Default Re: speakers

I'm running with Infinity Reference speakers in the doors, they give me crisp clean sound however they give very little on the low end(no bass). So I added two JL Audio Subwoofers in place of the rear seats. If you are looking for a good mix of audio just in the doors, Polk Audio makes some good speakers.

Or you have the option of going component, which is where you put small subwoofers in the doors(same size as current speakers) then you would mount tweeters on the dashboard(cut holes run wires, all that).

Hope this helps!

Recap: Infinity is great for crystal clear highs-mids
Polk Audio does pretty well overall with some kick

Thats like asking who makes the best bottled water. its really up to you. You have to take into account a few things:
1. your budget
2. your taste in music
3. your available space
4. What are going to do with it when you get it done? competition? rattle other peoples windows? show off? or just have good tunage in yer ride

When it comes to car audio. You really have to do your homework. I dont think there is a cookie cutter recipe to follow. Start with a quality head unit that has room for expansion. Choose good door speaker replacements. In your case, 5x7 or 6x8 work very well. Subs will be a whole other beast. How much space you have will set the pace, choose, or build a box first. Add subs based on the 4 topics listed above. do your homework and ask alot of questions. 70% of subs sounding bad ass comes from the right speaker in the right box for the right music. the other 30% is the gear. and the old addage "you get what you pay for" could never be any more true when it comes to car audio.
Good luck and hit me back if you have questions, ill try to help as best I can
