They best brands that are in a descent price range are some of these:

Kicker
JBL
Infinity
Alpine
Hifonics
Diamond Audio

If I had to pick one, get kicker. Remember component speakers have a better sound quality then coaxial.

I have infinities. Love them.
If you can't afford them, Pioneers are a good choice. Plenty of people here can vouch for many different pioneer 6X8s.

FWIW, I love my Pioneers. Model # in sig.

Pioneer TS-D802P are good, i bought them, but i returned them cuz i thought the one model below them were better. dont ask.

another brand id reccomend would be kenwood excelon 6x8s. i was weary about kenwood, but kenwoods new line "excelon" are amazing.
