New Cycle Sounds Lids, Need help deciding on 6x9's!

Hey guys! I just recieved my new Cycle Sounds Lids and am about to get them painted, and while they are out, I was trying to figure out what speakers to go with... I will be using a PBR300x2 to power the 6x9's. Does anyone have an Idea of what would sound good in these saddlebags? I know sound is subjective to everyones ear, I just need a nudge in the right direction. I have 4 Polk audios in the front running off a PBR300x4, but I have heard that the Polk 6x9's come up a little lacking in the bass dept. What do you guys think?

Is there a car stereo store close to you where they have a display where you can compare different speakers? Or you can also check online for different reviews, and check places like Crutchfield where they review and rate many different products.

Id say the polk mm's on infinitys. Something thats two ohms so you get the most out of that pbr. Post pics when they get painted!

I'm running all infinity kappas @ 2 ohms. But you have to make sure whatever 6x9 speaker you chose will have the clearance to allow the cover to fix properly.

How is the quality of the lids? are they going to require a lot if prep work? I'm thinking of getting a set.

Tried Best Buy, You can never find the mobile audio salesperson... SMH! I read a review on the internet, it was called "The Ultimate 6x9 ShootOut" The rated the Soundstream SST6.9 as the best for overall sound quality and value, and this was out of 23 dfferent brands including some higher end models!

Definitely will! I like Polk's for clarity, although to me they have been lacking on bass...

We need a link to this. Sounds like a really good piece of reference material.

The quality is excellent! They shouldn't take hardly any prep work. As for the clearance they are pretty deep set and should be bolted from the bottom up, which should make it easier if I ever need to remove the speaker.
