We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. While there are now more ways to store and access music than ever, a song is only as good as the speakers it comes out of. The 6.5-inch format is among the most common sizes found in cars, and at high power, it resists distortion more than smaller or oval-shaped cones. We've ranked some of the best aftermarket upgrade options, as well as some great replacements for blown factory units. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best 6.5 inch car speaker on Amazon.
