Would these be an improvement on my 1996 Saturn SL1 OEM speakers?

~100 dollars. should i just wait until i have some more money saved up? I would be using these with a kicker s12l7, so i don't need anything with bass. Does anyone have a suggestion for a ~100, or if i save up, whats a good bang for your buck speaker?
Thanks

Good Bang for your back speaker? hmmm what about saving money and removing them...If they are in your rear deck your sub will vent through...Use your money and if you like Kicker....get a set of Kickers best componets for your front...and have them properly placed...for proper sound quality like in the kick panel....

You could save up for a nice 6.5 comp set amped up front, which would be really nice and would be better

OR

If you dont want to wait or save up, Infinity 6.5 coaxials are pretty cheap online and sound pretty good!!

Signed up for the forum just to give you a heads-up about these speakers, I have them right now:

a) You can get them a lot cheaper then 100 bucks. Here is an example http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_3574_Kicker+DS60.html

b) They are better than stock speakers, and they aren't awful, but they need a LOT of EQ help to sound good. The tweeters are very peaky in the upper mids - I had to EQ the crap put of them to get them to sound decent, then once I did, I could turn them up and the mid-bass would fill in a bit. If your stock stereo doesn't have a lot of adjustments, you might not be able to get these to sound good.

I'd keep looking. For a few bucks more than the Sonic price on the DS60, you could go Infinity, JBL or Polk and possibly get a better sound (listen at a shop, if you can), or if you want to drop around 100 on coax speakers, you could do even better - like a CDT or Boston or something like that - shop around.

I am currently looking for shallow-mount speakers to replace my DS60's - If I do, I'd just about be willing to send you my kickers for the cost of shipping so you can check them out for yourself - I just can't decide what to get....

Hope that helps a little.
