Default 02 Bonneville Monsoon Speaker Replacement

Ok so I have done some research on different forums and the internet in general. But I can't wrap my head around what is needed for speakers. Right now I just want to replace the front door speakers. I have the monsoon system and from what I can tell I need speakers with 2 Ohm Impedance. I have found two different sets by infinity that I believe will work.

Sonic Electronix - Compare Products

Now is the more expensive of those two really going to be worth the extra 60 bucks? Also if someone knows of speakers even better with a better price tag or if I am completely off here let me know please.

I am keeping the stock head unit and the stock Monsoon amplifier.

I also need to know what the stock monsoon systems RMS and Peak power are for all the speakers if anyone knows

Thanks so much for your help! I have spent hours on this and yet it eludes me :P

you can go several ways, ive only ever gone one way so ill say that up front, the stock gm stuff sucks. its low power and poor audio quality and on all the bose ones and that ive just started over. spending 200 on one channel doesnt really make sense to me and those are going to be quiet and flat becase the stock amp is no where near that power. a decent higher power HU and some appropriatly sized components will blow that away. and you can get the new cool stuff like usb, ipod control, and bluetooth

I'm with JW. On my 02 I replaced EVERYTHING in the car. The HU, all the speakers, and I used a new amp.

I didn't go all out, but I didn't get bottom of the barrel either, and it sounds 100x better than the stock stuff.

I think you can do what I did for less than $800.

depends on what your sound goals and what type of music you like. i think you can get a hu for about 200 and speakers 6x9'* and 6.5'* for maybe 200-250. oviously will be better with an amp and higher power speakers but a well matched hu and speekers will still sound a ton better than stock.

Don't even need to spend that much on a HU.

The one I currently have (which will be going in the truck) was only $80.

It'* got the same EQ capabilities and power of the $200 ones. It'* HD/Sat Radio ready. The only thing it doesn't have is USB or Bluetooth, but that'* because I bought it before the BT thing was all the rage.

I'm in the market also. BUT, I don't want 600 pounds of speaker box in the trunk. I'd like to just replace the HU, speakers and Bose amp.

My music preference is rock, heavy rock, some metal, (old school Metallica). None of that crap that causes seismometers in Japan to go off=rap, R&B etc.

Basically my goal is, I want to FEEL the punch of the drums, and hear the crystal clear highs of cymbals. ALL AROUND ME. Not the punch from the trunk, or the highs from the front. EVERYWHERE!

I listen to rock and country. I have a great set up for highs and mids. To feel the drums though, you WILL need a sub. Just one though, and a 10 inch is perfect for the "punch" of rock drums.

What is your "professional" opinion of those bass tubes?
