bent is an unknown quantity at this point

I am doing a bit of research as I want to upgrade from the crappy factory speakers.

For the same diameter (6.5") is a 3-way speaker better then a 2-way speaker?
I would have thought the 3-way would be better but there are many more expensive speakers that are 2-way (of course with better quality materials).

Also would a 6" speaker fit into the 6.5" mounting? if so, are there any benefits of the 6.5" over the 6"? I would assume that as the woofer is slightly bigger then a lower range can be achieved. Is this correct?

I was thinking about the Kenwood KFC-m1625ie 3-ways. Does anyone know if they're any good?

The best way for clear and seperated sound is to go to component speakers where each speaker is seperate.
read about in the following link.

More on this subject is here.


If you don't have room to mount all of the different speakers or don't want to go thru all of the trouble then the choice is yours.
Just remember it is better to have speakers in your car, then to get in over your head with installing more then you are capable or wanting to. This usually ends up with a half finished job or having a stereo store finish it.

Sometimes a 6" will fit in the 6.5" but I wouldn't count on it. It depends on the actual hole size.

They do make adapter rings for some speakers/vehicles.


Here is a link to 6.5"speakers
There are also reviews on some of the speakers.

a 6.5"speaker will usually produce better bass but that depends on a lot of things. Speaker travel and how much power it can handle/ how much power is being sent to speaker etc.

One thing to remember is don't by a speaker that is rated for a 200watts and power it with 40. It doesn't produce very good results.


Hopefully this will help with your install. Good Luck.
Hope I didn't confuse you more.

You don't need everything that this site recommends. Budget/Best sound is the most important.

i highly highly recommend you get componet speakers also.. you will be very happy.

Although what 2samiam said about powering a 200watt speaker w/ only 40 isnt really true. Right now i have 6.5" componets powered by the deck (22watts rms each) and they sound amazing! but they're supposed to handle 100-150watts rms which i will be giving them shortly
