    5 1/4" speaker recommendations?!

    I am going to be buying new speakers and need help deciding on some good ones. I have heard good things about Kenwood. Plus they are cheap! I don't want to spend over $80 on them! So any good recommendations would be helpful! Thanks!

    Re: 5 1/4" speaker recommendations?!

    99 Chevy Blazer LS. The speakers measure 6" to the outside. The mounting hole in the Blazer (the inside diameter) is 5 1/4". The outside is 6". So im not even sure if thats the right size. Do you think I could get 6.5s'' and be fine? I am looking at buying Alpine SPR-60c for the front doors.
    Im not even 100% what size speaker i need!

    Go to Crutchfield's web site and put your vehicle info in - they'll tell you what fits.

    I got some Alpine SPS-510 and I think I am going to get the front door speakers soon. I think I have made my mind on Alpine C-60 because I have heard them and they are really good and clean!

    I don't even know if the SPS-510s are going to fit. I just took a gamble because of the extended screw holes. Hoping they work!

    I'm going to grab a pair of these for my Monte. Nice find! I don't like the 35 rms rating but I'm only going to be running them off the HU for a while.

    We all have preferences and in some places they are in fact cheaper. If you know what your doing you can make a cheap system sound amazing.
