get some components. i have infinity kappa 680.9 components and they sound awesome but they are on the pricey side. i would suggest either some component kicker door speakers or some 3 way kenwoods. either one sounds good

Also got the Kappas. Havent had a problem with them. I had an old set of Pioneers and the cone part ended up seperating from the cloth part. Dont know if there is a BEST but I feel you get what you pay for.

I like my Infinity Reference 2 ways.
They are a great value.

Are all ranger speakers the same? because i got an 04 ranger edge and the side speakers are starting to go. is it a 6x9 and are there aftermarket speakers that will fit that size? thnkz

----------

when changing the speakers on the door, should i change the wiring too? and i am looking a a 7" face deck for the truck. should i look at the amps on that and pick my setup on speakers? and is an upgraded amp needed because stock ranger edges have 2 8" subs in the back.

You can use 5x7's or 6x8's, they are the same overall frame size. the only difference is size of cone area and surround. Ive used MTX Thunder Coax's, Polk audio db's, and currently using older Pioneer TS-D681R series or "revs". The new version of the Pioneer "revs" is TS-D6802R I believe. However Ive also heard the Infinity (both kappa and reference) and Polk Dxi's and they also sound good as well.

x2 theyre 6x8s or 5x7s, youd have to cut for 6x9s in the door.

All speakers are not the same. Some reproduce some music better than others. As a child of the 60's my musical preference is guitar influenced rock. But I like old school R&B with some bass. I have found that Infinity or Alpine reproduce the rock riffs better.

I build 60's musclecars and usually put Infinity 6x9's in the rear deck and smaller Polk's in the front kick panels. That allows for some bass impact that does not take away from how rock truly sounds. A test for a good speaker is whether or not you can clearly hear the drummer. If you are at a concert you can.
