    5"x7"/6"x8" Speaker Suggestions

    I am looking to replace all four of my door speakers, which are 5"x7"/6"x8". Does anyone know of any decent speakers about 80-160RMS? I will be powering them with a MB Quart ONX4.80.

    if you are looking for budget, I recently purchased some 5x7 Hifonics 2 way drivers. I have 4 of them in my F-250, they sound great - they have a decent sweep above 90 hz (especially when equalized). I would highly recommend them, especially for $50/pair!

    Unless you're open to using adapters I only have Clarion or JBL for that size that I'm confident will be good with that amp. I do also have dB Drive as an option, but I've never sold them, just seen them and heard from other dealers that they sound good.

    I didn't even think about that, what size can you change them to, 6 1/2"?

    Yeah, 6.5" is an option. It may require some minor cutting depending on the clearance. What vehicle do you have?

    I had been using 2 pair of Infinity 6832's for 2 years and have been very pleased with them they have an adjustable tweeter and sounded really nice I just replaced them with 2 pair of RF power 6x8's which have been amazing so far but I would recommend either one.



    Clarion CX-501 HU
    Rockford Fosgate Punch 400-A4 on
    RF T1 power T152 and T1682 in front doors.
    DDm4 on 2 ZV3 18's
