    4x6 Speakers

    I am wanting to get my little brother some new speakers for Christmas.. He has a 97 Rodeo and Pillar 4x6 speakers... He wants a crisp clean sound and has no plans on ever getting a sub or comps or anything of that nature...

    I wanted to get everyones opinion on what the best 4x6 speaker would be to get him and what you guys think..

    anyone?

    Re: 4x6 Speakers

    Sound is very subjective and it depends what each person likes. You'd just have to go to a store and audition a few for yourself to see how they sound. That said, your choices will be reduced somewhat in a 4x6 size.



    Pioneer 4900ib, 12 disc changer
    Infinity Reference 6.5" comps | Kenwood 100x2
    2 JBL GT100 10" | Lanzar Vibe430 400x2
    Oh well, better than stock

    Re: 4x6 Speakers

    If it isnt a really big deal to do it you could buy an adapter or make one to get it to accept a 5.25" speaker. Your selection gets so much better then and you would get better SQ. If you are set on 4x6 though I would go with those image dynamics.

    If you think you can make an MDF plate to accept a 5.25" (real easy to make). You could look into these.

    Personal experience, those Focal 5.25s sound amazing for the price.

    For 4x6's, I like the Memphis M-Class line. Had some in my Grand Am, and they were excellent.

    Re: 4x6 Speakers

    Had some pioneers 4x6s, 3ways, and they sounded good, yet little harsh/loud on the tweater region. I'd look at some infinity refs, but im sure there are better out there, thats just what caught my eye when I saw a bunch of them on display on BB

    peace.
