I want to replace the stock 6x9s in the rear, and would like to get some opinions on whether to go with 2-ways or 3-ways. (Currently no subs in the rear)

Thanks in advance!

I have Polk Audio 3 ways as of now and they hit every note perfect except the deeper bass notes, the highs are nice. they cost me close to 200 bucks for the pair but they were worth every penny. They only have like 25 rms going to them now but they can take 150-200 rms, and have a 300 watt peak. they are quality!
:D very happy with them

I use Kenwood 3-ways. The sound great over the stock ones, pretty good bass too. Be sure you leave the little foam things in. You wouldn't think so but the help with the bess response immensely.

I now have a seperate amp and sub, but I am still using the Kenwood 6x9s (through a high pass filter so the don't get fed the 20-80hz deep bass) and they still sound great. Only $80 for the pair.

I've got Kicker K69 2 ways. they pound and sound crystal clear! I love them! You'd think I had a 10" sub in the trunk because these things play so low! :D

I'm VERY happy with my Polk ex693a's. Last years models so they're going cheap,too. Got mine on clearance for just under $90.00. Can't match 'em for twice that. Check out epinions.com for other reviews.

I'll have to agree that the Polk EX693a's are an awesome 6x9. They are very accurate and if installed in a vehicle with a sealed trunk they will put out quite a bit of bass...of course you will be limited on how low they go b/c of a 6x9's physical limitations. You should still be able to get a pair for around $85-$90 on clearence either through Circuit City or Crutchfield.com Other things to take in to consideration are whether you plan on adding a subwoofer in the future and whether you want just loud...or clear and accurate. If you plan on adding a sub the fact that a 6x9 doesn't go any lower than say 60hz is a mute point. I personally prefer the majority of the sound in my vehicle to eminate from the front...I mean when you go to a concert you face the stage right? Your back isn't facing the stage so why have the majority of your sound from the rear. Just depends on your preference. Sorry bout the long post. Hope it helps.

The Polk Audio 6x9's i have are the higher end EX369 they have a silk dome tweeter and super tweeter for ultra detailed high frequency reproduction < from Crutchfeild lol, but these are about 40 bucks more than the EX693a's, but they are worth it as i said before.

I'd think the RoadGear stuff you see a Wallyworld would easily beat the factory crap. I'm looking into the Polks or the Infinitys.

New Discovery:
I was looking threw the MA Audio Catalog, and I found some 6x9 woofers. I have never tryed them or seen them yet. But I am thinking of ordering a set to see what the sound would be like. Has anyone see or heard of these?

TIA
