I have Pioner 6x9s in the back and they're okay... nothing special without an amp. The rear deck speakers are round 6.5" in a 6x9 plate though, but 6x9's will bolt in fine.

6x9 speakers also distort easier because the cone isnt as rigid as the same speaker in a 6.5" size.

Your not going to find any speakers with more bass than stock, all stock speakers have to offer is bass. If you want to almost match the bass and significantly increase the sound quality your going to have to amp the speakers. My JL VR 6x9s are VERY bassy.

when i installed the 6x9s in my 94, all i had to do was angle them a bit to fit. had to drill holes, but it was pretty easy.

in component speakers, crossovers deliver the highs to the tweeters and the lows to the woofer, creating a very precise sound.

A crossover on a amp set to either low or high pass will either cut out the highs or the lows. You would use the low pass filter for a sub, and a high pass filter if you have a sub and don't need your speakers playing anything below 80hz. I'm not sure what you mean by worth it? Your amp has one, or at least it should. Or if you mean a crossover for a woofer and a tweeter (Speaker), yes a crossover is always worth it. Even if the speaker is a coaxial and has a little crossover built in that is better than no crossover. Without it the woofer will be trying to reproduce the the highs, which it doesn't do very well with out distortion, and the tweeter will be trying to play bass which will cause distortion as well. Crossovers make a huge difference in sound, especially at loud volumes. They allow each driver to play at its optimal frequency range, which is necessary if you want any kind of quality.

What's even better is having a deck with a built in crossover... and time correction.

You have to have a crossover for tweeters because if a tweeter trys to play anything much below 1000 Hz, it will shred itself. Theyre just not capable of playing low frequencies.

Variable crossovers are definitely worth it if youre wanting to be able to do as much tuning as possible to get the best sound possible. However if youre just wanting to "plug and play" and have decent sound while you drive around, then they probably are not worth it.

6x9's are a great speaker if you buy a quality product. Generally a round cone is more rigid than an oval one but technology is such today that any quality manufacturer can make an oval cone plenty rigid so as it wont distort. The added benefit is that you have much more cone area which means better low end response.

If you dont want a sub I suggest getting a good set of aftermarket 6x9's, and front speakers as well, and a good stout 4 channel amp - something in the 75-100x4 watt range. This wont have as much output as a sub but it will have a ton more than what youve got now.
