    Looking to upgrade mah door speakers

    Hey all, need some advice. Right now I've got some unamplified JL VR coaxes in my doors and I couldn't be more displeased with them. They don't sound particularly good and don't have enough output to make me happy. I'm looking for a set of coaxes or comps (I have tweeter pods in the pillars, ya think aftermarket tweets can fit there?) to use with an amp for <200. What would you suggest? Car is 02 Civic Si if you're wondering.

    -Dave

    Try amping the speakers you have as nothing sounds very good or loud off HU power...

    Maybe, but they sounded pretty iffy when I auditioned them, but I just needed audio at the time. Funny how that works out.

    MLI's...? A popular tweet is the Seas Neo from Madisound, as djman mentioned. There are a slew of mids out there, but the ID OEM, Mach's, and Dayton RS, in my opinion seem to be the best values (based on what I have read). I would like to try the OEM's... if my deck ever gets here

    You should also know that after being here for almost 3 years that I do zero car audio whatsoever outside of building and designing enclosures. I'm far more interested in home audio theory and applications than car audio.

    Re: Looking to upgrade mah door speakers

    Check into the PG Rsd's. I know they are a huge forum boner and a few people have had problems with them, but for 87smacks shipped from Audiosavings, they are hard to beat.

    Love mine so far. Only had them a week though. Like I keep saying, time tells all.

    I lol at those people!

    Have 75rms to each side and perform perfect for my tastes............and I have had over 150db vehichles with many highs, probably to many highs and these do just fine with 75rms.

    Those people saying that, either don't know what they are talking about, or don't have them and just saying to say.

    I do recommend a good clean 75x2rms amp though.
