Why do my rear 6x9's sound crappy?
2000 Grand Prix. When I had my stock speakers in with deck power they didnt sound horrible..but not good. I added power to stock speakers and it sounded worse. I replaced stock speakers with Alpine type R 6x9's (mounted in stock rear deck location) and have added a 50 watt Halfer 2 channel amp to drive them....and they STILL dont sound very good. Granted...these are just for rear fill and I barely have them on. But even if I just listen to them by themselves and give it more power...they just dont sound great.
I'm pretty sure I overbought for what I needed. I forget what RMS is for these Type R's...but mayve I'm not giving them enough power. However...I think that its just the fact that the sound has to bounce off the rear window to reach my ear that makes them sound so crummy.
