Ok I have a 95 240 sx with 6.5's in the front and rear and tweeters mounted on the pillars, I dont know the size of those.. anyways should I get coaxial, 2-way, 3-way or what? do I need 2/3 ways for rear and front? just give me an idea of what would be best in this situation.

I also have two amps a crossover and a capacitor in my garage im going to install eventually.. but the car is new and still needs a head unit

sorry they are 6 3/4 apparently

Since you have factory component locations going with coaxials would be a waste of time. I'd start out with two-ways in the factory locations, see how they image...if your stage height/width/depth is horribly off, may be time to look into other mounting solutions.

So two way is the 6.5" woofer with a tweeter attached to it correct? but I already have tweeters above in my pillars, its ok to have both? and should I get two ways in the front AND back? also what kind of frequency response should I be looking for.. I noticed some are like 40hz and some 20hz at the low end. thanks for response

He means 2 way comps.

FR figures are overrated and not worth basing your decision on...look for a couple sets in your price range, and start reading reviews about them.

What would be the advantages/disadvantages between a coaxial and a mid in the rear? and are component speakers hard to setup? im not sure if the aftermarket tweeters would fit in my stock location as it is INSIDE the pillar so the dome grill part wouldnt fit.

tweeters are the best kind of speaker

Ignoring the jackass.. Do mids reproduce enough higher end frequency so that people in the backseat will hear decent tunes? do stock systems usually come with coaxials? Basically I just want a solid upgrade on my stock system and i want it to look stock also. thanks for your time

if you are going to have people listening in the back seat, then go with coaxials in the back.
