The "crappy" paper cone speakers are vastly better at reproducing midrange detail then poly cones. The problem is that paper is just not strong enough oz for oz to make a good subwoofer. Factory systems rarely use more than one crossover point so you are stuck with a tweeter and a single driver to cover the rest of the spectrum. Paper means nice clear mids at the expense of the bump everyone wants.

The monsoon in my 99 regal actually sounds great but does not have enough volume for my taste. My first thought for an upgrade is a single 12" or pair of 10" subs and build passive crossovers for the factory speakers to cut the frequency somewhere around 100Hz.

If you primarily listen to rap or top 40 music, that midrange detail wont matter a lick.

I listen to country and classic rock mainly. My poly cones have a brilliant mid and high range. It'* so crisp, clear, and loud (if I want it loud) that your ear will bleed.

Well its just like food, i cant tell you what you want for dinner.

Another big factor is getting what you pay for. Standard GM paper speakers are garbage. $40 walmart poly speakers also sound like garbage.

The tone from the monsoon system in the regal i just picked up suits me. It just needs a little modification to make it louder.

Well, my stuff was all blown when I bought the car. I didnt put garbage in the car though. Kenwood execeleon components up front, Kenwood 2-ways in the rear doors, and Kenwood 3-ways in the rear deck. All have an amazing frequency response and power handling. I'm also running them amped.
