View Full Version : Can I borrow a set of ears?

For 6x9 rear fill options eBay sellers have the following around the same price. Essential Info: 9830 HU, Type X comps for front stage installed in factory door locations, PA 75x4 amp so each channel will receive 75 watts. I don't have the opportunity to listen to any of these and am hoping for a pair that doesn't have a harsh tweet and will match "well" with the system, obvious rear-fill philosophies aside.

Alpine Type-R 2-way
MB Quart DTE169 3-way
MB Quart DKE169 2-way
Infinity Kappy 692.5i 2-way
Boston Acoustics FX93 3-way
JL Audio TR690-TXi 3-way

Is 3-way as much of a waste as it seems for coax's? Also, I'm going for a stealth mount using factory speaker grills so no protrusion from the top is preferable. A sub with second amp will be added in the spring.

Thanks again, I've built this whole system based on recommendations from this forum so far. :smokin:

What is it about the BA's that you like?

Overall tonality and detail.

BA's are great, the Quarts tend to sound harsher with their metal tweets.
