Factory 6x9

Recommended Posts

i've heard that the factory 6x9 are specially designed with 2 speakers (1 on top of another).

Can someone pls explain to me, how it actually works.

Are there 2 channels (2 postive + 2 negative) for 1 speaker?

or is it just like a regular 3way speaker, with different sized woofer cones + a tweeter? In this case, it would only need 1 channel, (1 postive + 1 negative) for the speaker.

I need to clarify this, as if I replace it with a aftermarket 6x9, (if the 1st case is true) then I will be losing 1 channel from the system, so converting the system from an 8 speaker system to a 6 speaker system.

Do I lose anything from a sound quality perspective? This will also govern what kind of amp I choose, should I choose not to replace the factory speakers (4 channel amp or 2x4 channel amp) or 6 channel amp etc.

First yes its actually two speakers in one and two channel (I.e. 4 wires 2 positive 2 negative)

And second don't keep your standard speakers with an aftermarket headunit and amp change the lot:- this explains why:- Why standard rear speakers don't work with aftermarket headunits!
