Default Boss 6 x 9 for open baffle

this speaker can be found for less than US$12 shipped. Its well made, and should sound very good in open baffle applications. In my little room sitting on another speaker without any baffle, cello, vocals, guitars, and slapped upright bass sound well balanced and excursion controlled on the bass track plus there's good details. I'm pleasantly surprised.

Boss BRS69 6x9

or home theater (if my Onkyo's protection circuit doesn't kick in from multiple ~4 ohm loads) - let GM pick up a pair.

here's a hefty 4ohm Boss 10" I bought for $19.99 shipped - it came with a nice metal grill and accurate T-S -IIRC Qt ~0.5

that's a solid metal phase plug under the garish chrome plastic ring - guess the ring is good to keep things from rubbing.
~2.5" voice coil

OK, this the 2nd time to this page and both times it lists $13 plus shipping unless I spend $35.

Thanks, but my experience with epay has been uniformly bad, so don't consider them anymore.

Probably would sound worse in an array due to comb filtering
