    I am wanting to purchase some component speakers to put in my double cab. I have found some eclipse 6.5" (for rear doors) for $149.99.

    I also found some eclipse 6x9 (for front doors) for $82.15.

    My question is: which is better 6x9 or 6.5? And I use the term "better" loosely. The reason i asked, these are basically the same speakers except size. I always thought 6x9 were "better" that 6.5? I just don't understand that big of a price difference.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would recommend going with the 6.5 components. Your going to get a better acoustic sound with a round speaker vs. an oval speaker
