alpine s series = the best sounding entry level speakers ive ever heard. ive sold clarion, jl audio, kicker, mb quart, mtx, pioneer and a few others and the alpines kick all their asses!! your 6.5s will run @ $90 and the 6x9s will run @ $110. check them out. i have the 6x9s in the rear deck and the r-series components up front. by the way. they mids for the r-series have huge magnets, but they dropped into my treps doors with no problems. i couldnt believe it. i had to space them out about 2 inches to fit them into my old honda.
