Default New setup just arrived!

Alright guys, I just got my speakers and head unit from Amazon for a great deal, I bought 4 Pioneer TS-A6993R 6x9 speaker's and a Pioneer DEH-4200UB Head Unit.

Just wondering what you guys think about it, and how hard is it to put 6x9's in the doors?

Also I'm thinking about purchasing an amp to get the most out of these speakers, so what do you think would be the best to get for my dollar? I have about $150 now but should have about $200 in a week or so.

It's not hard to put 6x9's in the doors, just use the templates provided on the box of the speakers and cut out the extra material with a Dremel.

I did this about 4 years ago, the 6x9's are a nice improvement over the stock 5x7's with highs, midrange and some lows. However if you're looking for more bass, a subwoofer is the way to go.

Post up some pics of your new items. You might have to do some modding to get the 6x9's to fit in your doors.

Yeah, I'm looking to add an amp and a sub to my setup around April, along with a 3" lift.

My dad always had Pioneer when I was growing up so its grown on me, haha. I even have an OLD Pioneer GM-5 amp that I'm going to try to hook up but I can't find anything on it online! I'll post a picture of it next time I can, its pretty much a dinosaur.

So I have the head unit and the rear speakers installed right now. I kinda jerry rigged it in there but what ever. I do hear a huge improvement with just the new rear speakers.

I'll post pictures tomorrow when I'm done with the front speakers.

You should be able to grab a good 4ch amp with about 40 - 60w per channel within your budget.
Check out crutchfield.com too, lots of great resources. Their prices can be a little higher, but their service is top notch.

Thanks Bugman, I looked around and might buy one. I'm not sure now that it is all installed, it's quite loud as is.
Here you guys go, some pics:
