I'm on a budget for under $150 for a complete set of components.. I'd like to spend as little as possible, they don't have to be amazing just sound decent.

Truck details:
2004 Chevy Silverado regular cab
I have 6.5's in the front doors and I don't know what size near the headrest

Any help would be great, is Alphasonik a horrible brand for speakers?

Thanks for the options guys, what would be a good amp to power either one of these? Looking for something for someone on a tight college student budget :(

If you want a very midbass-strong set of comps that won't break the bank, check into the PG RSd65cs (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=17540).

And for a decent budget amp, check out the Blau VA2200 (http://sonicelectronix.com/item_6754_Blaupunkt+VA2200.html). Be conservative with the gains as it's 2x200wrms @ 4 ohms.

I've read some reviews around the net stating that they work well on 120+ clean Wrms.

Would be pretty decent off active with the following amp and crossover:

PT ICBM-7212 (http://sonicelectronix.com/item_5879_Performance+Teknique+ICBM-7212.html) about $53 shipped

Not unless you can afford almost 3" of mounting depth.
