Thank you. As of now, they're stock. I'm looking to upgrade them to Alpine Type R speakers and maybe amp them later on. I can't seem to get a good recommendation on speakers. I've heard the Type R'* in a party bus and they seemed pretty good..then again...it was a party bus. lol

You're welcome man. I think you're gonna like the Type R mids/highs, they are decent, especially if you have a decent amp.

So yesterday I had the worst day at work that I've ever had. 110 degrees and humid as hell. Worked from 5:30 A.M. *humid even at that time* until 6 P.M.. I do heavy manual labor so I was dying. I almost passed out. I wasn't in the best of moods. I get home and my mom tells me something came for me. I instantly start smiling. I turn around and see this...

Decent may be good enough for me. I'm definitely going to amp them down the line. I'm doing a little at a time but it'* definitely going to happen. lol. You have been such a tremendous help thus far. Thank you soooo very much.

I've heard the Alpines in a party bus and they sounded really nice. I really want speakers that can get loud and still be clear. I'm not too worried about bass considering I'll have 2 12'* soon. Any suggestions? I want them to get loud with no distortion. I ask a lot. haha. I will be amping them though.

I'm sure he'd be happy no matter what speakers he got, anything is an upgrade from stock.

I listen to everything, mainly house and older hip-hop. I hope they're as good as they were in the bus.

One thing I learned a looooong time ago, just because a certain speaker sounds good in one car doesn't mean it'll sound good in another. Cars are so different from one to the next, transfer function is different, acoustic properties are different, mounting location and angles are different. Just make sure you get a good amp to power them and spend the time needed to tune it and dial it in properly and you should be happy.
