    Morel Tempo 6 VS Hertz HCX690 VS ID CTX69

    i have a pair of Polk SR6500 on front run off a Arc Audio KS 300.4 and i need to get a pair of 6.9 coax for rear to fill in, which set is the best to go with my Polk SR thanks for help.

    Are you sure about the rear fill? Your speakers are capable of startling performance. You'll only diminish it by adding speakers in the back.

    what type of sound are you lookin for? how are your front speakers installed? i'm guessing your one of those use to the "surround sound"

    What do you mean, exactly?

    How have you configured the system? I'm curious, because I also run the Polks and haven't found them to sound particularly warm, especially with the stock crossovers.

    i've personally been looking at these and they seem to be pretty nice, never heard them in a real install though, bonus that theyre polks in your case, you maybe looking for something nicer considering your frontstage

    FJ i set the Polk tweeter -3 cause they was too loud and try to add a pair of 6.9 to get more mid and mid bass on rear, that make sense to you?

    i figured you wanted nicer than the polks, one of the nicest 6x9's out are the Critical Mass RS69. I am unsure if they are "soft and warm" though. Ones too Definitely check into, if money isn't much of an issue

    Actually, it doesn't make sense at all. The SRs can deliver prodigious midbass in the right environment, meaning deadened and sealed doors. So much so, that one can easily see how the speakers can be used without a sub. At moderate volumes, they'll extend down to (an articulated) ~60Hz, although I cross over higher. The SRs are also capable of projecting a stable, 3-dimensional image, which is compromised by the addition of the rear speakers, not to mention the blurring of the system's focus and a decrease in transparency. Essentially, you're giving up most of what you paid for.

    What does make sense is your configuring the crossovers at -3dB. Personally, I found the speakers to sound unbearably bright even at that setting, and this comes from someone who prefers a vivid, upfront presentation. This is why I found it puzzling that you referred to the sound as "warm."

    Please take this in the best way possible, as it's not my intention to insult you. Having read some of your other threads, it's brutally obvious that you're challenged when it comes to system configuration, setup and tuning. You've chosen excellent equipment, yet the user's expectations and the install don't seem to match the capabilities of the gear. I guess I'm trying to say that you could get MUCH more out of your system as it sits.

    I'd be happy to give you a hand, if I can, but there has to be more info. Pics would be great. Are you still using a 9886? If so, did you opt for the Imprint module?

    Here's a brief review of the SR6500. Perhaps it can be of help:
