Replacing 6x9s?

I've been trying to decide on what to replace the factory 6x9s with and so far my option seem to be rather limited if I go by what Crutchfield says will fit in the rear deck (even more so because Crutchfield Canada carries maybe 1/4 of what they do in their American store).

Any suggestions for a decent 3-way speaker that would not be amplified (or at least not now? They would be running off a mid-range Pioneer deck for now.

JL Audio, Pioneer or Kenwood are your best bets....look at sonicelectronics.com they have loads of options you can even use an adapter to swap the 6*9 to 6 1/2 so you get a crisper sound....i have the upgraded pioneer system in mine and im going to replace it all with component JL or Pioneer one day when I can afford it lol.....

Thanks for your input, I think I will go with some 6 1/2" Kenwoods once my tax rebate rolls in.

you should focus on the front door speakers more then the rear the rear are just for "fill"
stick with kenwoods for the price they are great
