What he is trying to say is that 6x9's distort because of thier oval shape, and you would be much better off buying a set of 6.5 in comps and running them off of an amp.

My infinity 6x9s can shake my mirror no problem, and do not distort the slightest and sound incredible and are very loud. I have had the kappas and references both are incredible. I powered them with Alpine amps, very high signal to noise ratio. I have 6.5s and 6x9s but my 6x9s just sound better.

It's a matter of opinion. I've seen people with 6X9s as subs, mids, and high range speakers. A friend of mine has 3 pair in his Bronco, all directly off the HU, and it sounds really nice

Not meaning to bash but have you ever heard a stereo that had good comps and plenty of power.

I could see using 6x9's as purely midbass but the distortion is there wheter you hear it or not. A well trained ear could most likely pick it out.

Seeing as this thread has been bumped by a very.... strange.... post, I'm going to pick up where I left off:

No. Or, should I say, not yet. Tomorrow I will buy a component set, new subs, and sound deadener for the new year's install. Maybe then I will park alongside his setup and see which is the lesser. Remember the install is more important than the equipment.

ProfilePower:
Tell me, exactly what do you want to accomplish with that post? Do you really think holding down the shift key is going to change one person's total outlook of brands, models, power ratings, and music preference? I know what the JVC Bronzies can do, I have personally listened to them AND reviewed them. Yes, they are nice, but to try and glue my lips to their ass like you're doing is just ridiculous. Listen to something higher end than JVC, like Rainbow components or something, and at least try to worship some really great speakers, instead of plain good ones.

I've heard comps plenty of times, but I'm not running a component set in the van, either :) Just 6.5" coaxials in the doors...though they are receiving 125 watts each, heh.

As for the post above the previous one, well...it sounds like the funky pup advert :D

It kinda does, but Funky Pups go BOOM! Like so. Priceless, you just *can't* top that advert.

Uhhh.. my new setup is costing me under $350 and isn't involving any bronze JVC stuff. Your logic is a little off.

What is your hobby then? Most people spend money on either a hobby or something they enjoy, and alot of people here probably enjoy car systems. I see that your opinion is negative towards car audio enthusiasts. Sort of seems like the wrong place to be then, seeing as how this is a car audio forum.

For supposedly being in your 30's, you'd think you'd be a little more mature. You act like you're in junior high.

Try Incriminator Audio and Rainbow. Oh, wait, those aren't JVC, you must not like them. $350 is speakers only. My entire setup will actually run at right around $800 out of pocket.

Just a random though, but if you were to either reinforce the longer areas of a 6x9 cone, or add weight to the thinner areas, wouldn't it help to stabilize the speaker at higher volume levels?

You should make your hobby learning the english language.
Perhaps try grammar and spelling more specifically....
After that, I'd try spending some of your wealthy daddy's money on a therapist, it'd do you alot more good than a jet ski.
