    Re: 6x9 speakers advice

    What's with the rear speakers? My advice is don't dump anymore money into the rear fill, put that $130 into something else.

    Re: 6x9 speakers advice

    Instead of 6x9, maybe something like this http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=264-832 these will need a amp. If you do not already have subs. You can pick up some bass from these. You will also need some sound deadening for your rear deck.
