View Full Version : Memphis, Crystal or Alpine 4x6s?

Unfortunately for me, the only full range speakers in my car from the factory are 4x6" speakers which leaves me with limited options for quality speakers. Also, the max depth for the speakers is 1 5/8" so they have to be pretty shallow as well. Originally I was planning on going with Alpine or Memphis 4x6s (probably memphis), but I've seen the name Crystal being thrown around alot in the speaker forum so I figured I'd see if they make a 4x6". Apparently they do, and they are less expensive than either the Memphis or Alpines. Here are the 4 speakers I'm considering:

Memphis Power Reference Series (http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=PRC46)

Memphis MClass Series (http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=MC46)

Alpine SPS Series (http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=SPS46C2)

Crystal Mobile Sound CXE Series (http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-bin/icastore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=CXE464)

What do you all think would be best? SQ is very important to me, but retaining the (fairly) stock appearance of the interior is also important, so I won't be modding the door panels to fit bigger speakers or components. These will also be powered by an external amp which I will buy when I buy the speakers.

why dont you get a 4: component with x overs and put the tweeters next to the mid on a bracket, that will give you the best sound

because in my car, that will not work without modifying the door panels in some way, which I am not going to do
