Good Sound Quality is..Good.
When we looked around for the best 6×9 speakers for sound quality, what we found is that the Jl Audio C2-690tx is the best pick for most people – not only are they highly efficient as they can produce high sound quality without needing a bass (did we mention it has a bass without the use of subs), it’s also affordable and shouldn’t break your bank when you buy em’. They come in the pair of twos which means you don’t have to go through the trouble of buying a second pair.
#1 Jl Audio C2-690tx
Coming in the first place are the Jl Audio C2-690tx – these are the bread and butter when you need a pair of speakers that will do work. We mentioned these in our speakers without subwoofers articles but if you didn’t read that, just know that there are some audio sets that have a nice bass without the use of a subwoofer. (Jl C2-690tx is one of them). If you’re reading this article, then you most likely know what a good bass sounds like – the difference between a good bass and a bad bass is ever so apparent if you are listening to rap, rock or any music for that matter.
What we loved about the Jl C2-690tx is the fact that it has a nice tone and playing the melody through this unit makes it soothing as it can get. Finding a pair of speakers that could play music smoothly was probably the hardest task, but we were thankful that we found the Jl C2-690txs!
Another thing that we loved about the Jl C2-690tx is the tweeters on this thing! Take a look and see if notice a difference! That’s right, the tweeters on the Jl C2-690tx are not too bright. This is not an issue for most people but for those of you that are annoyed by overtly-bright tweeters, keep this in mind.
The C2-690tx is compatible with most cars so do not worry if you drive a Honda Civic or if you drive a four wheeler – this Jl C2-690tx will most likely be able to accompany it.
Unlike most speakers, the C2-690tx does come in pairs so hang one on the right side of your vehicle and then another one on the other side. This makes sure that your music will be evenly spread out – and it’s cost efficient, don’t need to buy a second one when it comes with two in the first place.
Now the hard specs on the C2-690tx are pretty impressive, to say the least – the speakers themselves can consume up to 125 watts and has an impedance of 4 ohms which is not too bad of speakers of this caliber.
When it comes to aesthetics, the Jl C2-690tx look might fine – just take a look yourself and image them in your car, not to bad huh?
If you need a good pair of audio sets, do not hesitate picking up the Jl C2-690tx today – you’ll be hardpressed to find another pair of speakers that are of the same caliber as these!
#2 Rockford Fosgate Punch P1692
If our main pick is out of stock we recommend getting the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1692 instead – what we loved about this audio set is its bass, no need for a subwoofer, hah! For under $100, you are getting a fantastic audio set that provides a high level of sound quality.
Now let’s talk specs.
Take a look at the P1692 – doesn’t it look like a work of art? Sleek and compact! What we loved about the basket design is that it is compact – if you are riding in a minivan and need to haul children back and forth between school and home, this might be your pick. It’s not too big that you’ll still be able to fit the little ones in when you install this thing. Plus, if you do decide to get the P1692, you won’t have to get subs (because the bass of this thing is so good!)
Now let’s talk actual specs. The P1692 comes up to a whopping 75 watt RMS which is not too bad considering that it can handle up to 150 watts of power. It’ll be able to play those high frequencies without being distorted.
The tweeters on the P1692 comes with a PEI dome which makes sure that it is kept secure – Furthermore, there is a crossover which is just another feature to make sure that it is secure when you attach it to your car.
We don’t think you’ll be able to find another audio set as cost efficient as the P1692 (and don’t get us started on the bass).
#3 Kicker 40CS6934
If you’re in a money pinch, what we recommend is getting the Kicker 40CS6934 – for the price, we don’t think you’ll find another pair of speakers this cheap and producing as high quality as the Kickers!
Onto the specs – what we found is that the Kickers are a 150 watt RMS device that will serve you well on the roads. Compared to all the other cheap speakers out there, when you first touch the speakers and let them play their tune, you’ll be blown back at how such an inexpensive pair of speakers can be so well done.
If you don’t believe us, just look at the reviews on Amazon – they’re rated highly and have a strong customer following. Pick up the Kickers today to get the most value out of your money!
Wrapping it up
Hopefully, this guide of the top 6×9 speakers helped you out picking out something that’ll stick with you for a long time. There are a lot of different speakers in the market, so looking through everything can be a major pain if you are looking for something that will not only be cost efficient but also a unit that looks good. The last thing we would like to add is that make sure the audio set fit your car before you hit that purchase button. On Amazon, they give you the option of putting in all your car information so do that, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of returning it! Best of luck on your search – we know you’ll find something good out there!
