    lol, stfu supa

    round subs have a *lesser* chance to distort because everything is symmetrical. with oblong speakers, they have more of a non-linear movement because the cone is weighted differently on the different sides. its kinda hard to explain but basically in a nutshell;

    round speakers > oblong speakers
    less distortion > more distortion
    less cone area < more cone area

    the more cone area means they can get louder with a smaller footprint (size) and this is why they use them.
    dont ask where square speakers fit in. lol.

    Re: the difference between round and 6X9

    square, pentagon are still symmetrical..with increased cone area...and rigidity..so in theory..less distortion with more output.



    i think...therefore i am unsure...

    idont know if any1 gave you a answer but thought i would before i came here...
    a circle is the exact same distance from its center..
    now a 6x9 is well..3 inches longer of its ends unless you turn it making it the top n bottom.
    i'm happy to help.in more simple terms the defference is well 3 inches.......

    You won't be able to tell the difference between a good 6x9 and a good 6 / 6.5, quality wise. I know there are some people who claim to have ears so sensitive that bad music is like a jagged stick up their ***, but unless you're one of them, the only thing you'll have to worry about is not buying cheap speakers and jagged sticks.

    I'm by far not SQueerish. But I'll bet you a dollar that a 6x9 will distort before a 6.5".

    No doubt. But by (personal) definition, a good speaker, 6x9 or 6.5, won't distort until it's louder than you would normally tolerate, anyway.

    Nice round speakers still pwn nice 6X9's. I'll never have oval speakers again.

    More proof.

    well some1 says a 6x9 will distort before a 6 1/2...
    i believe thats impossible...put 115rms to your 6 1/2 then watch them explode while i'll put 115rms to my jvs 3way bronze speakers as they beg for more power...HAhAHahAHaHa.........
    now i'm talking the most likely out come..there might be 1 or 2 6s that can take that power a few minutes but 99% can not......

    I usually don't go this far...

    But you sir are one ignorant s.o.b.

    Learn to stay away from blanket statement, unless you have proof.

    Re: the difference between round and 6X9

    ^X2. Yeah, so you have oval speakers than can handle 115 watts for a while. And? There are component sets that recommend recieving more than 200 watts RMS, and work best when overpowered. I could bet money right now someone on this board is sending more than 800 watts RMS to their component set, and not having any real trouble.

    BTW: Have you ever actually *sent* 115 watts to those things? Just random curiousity, I don't have any amps that do 115, just jumping from 85rms to 250rms, both much over the JVC bronze speaker's power ratings. Personally, I find they are pretty happy with 15-20watt rms.
