Car speaker advice please (6x8") Kenwood vs Pioneer

14
Found 3rd Apr 2012
It's time to replace the wooden sounding speakers in the Jag, they are standard Ford 6x8" fit. The head is stock and the style of music is rock and acoustic (so need good mids).

So far I've narrowed it down to two speakers with a focus on sensitivity (+90db), budget is around the £50 mark.

Pioneer TS-A6813i
Kenwood KFC S6893c

So does anyone else have a preferred speaker that fits in with these specs?

Try here dga. It's a cracking car audio forum talkaudio.co.uk/ipb…ums

I bought some superb used Dynaudio speakers for about the same price.

Nope. Try to explain like I'm a 5 year old
Where are you planning on placing these speakers? I would of gone for speakers from Rainbow or Hertz.

TalkAudio != TalkRadio = TalkSport.


Oh. Right.

Did I ever mention where I live?

I don't think you're all spackers


Had to urban dictionary that. Don't know whether to feel flattered or insulted.
You should opt for a pair of speakers that come with tweeters as that'll emphasize your highs (acoustic tracks) really well. And maybe think about putting a small sub in the boot for the bass from the rock music?
