    Right choice for 5x7/6x8s?

    I am working on my latest system, with 2 15" Type Rs, what would be the best choice for 5x7s / 6x8s in my 98 Expedition? I am running a little short on money so my cap is around $120 per set. Any input in greatly appreciated!

    not as good as the bostons, but I am running pioneer premier 6x8's in my expedition. I think I paid $79 a pair for them

    6.5'S will fit in easy.Make some MDF baffles and deaden the doors.Put more into the front stage and forget the rears unless you really want them-they just detract from the front unless you turn them down so far that you don't really hear them anyway.

    The Top 50% of income earners pay 96.54% of All Income Taxes. The Top 1% Pay More Than a Third:34.27%...so, the next time you hear about "tax cuts for the rich", remember...those are practically the only people paying taxes.
