Anyone have any recommendations? My passenger side speaker is blown and I need to replace it.

I have no intention of changing my factory head unit and I am sure most aftermarket speakers are a step up from the originals, so what should I get? I have been browsing Crutchfield, but their prices look a little on the high side.

That's practicle.

Sodar I have been impressed by the Infinity Kappas. Sound really good and are not terrible expensive. I have the marine version in my boat and they sound great.

If you need 6.5" speakers I have a set of brand new Polk DB650s that I bought to put into speaker cans, but were too small, the cans were actually sized for 6.75" speakers. Let me know if thats what size you need and we can work something out.

If you want to keep your factory head unit, go for something cheap. Virtually everything aftermarket is an improvement over OEM. And actually, buying more expensive speakers and then powering them off a head unit will often give you worse performance than if you went with cheaper speakers. Reason being that more expensive speakers are designed with power handling and SPL in mind, often making them less sensitive, whereas manufacturers understand that many users buying cheaper speakers will run them off a head unit and thus stress efficiency.

When it comes to getting speakers to sound good, installation is everything.

Thanks for the offer Puck, but I am looking to get out of this as inexpensive as possible! I would like to find 2- sets for the price of your one! :cool:

Sounds good! Off to Fry's or Best Buy I go! I think some speakers in the $60-70/set range should do me just fine!

Cameron, I just bought a set of Pioneer speakers for my '95 Chev. from Best Buy last week. All Pioneer speakers were on sale for 1/2 price so, I got them for $40. per pair. I felt like I did good and they sound good! I have 3 amps under the seat and 5 - yes, 5 - J.L.Audio 10" subs behind the seat and I haven't "rattled" the new speakers yet! Rick
