    Component Help Please

    I would love some advice or suggestions. First off, I have an older BMW that has a 4x6 in the kick plate area. I know I can use a 4" component there and have a few in mind I'll list below. However, I also hear with a little modification I could install a 5.25" component and be happier.
    In the rear there are nasty old 5.25 components. I was thinking of just throwing some newer ones in. Again, I hear I should just go coaxial in the rear, but I want opinions. I will eventually throw 2 1o's in the trunk, but thats a few months down the road.

    Here are the ones I am considering:

    Diamond Audio M641 4 for $105
    Diamond Audio M651 5.25 for $132

    MB Quart PCE210 4 for $128
    MB Quart QSC213 5.25 for $148
    MB Quart RCE213 5.25 for $85
    MB Quart PCE213 5.25 for $110

    Phoenix Gold RSD5CS 5.25 for under $100

    Or, if I went the coaxial route, please throw some suggestions at me.

    Other thoughts or opinions?

    Thanks!

    Maybe I should add another thing... I listen to mostly rock, and some classical. I want sound quality more than anything, good mids, some bass.

    im not a huge fan of mb...

    odds are you could probaly fit 5.25 in the 4's and do that if possible...
    forget about the rear speakers.. take that money and put it towards better front speakers...

    and without an interior amp - almost any aftermarket speaker you buy will never reach its potential

    you can get the Diamond M's on eBay for a great price, about $150 after taxes and shipping.

    Diamond Audio M651 5.25 “ for $132


    MB Quart QSC213 5.25” for $148

    MB Quart PCE213 5.25” for $110

    - I would do one 5.25" set in the kicks, forget about the rear... rears are only needed to please rear seat passengers, surround sound, or OEM systems with no sub... it will sound better in the front seats with only a front set.

    The speakers above from your list are all excellent bang for the buck, can't go wrong there.
