I have a 2003 Hummer H2 that I'm upgrading and can't seem to figure out what speakers to install. I want to keep same configuration in the front as the original Bose but would like to put the same thing in the second row but adding tweeters. I have a JVC KW-NT3HDT head unit - Focal Solid 4 amp for Speakers and a Focal Solid 1 amp for sub. I purchased a Pioneer TS-SWX310 12" as my sub. Any suggestions for the speakers would be great.

Thanks Ken

Budget Pick

JBL MS-52C (MS52C) 5-1/4" 2-Way MS Component Car Speakers System (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_45047_JBL-MS-52C.html)
With a little higher of a budget

TBH, I would consider doing a great set of comps up front and either not replacing the rears or just getting a set of coaxials for rear fill and keeping them tuned for low volume for the rear passengers only.

No real budget just don't want to go to overboard. I like listening to my music just not making everyone else listen to me coming up the street.

No problem man. Nothing I recommended is meant to be heard from blocks away, but it probably could if you ever chose to do so.

What do you think of Phoenix Gold? I stopped at a local custom installers shop and he seems to like them.

Their amps, especially the older ones, are very well-designed. Their speakers, on the other hand, are on the upper end of the budget offerings. Would honestly probably go with the Pioneers I linked you to before I went with some PGs.
