Search on here for component speakers, and most of the choice is going to come from what you want to spend. If you're looking for great quality, you'll need to spend a decent amount and get a decent amp to power them.

i love my MB Quartz... not sure the model number (box is back home) but its the component and tweeter. Even with the 2 12s right behind my head and the 3 way RF speakers in the back, i can still hear all the highs and such, plus the sound quality is beyond awsome

who are you talking to?

If me, check my profile...Alpine amp, but I only have the coax speakers, plan on getting a set of 6.5" Premium Comps soon!, and will need a new amp unless I bridge my current one.

Jbl has some nice ones, you arnt gonna find components in 5x7/6x8 usually so are you going to make 6.5 fit or go to 5 1/4?

most of the components i listed use at least 100rms per side

JBL GTi Components or Kicker SS Components

And if you can find them, some PG Ti Elite Components

Any of those powered by the Soundstream Human Reign amp will rock.
