Im new to the world of frontstage. ive never needed to upgrade the fronts but now with 4 18"s i cant really hear..well anything. im not really concerned with sq as much as i am being able to hear the words. i understand that comps would sound better than coaxials but i would like to just hear whats going on. i have a 2000 explorer with stock 5x7's. suggestions would be helpful or any tips too. thanks

hmmm...

Maybe the Infinity 680.7cs (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=15373)
RF T1682S (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=14415)

Do you have an amp picked out yet?

is there a difference in output in coaxial vs component?

Components will generally give you much better imaging since you can position the mids and tweeters separately.

If you want some good coaxes, check out the Pioneer REVs (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=14551).

Might also look at the RF Power Series. They get pretty **** loud and still sound good.

You don't mention an amp for the front speakers. I hope you don't think the headunit can supply enough power (typically 22w rms) to keep up with 4 18" subs?
