Default Could this be the perfect BOSE 6x9 replacement.

I came across these yesterday, and I think it is finally what I am looking for, an almost perfect drop in replacement for the Bose 6x9.



I say its perfect for a couple of reasons.

1. You can drop it as a 1-way woofer and retain your Bose tweeter. Or

2. You can remove the Bose tweeter and install the removable one in the bose location or leave it in the swivel monut on the 6x9.

3. You can do what I am going to do and just use it as a 1-way woofer for lows and rear voice fill while allowing my front highs to bring the imaging up front.

The specs are great for a factory set up.

carbon-injected polypropylene woofer cone with butyl rubber surround
pivoting dome tweeter (removable for separate mounting)
Polyswitch tweeter protection circuit
power range: 2-180 watts RMS (360 watts peak power)
frequency response: 25-20,000 Hz
sensitivity: 95 dB



I have JBL 6x9s now, and they are nice, but do not get as low as they should. JBL is not known for their lows anyway.

Mine are on order, I will let you know what I think.

Jay

PS-I forgot to mention the price...$59.00. crutchfield.com

yes that looks like that would work.....because you would still have the Bass, and not have to install a 2 way speaker

A lot of people dont like audiobahn. I personally have had nothing but success with them. I have the 3-way of thoes and the bass is amasing when in the right enclosure. I have a thread showing what i did below somewhere.
If you really want to make them come alive get an amp for them.

I'd also consider the MB Quart RCE 269.

I was considering it as the woofer for replacing the stock Bose system in my wife'* 2001 Grand Prix GT, but never got around to doing it.

Take a look, it'* the same idea as you're looking at with the Audiobahns.

They do not fit in the stock locations, the cut outs are not big enough.

Downgrade.

I cant beleive that crutchfield said they would fit!

many of the aftermarket 6x9'* dont fit in the stock cutouts..it takes a little trimming to make them fit right.....a little trimming on the pods and you should be good to go....

They don't fit even with the spacers?

They look like a nice replacement for some. it would be tough to directly replace the premium level 6x9'* without rewiring.

you have to cut the plastic spacers to get most aftermarket to fit due to their larger baskets.
