    recommendations on a good sounding 6x9s

    quick couple question for you guys I need a good set of 6x9s. I have a 98 honda civic. I have a kenwood KAC-8401 its like 60 watts x 4 rms it runs infinty ref. 6.5 componets in front with some pioneer 4 way 6x9s. I would like to get a better sounding set of 6x9s, also dont know whether to get 2 or 3 or 4 ways. A better 4 channel amp is in the near future.. thanks

    Pioneer REV ( yellow kevlar cone) or Boston Acoustics.
    Do a search, i think there are a couple other good ones
    Dont bother with 3-4 ways. Simple 2 way is all you need.

    How much are you looking to spend? A member on this forum has a pretty outstanding set of ByNines for sale currently here

    That could potentially help both of ya out!

    Bostons. Dont go 4 way, 3 way at most. 4 way just sounds disgusting because it's so imbanced.

    I second that rec on the BA's. I remember a buddy in HS has some in the rear deck running of HU power and they were crazy loud and suprisingly clear

    The Fox audiomobile now sounds more quality thanks to SDS power.

So boston acoustic sounds good what series? any others brands? and go with 2 ways ? also would the mid range bass be better if installed something to enclose the 6x9s i dont know what there called tho. anybody know where i can find those to fit a civic ? im in the process of trying to put together a good/ decent system! So all your help is appreciated

    infinity makes great 6x9s. Even their reference line is outstanding, they are on par with the pioneers, the kappa line is even better. Only go 2-ways unless they have an external x-over.

    Re: recommendations on a good sounding 6x9s

    I think the JBLs that Colin+M is selling would sound better than the Pioneer REVs or and Infinities (Reference, Kappa, or otherwise) I've heard the REVs and the pair of Pioneer Premier TS-E6990 I have in storage walks all over them - and they're a considerably older speaker.

    Just my $0.02.

    There are no online distributors that are authorized by DAT to carry their gear. If bought anywhere other than an authorized B&M (brick and mortar) retailer it will not carry a valid manufacturer's warranty.

    Having said that as warranties are not that important to some people you can find Diamond products on eBay, at SonicElectronix, MillionBuy, etc etc etc so on and so forth

    Thanks Prowler for the recommendation I am selling the JBL's for $100 shipped, and they sound great with head unit power, and really come to life when amplified.

    ..end of self-promotion
