i have 2 yamaha 6x9s that we have had for a LONG LONG time and i was wondering if they are any good. Im no expert but they sound pretty good to me even compared to the pioneer premier 6x9s in my car. Not rattles or anything and they sound like new.

Just b/c they are old doesn't make em bad. If you think they sound good use em, no need to have good audio speakers layin around!

^^ Agreed. It all comes down to how they sound or what condition they are in. I have tons of old speakers laying around that sound great. I even have some old Jensen 6x9's with blue cones that sound awesome. ;) Just waiting for the right project to put them in.

they are dusty and have had one foam ring replaced but they have no rattles and really do not distort easily at all

I had some of those Jensens with the blue surrounds, they were 6.5 coaxials,still sounded good.

note the "Made in Japan" label. better products than Taiwan.

let them play, i would expect them to sound better than modern cheap speakers. paper cones are preferred in general (except when subject to moisture). 20 years is easy for a speaker.

they do not have quite as much low end as my pioneer ts-d690's but the tweeter sounds great. They are better than any other 6x9 ive heard other than my pioneer premier's which do not beat it by much at all.


And yes that made in japan part is the only reason they are even still around
