    Whats the best 6x8 to go with

    Hi all, I have a single cab f150. All 4 speakers are 6x8 or 5x7 will fit. So im told. Anyways I have a pioneer double din last years model avh1400. I just want to do a remove factory speaker/replace with new.
    1. whats the best to handle a little "not much" bass
    2. whats the clearest that you can think of and has good hi's
    3, all on a affordable budget. I really dont want walmart pioneer or ebay kickers but beggers cant be chosers when your not looking to drop a whole bank account on the best stuff.
    4. also will the head deck be strong enough or do I really need to get an additional amp to power them. I really wish I could get a componet set with the crossovers and tweeters. But in 6x8 I dont know if they make that.

    People please understand im somewhat new to car audio and asking truthfully because I dont know squat about car audio. so please be kind. Questions like these is why I signed up for this forum. Thanks everyone

    If I were you and wanted something decent, well priced and sounds good......


    2 sets of these, they're not your typical cheap " Walmart" Pioneers.

    Pioneer TS-D6802R (tsd6802r) 6" x 8" 2-way D Series Speakers

    Little cheaper

    Amazon.com: Pioneer TSD6802R 6 X 8 2-Way 260 Watt Speakers: Car Electronics

    Re: Whats the best 6x8 to go with

    all depending on if you want to add an amp i would go with 6.5's in the front

    Cadence CS2 65K 240 Watt Peak 6 5 inch 2 Way Speaker Component Kit | eBay
    something like this is an inexpensive component that needs little power

    or if you want to go a little better something like

    Boston Acoustics S60 6 5" Car Speaker System w Seperate Tweeters and Crossovers 090283357281 | eBay


    for the rear fill you cant beat


    Aura 5700RPM 5" x 7" 2-way Coaxial Speaker Pair 269-182
    neo magnet, i put 4 of these in my dads mini van and they sound great on a stock radio really the best bang for buck and clear sounding with nice bass output

    you could do like i did and just put 4 of these on the headunit, i liked the way they sounded and very efficient.

    Re: Whats the best 6x8 to go with

    Best Kits BKUSB60 Car Speaker Adaptor Plates 5 1 4" 6 1 2" to 6"x 8" 6"x 9" | eBay
    if you went with the components you would need adapter plates

    but the more i think about it the aura are amazing speakers on little power i was really surprised with he 4 of them

    http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=269-182

    and 2 get a neo magnet speaker for under 50 bucks and if you buy both sets its free shipping so

    I really think he's looking for something simple that'll just drop in. He's new so I highly doubt he want to go through all the work it sometimes takes to put in components.



    Edit...Blah, just read #4 .
