You will crossover the speakers and subwoofer @ 80Hz...so for reproduction of sound above 80Hz is not much of a problem for 6-6.5" hence using 6X9's is point less
Yikes!!! Which means it would make no sense to add a sub later....!!!

I think for Vivek, the 6X9 combo with a 4" co-ax was necessary at that time. He couldn't afford more, his alto stock fitment is a 4"....there are no 4" components anymore, and considering he likes a lirrle bottom end and the subwoofer is in the future, not in the present...
I think you're doing OK vivek

yes getting the biggest cops that can fit in the front would be nice. like said before the 6x9s you got act like a pair of 8" woofers with limited Xmax. so can work the bass for a bit (till you can offload them) and get a sub.

well if the subwoofer is not available then the 6x9 will do a nice job of being a substitute.

as far as 4" components sam, remember we are talking to vivek. he is the next gen navin. he can DIY a pair if his car demands it. take a 4" coax. strip of the tweeter. insert phase pulg where the tweeter was. buy 2 tweeters. build XO. all this is just up Vivek's alley. that is what a younger naivn would have done. LOL

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. I would love to do such stuff. But ripping apart brand new speakers would be heart-breaking, don't you think?

Speaking of DIY, it would not be too difficult to build my own parcel tray, would it? I just love woodworking with my circular saw, disc grinder and impact drill. I want to be like Tim 'the toolman' Taylor Navin was mentioning in the other thread.

hhhmmm..sounds good..DIY,ya buddy thats a good idea if u like to sweat it out...and ya one more thing i wonder how u get that much time to do all this stuff apart from tending to ur work...well if u got plenty of time to spare get done with ur car and and and lets see maybe u can work on my car too to kill the free time u so seem to have ...just kidding(actually i somehow have a feeling u would love to be around when my car is being done up with the works amounting to more than 50k by an amazing person whose knowledge about car audio is as deep as an ocean)...what say vivek,im sure ul enjoy it..

Navin, do you seriously think ripping off the tweeter and putting in a phase plug for the 426e is worth pursuing? Where do I get a phase plug?
