advice on rear deck speakers

I have a pair of focal k-2 kevlars in the front. My focal access 6x9's (JUNK!)in the rear deck are blown. I'd like some ideas on what to put back in. Everything is being pushed by a jl audio 75x4.

Thanks!

I could only afford the PS 165s up front, but the PC690s in the rear deck have plenty enough SQ for my needs as a rear fill...

My vote is also for the PC690 speakers. They offer exceptional performance for the price and you get great range from them.

How do the hybrid audio speakers compare to the focal ones. I've never heard of hybrid before.

I just got a pair of Hybrids 6x9's that are going in the rear. I'm just waiting on my Dynamats to reduce vibration sounds. The Hybrid stuff comes very highly recommended by many people on this site. I did my doors and tweeters with Hybrids and they sound awesome

I have Focal KRX2's up front and they are awesome. You could go with an adapter and use Focal 165 KRC's in the rear. They have 3 xover settings for the tweeter and would probably sound as good as most 6x9's. I will go Focal in the rear at some point too but for now i have Polk 6X9's that serve well for rear fill. MS-8 helps keep it good.

That's my setup too. PS165s in the front PC690s in the back.

The access is Focal's bottom end speaker, so it's not fair to call them junk just because they couldn't keep up with your high end speakers up front.
