Default Good 4X6'* for Clarity & Bass??

I am looking to get some 4X6'* for my STE. The dash has the spots for the speakers, but when I took the dash pad off, I found that there were no speakers there. Its not a big deal because it still has 6.5'* in the front doors and tweeters in all 4 doors and 6X9'* in the rear, but it is lacking up front since all the sound is coming from the sides or rear. So what I'm looking for is some nice clear sounding 4X6'* that will hit pretty hard as well, but I don't want to spend a lot either.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Shawn

you are not gonna get much bass from a 4x6 but they do put out nice mids and highs so i do not think these will fill your missing bass but the mids would fill nicely. i do not know what a ton of the 4x6'* out there sound like but my friend had some infinity ones in his explorer and they sound really nice and handle bass well for their size but they were around 90 so i dont know if that is in your price range or not. the 4x6s i have sitting in the back of mine are just for mid and treble and they do not handle bass well at all but they dont really need to since i got the 10'* sitting right next to them and of coarse the pair of 12'* in the trunk so good luck finding a pair.

I realize I'm not going to get a lot of bass for a 4X6...I'm just looking for a 4X6 that puts out a lot of bass compared to the average 4X6. Mainly I just want sound coming from the front, but I don't want all treble, because I have plenty of that with the 4 tweeters in the doors, not to mention the 6.5'* in the front doors that have decent treble as well. And my 6X9'* are 3 way so they have a bit of treble as well. I have plenty of bass for what I want...I don't need to rattle my whole car apart, and my 6X9'* rattle the decklid, all the door handles, and the mirrors when I turn up the HU like 3/4 of the way and turn the gain all the way up...its plenty for me...don't really want subs at all. This is with the factory head unit, factory amp, and Kenwood 6X9'* (don't remember the model off the top of my head). I think I'll go to circuit city or best buy or something and look at what they have, but from what I've heard you can't really go wrong with Sony Explodes for my price range. (~$50)

Thanks, I'm still interested in suggestions.

Shawn

Try www.discountjungle.net, they have the best prices IMO and Im definitely going to get some Infinity Kappa 4x6s for $79 from there. They look really good and will most likely hit pretty hard as they use the plate design. I heard some Boston Acoustic 4x6'* in the plate design and I really liked how much bass they put out. That was 4 years ago so I can imagine that they would be much improved.

If you want bass from Infinity'*, go with the Kappa'*. I had reference Series 5.25" components and there was no bass from them. Might have helped if they had been amped, but a friend has the Kappa'* in his car and they actually do some pumping.
Infinity is spendy, but you get what you pay for.
As for the Sony'*, they are known to have decent bass for the $$, but I believe Pioneer is going to be slightly cleaner sounding IMO.
If you are looking to spend under $75 I'd suggest either finding some Infinity 4x6" plate speakers on ebay, or get some Pioneer or Sony'* from your local Wal-Mart (I know I'm gonna hear smack for this).

This place is good too! I bought an Alpine Type R 12'' inch with amp and cap from them and saved a whole bunch and it even got to my house pretty fast too. No problems at all.
