Default New speakers for my 94' SSE

Hey, I have a 94' SSE and I plan on getting a Pioneer CQ-5301 stereo. But neways, Im gonna put new speakers in because the sound system in it is depressing. Maybe it was top of the online back then but today I can sit in a Honda Accord and get blown away compared to mine. So my first question is, what are the speaker sizes in the car? Can I change em without whipping the panel off? And what do you recommend for a student with a tiny budget? Thanks in advance.

tIf you have a gain slider below the radio the front speakers are a 5.25 for the larger hole on the door and the tweet is 1.5 ....In the back you have 6x9'* that are "amped" and the 1.5 tweeters

if you dont have the gain slider then you have the 5.25 in the doors and the 1.5 tweet and 6x9'* in the back.....
I have a full out RF system so that is prolly out of your budget, but look for a good component set, of that is out of the question then a good set of 2 way speakers should make a difference.....unfortunalely everyone has a different taste in how a speaker sounds do the best advice i can give you is go to a local audio shop and take a listen...

if you dont want component speakers, make sure you get coaxials (2-way). triaxials and quadaxials (3-way and 4-way) are a waste of money

We switched driver doors on the driver side and changing all that stuff on it is the hardest door job ive ever done. I dont plan on taking those panels off anytime soon because it was a 2 man job to stick it on. But thanks for the help. Whats the dfference between coaxial and trixial?

yea theyre easy to take off cuz all theyre being held on by is like 3 screws and plastic plugs but try transferring a window motor or something and see what I mean by a challenge.
