Question 6X9 Vs Components for rear

Hi Gurus,

One Koshun, if some one has normal coax speaker in front & is not going for amp+sub setup, then which speakers are better 6X9s or compos ??

I have seen people opting for 6X9s but some how I feel Compos should be better.

Please tell

If you need a bit of bass then the 6x9 are a better option for the rear which I think is what most people prefer.

I thought the woofer in a Compo set up would give better bass, hmm so I was wrong. Thanks for clarifying

in a componet set it is the midbass not a woofer....it is a genaral term used to name it a woofer.....

No it cannot match the bass of a woofer even a 8 inch one also...

a 6x9 has about the surface area of a 8" cone. So unless your component set uses a 8" woofer (or larger) the 6x9 will make more bass. the components however will articulate better.

Xenos doesn't 'make HU's or speakers. They are imported.

Xenos is not owned by Mico. It is a brand owned by Pricol. Their security systems are manufactured under licence from Directed.
