrciate an adapter and use 6.5" or 5.25" for rear fill

What are your opinions of Infinity Kappa 6x9s? The 2-way model. They cost $179 where I bought them...I plan on returning them and buying them for $80 less online, unless there are much better options.
