My car has 6 by 8's in the doors. What is my solution? Should I replace them with dedicated 6 by 8 sized speakers or go with a 6 1/2 component set if I can fit them in? The car is a 2002 Jaguar s type with a stock head unit. I"m not looking for any miracles, just something that does slightly better at higher volume levels.

Or you can buy my BNIB Kicker 6x8's for $50.

Those are decent too. It's just up to you. I'd go with these instead of the kicker 6X8's. IMO

I'd do a 6.5" component set with the 6x8 adapters before I would EVER install 6x8s again.

dang... I just called crutchfield to ask about how much mounting depth I have and I only have a "hair over 2""! Dang it! I can't fit squat back there!

I ended up ordering 2 sets of 6 1/2" rockford fosgate punch component sets for $90 a piece. They come with the adapters too. We'll see how they sound but I bet it's a million times better than my crappy stockers!
