Alright.. so like the title says, these two I think is what I have it narrowed down too. I would appreciate some comments on this post actually as to recommendations. I don't really know a lot of people that are audiophiles. I just installed the Alpine KTP-445U (90 watts RMS) and some Pioneer TS-D1720C component speakers. I also am running a Pioneer HU DEH-P8400BH

Pioneer speakers - TS-D1720C - 6" Component Speaker Package | Pioneer Electronics USA (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/Speakers/D-Series/TS-D1720C)

Those handle 60 watts RMS and I am getting some popping when the base hits even with my HPF set on 63. So I want something that can handle a little more power I guess, no more tweeter popping or having a hiss in the speakers waiting for the next track to play.

So I have it narrowed down to 2... (I think :banghead: )

MB Quart QS216 - Amazon.com: QS216 - MB Quart 6.5" 2-Way Q-Series Component Speakers: Car Electronics (http://www.amazon.com/QS216-Quart-Q--Component-Speakers/dp/B004S8NXRC/ref=sr_1_1?s=car&ie=UTF8&qid=1397217251&sr=1-1&keywords=mb+quart)

What I want - I want a component set that hits HARD, sounds CLEAR, and doesn't hurt my ears from the tweets being harsh. I just want to feel it, you know, without running a sub yet, that may be later on down the road with the footwell. But right now I just want to enjoy some mids and highs alone. But most of all I want a speaker that will not crackle or pop from 70-80hz on down. I want my HPF to be off, or set on 50 atleast and to pack a punch for when the kick drum comes in on songs. anything is appreciated. I would like to place my order today and will take into mind any other speaker which is offered.

Oh! and these will be going in a 2005 S2000. I will also be sound deadening the doors when they come in as well, so anyone with recommendations on that route for best pricing and what to use as well.
