Those Pioneer's are good, much better than those Infinity's for sure.

if you want to compare the soundqubed speakers to a mainstream brand....I say they are better than alpines type r series speakers which is their mid level...so a little higher than mid level. hope that helps a little, lol

Sq'd are $50 bucks, if your on a budget then you should consider them. Now i've never heard them but I have heard the pioneers and they blew my mind away for the money. It's worth the extra $25.

Don't be fooled by its single tweeter. :yumyum:

So what im reading is that the pioneers are hella good and the sound qubed would be on par with a alpine type r ~100$ speakers... hmmm anybody else wanna weigh in?

Are these going in the rear? If so you can get away with cheaper speakers back there as long as the fronts are decent.

They will be in the back of a impala... I dont have to go hella cheap but I want to know why the sound cubed 6x9 are so cheap but nobody suggests them...

Probably because not many have tried them.

I hate the name so i'd never run anything from them. That speaker reminds me of something a mainstream brand would sell as their entry level model, cheap appearance along with clogging up the cone with crap tweets/mid. I'm sure they're adequate for the price, after all they are just 6x9's.

Here is my dilemma. they are going to be in the rear deck of a big sedan. I have 2 xfl 12's running off a AQ 2200 and need to fill out the mids and highs. If im really only going to hear the highs in the front why spend 100+ when i can get something almost as good for 50?

I'd get the 6x9 version of the Infinitys then. Would they sound better than the pioneers? Prob not but their cheaper and would match the fronts. :)


Honestly do what you want. Replacing the rears just to fill thing out isn't as big of a deal as choosing a front stage.

As a dealer that can order both Infinity and Pioneer speakers, what's different between the 6x9s suggested that would make the Pioneers so much better? I don't sell 6x9s in my area so I don't get to hear these speakers.

After looking at all the speakers referenced the only real differences is the size of the magnet the hz response range and the DB output. They do not to be that far off from each other so its all coming down to a personal preference. The Pioneers do have a HPF / LPF attached that gives them a small advantage. As they will be in the back of my car They don't have to have the best SQ output... I'm just looking for something that wont sound like garbage.

Sorry, but those differences do not translate to real performance differences. The size of the magnet is not an indicator of performance, the frequency response kind of matters, and the dB rating is also not usually important unless they're drastically different (more than 3-4 dB apart). Infinity and JBL speakers have patented designs that legitimately differentiate them from the others, which is the Plus One cones and their edge driven tweeter design. The "True 4 Ohm" is a fancy way of saying they're 2 Ohm speakers which can make them louder than 4 Ohm speakers if you were to compare them in the same vehicle off the same amplifier. If you ignore all of that and just listen to them and decide, then yes, it will come down to personal preference, every time.
