Partial speakre upgrade

Today got my BA up front replaced with the Hertz HSK165's. Already have the Pheonix Gold Sub/6ch amp package. Now i am debating about doing the rear speakers. The place i got them said i would get better sound from putting rounds back there instead of the 6x9's. Can anyone comment on that?

Round vs oval is a debate that will never end. I don't think it's a big deal anymore. I put Focal 6x9s in the rear, after I originally bought 5.25s for the rear.

Totally with JeepGuy on this one. I've heard MANY different speakers at work and the whole round versus oval thing isn't a huge deal. A 6x9" does tend to give you better response for the rear and Focal is a great choice.

Focal speakers are the shit. Mine sound great. As far as round versus oval goes I don't think it is a big deal. Good luck man!!!

OK, so let me get a little more specific then. For those that did upgrade the rear speakers and went with Hertz HE speakers, which ones did u put in the rear?

thanks for the input!!
