Default Audiophile Quality 6x9s

Ok recently I got a 1991 Grand Am and me being someone that loves audio wanted to put new head unit, speakers, and more in.. I replaced the back 6x9s but they aren't what I'm looking for as the sound quality isn't the best. I have searched the internet and found nothing on what is the best pair of 6x9s to get as far as quality goes. It is of course an infinite baffle so yea. Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thank you for your time.

lots of choices. Just depends on how much you want to spend and how loud you want to get.

Try the DLS 7"x10", they work great.Largest cone area available.
2" voice coil,1" dome tweeter
30 or 40oz. magnet...
They love power.....You wont be diappointed...

Poly cone,rubber surround..... External passive x-over

Mounting can be tricky,under mounting is recommended


Research everything before you buy anything and know what sort of results your expecting

Not quite as expensive:

The spec's are not BS.

Have you thought about mounting a tweet and a small woofer to a plate that would fit the 6X9 cutout? Seems that would give you more options. Either way, I hope they swap out better than the 89 Grand Am I did(seemingly took forever) good luck.

Best if you can go listen to them, but less places do that here. I prefer a coax back there with a smooth tweeter, maybe infinity though they are sometimes weaker in the midbass. Most all 6x9 are built for IB.

Audiophile , 6x9, and rear speakers, are all statements that do not belong together.

No audiophile would ever use 6x9's, and no audiophile would ever consider buying top notch 6x9's to put behind themselves.

If your looking to make your grand am sound good, then spend your money on a quality headunit, quality speaker amp, and a quality set of component speakers up front.

That is a matter of your opinion. But I would agree a good HU/processors/front drivers are most important for SQ. Amp does not have to be great to make good sound, but some work better than others for various reasons.

There is nothing wrong with oval speakers, some high priced home equipment uses them. There is nothing wrong with rear speakers, though a matter of user choice, I just want a left channel and the rear gives me that. Otherwise the left is pretty much in front of me and mono. I hate mono.

IMO larger mids are better in general, 6x9 is larger.
