    Improving car audio for first time, help please!

    Hi,

    I own a Kia Rio HB 2012 with a stock system (4 speakers + 2 tweeters). I currently have around $200 - $300 to spend on speakers and an amp, Ill get a subwoofer later. The thing is Im not really sure what to get about the speakers, should I get 4 coaxials + 2 tweeters, or a pair of components (replacing tweeters + front door speakers) plus a pair of coaxials for rear doors?

    As for the speakers, which are some suggestions for my budget? I was looking into Infinity Kappas and Sound Ordnance P-65C. Im not sure about the amp as Im looking to add a sub in the future.

    Thanks for your help

    check the depths you have to play with for the door speakers, splits and a set of coaxils would be what I recommend (and a 5 channel amp)

    I would go with components and coax. The alpine pdxv9 is a good 5ch amp when you're ready. I know a lot of people on a budget swear by the kappas, so i'll say yes to those by ways of the grapevine.

    Kappas, I believe, are 2-ohm, and some day they wouldn't take a chance on Infinity's word that they won't damage a hu that's not 2-ohm stable. Just a thought...
