well the thing is, that most headunits dont run the same wattage as stock systems, for example, my kenwood deck ran about 16 rms to each speaker, and my jensen runs about 30 rms to each speaker. So your problem is most likely that there arent enough watts going to each speaker, unless your talkin like static and other things like that then it could have been something you didnt in the installation that like clipped a wire for the speakers or something. hopefully that helped a little

Uhm, well i know kenwood ones run for about 80 bucks, and pioneer runs for about the same. my suggestion is go to either onlinecarstereo.com or ikesound.com because they are wholesale sites and they have tons of 6x9 for cheap. And itll give you some choice rather than me throwin out one or two names that you might not be satified with
