im replacing the speakers in the back of my dodge ram 1500 2005 and some 6.5's can fit in there and i can fabricate a hole for the tweeter for a component system and i have an amp for them as well... i just want to know what will be the loudest and sound the best for $<150

Why are you investing so much in rear fill in a truck? What do you have up front?

Someone once told me that I shouldn't worry to much about loud speakers in the rear of my car, maybe a few mid bass and thats it. If you're at a concert you don't want to hear it behind you but in front of you.

yeah i hear you....i just dont have any kind of mid bass... i have kenwood 110 rms 5 ways up front that im about to put on an amp as well as two 6x9's and 2 super tweeters and an 8 inch kicker cvt sub that i have in my roof... i also have 3 alpine type r's wired to 1 ohm on a rockford fosgate t1000.1bd so anything bass around 50-80 hz i hear nothing and i love that dirty skrillex. i thought that if i got 2 good components it would help out with the higher HZ bass problem

these on crossovers are some of the best midbass speakers i have ever heard huge 70 ounce magnets and on an amp hit all the midbass you will ever want

then put some cheaper coax 6.5's in the rear

well idk for one if that would fit in my 6x9 spot? ill have to check the depth and i have 2 infiniti kappa series in the back but they are 2 ohm and idk i just dont really hear them... maybe its cuz im mixing 2 ohm with 4 ohm kenwoods lol.... and ive never heard of cadence.... any other references?

the other midbass monster i would throw in the front :)instead of the kenwoods also 2 ohm so will mix nice with the infinities

well i have to have a 6x9 in the front. not a 6.5 unless the 6.5's fit and are better than a 6x9???... but i think i would be better off just going with 4 ohm considering im going to run the 2 front 6x9's with the 2 6x9's that i have in the box in my roof bridged on two channels and have 2 super tweeters on the other two channels and have my sub on the sub channel on a rockford fosgate 5 channel. i would include a pic but idk how to add one??

I personally like 6.5s better and you can buy adapter played for 10 dollars that have the hole for the tweeter and 6.5 mid to fit in the 6x9 opening

Wait just a cotton pickin minute

Get rid of all of that junk up front. You've got way too much going on.

How did you get three type Rs to 1 ohm?

Why don't u hear anything from 50 to 80 hz? you know you can let your subs play up higher right?

Last, but certainly not least....why is there a sub in your roof?

Lol that's what I was thinking just didn't want to explain it through my phone. Less is more with audio. Get rid of it all. Get a quality 6.5 up front and some nice 6.5 coax or midbass in rear

Morel Maximo have very good reviews. This would be my top pick. Supposedly, they have good sensitivity, clean mid-range and strong bass. The tweeter is a little bright, but that was associated with the component versions. In a coaxial speaker, the tweeter is way off axis and far, so it should not sound bright IMHO.

Recently heard a pair of the Golden Ear Aon bookshelf speakers...I think they sell right at 999. It is amazing how much speaker you can get for that kind of money these days. The new Epos are pretty nice for the as well.
