    Look for an efficient speaker if you are not going to be running amps... pioneer, infinity, rockford, kicker... all kinds of speaks around.

    Do not get 6x8s. You can easily make a mod and fit 6.5s in the explorer.

    6x9 and 6x8 are more bassy speakers. 6.5's are more musical and need less power. Its is also a good idea to look into component speakers. It might be a lil more expensive but its worth it. It comes with tweters and most of the time crossovers which helps alot.

    6.5's are the way to go but if you're really lazy and just want to drop something in get Pioneer Revs

    Re: 6x8 Speakers?

    There's nothing wrong with 6x8 speakers. There's really no reason to do the custom work to fit 6.5" speakers unless there is a certain type that you would much rather choose from.

    To be quite honest, if you aren't amping them, anything other than bottom-line speakers will do. If you don't plan to amplify them, either stick with your stock speakers or just get some cheap replacements, because you won't notice much of a difference either way.
