    little help please

    got a full ice set up at the min with jl front and back door speakers with additional tweeters running of one jl amp and 2 x 10" subs running of a jl mono block amp but want it a little louder, not messed about with any of the settings on the amp as its left as it was set but whats peoples thoughts on 6x9's? is it a big no or a yes, obv would keep system the same and go for some more jl but should i just try and tweak it up as im running the sound of a pioneer avix x1rbt?

    also running a diesel battery but on standard altinator with the aircon so its a bit better then a normal altinator but would it be worth running a seperate battery in the spare wheel well or just get a yellow top and replace it with the car battery on now or will the diesel one be ok, i dont compete just like my music when im driving about to and from work and want best power and sound for my own use

    cheers guys

    Well depending on how much SPL your subs are putting out the 6x9 voice coils can get damaged when the subs force the cones of the 6x9s in a mannor that they wernt ment to move, so you get like a buzzing sound and distorsion if it still works. I say your best bet is to amp some high power tweeters to get the loudness.

    What EQ are you running on the pioneer HU?
    If its superbass you wont have much high freq

    6X9 a big no! Stick with what you got. When you say left as it was set, set by whom? If you mean how you got them out of the box well them obviously you need to set your gains properly.

    Also when you say louder, in what regard, Bass? or out and out volume? BTW the 6x9 will not give you lounder volume per se.

    Get yourself some good components and rears like JL,polk,mission...ect and then amp them, A second battery is always a good thing, Make sure it's gel if your planning to use some inventive mounting positions or if it is an acid jobby make sure you run a breather pipe for it to vent
