Default best sound for 6x8s

i dont want to try to fit a sub in my truck because i like leaning my seat back but i have right now 4 6x8s with 75 watts going to each of them the doors are 4-way explods and the rears arwe 2ways pioneers they have a good overall sound quality and actually have good bass but i was wondering in the price range of max 250$ per speakers what speakers that r 6x8 have a good bass and a decent hi/low thank you

I know it is not a 6x8, but try a bazooka tube. It is small and gives you plenty of bass and space.

I put a pair of Elemental Designs 6.5 subs in the back of a buddy ranger this week with good set of componets up front. I just made adapter plates and ran the IB.

They don't make these anymore but I had a small stash and sold him a couple. JL and a couple other companies make somthing similar.

Here is what I had in my 95. You can usually find them cheaper on Ebay.
