Im about to upgrade my whole system. Getting another sundown sa15, amp, box, and getting new door speakers. I dont want ridiculously expensive door speakers but i do want some really nice ones that sound very loud and clear. So do you guys think the type rs are a good pick for $270? Should i just get the 2 front speakers? Are there any speakers that are comparable to the type rs for the price?

no look into some hybrid audio speakers the type r s are to expensive for the performance.

Never heard them in person but to me 270 seems really expensive shop around and start here Check this out on AMZN:
Alpine SPR-69C Hi-End 6 x 9 Coaxial 2-Way Speakers
Hybrid Audio Mirus 6x9 coaxials are available for under $200 online. These are supposed to be very good coaxial speakers. If you want a step up consider Hybrid Audio Imagine, the 6x9 version. It's a convertible speaker, so you can use it as a coaxial or a component with a separate tweeter. I believe there is also a 6x9 version in Massive Audio's CK series. The CK series are supposed to have good midbass and power handling.

Alright ill look at those hybrids. But what's the difference between coaxial and components? How do you know which one you want?

I was saying $270 for all 4 type rs. But i really like those hybrid audio speakers haha. You think 2 of the imagines would sound better than all 4 typers?
Component speakers allow you to install tweeter in a separate location from the woofer. This is usually pretty easy if your car has factory locations for tweeters. Hybrid Audio Imagine are more of SQ speaker. These are convertible between coaxial and component. Mirus is coaxial only and shares design with Imagine. Imagines have been compared to JL Audio C5. The 6.5 version can get somewhat loud, but not much beyond that. If getting loud is the goal, 4 speakers may be better. The 6x9 version of Imagine has 7mm xmax spec, so I assume the they can put some serious midbass as well. I believe the Massive Audio CK69III or CK69X are also convertible.
