    replacing bostons with alpine's or kickers? the thought of even running 6x9's makes me vomit, but i'd look into 6.5 if it is a must

    Re: want some opinions on 6x9s

    Some of the nicer ones are the JL VR690's, Polk Momo MMC690's, and if you can fit them the JBL T595's (top mount).

    Other worthy mentions are the Alpine's and Infinity's. Pioneer made some nice ones a year or so ago with a yellow carbon fiber cone and a nice tweeter not sure what they offer now.

    Clif Designs makes some decent ones for cheap as well.

    Some of the best 6x9's ever were the Cerwin Vega CS-18a's which were a cast frame with 8lb magnets and a resetable horn tweeter incorporated into a metal mesh grill - very nice! Rare and tough to find now though. The surrounds were red woven pleated cloth that was treated so they would never wear out.

    Good luck with your choice.



    1995 Oriental Blue BMW 525i 5 Speed
    Stock Alpine System Actively Crossed Over & Amped w/CD 6-Disc Changer System with a/d/s 235is comps in front (3-Ways front, 2-Ways rear) sounds really good. All functions are displayed on the dash's check control display module.

    that's why you make a baffle. why do you feel you need rear speakers anyways?

    Pioneer REVs.

    Or just take out a 6x9, make a template with it, cut out an MDF baffle and then cut a 6.5" mount hole in it.

    Re: want some opinions on 6x9s

    aren't your subs in the trunk? generally, midbass makes the system sound worse coming from the rear. not always, but most that i've heard sounded better with the subs rear and midbass, highs up front.
