Re: my 6' speakers, what to do?
I agree with Kingy, with the amp on the way, go a good set of splits up front, and with a sub on the way, save a few bucks and get a good set of 6" in the back rather than 6x9's. Rear speakers are generally a courtesy for rear passengers so they can hear the top end of the music, and 6" generally produce better top end than 6x9's. 6x9's have better bass, but with a subby it makes it insignificant. The factory Pioneer rear speakers are slightly better than the front ones, but they are made of a paper cone and are no where near as good as after market speakers. In terms of changing the front speakers, it isn't too hard, but a set of Safety Torx sockets is required. An installation mob would change it, for what price I dunno, I did mine myself. I reccommend purchasing the amp, subby and splits all together that way you can get componants that will be satisfactorally matched to each other within your budget. I'm now onto my second car stereo, so I hope this helps a little.
