Alright guys, heres the deal. My girlfriend drives her dad's 2002 Toyota Camry SE. She just got the car back from her sister, who was driving it for a few days. Now, I don't know whether it just happened or whos fault it is (but that doesn't really matter), the left door speaker is not putting out any sound at all and the right door speaker is rattling and buzzing (although it sounds okay most of the time). She doesn't want to get in trouble with her dad, so she wants to get new speakers for the doors. I don't want her to have to go to CC or BB and pay stupid prices and get ripped off. She doesn't need great speakers, she just doesn't want them to sound like ****. The car has the upgraded option of the JBL system if that matters at all. She is basically looking to spend the least amount of money on speakers that will at least sound as good as the stock ones. Any suggestions woudl be appreciated.

Naa, she can get some cheap Pioneers at BB for 50 bucks and call it a day.

Might need rewire to the factory HU..

You really think its best just for her to go into CC or BB and get the cheapest speakers?

She is just worried they are gonna sound like trash, but I mean they are gonna sound at the worst, the same as the stock speakers right?

Maybe i need to explain better... (thanks for all the help so far though)

She isn't lookign to get a "system" or upgrade anything

Its just that all of a sudden the 2 door speakers are not working or sounding wierd.

She doesn't want her dad to hear and not let her use his car anymore, so she is going to just get new speakers.

Thats what im trying to figure out. The car has the upgraded factory JBL system if that matters...


why not warranty work from toyota?

Is that really a possibility for her?

I almost forgot, Wal-Mart sells factory replacement speakers for like 10bucks, they will sound about the same as the old factorys.

question - you said upgraded JBL system?

fact is, they will prolly have some crazy freakin crossover and some tweeters in the Apillers or sail panels or somthin.

you might wanna actually find out what you are replacing before you go spending money.

i beg to differ, i have an 01 toyota avalon with the JBL package and those speakers sound **** good, i dont think wal mart $10 speakers will come anywhere close to the jbl system toyota uses. they sound awesome for a stock speaker set up IMO

every on eit seems is try to get u do buy a system....i once had an expensive system and can frackully tell u... buy a pioneer or kenwood coaxial for $50 from an audio shop, let them "reccommed it" in that way if it does not fit or u discover that its not the speakers that are faulty ythey will be happy to take it back as long as u are going to use there service to find and repair the fault


its afail safge option


i am sure ur g/friends dad would not really notice.......
