Can one of the gurus recommend 2-way 6" x 9" oval coaxials with built-in LPF & HPF crossover networks?
Thanks.

Ofcourse. Why waste tweeter pods. So few manufactuers even think of providing them.

all 2way speakers have a HPF and LPF. The HPF is for the tweeter and the LPF for the woofer.

In the Optra, there are four of them, one of each door.

Not the case with most 6x9s and coaxes. I think nura is asking about a 6x9 with a crossover for both woofer and tweeter sections.

yes they do but the ones i saw had about 10-12" of wire coming out for the tweeter and woofer so the tweeter and woofer could only be about 20-24" apart. most "regular" crossovers allow the user to choose the length of wire from crossover to each driver.

I have a pair of Pioneer 6" x 9" TS-D690R ovals with LPF -6dB/ octave choke coil for woofer & HPF -12dB/ octave LC network for tweeter. Unfortunately one of the speakers developed a hissing noise & had to be sent for repairs. The repairer has got rid of the hiss but unfortunately also most of the bass. When I compared the repaired speaker with the unrepaired one, I also found that the tweeter had been mounted upside down or maybe it's just the grille over it that's upside down. I'll try & post some pictures tomorrow but I guess I have to say goodbye to these speakers soon.
I was thinking of a gradual upgrade. I suppose I'll have to go for a total one, now.

Thats correct, I always wondered what that silver box was until I realised it was a cross over.
