I second the Infinity's, though they lack in bass, but do make it up with their crystal crisp highs for the price.

check out the JL VR690-CXi's or even the VR's depending on how much you want to spend. i just put four VR's in a custom fiberglass box on a tower in a boat. it is unreal, they should be even better in your car.

is it true that if you have 6x9 in the back, and subs, they will interfere with each other or somethin like that?

With components up front, you don't need rear fill ... if you think you do, or like the way it sounds, go ahead and put it back there. I always suggest not putting anything back there, but if you feel the need, a round speaker, such as a 2 way or dedicated midbass 6.5" would work.

i will have some good 6x9s in the mail in another day (infinity 693.5i's) i justwant some really good sound. is it still a good idea to get components or should i get 4x6'sthat will fit in my door? also, is it better to get those q form kickpanels for components or will they sound ok in my doors?

Kick panels are ideal, but your doors would work.

I think you would be much happier with the sound of components, especially over 4x6's.

if i get components, and put them in my doors will that require me to cut my doors at all?i havent looked under the door panels but i know my cavi takes 4x6's. also, if i do get comps and put them in kick panels i wont have anything playing in my doors right?

Check the mounting depth and see ... you may need to do a little bit of cutting since it would only be a 4x6" grille on the door (if it has one, I forget) ... I'm not sure if there is a stock grille there or not, I forget.

If you get comps and put them in kick panels, you will not have anything playing in your front doors ... usually better imaging, and no sound deadening :D

i dont recomend 6x9's due to the oval design of them causes them to distort much sooner than a round speaker
