Speakers for my ZJ 96

Hey whats up guys, i am new on this forum and it is amazing to me how much you all love Jeep and how knowledgeable you all are. So I just want some advice on something- speakers. I make minimum wage at a pizza place, i don't have loads of money im just looking for any recommendations on some affordable speakers. I have some subs and an amp..im just really clueless on all this car audio stuff.

I have JBL GTO628 in both on my ZJ's. They sound great. I think that BestBuy has them on sale right now.

I thought you were a pizza guy??
Anyway, you can always run some Infiniti kappa 2 way speakers. The two ways rival many more expensive setups and get much better when amplified. If you're fixed on not spending too much, just get a pair for the front and focus on installing the sub/ amp. I'd avoid the reference line personally but I have heard good things about them, especially from people who ran the component types with an amp.

I have kicker ds65 speakers all the way around
I think they were like $55-$65 for a pair of them off crutchfeild with adapter wire... things lmfao

My friends complement my system alot and it didn't break the bank either. It was about $550 with shipping and wiring for my amp (that does not include the among because I already had it)

I work at Wendys making barely over minimum wage (and I've been there for 2 years -__-) so I know your pain. So many plans, so little money lmfao

98' ZJ 4.0
4.5" short arm, 33" Courser MXTs, custom stubby bumper, skids, someother stuff

Speakers are sold in pairs, so if it's $60 the you need to spend that x2. BestBuy has them for $6 less and you can hear them before you buy.

X2 for polk i had the db651. They have really clear highs and mids. Too bad they blew when i put 100 watts to them. Keep them under 75 watts and you will be ok.

If you really want to go on the cheap, Walmart typically has a pair of Pioneer speakers for about $40. That is what I used when my originals blew out and I was short on cash. They sound pretty good hooked up directly to my aftermarket HU, and even better with the my amp and subs.

I recently bought a set of MB Quart PVI-216 components on Amazon. 2 mid woofers, 2 tweeters and 2 crossovers included in the kit and I paid about $125 including shipping. I have the tweeters mounted temporarily in the factory location and they seem a little to "bright" for my tastes. I'm going to mount them permanently in the doors along with the mids.

I only have disability income right now and it barely covers living expenses sometimes so I understand trying to do things on a tight budget. If you do a bit of searching online there are good deals to be found. I would also try to stay with one of the established brands and although they might cost a little more you'll probably hear the difference. There are lots of people here who can guide you along the way in making a decision.
