    Looking to buy some speakers to complete my tribute.

    Hey yall, I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute, and im lookin to get some new speakers for it. The stocks are supprisingly not bad, but im just looking for a little more sound overall. I already have a sub, so my lows are taken care of, so id just like some better mids/highs. Btw, the stocks are 6x8's, and on the front i have seperate tweaters that are right by the window. I would like to either keep those tweaters, or get some new ones that can be put back in there. Im a highschool student, so im trying to keep things relatively cheap. btw, i will also need an amp to drive those (my hu puts out 20ish per channel.

    Thanks!
    -Kyle

    Re: Looking to buy some speakers to complete my tribute.

    Ya, I was hoping to keep it below 2-3 hundred. I also just got a pair
    Of pioneer 6x9's from a friend for cheap, and was wanting to put them in the back with my sub. A lot of times, I will lift the tailgate up to listen to music with a group, but the sub drowns it out. Anyway I was wondering if I could run an amp to the rear channel rca's and still have my stock speakers going from the wiring harness. Thanks again

    Re: Looking to buy some speakers to complete my tribute.

    Hmm... well some bad news guys, it appears that there are some more important things that i need to replace on the car (window switch, door locks) and wont be buying door speakers for a while. However, im still thinking about the 6x9's in the rear. Does anyone know where i can get some boxes and a dual amp kit for fairly cheap? Like less than 40 bucks.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kyle

    Re: Looking to buy some speakers to complete my tribute.

    I would make or buy a adapter for up front and put 6.5 componets and get some better 6x9's than those pioneer for the rear or keep them if they handle enough power and put a 4 channel amp on them. What kind of subs are you trying to keep up with?

    Well the thing is now I better wait for the door speakers with the other repairs that I have coming now, but I'd still like to work on that 6x9 idea I had. I'm wanting to put them in the cargo area where my sub is so there is more mids and highs when I open the back up. I got the amp and speakers for 50 bucks... so I'd like to see if I can work this out. So I guess what I'm wondering is if you think this is a good idea or not. Btw I have a single 10 inch JL 10w1v2 that has about 200 watts running to it through a JL amp.
