    How is your system set up? Are you amping your 6x9's or are you running them off your headunit. If you have an amp on them, what is the rms rating of the amp and the rms rating of your 6x9. JBL makes so pretty good 6x9's that can had some decent power. What do you have....we need more info to properly answer your question.......

    Re: my 6x9s are clipping

    I have JBL 6x9's GTO series 100 watt rms 300 watt max powered with a profile 100 rms x 2 at 4 ohms and i have my gains a little lower then half and no bass boost running off the amp i just use the X-Bass off my headunit and they sound good so if there clipping you have your gains to high off ur amp or the bass boost is on and if ur running off HU then you might have a wiring problem.

    I'm really not understanding the last half of your statement, it almost sounds as if you are anwserring your own question. Try turning your gains all the way down and when you use your x-bass on the headunit now see how it sounds, also what is the bass cut off freq set at on your amp, because you 6x9's really aren't made to drop bass at the same level as a set of subs...

    grab yourself some comps, 6x9's are nice at low volumes, but distort like crazy once some power is thrown at them



    This years line up.....

    Re: my 6x9s are clipping

    If you have a sub, set them to about 100hz and let your sub grab the rest. It will move the soundstage, but if your soundstage sound like crap otherwise, you could probably live with it.
