speaker opinions

I blew the 6.5 in speaker in my passenger door so im going to replace both door speakers. What do you guys recommend as the best replacement? I heard that infinity 62.7i speakers are a good replacement.

Boston Acoustic... sorry I don't know the model number but they have like three levels of speakers.

All of them are good.

Infinity Kappa 63.7i 6.5" 3-way 225W Speakers

Inifinity has always made exceptional car speakers. I have 8 of them in my car (2 4x6's, 4 6.5's and 2 6x9's) and they sound superb. I would recommend a small 2-channel amp for these just to get all of the sound out of them, but even just as stock replacements they sound very nice.

I prefer Kenwood or Cerwin Vega. an extra amp is a must to get all the sound out of the speakers. I mainly prefer Kenwood mainly because I know someone who is a salerep for them. y'all should see this guys setup. Amazing!

Buy OEM. I still have all OEM speakers in my SS but put bass blockers in all the highs....they sound crystal clear.

Or, you could go w/ Boston.

Exactly. The site is good to help you figure out what size speakers are in your car (if you don't already know), as well as what adapter (if any) you need to replace your OEM head unit, but other than that, it's a complete rip-off.

I usually use crutchfield to compare different products, then I go to onlinecarstereo.com to purchase...

As you can see it's a VERY subjective question.

First...what's your budget?

Go to www.woofersetc.com and look at some of the companies displayed here.

If you want a fairly reasonable speaker have a look at alpine, boston, JBL. Should be able to get a set of sepakers for under $130. The Image Dynamics CTX65CS is a great speaker but the cost is $180.00.
