Im using the cheapest/highest rated 5.25" i could find on amazon. That turns out to be some pyles for $20 shipped. They had about 350 reviews, with an average of 4 stars (out of 5).
Anything will sound better than what i had. The pass. side speaker was dead, and the driver side was starting to blow at higher volumes.
In theory (and its probably the case or else my cheap *** would not have bought them) the 5.25" speakers should sound a lot better than a 4x6 (what normally goes in the dash) for two reasons.
1) Manufacturers make more speakers in the 5.25" size than they do the 4x6, so much better selection of speakers.
2) oblong shapes dont recreate sounds as well as round.
Im just waiting on my new bezel/adapter so i can finish the CD player install. Right now its sitting in this big hole with zip ties holding it from sliding forward and out to the floor lol.
