Hi,
I was wondering if someone could get me some pointers on some nice speakers. Some people recommended just front speakers and an amp, but I drive people around, and I like to have "surround" sound, so I just want all four speakers changed and most likely no amp. Any advice on what speakers I should get. I was looking at these:

For the Front: http://www.cardomain.com/item/PIOTSA1780R

For the Back: http://www.cardomain.com/item/PIOTSD170R

Are there any problems with these speakers fitting right into my car?

Those speakers aren't very good, they're better than stock, but they still won't perform all that well. Of course there isn't much out there that will perform well for so cheap, is that the most you're willing to spend or did you just stumble across them and think they might do the trick? If you can spend a bit more you could go with something like the CDT cl-61a in the front and some cdt coaxs in the rear, they should perform pretty well on headunit power.

RF's are not that good now (atleast what i heard) they used to make good speakers. I was thinking about going for the Pioneer REV TS-D170R all around. If any one has other good suggestion for 200 non-component speakers, share it, cause i want to get some good speakers.

If you just get those midbasses for the rear, make sure you're powering them with something that can lowpass them, preferably below 500hz. I would definitely go with the midbass in the rear as opposed to the coaxs, I HATE the sound of full range speakers in the rear, so distracting and detrimental. At least with midbasses you'll get the added punch in the midbass region, without the vocals and treble coming from the rear and screwing everything up.

with a nice headunit you can, but not without spending $300+ on one. I forgot that you aren't going to amp these so you probably won't be able to lowpass the rears....hopefully their inductance will create a natural lowpass that's low enough to work well, I doubt it though, it will probably be up in the 4k range which is way too high to filter out voices. It would still be better than coaxs though

OK, I got another problem. My dad doesn't want to install componets in the car because he doesn't want to cut anything for the tweeters or have them stick out too much. So i either have to find a good way of installing them, or get full-range speakers. If I were to get full-range speakers, I wass looking at MB Quart, how do those rate?
