I'm considering purchasing higher end 6.5" coaxials for mounting in the rear to get decent bass.
Any thoughts on these models:

1. Rockford Fosgate FRC-4206U
2. Rockford Fosgate HPC-2206
3. MB Quart DKE-116
4. Infinity 6002i

My setup will be an Alpine CDA-9831 head unit with a Rockford Fosgate P4004 amp. Right now I have Kicker K60's in the doors.
1 realize adding a sub is the best way to get the most low end bass, but any thought or other suggestions for the rears would be great!

I guess tangband has some really high excursion 6.5s, and RE has some comming out...

12mm one way linear Xmax... that is just retarded for a 6.5

Adire just brought out a new 6.5 with some crazy kind of excursion to it.

Older OZ's you say, eh? Nice. I like Oz.

I always like the older RF Audiophile 6.5s that I had (and later re-bought a used pair because I do like them so much).

What I am VERY happy with are my B&W 7" midbass, but than that isn't a 6.5 and they aren't excactly easily available.

The comps RE released a few months ago are going to be their lower of the two lines. They have an incredible price to performance ratio.

The new comps will be the XXX series. They look to be very interesting but are going to be too deep for many installs I'm figuring.
