This was a great buy for the price. Don't let it fool you. These were an excellent edition to my front component speakers. Wow!!!! You don't need to spend a whole load of money to get great quality sounds. Just get some research and reviews going and you are on your way. Sonic is always a good start

April 8, 2009 One of the best 6x9's

The Power Acoustik XP-694K XP 6x9 speakers are a couple steps up from last years model (XP2K series). Every part of the speaker is better. The surround is a soft rubber than gives the speaker a longer lifespan and not foam like last years, the cone is stiffer, but could even be stiffer, the voice coil is stronger. Power Acoustik changed from the electromagnet to a "regular style" magnet and this magnet is very strong when compared to other speakers in a $40-120 price range. The tweeters are a huge step up from the XP2K's and the basket is coated to prevent rusting.

The Power Acoustik XP-694K XP 6x9 speakers sound so much better than last years XP2K, they even sound better than JL Audio's 6x9's (JL Audio's don't produce enough highs), Toyota Tundra JBL System (JBL's don't produce enough highs, but have a lot more bass) and Alpine Type-S (not as clean sounding) series speakers. The mid bass is smooth, but the speaker does need more Xmax so the cone can travel further. The tweeters sound fantastic, not to bright, and you're able to hear so much more detail in a song, recording, or movie.

Just so everyone knows powering these with just the CD/DVD head unit will not make these speakers come alive. I'm using a Power Acoustik BAMF 1200/4 4-way amp. The BAMF1200/4 is sending 100 watts to each speaker and they sound so much better compared to when I was powering them with 50 watts each. Make sure your amp is 100 watts at 4 ohms with a Signal-to-Noise Ratio from 95 to 100 for best results.

Overall it's a great sounding and very attractive (the grill is ok) speaker, but I can't give it more than 4 out of 5 for performance because of the bass when I compared these to the JBL's. Power Acoustik really needs to increase the 6x9 cone travel.

I had 3 sets of 6x9's before I landed on these and I am now a fan of power acoustik products. I've used these for over a year pushing over 100 RMS at time's. They cover the mids and highs very well. I would recomend these to someone that knows how to run after market stereos. These are no comp speakers but perfect for starter/semi comp user's

So-so replacement speakers for the 2007 Honda Accord. The speakers are actually too tall to put the original Honda speaker covers back on, and the covers that come with the speakers actually dont fit in the groves of the car.

The biggest issue I had with this product was that the hook up wires that came with the speakers were fragile as hell. It felt like working with dry noodles; the wires kept breaking.
