you should really stick with components they give you the best sound you can get and they also can handle as much power as the 6x9'*

I have done some research for you and found that the front door speakers are in fact, 6.5s. The choice of speaker is pretty much unlimited with the speaker size it is. Myself, I have Sony 5.25s in my 97. Sounds great and I dont need to run an extra amp to push them. Pioneer has gone downhill since the late 90s. So, I would steer away from them. I have however, had good luck with (believe it or not.) Roadmasters. They have a good clear high and mid and also have a really good bass response. I have had these speakers in 2 vehicles and LOVED them! Good luck with your choice and installation!

Yes, absolutely match them! That would be awesome sound. No question, just get Polk speakers.

ok so i installed these pioneer TS-G1641R into my car front door speakers they are the 6 1/2'* and for some reason now i dont get the bass that i used to get from the 6x9'* when i had the factory speakers installed. Do u think its because now my head unit is taking more power to power these aftermarket speakers? If so, what amp do you reccomend? Im not looking into something real expensive, jsut something cheap to get the bass what not back. And i dont really want to buy a subwoofer. I wasnt sure if i shouldve disconnected the factory tweeters but they are disconnected.

Good thing you disconnected the factory tweeters. It'* a great start. It'* either that the Pioneers just don't put out as much bass as the stock speakers or that you're not giving them enough power.

Find an amplifier with a high input so you can go from the head unit to the amp via speaker wires and then from the amp to the speakers, also via speaker wires. Amps without formidable high inputs need RCA cables, and your stock head unit doesn't have RCA outputs. I use an Alpine 4-channel amp in the SLE, but I'm about to put in an Infinity that has more than twice the RMS power per channel. Also coming up then is a speaker upgrade. Your speakers probably can take 40W RMS per channel as your sound system stands right now, so get an amp that is around that power range, or 450W peak, and be sure that it'* a good brand.

Running two speakers on a 40W line makes the two speakers run at 20W each. That'* the way it comes wired from the factory. You could do some different wiring, but this is basically it. Your speaker that you get from a store already has a tweeter, so disconnecting the factory tweeter lets you route all the radio'* power where it needs to go, and you get better sound because the factory tweeter doesn't "interfere."

Default Confused

Couple of ?*

Why should i stay away from Sony. I like the sony xplods alot....

Another ? I have 2 6x9 Pops speakers I'm getting ready to install and I'm wondering which door speaker brand would match up nice with these?
I want a good bass volume with spoken words also?

Another ? When I install the door speakers should I leave the door tweeters connected or would they throw off the quality by them remaining factory...I also have a sony xplod radio. thanks
