okay.... with $200 bucks most people would tell you alpine on this forum but i think they are absolute garbage. i would put in some jl audio speakers. they are probly the best big name speakers you can buy. i live in memphis so i hear them alot and they are damn good too but you would probly have to order those online in cali. and fyi after you replace your front speakers you will want to change your back ones too
I agree the jls you can get for $200 sound very good but i like my focals and they are the same price
The great thing about UDP jokes is no one cares if you get them or not.
With a stock hu you wont get the loudness and clarity you are looking for..just sticking in 4 new speakers wont do you much if anything at all other than not distorting as much at high volumes. I know you dont want a flashy deck or anything but thats the only way you are going to get descent sound out of your speakers unless you amp them.
And for the speakers i would recommend the Alpine type s's, from past experience as an audiophile i can tell you that they are very good sounding and can get very loud if amped properly, and they are only $55 per pair so all in all it would be $213 shipped which is very close to your budget with the speakers and the deck together. http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...roductID=18864
jl audio and infinity reference series are gonna be your best quality speaker for around $200.
running two tiny wires to the front left door really is not that hard. drop them down behind the radio, zip tie them to some other wire under the dash to keep it clean, use a long zip tie to feed them through the door.
