6x9 install in bags

Im looking to put 4 6x9s two in each bag. I do want loud but I care about quality more than anything. Want a clean clear sound. Not sure if I should go with Polk mm651 or jl mx650 or The infinity speakers. A buddy of mine has infinity and they do sound good but all reviews show the other 2 have a better sound quality. What brand are you sound heads going with?

I also don't want to order new lining for fin what are you replacing those speakers with 6x5s or 5x7s?

Was looking to use one of the new ken wood decks. Is a certain wiring company better than others I've seen on here? I want my hand controls to still work

Thanks in advance

Hawg Wired or Biketronics for the wiring kit.

According to the reviews the Focal PC 690 is a better speaker, I don't know. It actually cost a little less also. I have the Polk MM's in my bags right now, they're good, but I've been told the Hertz and Focal will provide more bass...... this stuff gets expensive.

Those are rated at 50 less watts of power handling. Does it really matter? Fug if I know.

I've heard DB's MMs though and they sound good too. The 2 ohm set up wouldn't work for me.

why go 6x9? I can get you custom lids that hold either 7.7 or new 8.8 jl audio speakers .Or you can use speaker of choice. They look killer plus angeled towards you for sound. I personally do not like the 6x9 option because the sound goes straight up. I sell these lids with or without speakers.If interested pm me and we can talk more. I think you would be happy with this option and ability to hear the sound.
