    Good or bad idea?

    I was planning on buying components, but my car needed some work done to it forcing me to sell the amp i was going to use and all the wires i had.
    I still want to ugrade my speakers, but im not in the financial state to afford components because with components comes amps, wires, etc.

    I figured to save money i would dis connect my rear speakers and put coaxials in my front doors, and i would install some deadoning too. I want to get alot of bass out of these speakers, so i figured i would cut larger holes (i have 6.5" holes) and install 6x9's. Im not sure if its a good idea or not because i hear that 6x9's are mainly for rear fill only.

    what do you think

    6"x9"s wont sound as good as 6.5"s, and i dont think the increase in bass would be worth it, it's up to you though

    Re: Good or bad idea?

    Yeah theres like no difference between 6.5" and 6x9 in loudness... but theres quite a difference in sq because the cone is more evenly distributed along the voice coil.

    I actually just went looking at 6.5" coax with my buddy for his blazer yesterday. We really liked the inifinity reference and memphis power reference coax's, and they were both relatively.





    I'm lazy...
