Hello. I'm new but old car audio buff. Haven't dabbled in years but I used to have a decent system years ago (Alpine 6 disc, Hifonics Gemini, Clif Design 6.5 comps, JBL 1200GTI....dinosaur stuff) and was pretty knowledgeable about all the new gear. Now I'm old and have kids and have 'inherited' my wife's POS 1994 Sentra with pathetic stock cassette deck and buzzy stock speakers. Mainly I'll be commuting to a new job and need something decent to keep me from falling asleep at the wheel.
So 1994 Sentra (XE beyotch) coupe. I think it take 5.25" front speakers (not sure). I've got my newer Alpine head unit and disc changer I could use (was about $900cdn at the time new so they aren't cheapos) and want to get decent front door coaxials at reasonable price and decent bass. The Sentra is a tin box so that means shallow mounting depth....not sure total depth even with aftermarket mounting plates. Don't want to spend too much on anything as this car has gotta go in a few years.
So any recommendations on reasonable 5.25" speakers? I bought some Kenwood KFC (Kentucky Fried Chickens) years ago and was surprised at how decent they sounded. I thought Kenwood was crap personally but they were great speakers....a bit bright on axis but sounded good in the door.
Appreciate your help. Please be gentle but don't need to oversimplify for me. Thanks
