    6x9s up front

    Thinking of putting two 6x9s up front in 6x9 boxes. I would mount them vertically in the spots located under the dash, behind the head unit in that open space by the pedal. I've seen set-ups with subs in those spots but does anyone think this would work.

    I have a 98' Olds Intrigue.

    I would stick with a nice component set up there...and thats all. I think you would be much happier that way

    putting 6X9's in a box anywhere seems kinda dumb to me. just upgrade your factory speakers if you havent already.

    or if you dont want to upgrade factory, dont go with 6X9. the shape of the speaker sort of sets off sound quality. look at 6.5 in round speakers, and then see what you can do about a box

    I may get an RE 8' to put up there and upgrade the components in the door. I've seen alot of folks put subs up front.

    sounds good, but too much bass is a bit*h, just make sure that you have some good mids and highs

    Ok...sounds like a plan. Is this because you want some extra punch up front because of the single HC, or is this in turn with a pair of them?

    And what components are you looking at upgrading to?

    if ya not too sure what components to upgrade to, take a look at the mb quart components if ya dont have a tight budget. and forget what people say that "their tweeters are too sharp", dont mind those people.... i'm guessing that if you get components you wont stick the tweeters right next to your head. people get major brain damage from pulling that sh*t. but i'm only saying this because i'm a huge mb quart fan. but it sounds like ss3079 really knows his stuff, probally one of the best sources for any question that you may have about car audio
