Need Audio Help

I am looking right now to get new speakers for the balt. should I get 2way or 3way speakers? plus input as to what you've used or have heard would be nice. I later on wanna add 2 10"s and an amp, any suggestions or tips would be appreciated!

ok, well to start of....do you have stock stereo or aftermarket? and what are your music tastes? i have two-way speakers because i get good mids and highs from them and the low bass from the subs. i'd say go 2-way if you're going to stick with a decent aftermarket deck and no amp on the speakers. personally, i LOVE LOVE LOVE[ my alpine type r 6x9's. my front speakers are different though, and they dont even sell them anymore. but i personally suggest 2-way if you don't plan to put an amp on the speakers. that way you headunit powers the speakers well enough to get ample mids and highs.

well if i were you i'd just go with two way. typically, 3 ways speakers come with the midbass driver, a tweeter, and a supertweeter. so...2way is pretty much what you need anyways because it doesnt require power and if they're good speakers they'll be loud
