im getting 6x9's put in the back of my ED soon, ive got factory pioneer 6's in the back, which arnt that bad, i was wondering if it would sound any better if i put the factory 6's in the front when the 6x9's go in the back, would it make it better? or make any difference?, theres speakers in the front doors already but mounted in it, and also would it be hard to do? im not doing it myself im getting them installed, do you think they will do it for me?

I'd toss them away and get a set of splits up the front - woofer in the door and the tweeters placed up in the dash. You'll need to run them off the amp, but will sound so much better than the factory speakers. Personally if you're getting a good sub, the 6x9s won't be much use. You'd be better off leaving the factory speakers in the back and run the sub and splits off the amp.

I agree with Kingy, with the amp on the way, go a good set of splits up front, and with a sub on the way, save a few bucks and get a good set of 6" in the back rather than 6x9's. Rear speakers are generally a courtesy for rear passengers so they can hear the top end of the music, and 6" generally produce better top end than 6x9's. 6x9's have better bass, but with a subby it makes it insignificant. The factory Pioneer rear speakers are slightly better than the front ones, but they are made of a paper cone and are no where near as good as after market speakers. In terms of changing the front speakers, it isn't too hard, but a set of Safety Torx sockets is required. An installation mob would change it, for what price I dunno, I did mine myself. I reccommend purchasing the amp, subby and splits all together that way you can get componants that will be satisfactorally matched to each other within your budget. I'm now onto my second car stereo, so I hope this helps a little.

On the way: Lowering, tinting, exhaust, this list could be endless.......
it does not sound like you want an amp to me..I am not sure of your ed but my old eb falcon had pioneers all round and I personally beieve that there is not a better car stereo speaker on the market. I bought some super doopa speakers a few years ago and put 1 in only.I had also installed a nice head unit..
The sound was terrific all except for that 1 new one .Dont under estimate the speakers that you have...I would be looking at a better radio...
Ps I ended up putting the old speaker back in and it was terrific.Sounded really good..
[QUOTE=useless]I personally beieve that there is not a better car stereo speaker on the market.
I disagree on this particular comment useless.... Pioneer produced quality speakers back in the day, whereas now they're manufactured cheaply in China. Just look at what Pioneer's sell for a JB Hifi and the like and u'll see what i mean... Pick one up and it immediately becomes apparent why a set of 6 inch splits retail for $200. Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer and God knows what other brands come out of the same factory believe it or not...
In terms of sound quality european brands like focal and american brands like Boston Acoustics leave Pioneer's stuff for dead... In this particular area the saying 'you get what you pay for' holds true...
Thats my 2 cents worth anyways... :)
