Why Buy Car Speakers?

A great way to improve your car's stereo system is by adding a set of high-quality 6 x 9 car speakers. These speakers improve your existing system by extending the response of your mid-range drivers and improving the system's high-frequency reproduction with built-in tweeters. However, whether your system already includes tweeters or not, you can achieve the best car audio sound possible with a set of high-quality aftermarket car audio speakers.

Car Speakers: What to Look For

There are scores of 6 x 9 car speakers on the market competing for your dollars, so consider these few things to ensure you get the best car speakers for your money. In this site, we compare the best car speakers on the market by gauging their sound quality, their potential output (performance), and the customer support that the manufacturers offer. Only the top 10 car speakers with the best sound, highest output and most impressive customer support made our list. Take a look at our top-rated products, the JBL GTO0938, the Infinity 9632cf and the Polk db691. Also, be sure to check our informative articles on car speakers.

Specs/Performance
A car speaker's range (measured by its frequency response), along with the amount of power that it can effectively use (quantified by the RMS Continuous Power category) and its efficiency are all key components to be aware of when you are considering what kind of sound levels your new 6 x 9 car speakers can produce. Your needs for frequency response may vary (depending on whether your system involves a subwoofer), but look for high efficiency and high power handling for maximum volume.

Sound Quality
We tested our car audio speakers in the most basic way possible: We hooked them up to a sound system and played some music. For each car speaker, we listened for distortion at multiple volume levels, the accuracy of the reproduced sound and the overall clarity of the music. When you're looking for top-end performance from your car speakers, sound quality is a huge factor.

Help & Support
Detailed instructions on installation and normal maintenance are important for every sound system, especially when you're replacing your factory-installed system with a new set of 6 x 9 car speakers. We looked for products that provide a warranty as well as email and telephone support. User manuals, FAQs sections and tutorials are also key components in helping you improve your car stereo system.

In a few cases, manufacturers will require that your car speakers be installed professionally to maintain their warranty. While the speakers' FAQs and manuals do adequately explain how to install these systems, it's best to have them installed professionally to avoid problems and to maintain a clean, orderly look.

When you're on a quest to improve your car's stereo system, you can't go wrong by adding a good set of 6 x 9 car speakers. Look for a set of car speakers with enough power to match your needs that also provide clean, clear sound with a wide frequency response range. The best car speakers will provide both of these, along with enough customer support to get your new system set up and sounding great without a problem.
