I own a 92 Mazda Navajo(nevergo) and i plane to replace the factory speakers. I was wondering what the best 6x8" speakers are?

They will be powered by a Kenwood KAC-X541 amp.

I would rather use the stock size.

x2. It doesnt have to be 6.5s, it can be 5.25s too. I have the xenon 5.25s up front, and they whip my old infinitys I had in every aspect. Oval speakers just cant produce sound as well as round ones.

What about MB Quart's 6"x8" 2-way components (http://www.mbquart.com/2003/en_US/products/prod_detail.asp?isArchive=&cat=auto&series=reference%20series&strt=1&model=RCE+268)? do you think there any good?

I'm willing to spend up to $200 a pair.

Like i stated before you should really consider a round speaker, but just get some adapters for a few bucs to fit them in. It will sound so much better if you do. My comps came with the 5*7 adapter, which made it a little easier on me, but they arent expensive at all. But if you really want to go with 5*7s, then the quarts will do just fine, but the tweeter can be on the harsh side just to let you know.

if you can find a good deal on 5-1/2 or 6-1/2 on crutchfield they will give you the brackets for free.

on a side note would you guys reccomend 6-1/2s over a 6x9.

6*9s will do just fine for rear fill, so it wouldnt really matter imo, but ide rather have a good 5.25 or 6.5. 6*9s get the job done though, but they no longer exist in my car. After seeing how bad my 5.25s killed my 5*7s, and 6*9s, I have never switched back to oval speakers. Better quality sound out of round ones, and over all performance imo.

Theirs no best, its all about what you like. Go to a few sound rooms, and listen to some comps, and see which one you like.
