    Need new speakers to match subs...

    So I recently upgraded my subwoofers in my car, but now the bass drowns out the mids and the highs. I have already spent my entire budget on the subs, so I cannot affor the absolute best. I just need something that can keep up with 2 15" Obsidians and a PPI BK1300.1D amp. First off I do not know what size the speakers in my car are (2000 Ford Taurus SES). And when it comes to indoor speakers I don't know much about brands or anything...where should I start?

    Turn the gain now by now to math the speakers until you save some money for speakers and a amp for them.

    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    Re: Need new speakers to match subs...

    I found Fosgate P1572 5x7's that I think will be perfect. I will get a 200watt amp for them and I think this should be sufficient...in the Taurus is it 5x7 in both front and back? And will these keep up with my bass?

    I'd switch over to 6.5" components

    Well mine were $310 shipped. I still think they were worth it. They wanted like $280 shipped for the non pro's.

    Must be nice to be able to price per order and not have a listed price.
