Default Speaker Reccomendations

So the Speakers in my Ranger aren't in the best shape and I've been thinking of getting them replaced for a while now. The front passenger speaker is dead and the rear driver speaker is starting to fade a little while the other two have a nasty habit of rattling and sounding like they are becoming loose in their housings.

Does anyone have any speaker recommendations for a 2007 Ranger. I want to keep the Factory head unit (6 Disc CD Model with AUX port down low) and I really don't want a speaker box in the back seat area as it is used quite frequently for passengers and general cargo. Something that is better than stock but something that isn't gonna shake the door panels off.

Thanks in Advance!

If you're shopping around for speakers and want to keep the oem headunit be sure to look for something with a high sensitivity.

90+ dB is a number to look for.

To help with rattles i'd also suggest a sound dampening door kit too.

If your speaker pockets in the doors are the same as our models in south africa, a 6 inch speaker should fit. I reccomend you fit them with mdf spacers and use some sound deadening material on the panel behind the speaker to minimize rattles. Sony, pioneer, jvc etc, any of those brands will give good sound quality on a stock head unit. Just be warned the power output fiqures on these speakers are completely bs. Theyre all rated with p.m.p.o, or 1000watts of music free distortion.... turn the box over and look for the rms value or nominal power. You should be looking for 35watts rms but no more than 45watts rms. I hope this helps!
