6x9 speakers - any recommendations??

Hi peeps...

I'm about to purchase some 6x9 speakers, just wondered if anyone has any good recommendations before I go ahead?

I've been looking at the Pioneer TS-E6995 speakers (300W MAX, 38mm Titanium dome midrange, 12mm tweeter) has anyone got these already, if so whats the sound quality like???

Any help would be nice!

Cheers!!

Re: 6x9 speakers - any recommendations??

i've got those (the tse6995) they sound great, bit too powerful though and made the car cut out if you turned the bass up they really need an external amp (mine were off the internal on a sony minidisc head unit).

if only it hadn't all got stolen BUGGER! get a stealth shelf right away, just too tempting if they are on show.

alternative note though, will they fit in the front door? or would it muck the cross over bit up? or just a direct swap leaving all working?

How much have u got to spend?

I dont know of many good 6x9's, but a mate of mine purchased a pair of Sony 200W which cost 50 from most audio shops. I have to say, for 50 they produce sich a clear sound, alot of bass, and especially if you have an amp you will definately get the most out of the speakers. That is all i can advise, but for that price you cant go too wrong, and i promise they wont let you down. Its just a suggestion, but it all comes down to how much money you have to splash!!!

6x9's

I've got a set of the Pioneer TSE-6995's in my Bravo. Their good speakers, but you really need to amplify them properly. Their rated at 300watts peak power and i'm using a Pioneer amp putting out 100watts peak power on each channel which really isn't enough!, i've tried using my mates rockford fosgate 250.1 and they sound loads better with more power.

So basically as long as you can feed them enough power, yes they are very good speakers.
But be warned that by using 6x9's on the rear shelf, you'll destroy the sound stage of the car. Much better idea is to replace the standard rear speakers with a set of JBL 5x7's and replace the front speakers with a high quality set of components. Will sound much nicer!

Re: 6x9's

Ben, Dave, Si, and errr...Patrick cheers for ur advice guys!!

Obviously money is a big factor, but I think I'm gonna pay a little bit extra and go with the TSE-6995's.

I've got two 250W 10" subs in the back at the moment running off a 450W amp. A mate of mine has kindly donated a 250W amp which will do for the 6x9's for the meantime, then I can always replace it if I feel the need. I'm trying to balance the sound out a bit better at the moment, so may well replace the standard rear speakers as you suggested Si, but by the sounds of things I don't think I'll need to...

Cheers for all your help people!

speakers

For the front speakers Alpine do a good set of components, SPR135A's their 13cm and have a power handling of 220watts (meaning they really need to be amped). They give fantastic vocals with the tweeters placed in the standard Fiat dash positions. Their expensive at 100-150. depending where you get them from, but if you cam amplify them you won't be dissapointed.
Another option are Kenwood KFC-P503's again a very powerful speaker, but they will really lift the sound stage out of the footwell. A bit cheaper at 65.
For real audio quality go for JL's but your looking at 360. just for a set of 5" components. If you can't quite afford that Focal are always a good bet.

As for the rears, JBL do a 5x7" that fits the standard location, but i'm not sure of the model name. They cost 50. and i've seen them in Halfords.

Funckle.

What about Rockford Fosgate?? Def worth a look. One of the more expensive makes of Audio but little out there can match the quality of any Rockford equipment.

Re: nice one smith950

with components (such as the alpine mentioned) where do you put the x-over? or use the one already there, and just plug em straight into the current wires?

So far thinking of the alp's in the front and my pioneer 6x9 amp'ed in the back... good idea?
