    I'd say ditch the 6x9 idea and get a pair of 8's....RE8's, EDA8's, ID8's, etc. etc.

    If 6x9s will fit, you should (hopefully) be able to find a way to make some 8's fit. 6x9s will do more harm than good, IMO

    Re: *help: need some bass but want no sub*

    I'd suggest getting some beefy mid's up front. One of those custom 6 1/2" 's with a monster motor should do the trick for you. Look around on ebay. A bunch of high end companies have a few mid's that can reach down to 45Hz...... They might cost you more than a pair of 8" woofers.......but thats would definetly be the way to go if your serious about weight.

    Also look into the 8" Hertz components. They're built with the motor on top of the cone...so they are about and 1 1/2" deep and have alot of cone area........ Heard these in a trans_am w/o any subs and they do a good job in the low end as well as all around. I'd say these are a metal heads dream.....they get "make ur ears bleed loud" when coupled with a good amp. Not too expensive either...and very very unique look. :p

    Re: *help: need some bass but want no sub*

    lower freq = low notes i.e. bass hits

    higher freq= high notes i.e. whistles **** like that, horns,

    the lower the speaker reaches, the lower i is able to play down to



    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9833
    Speakers: Polk/MOMO MMC650 (coaxials with ext. cross)
    Sub: Digital Design 9512
    Mono Amp: Hifonics Brutus bx1500
    Speak Amp: Tsunamni db4440

    Upcoming: in a 94 camry
    -Components: don't know yet
    -Midbass maybe?
    -seel and peel or second skin
