Hey everyone, I am looking to replace the factory speakers in my four door truck since all but one have blown. I was curious if it would benefit me much to purchase 3 way speakers over 2 way? I am not planning on putting an amp to them. I am just trying to keep this as cheap as possible. What do you all think?
Thanks

go with a quality 2 way...most 3 ways only add more hiss and sizzle to your system...What kinda vehicle ?

It is an 05 silverado crew cab. I need 2 sets of 6.5's, and they will be hooked up to a kenwood excelon series so roughly only 22 rms to each.

Definitely 2 way with 22w

Ok thanks. How much improvement would I see from putting a four channel amp in running around 50w rms to each speaker?

you would see a large improvement from putting them on an amp and an even larger improvement if you decide to deaden your doors. Here is a link talking about how to sound deaden your doors and what exactly it entails http://www.caraudio.com/forums/speakers/95925-proper-door-sound-deadening-you.html.

Also being as it is a trunk you could save money and maybe do a component set and just take out the rear speakers. putting in a component set does require a little bit more work though.

also you could of probably answered most of your questions by searching the forums or reading the sticky

Stick with the Coaxial set first, then if your not happy with that, consider amping..

Consider this..
