Speaker Swap out suggestions?

I have the premium but looking to upgrade the factory door speakers..I will consider the rear as well but door panels first. Budget is up to $100, no other changes planned to shaker system.

Thanks!

ive been doing research on this as well.

ive read that the 3 way (and definitely 4 way) speakers are not necessarily better than a 2 way (coaxial) speaker. it draws more power to push all the speakers, and with our limited power from the factory amps that wouldnt be good.

the kenwood kfc-c6893ps are very cheap and are designed to fit in fords. some people like those.

other people like polk audio stuff (it used to be the **** back in the day) but they are more pricey, but not really any better anymore from what people say.

check out millionbuy.com. they have prices that u would get buying something that 'fell off the back of a truck'. its seriously ridiculous how cheap some stuff on that site it. so check there first, but then also amazon has good deals.

personally i plan to buy the infinity 6832cf's because they are very sensitive (good for low power amps, like ours) and infinity is known for their crisp highs. i plan to put my subs in the trunk soon though, so thats where i'll get my lows

its tough to decide how something will sound in our cars based on something someone says online. the bottom line though is that EVERYTHING will sound better than the stock speakers

I got 4 RF 3-ways for $135 shipped, but I have the base stang. If I had the premium trim, i'd get components for sure, especially with your budget.

I put the alpine type s 5x7s in my doors. They are good speaker for $100 at best buy. They sound pretty good with the factory system. For a little more get the type r and amp them and get some really good sound.

I just want speaker swap..i know adding amps and all can open up a can of worms!

That should answer most of your questions (ignore the old Mustang video - reference the component install).

I have infinity speakers in my other cars and I really like the way they sound. I am thinking about replacing the door speakers in my Pony as well and will look at Infinity speakers.

Have a look at Sonic Electronix - Car Audio Stereo - Car Subwoofers - Car Amplifiers and Speakers

I bought a pair of JBL GTO8628's from them for approx $75.

Very fast shipping, too.

Thanks, I went with this set from Sonic. I decided to swap out all 4 speakers. Will take some extra time but rather get it done right!

I was considering these.

Amazon.com: Clarion SRG5721C 5" X 7" Coaxial Speaker System: Electronics

I've never heard of anything bad from Clarion and I'm sure they're better than stock.
