    What do you have in the front? Get the front sounding good first, then worry about the back.

    I'd say start with a good set of comps for the front, with appropriate amp.

    first thing first.....take all that sony xplod **** out of there.......its not worth the money for the child labor that made it

    Second, forget about back speakers, at least for now. Pick up a nice set of 6.5" components for up front. Music is recorded for only 2 front channels (for the most part), so really front speakers is all you technically should have in your car. Rears can be added later, but should not be a main focus.

    If you are looking to go cheap, look into Phoenix Gold rSD components, they can be had for less than $100 shipped. Also I believe there are some CDT components that can be had for cheap and have been getting good reviews.

    Then get yourself a quality 2 channel amp that will give your components the proper power. rSD's will want at least 120 watts rms. Profile amps are great for the price. Millionbuy.com has them for the cheapest that I have seen

    Properly install them and you will be happy, they will be far superior than the sony speakers you have

    you might need some mdf rings for new component speakers and the tweeters should fit in the factory area. if not u could easily make it fit with some drilling. Also sound deaden your doors. and you might want to upgrade your factory speaker wire.

    Here are the Phoenix Gold Rsd65cs's for $87 shipped:

    http://www.audiosavings.com/product_...2-133ce952abd6

    If you click the link, you'll see a picture of what you get. Two midrange drivers, two tweeters, and two crossovers. The crossover has a single input from the amplifier, which then splits the signal, it sends the high frequencies to the tweeters, the lows to the mids. You supply the wiring and mounting.

    Re: Looking for some opinions and advice!

    you mite want to install new speaker wires. than run them back to the amp and connect the amp turn on lead and RCA to your headunit. Then run the power wire from battery to amp and ground wire to a bare metal frame of the car. I guess the hardest part is making it look like a clean install.
