id be looking for a better set of speakers that take closer to 50 or 100 watts rms... spend a little nmore money, and buy an amp for them and it will round out the stereo... I would never go with low end speakers with subs...

I'm hard pressed to call those speaker "low end". Memphis makes some of the best stuff you can get, and those are good speakers. the 6x9'* take 60 watts RMS...the 4x6'*, you really can't get them that take a lot.

I'm looking for speakers to top off this:
Amp : MTX Thunder 3401 - 400 watts RMS
Sub: Kicker L5 - 450 watts rms
Head unit: Panasonic CQ-7301U

How about these for the rear? http://www.crutchfield.com/*-vdvZGYp...00&I=107MMC690

Could you give me suggestions on speakers if the above ones suck?

the 4x6 wont work for you, you need a 5.25 and a component tweeter if possible

if i were you id go to the local shops and listen to what they have and decide based on what you like the sound of.. every brand and every model has its own sound and characteristics.. spend a little more cash, you wont regret it

that would be fine.. the rear isnt nearly as important as the front.. the rear speakers are justy there to fill in the sound a little bit

How about these...
http://www.crutchfield.com/*-vdvZGYp...fo&i=107MMC460
1993SLE, when you say the 4x6 wont work, do you mean it wont fit or itll sound like crap?
I'd really really prefer to get something that will fit into the stock locations, I don't want to do any cutting.

Okay, which of these two sets of 5 1/4" would you get? So the rears are 6x9 and fronts 5.25?

http://www.crutchfield.com/*-vdvZGYp...51800&I=065S55
or
http://www.crutchfield.com/*-vdvZGYp...00&I=107MMC525

Toast, if I can afford it I'll get these. How much harder is it to hook up component stuff? I have $174 in my paypal account to use towards front speakers on ebay. All of the MMC5250 polks are literally $4 out of my price range...dammit!
