    Dad Blew his speakers, dosent want 'anything fancy'

    My dad blew the speakers on his 99 Caravan and he wants me to replace them. The problem is, he dosent have a HU, so i dont know what kind of speakers would run well off of such little power. Im simply replacing the speakers, No amps, No HU, so any sugestions would be great.

    they also have to be fairly cheap, i dont think he would want to spend much money on this. I was looking at some Kicker Coaxials in a store a few months ago, and i was considering those since they are so cheap. but im sure there are better options out there.

    I believe I am looking for 1 set of 6x9" and 1 set of 6.5"

    ill set the budget at less than 75 per pair for now, hopefully its not less, but i could always get used, so consider that too.....

    thanks in advance.

    just go to best buy and just pick up some old cheap ones. Or go to wal-mart and get the lightning audio speaker package. I installed some in a persons car and they sounded decent with no amp.

    JL XR series 6.5's should be in that price range (unauthorized, of course).

    Go to the junkyard and unscrew the nicest speakers you can find.
