    HELP PLEASE. pick out my door speakers

    I am looking for some 6x8's for my crown victoria door speakers and 6x9's for the rear deck. Spending limit is in the 65 dollar range per pair. What are my best options. I am also looking for 5 1/4 coaxial or component speakers to go in all four doors. Looking to spend 60 a set. What are my best options?
    BTW I am running a power acoustik 4 channel amp to my speakers. It claims to put out 90 watts RMS X 4 @ 2-ohms.

    For that amount, I would recommend the Pioneer Revs, good sounding speakers. You could make a bracket to fit a 6.5 in the 6x8 opening, its not too hard. I have a set of Rockford Power Coaxials in my rear deck and a set of the Power Comps waiting for custom kicks and they are both nice sounding speakers. I would recommend either.

    Ight. I kinda wanted to stay away from pioneer because my old ones blew on the amp. They do sound good though. Does pioneer make the rev in 5 1/4 also because I wanted to get a 5 1/4 added to each door and run the amp at 2-ohms per channel.

    I dont believe so, I had a Pioneer book I got from a local dealer that had all there current stuff in there, but I think the Revs only come in a 6.5, oversized 6.5, and the 6x8/5x7 size.

    Not at all. If the speakers sound good to your ears, that's all that matters.

    Exactly, its your car, so thats all that really matters. I have MB Quart passives with my Rockford Comps but they sound fine to me. Im sure they would sound better active, but dont have the money for it now, Looking foward how this turns out for you.

    Re: HELP PLEASE. pick out my door speakers

    well the previous post about mixing brands is only really half true

    can it sound good... yes...
    but it can also sound bad

    no speaker is perfect.. and usually come with some dips and peeks in their frequency response.. which can cause either a great - decent - or terrible effect to your music when you mix and match

    my old rainbows for example - which sounded good on their own - did not blend at all with any speaker i put them up against. ideally you want one speaker playing a certain freq range.. and if not.. try to keep the rear speakers crossed kinda low

    Re: HELP PLEASE. pick out my door speakers

    So I should invest in getting the same brand and find a brand that sells 6x8's 6x9's and 5 1/4's to have the best sound and even frequency response?

    Do you suggest a certain beand speaker I should go with that's close to the price ranges listed above? I thought about doing mtx, but never heard anything but a 6x9 by them and they don't hold that many wats. I'm no sure if they could hold up to the amp and play loud as I wanna go without blowing.
