Default Awsome Speakers

i am lookin for some 6.5in speakers or maybe some 6x9 speakers that can take lots of power... i need it to be in the 100-300w rms and max be around like 400-800w... i havent really found alot of speakers that can take this much power... i dont know about size but in my jeep i need 6.5 but am planning to get a new car soon so i dont know. Well to think about it i need 5 1/4 and 6x9s because these are going to go in my new car.. VW GTI 1992. I dont know if it is easy to modify it to 6.5 in the doors but i will try... so if anyone can post some speakers to meet this capability please do so... any of the sizes mentioned above.


thx

i can see 100W rms but your not talking a 5.25/6.5" that could actually handle 300Wrms a piece are you?

Hi,

the only way you'll get drivers that can handle that much power
without excursion limiting is if they have stupidly low efficiency.

So basically you will not be able to find such drivers. You need to
readjust your expectations and concentrate on SPL (excursion)
capability and with driver efficiency the amount of power needed.

/sreten.

6x9s have traditional never been aimed towards high power applications. You will not find any rated for that kind of power handling. There are usally for factory replacements. Oval speakers generally are not very accurate anyway and all lack meaningful X-overs. I would put that power to better use.

Even component systems are usually not rated for that. a/d/s/ and boston acoustics used to have nice three-way systems.

Also, 6x9s are better for rear fill. Why destroy from soundstage?

For these and other reasons, you won't find monster 6x9s.

what model of amp, most 4 channels put out full power into 2ohms on all channels so with a typical 4 speaker 4 ohms setup you only get~half power

What are the specs of your amp? If you do have a jeep, my choice would be to run a set of high quality components up front and get an effienct enclosure for bass in the back. See if your amp can run in 3-channel mode, where you bridge the last two channels for a mono output. Then build this: http://www.billfitzmaurice.com/plans.../products_id/7

Efficiency is everything in an open vehicle.
