    6.5" separates with most BASS?

    The title might be a bit misleading, but...


    I am in the market for a pair of high-quality 6.5" separates for the front of my small car.

    My goal is to have good SQ with lots of punch and good/low bass since I won't be able to use a sub in this car - 4 front speakers only! I like to listen to it loud with the windows down on deserted back roads...if you get the picture

    Price isn't a major factor but I would like to stay under $1000 for the speaker set.

    In a pinch I could probably build custom mounts to fit 7" drivers in the doors but I don't think 8" drivers will fit.

    So...can you guys please offer up some qualified suggestions?


    Thanks

    Going Active? With a $1000 price limit just on speakers your going to have a sick set of mids. I use Image Dynamics X69s and they absolutely get down without any deadening. I have no issues shaking my rear view mirror with them crossed at 80hz/18dB.

    Amps: (2) Kicker IX 500.4 (1) Kicker IX 1000.1
    Processor: JBL MS-8

    Please tell me you will be powering these speakers with an external amp, right?

    Yes! I should have mentioned that I will use a high quality amp, likely in the 75W x 2 range.

    Pick up the CDT Audio HD-62AS 6.5" comp set and upgrade the mids to ES 06 Extended Bass Midwoofers.
    ES 06 6.7” extended bass mid woofer

    Technical specs and contents:

    * Frequency response 10Hz-4000Hz
    * Power handling:100WRMS (200Watt Pk).
    * Impedance 4 Ohm Sensitivity:89dB
    * Mounting depth: 2.9”
    * Cutout diameter: 5.87”
    * Cast frame: OD 6.7”
    * Cone: Mix/Kevlar/Fiber glass
    * Magnet weight 30 Oz
    * Cone surround Buytal rubber
    * Impedance: 4Ohm
    * Fs: 55Hz
    The HD-62AS set is $350 and I don't know how much it would cost to upgrade the woofers, but I can find out if you'd like.

    go with the x69's 727kid recommended over the cdt's.

    They sound quite a bit better that cdt's IMO.
