    Help with speakers, sub or no sub?

    I own a 2002 Chevy Blazer ZR2 (2-door) the speaker setup is:
    on dashboard=4x6
    in door panels=6.5
    rear panel=6x9
    The thought process is, can I get good sound with just these size speakers? I love to have some bass, but I sometimes haul crap around in the rear, so if i put a sub box in, I will have limited space, obviously. I guess I could unhook the subs everytime I need to haul something big, but I would prefer to have one solid secure setup. Does anyone know of any good speakers to replace the stock ones that will give me a good range of sound? I mainly listen to hard rock, but I like dance and rap if I am in the mood. I am going to replace the head unit as well.
    thank you for your time

    i dunno i'd go with a sub. if you are limited in space buy like an 8" sub.

    but like you said if you are in need of the space i think you should upgrade those speakers you should get a decent amount of bass. just amp them up and you should be fine.

    Yeah. I would just get some nice 6.5" components for the front, and see if you can make a small wood baffle to accomodate a pair of 8" subs in the 6x9" holes. Just make sure if you put 8"s in there, you sound deaden the area around it to prevent annoying rattles.

    what about a (hidden) sub with a mtx thunderform or something? they are almost all made to take up an unused space in your car(like behind a side panel in the rear.)

    Re: Help with speakers, sub or no sub?

    thanks for all of your help. I think I am going to get a sub put in anyways and just borrow some one elses truck for moving stuff
    That infinity basslink is pretty sweet, anyone hook up 2 of them in their vehicle, or are those mainly used for one sub only?
    thanks again for your help
