Default Best 6" Coaxials?

This is for a Polo. I've decided to stick to OEM speaker locations and upgrade the Head unit to a JVC AVX 830.

I'm looking for the best sound possible from coaxials in the door locations. No Component speakers for this car. I'm told Infinity has a really nice 6" set at around Rs. 4500 a pair. Any other suggestions?

If you can indeed get an Infinity ( but which? ), it should be a great buy.

I would suggest Auditor co-ax if you are on budget. Brilliant they are for the price. Check ICE'd A Star thread by me.

I have 2 pairs of 6 inch JBL coaxial speakers in my i10. Can't recollect the exact model number right now.

All 4 speakers are fitted in the doors. I am satisfied with the sound quality.

Well. no one really can suggest or say which is the best co-axial without you telling us what music you listen to and how you like it (Bass heavy, etc.) Loads of brands out there. For example I like my music bass heavy so I have a pair of Hifonics Zeus co-axials mated to a pair of Boston acoutics 6 inch components in front.

So it all depends on your taste and its always best to get a demo before you install it. Esp if you can hear them in an installed car.

I should've mentioned that I'm eyeing the Infinity Kappa 63.9 3 way 6.5 inch Coaxials for both pairs. Problem is they're not easily available.

Hi Prasanth,

Have you fitted the polk audio db651 in your polo? How is it? For what price you got it?

I am looking for a good rear door speaker for my fabia and keen to know about the performance of db651 in rear door.

You should audition the Focal Access series, they are pretty good and have good sound quality. They are slightly on the brighter side, so if you like your high frequency more pronounced, you'll like it.

DLS performance series coaxials are good. DLS are very neutral and produce excellent sound quality. Both are premium brands and from the basic series range.

One Suggestion - Invest in set of good components in the front, you can settle for co-axials in the rear. Front components make a world of difference.

You can comfortably fit an 6.5 " speakers with the help of an spacer in the door pads. I have heard good reviews about infinity, and while you are at it, along with the recommendations above, try Morel components/co-axials too. They are fairly neutral.

Helix blue 6.5 2 way full range coaxial are pretty good as well. I have Helix components on front and back on my vento and they sound great. Helix tweeters have absolute brilliant clarity and the mini woofer has very nice base and so for varied songs, it works out very well. Do try them out. My suggestion which I always follow is go to the installer and choose the best speaker for your liking. Since you have decided on the kind of speaker - coaxial, get the wiring done and test the ones you like and then install the best.

What would be the best bet for OHC front doors, and rear tray?

I have Quad speakers at home, and definitely would prefer that sound.
