    No offense, but why would you want an irregular shaped speaker? One of the biggest mistakes I made was purchasing 6x8s for my Mustang and I can't wait to replace them! Also, I would do 6.5 before I would do 6x9, but that is just me.

    you should've tried upper end 6x8's such as Pioneer REV 6X8 or Critical Mass RS57

    they sound really nice i still need to throw a small amp on them 75-100x2....it is a really nice 3 speaker setup that would make it an extra nice setup

    Agreedm but I already have the speaker and don't want to spend on an upgrade yet. It's a leftover from my previous setup and the car i'm using now has a 6x9 slot.

    Unless someone takes the 6x8 out of my hand or it breaks soon, i'll keep using it.
