Default Rear Car Speakers and Tweetrs for Santro Xing

I've 2003 Santro Xing XP. I want to replace the rear speakers and want to go for 6 inches (which fits the satndard company provided rear speaker enclosure for Santro). I want to go for good quality high powered rear speakers for it. The one I found with highest output is Pioneer A1682S which has 280 watts of output. Please suggest me if it is the good one and also if any better option is available.

Also, suggest me good tweetrs for front.



Thanks in advance
-Ravi

Rear speaker location in the Santro is 5.25" and its quite tacky. No point getting very high quality speakers for that location.

Also I'd seriously HPF those speakers. when the speakers are pushed, at about 60-80Hz, the plastic flaps like a pair of elephant's ears.

From a ICE perpective the Santro is one of the worst cars if one uses the OEM pods. In 1999 my mom was choosing between a Santro and a Matiz and the ICE made the choice for her.

for the rear? in a Santro? not if you are using the OEM pods. You first have to strengthen those pods.

Thanks for the responses. I get the feeling that it will not be a good idea to put 6 inches speaker at rear.

In that case, let me know the best option of 6x9 speakers (to be put in the rear on the modified back tray).

Default Rear speakers for my Santro

Hi Gurus,

I am looking to replace my rear speakers for my Santro. I use a Pioneer 2990MP HU without an amp. Previously I had Pioneer 6" round multirange speakers which are dead now. I looked @ JBL, Boston & Hertz. I would prefer to go for Coaxial speakers.

My budget is around 5-6K with speaker planks.

Any inputs would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rajiv

hey mate, you can try looking at gto948 from jbl, they would fit your budget fine & are also decent. I have no idea about hertz or boston though.
However, my personal experience says that if the setup is to be used without an amplifier & without a subwoofer, there's nothing more VFM than Pioneer 6*9. Do check them out as well.

You could go for either 6" round or 6X9 oval speakers from any reputed brand. They should cost you between 3000 to 5000 depending on what you choose.

Try and listen to as many as possible before you buy.

I agree, I have these in my Zen since three years now (the blue cone variety) and I am yet to find speakers more powerful than these when comparing setups similar to my current setup that has no external amplifier or a subwoofer, but, it would be better if you Low Pass them, their tweeters drag the soundstage all the way to the rear as they are highly sensitive speakers just like majority of 6X9 speakers.
