My suggestion, since sound is such a personal thing. Go to a store like Best Buy, Circuit City, or any other large chains in your area that has an auto audio section. Listen to the various speakers side by side. See which sounds better to YOU. Make your decision based on that.

I like my alpine type-s 5x7s. I have had them with and without and amp and they sound a LOT better with one.

If you are talking about the 6x8 size boston speakers, dont get them. I really like Boston speakers but the 6x8 just sound like crap for some reason. I have the pioneer three ways and I am happy with them. They are not great but for the price they are awesome.

That's the same setup I have in my truck. I've got comps in the front doors and just the regular 2 way reference in back. Love them. I don't often make them "bump" though. Just when I want to teach some smart a$$ that his POS stock setup isn't as loud as he thinks it is. It's even better when they realize they've been shown up by some white haired old fart.

Yes they do! I went to best buy today and heard a few of them they sound great. I think i am going to go with those when i get the money for them. But for now, i am looking to get my 4x4 fixed before the snow falls or im going to be stuck going up a hill that leads to my house haha
