    Rear speakers not as lound as fronts?

    Just installed some 6x9s into my accord and they are not as loud as my 15watt front stock speakers when I have the radio on. Is this normal for rear speakers to be softer then fronts or did I connect something wrong?

    if replacing for stock, you need to get the lowest rms 6x9 u can find

    Yeah they are 225watts and the fronts are only 15 watts

    I am going to be getting 40 watt per channel amp soon so that should fix the problem right?

    Where are you in the car when you are liestening to them? In the front -- there you have it.

    There are good reasons not to have rear speakers. If they are loud enough to hear in the front -- they are too loud IMO. If they are not that loud, then what is the point of having them.

    No I mean when I turn the fade on all way to the rears then all the way to the fronts I can tell the fronts are louder.

    Re: Rear speakers not as lound as fronts?

    But if 15 watt speakers are being powered by a 20 watt RMS head unit and 225 Watt RMS speakers are being powered by the same head unit shouldnt they be louder since they are getting more wattage?

    I guess once I get the amp hooked up it will even them out

    front speakers in your car would be more efficiant than the new ones you have just put in, meaning they'll go louder on less power

    no, all i'm saying is that the rating is bogus and you really shouldn't believe that it'll handle 225 watts. But besides, you shouldn't even have the rears, but that's just me.

    Oh already lol sorry im a noob here.

    So ill just get some fronts that handle around 40 watts RMS (leaning towards polk DBs) and wont really worry about the rears. They should go louder once I get an amp to power them.
