Alright, so I want to work on making my stereo system in my mustang sound better. I have an older, pretty nice, pioneer head unit (DEH 535) in from the previous owner which isn't bad but I would love to have an aux-in plug to play music through my speakers with my phone, ipod, zune, etc...

But I think more importantly, I would really like new door speakers and possibly rear speakers. I love to have my music really loud but hate when it starts to crackle. Mostly when I have the windows down and so I need to turn it up to be able to hear it better and then it gets fuzzy...

I'm curious as to what you guys think would work best in my car. Specific speakers, brands, and other things would be much appreciated. Also as to what would fit exactly and the best I can get with a pretty tight budget.
Thanks guys,
Michael

well i just looked it up as to wat sizes your speakers are and they are 6x8s all the way around. wat is your budget...are you tryin to get a amp for the speakers as well or just new speakers? getting a amp will make them louder. but you dont want an amp on stock speakers...if your just wanting speakers and are ona tight budget...try to find some used on around here in the classifieds section or off ebay.....just stay away from Sony and most Pioneers.

Well thank you very much.
I believe there are 4 speakers total, one in each door, and two in the rear.

I am not sure what I want or need yet. I'm quite uneducated on how speakers work and what not...

I am hoping to spend under $200 and even as little as possible since I'm in high school and can't afford a lot. I dont care all that much about bass or ever having subs but would love to be able to play my music loud with the windows down.
Thanks.

I'd get some 6.5" adapters, there are a lot more options and a round speaker wont distort sound at all. and upgrading from stock anything will be a huge improvement. and www.sonicelectronix.com is a good place to order stuff

They are Cobra R Wheels. just got them a couple weeks ago off craigslist. I really like them, and the fact that the back ones are pretty dang wide.

those kickers will fir your wants well and the adapter mentioned above is nothing more than a piece of plastic or MDF that allows you to use a 6.5" round speaekr in the place of your 6x8...heres a link to wat im talkin about.:

so you would need 2 sets of those and i would go with these speakers:

Thanks. Now that's the kind of reply i wanted :) haha with some specifics.
Thanks a bunch. So I'm liking the prices of these but am still uncertain about the specifics and what does what?
What are tweeters? I am thinking they are little additional speakers that you mount somewhere else? How would this be possible in my car? Would I have to do a custom job to make it work?
If so, I'm thinking about not using them at all?
Thoughts? Critique?
I'm pretty new to this stuff so idk...
