JL 6" Rear Deck Subs

Hi,

I have a coupe and the HK deck speakers are bottoming out on certain tracks. A car stereo store recommended that I replace the 6" stock speakers in the deck with JL's. They indicated I did not need to install a new amp. I asked for a simple upgrade that would help the problem I am experiencing. They suggested this fix over installing a self-powered bass tube. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tom

I didn't know JL Audio was making 6" subs. I know Kicker used to make 6x9 subs but discontinued them a while ago.

I'm pretty sure that's what they (the shop) was referring to, unless they meant to keep the stock 6x9's and replace the 6" mids?

Anyway, I'd still recommend just going w/ a dedicated sub system w/ a new amp. I'm not sure how much power is going to those stock sub channels, but even if you upgraded the driver, there still won't be as much bump as you'd probaby want.

JL makes 6WO's which are actually 6.5". For the size these thing sound great.
