Im needing front 6.5 and rear 5.25 for a 03 quad cab dodge ram. Im thinking components up front and midbass for the rear. The problem is I dont know what to get. Im looking under 250 for the components and I will get an amp to run everything (that can be suggested also). Everything is going and Im starting fresh. Thanks for the help

So you need
6.5" components for the fronstage,
5.25" midbass drivers for the reastage,
And an amplifier to push all 4?

What music do you like? What is your total budget? If you have limits you'll spend on an item, like 250$ for the components alone, 150$ for the midbass/coaxial drivers, and 200$ for the amp, that would be very helpful.

Ohh ya, are you afraid to order offline?

Im actually looking to order offline. 200-250 for the components. Maybe the ascendant audio midranges (other suggestions would be nice) and roughly 200 for an amp to run em on.

and the amp i would like to run all 4 but maybe 2-2 channels would be ok for the right price

sorry about the constant single line posts but im trying to be specfic here... I dont want real harsh tweeters, just a nice balance. Hopefully when i get my taxes back im looking to do 2 subs under the rear seat with 800-1000 rms

Still confused, are you looking for the componenets PLUS the midbass drivers? An amp to drive them for 200$ isn't that hard to fine, of course it won't be top of the line.

Personally I would not get new 5.25" speakers for the rear but instead spend a little more on your front component set. If you could find a pair of say used Rainbow Germaniums for 350-375 that would sound far better then a $250 components + rear coaxles setup. (or heck even a pair of SLC 265's + $100 into Raammat or second skin) Also, you can get a 2 ch amp (instead of 4) which should save you some bones. If you have passengers then keep the stock speakers in the back and just run them off of head unit power. Just my 2 cents.
