Factory Audiophile in the doors and in the rear quarters with a JL Audio 10W1V2 in the factory box, sounds awesome. I have to add, that me and a friend of mine had a car audio business years ago, and i would be hard pressed to find a better sound than the Audiophile that the factory had in this car. You can add alot better speakers and amps and a head unit, but as far as the stock Audiophile goes, its hard to beat and as an added bonus, its very lightweight.

I've got Alpine Type-R 5"x7" in the doors (f & r) and currently no subwoofer, although in a week or so, I will have an 8" Ascedent Audio Assassin in a sealed box providing a little low end thump. The sub can be found here.

Oz Audio Matrix Elite 180CS (amplified)
6.5" + 1" components in sealed doors and a-pillars


and


How-To Installs in the FAQ

Don't do components unless you plan to run an amplifier.
If you're only using the HU power, then stick with 5x7 or 6x8 stock-sized speakers.

I also don't have rear speakers. You could keep the stock rears or a 5x7 upgrade and only play them at a very low level to add ambience and rear fill off of the head unit.

Stock Audiophile speakers, with a Kicker CV-R 8" sub in the Audiophile box, Kicker 100W (rated at 127W) AMP under Pass side seat. Sounds GREAT.

I want to upgrade the speakers, but the stockers are good for now [thumb]

5x7 Sony Xplod's all around, stock 8" sub + 2-12" subs w/tweeters on a Kenwood 640W amp

everything sounds nice but I'll eventually be upgrading the aux subs and adding tweeters in the front.

I do. I have Pioneer TSD681R's up front and they fit fine, until I put the windows down. Scratched the crap out of my tint.

I am gonna get the Poineer 6X8's in my car when I get more money......I would get the newer version of these, the TS A-6871'R's, but it is $20-30 more a pair more for practically the same thing.....I'll save my money and get the TS A-6870's for $59.99 a pair at Wal-Mart.

anyone think I should get the newer ones?

Only in the back, but I have a sedan, so the speakers are in the rear doors...I just need to make a spacer for them and they should be fine.
