Going in a Toyota Tundra.
Tweeters that will be used. I have a set of Massive CT2 laying around. I also have a set of Focal TWU 1.5 I will play around with what ever one sounds best.

I have narrowed it down to either of these 6 1/2 speakers
looking at the Silver Flute W17RC38 6.5
or the SB Acoustics SB17NRX2C35

will be running 70 watts RMS per channel.
Active off of the head unit.

I plan on sound deadening the doors. I might even go a the extra step of making some templates to cover the holes in the inside door skin.

What speaker option would you go with and why.

Also if there is a better option than these two speakers for the 6 1/2 SEAS? ScanSpeak? Audax?

Would like to keep the cost around $100 or less per speaker.

looking for a decent sound quality with being the able to have some higher volume when wanted.
Also the subwoofer being used will probable be a single 8 inch sub with limited mounting depth behind the rear seat of the truck. So bass output from the sub will probably be limited

I don’t think you can go wrong either way. Heard great things about both. I have some SB Acoustics tweets and really like them.

Tough one
Silver flutes have a higher sensitivity but also higher power rating.

The SBs have always been a step above the silver flutes in terms of SQ but also double the price.

If you look at the FR charts the SF does better in the mid bass department.
