in my opinion I think Pioneer 3 or 4 way 6x9 sounds really good crisp and has a decent bass to it as well. with a price of about 120 or so at best buy

well I have some infinity kappa 6x9's amp powered and doesnt seem to be cutting it.

maybe I just need to get a good bass cd and try to tune it. seems like they should be making more bass than they are

I remember back in they day a friend had some JBL 6x9's and it was like :eek: compared to how mine are right now

I'd hate to get rid of my kappa's because I've had them foreva!! it would be like loosing a good friend :lol:

but if I have to in order to get decent bass I guess I could take a 90% loss on what I originally paid and get something else :guns: :lol:

I'd slap in a single 10" or 12" sub if you want some thump...
exactly. 6x9's arent for bass. They're to fill in the rear of the compartment.If anything throw some nice 6.5" 's back there. and a nice 12 in the trunk.

like I was sayin before, I've heard some pretty decent bass out of 6x9s before. I know the limits of them, and for now im fine with that

in that case.. remind me to fire up the Clarions in the Z at the bash.. they sound pretty good for 6x9's

i don't think i'll be putting any subs in the car this year..

Yup. I had pioneer 6x9's in my old Z and, while they sounded decent, they didn't even come close to comparison after I installed a JL 12" woofer. Get a sub+amp and be done with it. :wink: But if you're just looking to have 6x9's i'd go with pioneer, mine shook my mirrors and I even had people ask me what kind of sub I had in the trunk. The look on their faces was priceless after I told them there wasn't one. :lol: I also had them running off the stock H.U., I could only imagine what they would sound like with an amp. :eek:
