    Need help deciding 6x9 speakers for rear

    Hello, My first post ! Yay!

    I have a camry, the stock speakers at rear have given up. I am looking to replace with a good pair of 6x9.

    I have been quoted $100 installed for Rockford Fosgate Prime 1693. Same price for pioneer 6973R.

    Is it a good price to pay and how are the speakers? I read online reviews saying Prime 1693 have more mids and highs than bass. Is it true? I also came across kicker. Forgot the model number but they are in same price range. Which one would members here suggest?

    I want good amount of bass without going for sub and amp. These will be driven by head unit which is a jvc 6300. The front speakers are in good condition. Don't want to change now.

    Any other speakers i should look at? My budget is around $100-$120 installed.

    Thank you. Sorry if posted anything wrong.

    Thank you for your responses.

    The problem is, not many stores carry 2-way speakers anymore. Most of them are 3 way. Adding a sub and amp is too costly, will have to do it in stages.

    @mylows: Can you suggest some 2-way speakers?

    Thank you

    Re: Need help deciding 6x9 speakers for rear

    the scenario for audio installation is very ugly in sacramento.

    most of the installers are trying to fleece customers. sky high prices now a days for just a pair of speakers. i have got quotes from $150-$200 for a pair of 6x9s. none of them seems to be appealing to my ears.

    i don't have tools or expertise to do the install myself.

    need some intervention

    Your not going to get crap for bass from a pair of 6x9's on headunit power , just give up on that thought cause it's not gonna happen.

    While i understand your concern, i am not looking at mind blowing bass. I am just trying to match it to my current set up. I have no high expectation too, but i need atleast a little bit of bass and not flat response from speakers. i hope you get what i meant.
