I have the BA6 system in my car, and I added the kicker sub recently. Now, based on my ears, I feel the 6x9's in the door are what is muddying the sound the most. Is replacing speakers in the door difficult? Do I have to take the entire door apart?

It's not too difficult to replace the speaker, but finding a 6x9 which
is not too deep for the location may be an issue. Taking the door
panel off isn't to tough either.


However, be aware that the impedence of the stock speakers is
2 ohms, while most aftermarket replacements will be 4ohms. This
will not cause problems, but there may not be enough power available
to drive the aftermarket speaker.

Then again, since it seems with the BA6 that the bass level is set too
high to the doors this may bring things in balance.

Alternative: you could use a round speaker and make a 6x9 adapter
plate instead of the 6x9, but the above still applies.

That explains why when I went onto Crutchfields site looking for speakers that fit, none of the 6x9's worked, but the round ones did. Also, didn't know about the ohm ratings. The BA6 system is a good stock system, but they sure did overkill the bass in the door.
