the best and most powerful arent 6x9s. 6x9s are basically useless for the most part in a really good setup. Proper setups are completely different than what your understanding of audio systems are. There's a lot for you to learn in terms of system design.

What vehicle? Would be nice to know more info rather than ask what's the best.

Also...I'd utilize that 6x9 opening for a inexpensive set of comp speakers. Around 200 bucks can be had for a decent set

ok after reading your posting over and over again I think I understand what you are trying to say.

1) let me say you want help but cannot be bothered to type out clear easy to understand statement, that is not good.

2) you are running 2 different subs, powered by 2 different amps and one of them is a 4 channel? That is wrong.

3) what electrical upgrades have you made? Over 1,000 watts needs upgrades to work correctly.

4) what is your 2,500 watt amp?

5) what box(es) do you have?

sounds like u need a better sub amp (since it's not running both subs) and get 2 of same subs and use 4 channel on all other speakers.. i mean u can use kicker speakers lots of peeps do, some of them not impressed with them after install though, but with hp xover from amp on them they should be fine.. like they said if u don't mind spending few more $ u can get set of comps and get adapter for 6x9 hole, i've seen some ok comps $79-$109 set probably be better that low end 6x9 coax (wish i had 6x9 hole in my doors)

Sounds like he doesn't even care. SPECIFIC vehicle wasn't even mentioned, just the make.

On a side note, most people use mono amps to power subs, not 4 ch amps. 4 ch amps are used to power mids/tweets.

I personally agree with most replys, yet I wonder not just here but in many forums why the question is not just simply answered.

Suggestion is informative and encouraging, providing growth and insight.

While I don't believe anyone was harsh, and appears wanting to be helpful the OPs question goes unanswered .

Yet unsolicitations come flooding

6*9s give a unique sound , that doesn't mean its optimal.

Could very well be ones tastes.

I didn't read where it was stated what type of listener or end acoustic goal he had.

OP .JBL and Polk make some nice 6*9s will that classic 6*9 could me mistaken for a small sub.

6x9s are shyt

But Ive seen people run them through a crossover instead of subs in stock systems, using the trunk as enclosure

Thats the only legit way to use them imo

Umm. 2500 on all stock electrical over here. Every car and user will be different. Some can get away with 2k in a civic.

There is nothing unique about any cone size. It will sound like anything else within the same SD.

Do you even have the letter"x" on your keyboard? 6x9....

Some people are uneducated about sound/speakers. That's where we come in and help figure out what that person wants, how loud, budget to work with, what vehicle, etc. Some of the most simpliest questions so that we can figure out what's best for that person. It's called asking and researching. We're not here for the hell of it. Some of us have been in this car audio game a long time. We have messed around with many brands to make suggestions. And 6x9's isn't one of them.

you can get odd harmonics off odd shaped speakers especially if the cone is not rigid enough it can flex at higher frequencies causing variances in tone.

not that most people will ever hear it but it does happen.

sound like op just needs some speakers. like recommended i would get 6x9 to 6.5" adapters with preferably a separate spot for the tweeter. i always liked the sound of polks but there are plenty of good brands out there that will fit your needs.

Thank you all I asked was a simple question about getting some new 6x9 speakers the kickers i put in front doors don't seem to keep up with the rest of the system this was my first ever install on any kind of electronics and to be honest it sounds pretty good and as far as using the four channel ampto run one sub what is so wrong with that I have it bridged and originally I had the 5 channel amp running the 6x9 and the kicker 12" had no problems was given a new 4 channel so thought I try it and the box is a fox box and to the guy that so worried about vehicle specific it's a 1500 Laramie longhorn
