    Default Are 6x9's chavvy???

    Reason I ask is because a while ago I installed a sub. Hated it, wasn't the right sound I was looking for so I flogged it.

    What I'm after is nice punchy bass yet subtle when needed. In my teens (10 yrs ago :-o) I used to have some 6x9's which had decent bass.

    Question is.... Is it chavvy to have 6x9's in your parcel shelf nowadays? I have components in the front and standard in the rear, even if I changed the speakers in the rear for same size components it wouldn't give me the sound I'm after :-/

    Yes to be honest.

    Subs are still the way forward.

    May I ask what sub and amp you had before?

    It is more likely it just wasnt suited to your music taste

    Go for it! If it's the sound you are after then why not? You can stealth shelf it like said before if you are worried about what people think. I used to have a set of JBL 6x9's in my nova when I was 17 lol, they were awesome lol. Mounted on a home made mdf shelf

    Do you go to concerts and stand with your back to the stage too?

    they are a bit chavvy imo but mainly the issue is you dont need them.

    good front speakers and a sub is all you need really.
