what would you suggest for 5x7 components in the front and 6x8 speakers in the back for around $100 a pair.

I got infinity kappa 5x7's for 88 bucks. They're 100wrms @ 4ohm. They're really clear. They're pretty balanced. You should run a sub with them. However, I've been having some problems with them but it could be the amp. I'm going to post a review on them in a week or two. Anyways, good luck looking for a set.

Oh yah, I'm going to be pushing about 90wrms to them... Right now I'm guessing I'm pushing about 35-50wrms right now and there's some cracking/scraping. I'm going to figure out fi it's my amp or not this weekend and if it's the speakers I'm getting a new set.

i have some diamond M371i's, i think that is the number, if not, they are the 5x7 coaxials, and i love them. other ones that you might be interested in are the JL TR570-cxi or infinity kappa 572.5cf's or the reference 6802cf's, or maybe the eclipse se8373 (3-way)
oh, and as far as the components go, Boston Acoustics makes a 5x7 plate that sounds awesome. they are the SL80's. they are a little pricy though.

I have Infinity Kappas in my truck and they are AWESOME!! I have them running on a Memphis amp! Very happy with them. I don't think you can go wrong with them!
