Going from 6x9 to 6.5, help!

Well, Crutchfiled told me my 93 accord lx had 6.5 in the rears, but today when i got my 2 pairs of 6.5 and I took a look at my rears, they weren't 6.5, but 6x9. I was wondering what kind of difference would i notice if i was to put the 6.5 in place of the 6x9? Also my new 2 pairs of 6.5 are components, so i can put the tweeter anywhere i want and that might work out better, but I don't to put them in and hate them, then end up not being able to return them cause they're opened.

Well, 6x9s suck, so the difference you will see will be better sound. As far as mounting the tweeter anywhere, I would advise you to keep it close to your 6.5 inch driver. Keeping the midbass and tweeter close together helps with your staging and imaging. If you car is a coupe, think about adding an amp and amping your front speakers. Rear fill isn't something needed in a coupe, so like I said, possibly consider running an amp to your fronts and dropping the rear altogether.
