Hey guys, I wanted to replace my toyota corolla speakers, I've read a little about it. Front doors are 6x5 and rear doors 6x9. Searching and reading some reviews I decided to get components. I don't know if I'll need a bass. My head unit is an AVH8400BT. I have 500$ for this... I'm not expecting my car to be in a competition I just want it to sound loud and clear. Another problem is that I don't know what amp I will need to power up the babies I'll be hooking up my doors.
So far I've looked up on Amazon and I don't know if this speakers are good.
Polk Audio DB6501 6.5-Inch 2-Way Component System (Pair, silver)
JBL P963 6x9" Three-Way Power Series Speakers
JBL P662 6-1/2" Two-Way Power Series Speakers
Sorry about no links, forum wouldn't let me.

Precision Power PPI P900.5 (p9005) 5-Channel Phantom Car Amplifier (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_38339_Precision-Power-PPI-P900.5.html) would be your go to amp keeps gains really low and your stock speakers will surprise you. You should sound deaden and seal your doors or else its not really worth it to get new speakers because mid range and mid bass will be lacking even when amped. If you still want to upgrade, your front speakers are more important than your rear since its right next to you. you might want to add a small 8 or 10 inch sub also for a fuller sound. Just grab one of those 60$ kickers from amazon and a sealed box with an amplifier wiring kit, and an extra pair of 17 foot RCAs for sub input and you should be set.

should be well under your budget, save that extra money to get a decent pair of components. Those polks are on the brighter side of the sound spectrum if you like the sssss sound in your trebles.
