Ok, dont even start about components, i KNOW they are better, and i WILL be getting them eventually, but i just found out that i blew 1 or 2 of my stocks, so i need a fairly cheap fix, and ill be replacing all 4 speakers.

According to crutchfield my stock speakers are 6 X 8.

I want them to be good speakers because i will end up leaving the back set in for rear fill when i do decide to upgrade the front. I will also need them to be able to take ~ 200 watts because of the 4-channel im getting.

Anyway, please give me some suggestions.:cool:

Get a pair of the new Pioneer Premier D-Series speakers. They're the best for the money out there without spending gobs of money:

You can find them for around $80-90 on the usual speaker sites and eBay.

those pioneers do look nice, im curious how they would do on double their RMS though...

also will a good 2-way be ok or should i be looking at 3 or 4 ways?

And is 6 X 8 my only option?

They should do fine as long as the power is clean.

2 ways would probably be the way to go, but it'll come down to personal preference.

You might be able to go with 6.5's by making an mdf adapter, granted you have the clearance in your door.

arc's coaxes sound decent...i am running a 4" off 75wrms and then do pretty well

dont think they have a 6x8 though, but you could make an adapter and use the 6.5's

The subs seem to be a big hit, but I know nothing about their coaxs.

REv's :)

ive seen these mentioned as well. How do they compare against focal/hertz. Im willing to pay the extra cash if its worth it in the long run, but then again i know ill be taking out the fronts eventually and adding components so maybe i should stick with something a little more basic.

Anyway, link? lol

I don't think you'll notice a large enough difference in coaxials between REV and focal/hertz to make those two worth it. I would try ebay *GASP* yea I said it.. for the revs.

is this what your referring to? I cant seem to find any 6 X 8s, im curious how hard it would be to have someone make some baffles for me and what i would have to do for that?

Baffles shouldn't be too terribly bad. And those would be good

nice, not sure why that didnt come up in my search, lol. Now do you think doing baffles and having 6.5s would sound better then the 6X8s? Ive heard mention that circle speakers are better at reproducing sound then ovals? Is the extra effort worth it?

If its a temp setup just throw in the 6x8's if you want it be permananet get the 6.5 comp set.

you think the comps will be good to stick with? I might go ahead and pick up a set of comps and just do it right the first time for the fronts, what about for rear fill? Baffle it to 6.5 or just do the 6 X 8s? Thanks.

Just worry about the front for now. Don't even mess with rear fill until you have your front stage set up and imaged properly. If the fronts aren't enough for you after a few weeks, then throw in some coaxs powered off the HU.

I meant disconnect them/remove them altogether and put your focus on the front stage. ;)

Try it without first. The results may surprise you.

Forget the Pioneer REV or the old Premier D-Series (if they're yellow and made of Kevlar forget them). Their overpriced and discontinued. You can find the newer ones (which are a lot better) most places for the same price.

If you want components, you'll be looking for these:

If you want coaxials (in oval), look for these:

Otherwise buy a speaker adapter and get these:

Those are the D-series we've been talking about (and agreeing with you about since you recommended them first in post #3); and since they are currently cheaper and more readily available than the old yellow cone REVs, they would be the logical choice.

Weaksauce, imo. The clarity that JBL speakers offer is very good, but the lower-end just seems lacking. They don't seem to have the same low-frequency extension as the new D's (or even the old REVs) have to me.
