    6x9s or 5 1/4s

    ok I have a new accord has 6.5s in the front and 6x9 in rear. I have a set of 6.5 and 5.25 comps, I am for sure using the 6.5s should I get some good 6x9s or go with the 5.25s in the rear.

    And I want rear fill... Kids in a back seat all the time

    Oh ya the comps Ihave are low end cdts and everything will be amped

    Oval speakers are useless. Use 6.5's or 5.25's.

    It was specified in CA&E.

    Basically, imagine when the speaker emits sound, the cone is going faster on the two sides closer to the center, and the two sides further from the center have to "keep up" in the process. A round speaker moves as one, whereas an oval, well, can't.

    humm...I dont quite understand your arguement but I did find this

    http://forums.trinituner.com/forums/...kers-38695.htm
    the round cone tends to be more study at highe excursions and is less likely to warp as the strenght is even right around
    the oval willtend to warp quicker as there are pts of different strenghts in the structure of the cone

    then this:

    The subject goes as follows: A 5.25" speaker can fit in a stock 5x7" location, and a 6"-6.5" speaker can fit in a stock 6x9" location. So which should you use? It's quite simple. A round speaker is more likely to have weight evenly distributed against the Voice Coil and VC Former. This means that you can achieve clearer sound with a round speaker that with an oval speaker. On the flipside, an oval speaker will obviously have more cone area. With the same excursion as the round speaker, the larger oval cone produces more sound. An oval speaker is capable of getting louder and usually producing more mibbass than a round speaker.

    There are a great many exceptions, more and more as the quality of your speakers goes up, but this is the general overview.

    use the 5s, and just turn them up enough so you can barely hear them for some rear fill.
    Rear speakers are an easy way to ruin an other wise good soundstage.
