so my current door speaker situation is stock for all I know. in the process of building a sub box for a 10" gcon and in the searching stage of new door speakers front and rear. I originally thought about a component set up front n regular coax in the rear but then came across the crescendo 6.5 pro audio speakers/midrange....curious peoples opinions on them? should I run 4(1 ea dr) or stick to the original plan comp up front n coax in back?

I've been looking at 6.5's comps and coaxials for the wife's minivan. I personally wouldn't use PA in a car. Maybe it's just me but... The Audiobahn Murdered Out series is garbage. I think one of the better more affordable comps and coaxials is the Alpine Type R's. Also Polk db's, Infinity Kappa's and some JBL's. You can also talk to some vendor's on here about CDT's. I know mylows10 is an autorized dealer and I've heard good things about them. What's your budget?

up to you completely. I can't offer advice on the above speakers, what I can tell you is from personal experience front components make a big difference. The back being coax is just fine.

i would say about 75-100 bucks.... i had cadence comps in my last ride running off just my hu and was impressed for the money i spent on them which was only 50 bucks....never got to hook them up to an amp. been eyeing the soundstream stuff since its in my price range.

if you decide on a pro speaker you need a pro tweet to complete the package, crescendo is not that loud, i would suggest PRV audio if you are going pro audio. they have PRV in parts express

i had some soundstream coax's in my car for about a week. they made my ears want to bleed and not in a good way... i switched over to the polk db & dxi's (6.5's) and i couldnt be happier. think you can find the db's online for about 70 shipped. I did compare them to others in the price range (alpine s, infinity, rockford ect..) liked the polks the best. put 50-60 watts on them and they sound great imo. and +1 on putting components in the front and coax in the rear.

you can do what you want but if i was in the position of spending possibly $200 id just invest it in the fronts. if you keep the rear just run them off of head unit power.

what i would be getting is

speakers
Image Dynamics CTX-65 (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_22335_Image-Dynamics-CTX-65.html)

amp
Precision Power PPI S420.2 (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_23657_Precision-Power-PPI-S420.2.html)
