What decides going 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 way on speakers?
I worked yesterday on my Daughter's car and have the head unit and front speakers all the way done. I did hook up the rear Pioneer 2-way Reference series 6x9's to hear them play but need some more hardware for the install. The fronts are 2-way Pioneer Reference series and are 6 1/2's. The fronts sound really good so far off the HU power from what I see so far. The rear 6x9's I don't know yet since I just played them FA and don't have them mounted. They move pretty good though! All of this got me thinking though that maybe I should have went to like a 3, 4, 5 or 6 way 6x9 in the rear. What is the point in those and is that the better way to go if you are trying to get bass from back there? These Reference series 6 1/2's 2-ways play good and the silk domes sound great. I think I did make the right choice there. The Sony head unit I put with these has SO MANY features of how you can move the soundstage, balance, fade, EQ, etc... that it is a ton harder to figure out than my Eclipse.
