What would be louder, 4 6x9 (B-69)or the B-530 setup if they were powered at max rms?

im not sure bro, i got 3 sets of B-70's on my tower its loud 6x9's are loud too, go listen to some at a dealer. 6x9's tend to distort more than a round speaker...

I've got 4 MB Quart DTC 6x9s (same speakers as B-69) in a custom aluminum box on my tower and they sound really good on the platform while you're getting ready to ride, but they aren't very loud at the end of the rope.

How much power do you have driving the speakers? What amp etc...

I truly don't think you'll find a car speaker that you can hear nice and clear at 75 feet with the engine and water noise. Try the pro-audio stuff like some of the guys on this site have developed if you want true volume and clarity while riding. If your cool with listening while your getting ready and hearing it not as clear at 75, that's totally cool too and both those will work well. I'd go with the 530's between those two sets. is a good source for the pro-audio stuff, though.

I'm running a rockford fosgate 700x
RMS Power at 2 Ohms 175 W x 4 or
RMS Power at 4 Ohms 87.5 W x 4

I'm running mine at 4 ohms, I don't think the speaker I have could handle any more.

I had this same problem too when I was looking for tower speakers. I listened to the 6 X 6.5" setup in a box and was not real impressed. As soon as I heard the 6 X 6X9 box I was sold. I'm planning to run a higher powered 6X9 component set that sounds much better than regular coaxials with a 600X4 phoenix gold amp.

Look into Fluid concept speakers, they are unbeleivably crisp and loud sounding.

dont let there size fool you....

I agree with Scott. I've never heard any tower speaker setup that sounded anything CLOSE to the NVS 808 setup. It was four 8's, and two horns, driven by an 800 watt amp. I think it's about 1600 bucks for the speakers. It absolutely on any of the traditional car audio stuff I've heard.*

It borders on too loud, and it's crisp.

*Note: I have not ridden behind every single tower speaker setup in the world. Just some of the common stuff.
