Why 8ohms speakers???^^^^
what is your price range??
what size are you looking for ???
are you looking for Mids or tweeters or both???????
so i would guess your going active or are you just thinking that just because your stock speakers are 8 ohms that you'll need 8 ohms as well???
you can use 4-6-8 ohms
when you are looking into home drivers you'l need to look into the Qes, Qts, Fs, depth as well, there are a lot of factors to look at.
Madisound, partsexpress & solen, will have what you need.
search or google for info on reviews before you buy.

Why 8 ohm? Stockers are 4 ohm. If you have the mach system I suggest you get a set of comps and replace the 6x8s with a 6.5" round and replace the tweet in the pod with the aftermarket tweet. Replacing the stock 6x8s with an aftermarket 6x8 coax isn't gonna gain you much. A 8 ohm driver will return even less. Give us a better idea of what you are trying to accomplish.

i was told that the stock speakers in the mach system are 8ohms and i dont want to rewire everything right now so i just wanted to replace them. i found some stock speakers on ebay that i am just going to replace them with.
when i upgrade i will not be using 6x8's lol and will rewire the whole car. thanks for the help guys.

For the record, they're 4 ohm. I've had a '99 cobra and a '03 cobra both with the mach system. '08 also 4ohm, except for the 8' woofers in the front doors 1.5 ohm dvc. weird.
