Yeah, my speakers have two sets of wires. The highs and lows. So the DB'* are a good choice then? Even for my car? Ill check them out.

Hmmm Interesting. I've never seen the Stockers in my 94 so I woudlnt know, but from what I read on here they are a bit tricky with the factory amp and gain slider and all.

After searching on 1993 SLE'* claim, I found a decent pair of dual voice coil 6x9'* that would work well with your current setup. The best part is they can be a part of a future upgrade since they handle a good amount of power and can be driven by an amp later down the road if you decide to go that route.

IIRC the stock bose speakers aren't DVC, but they're dual drivers. Dual voice coils are two voice coils that power the same driver motor, and need the same input.

Your new speakers are fine, but a stock head unit can only drive them about 10% of their rated power, so you're not able to move the cones much, producing much bass.

Don't ditch your sonys yet, but feed them some power kid.

The sonys arent dual voice coils though. They just sounded really bad, I mean they sounded like they were gonna blow. all groggy and stuff. the stock speakers sound so much better.
