6x9s for car

Hey guys

I got two 5" speakers in the passenger doors of my car - now i need some bass!

Its a citroen ax so other than the two in the passenger doors, i only really have the parcel shelf.

I have a kenwood something or other with 4x50w channels and a preout or two, but i wont be going sub due to the already small boot and it will prolly get nicked!

Recommendations?

I got a limit of £50

JBL GT series kick out a hell of a lot of bass. The Xplod series are decent and Alpine make some very nice higher end speakers.

We were wiring one of my mate's cars up and picked up some Alpine components. Driver, mid and tweeter. Clean bass, clear midrange and decent highs. If you don't mind laying out a little more than the 'normal' 6x9s, then I highly recommend doing that.

Oh, and make you're own parcel shelf out of some solid MDF and acoustic cloth (cheap to buy, Halfords stock it I think). It improves the sound from car speakers no end.

I've wired up a few cars with decent audio, a good parcel shelf makes a huge difference and is really easy to do if you model it on the one in there already.

may look into that but im just looking for somethin to tide me over before i sell it end of the year kinda thing.

ill be stealthing them using some acoustic cloth tho, as the parcel shelf has a dipped bit where i can literally stretch some cloth across hiding any evidence of speakers

Just need to remember 6x9's are designed for the parcel shelf dude, not in the doors or owt.

Sonys are very good for the wedge tbh. Remember to use some baton or mdf strips to strengthen the pacel shelf too.

on the hiding, even cheap speakers look fancy these days and may draw unwanted attention. I remember always being a fan of bazooka tubes for some bumpin bass in my days, strap em to the back seat in the trunk and BOOOOM!
