    Need some help with 6x9's

    I am looking to upgrade my rear 6x9's in my grand prix. I have a very good Pioneer deck and currently have BOSS speakers throughout. The BOSS speakers were there when I bought the car and I have blown all of them. They ****. I am looking to spend around $100 and have a few brands and types in mind. My only thing is that I am not running an amp and do not have a sub but I want something that has a lot of bass and clarity as well. I listen to alot of hip hop, mostly Tech N9ne. Should I go for 3 way, 4 way, 5 way? should I go for the most RMS wattage? should I go for the most peak wattage? I know I sound like a noob but I am pretty new to car audio. Any advice would be helpful. As it stands I am leaning most towards Pioneer TS-A6994R 5-Way Full Range 80 watt RMS 600 watt Peak.

    Re: Need some help with 6x9's

    If u plan on running off HU then u need to find the most efficient 6x9's u can afford. Forget all about rms, max, 3, 4, 12 way..... Efficiency/sensitivity is what you should be looking for with such lil power.

    Re: Need some help with 6x9's

    I don't like how the low end Pioneer 6x9s sound off head unit power. The bass is very thin sounding and the treble on a 5-way speaker is going to be eardrum-bursting. The bass is going to be lackluster on just about any 6x9s without a good amplifier on them. You might blow your next pair of speakers from cranking up your volume past the point of distortion. This is the reality of what to expect out of such little power.

    Boston Acoustics SE speakers are very efficient.
    As well as Kicker KS and DS lines.

    I know it is a little over budget...but there just is not much to choose from with @ the $100.00 mark.

    Look at the two way. I really think the 3 ways are gonna be too overbearing with highs. In my daughters 96 Honda Accord I put 2 way Kenwood 6x9's on the rear deck and Sony 3 way 6.5's in the doors. The 3 ways brought the sound up front. If I would have put 3 ways on the rear deck, thats the only thing you would have been able to hear.

    Re: Need some help with 6x9's

    dont get the ks693 unless u run them off proper rms power which is 100 watts, otherwise they **** on HU power. the ds693 are ok at 70watts rms, but imo, i'd go with the ks693.

    Re: Need some help with 6x9's

    memphis pr 6x9s are nice and loud off deck power so is the sr line from them but i always recommend the pr over the sr due to the fact that if you want an amp later the pr line can actually handle a small amp

    Hybrid Audio Mirus. These are truly high end coaxial speakers. They are based on HAT Imagine component speaker. If you want to go a step up, consider the HAT Imagine, 6x9 version, since they can be installed in either coaxial and component form.
