Speaker recommendations - 6.5 fronts
I will be updating my sound system very soon. I'm not looking to do a lot like add amps or woofers. Just looking to step up my old and outdated receiver as well as go with some 6.5's up front.
I have the mount plates for adding the 6.5" round speakers up front but not sure which to go with. I may just get a combo speaker that has the tweeter and all built in. BUT....I was also looking at the Component Speakers that have a 6.5" woofer and then a separate tweeter, usually 1" unit that can be surface mounted or recessed.
What have you guys gone with in a 6.5 arrangement? Did you get the all in one or did you do the component setup? If component, did you mount the tweeter to the same board as the woofer or did you mount it up high somewhere and where how did you mount? If I go this route, I'm either thinking of putting the tweeters up on the a pillar or maybe on the little plastic door trim that. Covers the side mirror nuts.
Just looking for some ideas and what you think sounds better a component setup or the all in one speaker.
