View Full Version : Looking for speakers for 2001 Sunfire GT

Hey there guys, as you can tell I am completely new here.

I might as well list off what I want and plan on doing first off, because that will make the BS going away hopefully. I need:

Head Unit
2 4x6 speakers for the front
2 6x9 for the back (not necessary however if I need to cut them, I am the only driver, and I rarely have passengers. I would rather have better speakers in the front, than poor speakers all around. Alternatively, if I have to cut the front speakers for the back ones, I don't mind too much, I just want to make sure it is a balanced sound)
An amp? I really am not sure of what all I need from here on in.

I am looking to upgrade my total sound system as you can tell, but I am a complete noob at car audio, as I can be found out by my recent purchase of some Sony X-Plod (Hmm, I think they called them that for a reason. they ****.) By the way, I still hate myself for wasting money on those.

But anyways, my budget is around $500 - $650 or so, and I just want some ear-love for when I am driving on my many road trips as well as around town. I will be purchasing subwoofers later, however I would like to have some bass right now so some all around speakers would be very beneficial to my purchasing decision.

Oh, and I like sound quality more than loudness, please help a noob out :D

First thing u need to do is upgrade the stock hu to an aftermarked one with at least 2 pre-outs, then sound deaden the front doors... I would then upgrade the front door speakers to 6.5" because 4x6s really **** in this car. Check out my sig and you can see there is lots of work to do on this car for just decent sound. gl.

Your sunfire is the same setup as my cavalier. Here is my plan for the future.

HU Pioneer DEH-P6000UB
Front Pioneer REV components
Rear Pioneer REV coax
Sub Fi Q

Amps Cadence TXA

Do your research and that can all be had for right around your budget. Definately deaden your front doors tho.
