    Baddest 4x6's out there

    I know it isn't a very good speaker to work with but a guy in another thread with a Cavalier showed me that 6.5's are a ***** to fit without a crazy install so I am leaning towards just replacing what is there with the best 4x6 that can be installed there. Who makes them?

    I agree, ide do some cutting to fit a larger speaker, but if you must, the polk mmc460s do well.

    Re: Baddest 4x6's out there

    The problem from what I can see is the area to the back where it would contact the glass. Don't want it to be ghetto so I will look into plates. Any suggestions?

    The best 4x6 are made by infinity and are 2ohm. I was gonna use them but modded my rear doors to fit 6.5's


    INFINITY KAPPA 462.7cfp 4x6" 2-WAY 160W SPEAKERS

    The boiled juice of the cactus peyote contains the worlds highest concentration of the hallucinogen know as mescaline.

    Re: Baddest 4x6's out there

    A 4x 6 speaker that kikcs a$$ ???

    ****nnnn -- I thought the giggles would never quit... lol...

    seriously, if you dont want to but these plates my boys are pimpin do what I do... Outline the original speaker on a piece of wood/metal (whatever your means allow) go buy a decent set of mid/tweet drivers, and make your own plate. I had to do this due to lack of funds to afford the pre-builts and I really like ho mine turned out. I beveled the mounts so I could actually aim the drivers...hence...better imaging then you would ever imagine with anything stock like a 'pos' 4x6. ---by the way... I hate 6 x 9's also! LOL!

    Re: Baddest 4x6's out there

    All the reviews on those Polk's look good. I did read on Crutchfield that the Infinity set may lag a little. Both start out in the 70 Khz range but the sensitivity is higher on the Infinitys. I also found this set of Pioneers that start at 45 and goes to 32,000 which has both the other sets covered : http://cgi.ebay.com/Pioneer-TS-P462-...QQcmdZViewItem

    It's between those three. What do you guys like if you have heard these in a comparison?

    Not sure what year Cavalier you are dealing with but a few years back I did an install in one and I simply used a 4x6 to 6.5 adapter kit......this was also in the front doors.....
