...

because most folks that run components are after the sound that 6.5 inch speakers deliver. However those IDs are very nice just kind of spendy . . .

Yeah, why not 6x9's?

I'm considering ordering a new speaker set up soon and I've been considering 6.75" fosgate punch components but now i've heard so much about the 6x9's i'm considering the 6x9 fosgate punch 2 ways.

Anyone have input/suggestions on this?

Focal iss690 is a good option for the money.

6x9s were most likely designed for space restrictions in vehicles, not sure, but I'd be willing to bet. There has to be a reason that ALL home speakers use round components only? They reproduce more accurate sound.

there is nothing wrong with using a 6x9 for quality sound. Its all in the tuning, and besides who wouldnt want a larger cone driver in the doors?
What happens though, is that by nature of design, the "corners" of a 6x9 are slightly more stiff then the rest of the cone.
