stock front speakers are 5.25", the hole is big enough with the right adapter for a 6.5".

pioneer, kicker, and polkson are good brands to go by... If you spend $100 on a set of one of those brands, you'll get good speakers. Besides that, it depends on what sound you're looking for. If you don't want to eventually install an amp and sub, look for something with a low frequency response range. I have 45 Hz - 21 kHz, and they have just the right amount of highs and lows.

I have kickers up front, 45 RMS wattage.

yah arnt u still selling yours?? or was that someone else...

i did some research and found alpine spr-17c $155 @best buy ...90 @sonic electronix (for 2 speakers)

they are 300W max and 100W RMS (each speaker)
4 ohms
sensitivity - 87db
frequency - 65hz-27000hz (27 khz)

i like the alpine since it is a good brand and a lot of frequency ppretty good price...

i also like these

250W max and 125W RMS each (per speaker)
30 oz magnet

no need for a new thread. Alpine is alright, i wouldn't trust those low-priced boss speakers though. I'm going for JBL power series all around with a JBL amp for them. It will cost me more (probably about $550 for all 4 speakers with an amp) but the front speakers are 6.5" components, the rear are 6x9 3-way, and JBL has unmatched quality and durability, and the sound damn sexxy.

I'd go with Hertz(if you can find em) and a JL amp. I got rid of my hertz speakers when I sold my car and I miss em so much

I recently installed some polk sr6500 speakers in the front doors, bi-amped (woofers and tweets separately) with an active crossover. So far i am in love with these speakers. The Vifa tweeters are very smooth and do not strain your ears. If you have the money (800 new or 3 to 500 used) I would go for these, although any polks will kick ass. Other good brands are boston acoustics, alpine (type x), rainbow, CTD amoung others. You dont need to spend a fortune to get top of the line sound, just shop around for used ones (speakers will last a verry long time if treated well)
