What are the most powerful 5x7 / 6x8 speakers that are on the market right now?
And what amp would efficiently power these?
I'm putting in 2 15" Alpine Type Rs into my 98 Expedition and don't want to stick with my JBL OEMS! Please help me!! :)

I have mine running on 104 rms and they rail they are actually a 5.25 and a 1 inch tweet in a 5x7 / 6x8 plate. Alot of times you can mount a 5.25 or 6.5 component in the same spot. you putting this in a ford by chance? if so usually you can cut 1 side of the hole and mount a 6.5" they really work better than an oval anyway.

Yeah these are going into a Ford Expedition, and what amp do you use for these?

im using a jbl gt75.4 mark II they dont make it anymore. but an XXV Juno is about 260$ and performs better. any amp that puts out a true 85 wrms or more will make them really sing good they are an amazing speaker.
