    Good 6.5's or cheap ones??

    Anyone had any experience powering a pair of 6.5's with only 18 watts RMS from the head unit with any success? A lotta the nice 6.5's I see out there have a recommended RMS rating of 90-150 watts. Does that mean I will not be pushing them to their full potential with only 18 watts RMS of head unit power?? Are there any of these "nice" drivers that are also very efficient? Or am I ***** outta luck and would be better off with some cheap@ss 6.5's? I already have a pair of 6.5 coaxials for the fronts. Just thinkin about getting another pair of 6.5's (just the woofer) for midbass in the rear.

    PS: I am not expecting huge excursion on the 6.5's in question...all I care about are clean upper bass from a pair of REALLY efficient drivers....are there any out there??

    I'd get cheap ones... OEM cheap... parts express cheap, then save your money till you can afford a good set + amp.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    Yeah that's what I thought too. Tough luck for me..oh well. Ideally, all of us would have a beefy alternator, battery, etc that can support multiple amplifiers in our cars, so we can run 150watts RMS per channel to our components. I guess I'll have to start off cheap...hopefully these cheap 6.5's won't be muddy, at least. I'm not expecting them to be loud..long as they're clean(at least at low volume) I'm happy.(for now, that is)
