the 6" zil bel sounds way better than the 9. it seems a shame to block the ride bell though. If you can sneak in the zil bel between your hihats and first tom, you can do some cool double-ride stuff.
to each their own though, I won't be offended if you don't take that advice.
That's exactly where I keep my 6" Z Bel. I also have a 9" and it's actually to the right of the ride. I didn't want to lose the bell of the ride either. I use all 3 bells extensively in my playing. They are fun.
