Guys, i'm trying to figure out which speakers to install on my 2004 Explorer XLS, i'm about to buy a new Alpine head unit and not out to spend a bunch of money but just want some good sounding speakers. I dont want to cut any holes in my door panels for seperates so can anyone recommend any speakers for me? These speakers are 5.25" and i am going to install the in the front and rear door panels.
Thanks

price range $75.00 or less for each set.
I wasnt planning on putting an amp on them but could possibly get one, id like to stay under $150.00 for the amp.
Any ideas would be great guys.
Thanks

Two more days on these. You better jump if you're interested.http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-MB-QUART-DUA213-5-25-COMPONENT-CAR-AUDIO-SPEAKERS_W0QQitemZ270039042550QQihZ017QQcategoryZ3 2818QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

Oooorrr, these...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-MB-QUART-RCE-213-REFERENCE-5-25-COMPONENT-SPEAKERS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ38646QQihZ017Q QitemZ270041179262QQtcZphoto

Note: The factory speaker openings in your '04 Explorer are 5x7 openings. You will need an adapter plate, but you can make those eazy enough. I'm using B/A Pro 6 1/2" in mine with no mods. However, the important measurement is the mounting hole size. 5 1/4", and 6 1/2" sizes are used rather loosly.

Thanks for the reply, i think what actually fits are some 6x8's according to a sales rep at BestBuy, when i looked on Crutchfield it stated 5.25". Without doing any modifications what would fit in my stock locations correctly? Can anyone help me out?
thanks

Tempe's 6x8 to 6.5 Template (http://users.adelphia.net/~janeleslie03/Car_Audio_Resources/6x8_to_Six-and-a-Half_Template.doc)

Use that to install 6.5s in your doors. I did that with my Ranger. You will get more midbass out of the 6.5s and there are A LOT more component options out there for 6.5" cutouts...
