    Help with new 6x9's!!

    Hello and good day. I was wondering what 6x9's are great for the money that would also compliment my current setup well? I'm not looking to spend too much, under 70, since I'm currently a student and I don't have a ton of money to throw around. I've read before that Almani's were good, but just as I found a new pair buy it now on ebay for both 29.99 and 39.99 they've disappeared.

    My current 6x9's are blown and I'm trying to find a new pair on ebay or a speaker site with cheap shipping. My setup is included in my signature which should help a lot.



    Current Audio Setup: Head Unit-Pioneer DEH-6300UB
    Door Speakers- 2 Pioneer 6.5's (Not sure the model edition)
    Rear Speakers-2 Pioneer 6"x9" TS-G974M (Blown)
    Subs- 2 12" Audiobahn AW1206Q
    Amp For Subs-Audiobahn A4801T
    Amp For Inside Speakers- Pioneer GM 5000T
    Power Cap-Power Acoustik PCNC 2.0F
    (99' Honda Accord LX)

    Put your current 6.5's in the back and run components in the front...

    Second that. Those BA's will do at least 2x the 35w RMS rating.

    Thank you all. How do the Bostons compare to the previous Pioneer's I had? Such as the advantages and disadvantages?

    Yep. I just had to let him know since lots of ppl look at the rms rating. Those BA's will definitely get loud enough.

    Pretty sure the G-series speakers u have are the lowest Pioneer line. The Boston SEs will be a step ahead for sure. They have an easily attainable natural sound for the price. They get loud very easily too.

    You could also spend a little more and go with D-series 6x9s from Pioneer. Those will be a step up from the Boston SEs. They won't get as loud as easily but the midbass was stronger in my experience with a much warmer sound.

    Re: Help with new 6x9's!!

    It sounds like the Boston's are the way to go. My Pioneer 6x9's were 79.99 new I believe. For some reason, the two front speakers stopped working which I'm sure they arent blown and the back right blew I'm sure of. I made the moronic mistake of still listening to it on only one working 6x9 in the left rear and well, the burning smell wasn't a good sign as it was WAY too much power going to only one speaker. Now its very static-like and won't go past volume 12 or 13 before it ceases to produce sound.
