    Which 6x9 subwoofer?

    I want to get my brother a pair of these 6x9 subwoofers but I don't know which one will work the best for his application. They will go in stock 6x9 locations in the rear deck with about a 100w per sub.

    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=264-837

    This one is a little cheaper than the other option but it runs at 8 ohms. Wouldn't this mean that my amp's power to the sub would be cut in half since most amps are rated at 4 ohm or lower ?

    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=264-864

    This sub is a few bucks more but at least it runs at 4 ohms. I'm just wondering if this sub can give as much punch as the first one because of the neodymium magnet.

    Will either of these subs do well in factory 6x9 locations ?

    Re: Which 6x9 subwoofer?

    Those tang bands dont fit in 6x9 locations properly as you might expect. There was a guy who bought a few of them last year and posted on there that they didnt fit in factory locations without modification .. Im sure its not some real big deal, but it is an issue with them.


    But by far the coolest 6x9's ive ever seen are these made by Vibe UK

    I heard Genesis makes good 6x9 woofers...a little on the expensive side (400/pair) but good stuff:

    can't you run these parallel/bridged? that would get you 4 ohms.
