I was planning on buying components, but my car needed some work done to it forcing me to sell the amp i was going to use and all the wires i had.
I still want to ugrade my speakers, but im not in the financial state to afford components because with components comes amps, wires, etc.

I figured to save money i would dis connect my rear speakers and put coaxials in my front doors, and i would install some deadoning too. I want to get alot of bass out of these speakers, so i figured i would cut larger holes (i have 6.5" holes) and install 6x9's. Im not sure if its a good idea or not because i hear that 6x9's are mainly for rear fill only.

what do you think

6"x9"s wont sound as good as 6.5"s, and i dont think the increase in bass would be worth it, it's up to you though

Yeah theres like no difference between 6.5" and 6x9 in loudness... but theres quite a difference in sq because the cone is more evenly distributed along the voice coil.

I actually just went looking at 6.5" coax with my buddy for his blazer yesterday. We really liked the inifinity reference and memphis power reference coax's, and they were both relatively.
