    Choosing some 5x7 / 6x8 speeakers...

    First and foremost, belay the order to suggest a 5.25" or 6.5" speaker with an adapter plate. That is not an option for this particular vehicle.

    Speakers to choose from:

    1. Infinity Kappa 572.5CF
    2. Alpine SPR-574A
    3. JL Audio TR570-CXi
    4. JL AUdio XL570-CXi


    Which would you go with and why?

    I would go with the JL XRs(i assume you meant XRs)..why??? because I have owned them and they sounded excellent. They impressed a few people who have a much better ear than I have as well(musicians, 1 of whom does some recording work for a local college). I had them running off about 120 watts per side. I have not heard the infinities or alpines. I did have the TRs for a week while waiting for my XRs to arrive. The TRs are a good sounding speaker, but there is a night and day difference between them and the higher end XRs.
