hey guys i've been wanting to switch out my stock speakers on my Honda civic for some new fancy ones and i need help choosing between brands and specifications i have a basic knowledge of speakers but i need some above average advice; im looking at the Alpine Type-R 6.5 coaxial speakers since i dont have money right now to get some components and an amp. So my question is what would you guys suggest IF there is a better buy than these alpine speakers while remaining coaxial. Thanks

Link to the speakers im looking at:
Amazon.com: Alpine Type-R SPR-17C - Car speaker - 100 Watt - 2-way - coaxial - 6.5": Electronics (http://www.amazon.com/Alpine-Type-R-SPR-17C-speaker-coaxial/dp/B000NVBNW0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1277949523&sr=1-1)

why would you want to replace factory components with coaxial? why not just get the component set? it's not like you need an amp with a component but not a coaxial. a coaxial will just sound worse, regardless of amplification.

I would vote you get Type-S components over Type-R coaxials.
