the bin, 6x9's are crap, especially once you have a sub, they run basically the same freq ranges and tend to cancel each other out, 6x9's are really only good if you dont wanna run a sub IMO.

Agreed, get rid of the 6x9s they're no good for you.

Sell them, bin them, whatever. Don't waste your time installing them.

The 6x9 encroaches on 10" sub territory, and the oval speakers don't sound as good as round ones. The ONLY use for them, is profiteering for salesmen at JB/Strathfield etc.

IMHO, 6x9's belong on the parcel shelf, with the high frequency pass filter off so it blocks bass sounds, and give a mellow crisp sound to fill the rear of your cabin.

6x9s dont run the same freq as subs as a 6x9 cant go as low as 20 hrtz
Every day purchased 6x9s go as low as 40 hrtz and as high as 2500 hrtz a sub usaly only goes as high as 500 hrtz
6x9s are great with subs as yuou can tune your amp to run them higher than 150 hrtz which will allow you to run your sub at optimum efficiency
Subs only clash with 6x9s when the tuning is up the crapper and tuned by a cowboy

6x9 are good to use in my opinion. I have installed mine on the parcel shelf and I must admit I had to set the frequencies a little higher for the back im thinking because the subs drown out the highs out a bit more. (if you know what I mean) but I would recommend putting them on the back shelf. Or if you want to be a little tricky maybe in the frond door area….. but I have mine in the back and the seem to be ok. I hope this helps abit.
