    Best 6x9's under $200

    Im looking for a set of 6x9 to put in my 74 vette. They will be going behind my head in the "trunk space" in a custom box (see pic.) There will be around 6" of room behind the face to work with. They are going to be the only speakers. I dont want to use an amp. I listening mostly to rap so Im looking for bass aswell with clarity. Suggestions...

    You will have problems with

    A) Getting good bass and clarity from 6x9's on headunit power

    B) Getting good 6x9's period

    Most people go to 6.5 components up front and a sub in back. Grab a small amp.

    I don't have the option of speakers up front, I could run an amp with the speaker if need be. If I went that way, what suggestions would you have...

    If you want 6x9's go with Tang Band W69-1042j and give them about 200 watts each.

    I would strongly suggest amping them, they will not sound good or produce good bass off the HU.

    Re: Best 6x9's under $200

    i swear by alpine and i have just an alpine cda 9886 headunit and type r 6.5 coaxials in front and i ran it directly off HU power for months until i installed a small alpine 4 channel amp and now those type r's scream and actually have bass and they also do NOT distort easily. and i have the factory 6x9's for the rear.



    SETUP in an 02 Acura TL-S
    HU : Pioneer App Radio 3 SPH-210
    Front Stage : Pioneer TSD-1720C Components (Dynamat Xtreme on front doors)
    Rear Fill : Pioneer TSD-1602R Coaxials
    Amp : Alpine MRX-F65

    Re: Best 6x9's under $200

    I have a rare set of DD 6x9 componets ...and I think they were the best ever made...but they were very pricey retail was close to $450 a set so there wasn't a market for that high end of a componet set...I'm getting rid of my set I had in my Tacoma for about the price range your looking at....here is a pic showing the motor compared to the stock JBL's I had in my Tacoma





    Current 2010 Louisiana USACi State Records :

    Trunk 0-1000.................. 151.3
    StreetBeat 2................... 145.6
    Stock 1801-up.................153.8
    SuperStock 1801-up..........154.2
    Top three in 11 out of 26 power classes and Louisiana USACi Points Leader at 465
