5 1/4" or 6 1/2" up front in OEM locations

General Car Audio Discussion - DIYMA Car Audio Forum - www.diymobileaudio.com
Hey folks,

I'm trying to decide which mids to use up front in stock door locations. The vehicle is a 2012 VW Passat which has tweeters in the dash and mids in the forward bottom corner of the door (pretty standard). The speakers in question are a set of JBL 560GTI and 660GTI components.

Although I had design and acquired the equipment around a 3 way active (PXA H800) front plus sub system, the addition of a baby to the family means I need 2 way front and rears.

Since I will use both sets, one for front and one for rears, which should I use for the front location? The 5's will give me better off axis response and I can also angle them upwards slightly which is not feasible with the 6's. The 6's will provide more mid bass impact which is very important to me. Will I lose out on midbass impact if I place the 6's in the rear or will that be negligible?

I'd appreciate your feedback especially if you've experienced this dilemma.

Thanks
