I am looking to get my Dad some new speakers for his car for Father's Day.
He has a 1999 Silverado Extended Cab.
There are 6.5" speakers in the front and 4"x6" speakers in the back.
Since he will be running the speakers off head unit power i decided to stick with coaxials.
I'm just looking for some suggestions on which coaxials would run decent with only the head unit's power.

Budget: under $300 for all 4 speakers

Pioneer is always a good hi end \ low end budget deal.

id also tell ur dad to upgrade the HU, it'll make a difference

a single set of front speakers with a small amp will sound 50000x better than 2 sets of speakers ran off the headunit

I have brought this up to my dad already but he doesnt want a sub nor an amp. So that ditches the sub and amp idea along with the components. His left rear speakers is also blown so thats why i will be replacing the back two speakers.

I agree with you 100%. I would do the same if it was my vechicle, but its not.
