Guys yesterday I nearly bought some 4X6 speakers for $179.00 are these speakers really that good good the model is Reference SS46???

Thanks! RJ

Remember guys I’m using my front speakers that I have right now for highs so I don’t thing I would be letting these other speakers do it what they should or what would you guys do?

Is Critical Mass still around? Their 12" sub was very nice by all accounts but everything was wildly over-priced and their amps were just off-the-shelf Korean boards with a bunch of fancy marketing hype and 10X inflated price tag. I'd expect their component/coaxial speakers are no better than Alpine/JBL/Kicker.

And you’ll get outbid on EBay by the people selling them in the end every time because they put in a bid at the lowest they will take for them instead of having a reserve on their stuff ....Metro Holding has been doing it for years on eBay

At that price, you can get audiofrog, german maestro, hybrid audio technologies, focal, audison, mosconi etc... Actual proven names that will stomp the sh*t out of this idiot snake oil brand.

My truck is a 1993 F/S GMC Ext/Cab so up front I’m running some 4X6 MA Audio speakers and where my back speakers were I have some 6X9 Cerwin Vega IT-693 I bought them some months ago but I just put them in these speakers we’re new old stock from what I found on them they were good which I agree for running my mids and highs and for my Sub it’s a Kicker I don’t boom much I just like some bass I’m a older fart my amps is a 4 channel JBL pushing my front and back speakers my Sub is being pushed by a old skool Fosgate my HU is a Alpine CDA-9857 it’s a older unit but I like it I just use it to play my iPods shoot one has over 16k songs I listen to a little bit of all kinds of music.

If your MAs sound good I’d keep running those ..the older MA stuff is pretty nice ..I have a few pieces ..I’m not sure if your 4x6 are plates two separate speakers or the football shaped with one in the middle two way but either way they are pretty nice the hk is their best series
