Wanting to install speakers, 95 mustang gt.

Hey guys! Long time since i've been here but its good to be back, and this time with a mustang of my own I might add We picked her up tuesday last week. 95 mustang gt 5.0 5 speed. Same age as me lol. Anyhow the front speakers are junked pretty bad. I was looking at new speakers and this speaker stuff makes my head spin just a litttle. I've been reading and starting to pick a thing or two up on all the technical terms but still lost lol. I don't think i have the mach sound system since it dosn't say it anywhere on the doors but I do know that they are 5x7/ 6x8 all the way around. I don't want to spend a lot on speakers considering I'm going to Purdue next year for college but I found a set of kickers on amazon that I liked and thought would be nice considering they were 3 way. Amazon.com: Kicker DS693 6"x9" 3-Way Speakers (Pair): Car Electronics only problem is they are 6x9s. I figured they would fit in the back with a little work but I doubted they would fit in the front. Has anyone fit something like this in their door? Any suggestions on speakers. I don't want to get to far away from the 50 dollar mark, thats the reason i'm on amazon, I can get it all a little cheaper. I've got a sony stereo for right now but I may switch to the kenwood I have from my old car before to long. Thanks for any help you guys can offer and like I said to start. Its good to be back!

Me? I would not do 6x9 or 6.5. I would do 6.5 if buying component speaker meaning seperate woofer and tweeter. I would go 6x8 all around. Check these out. I have shopped here before. Read the reviews

Thanks for the input marcus. I went ahead and got some plain jane 6x8s for the front and picked up the 6x9s yesterday. I guess i'll find out what it sounds like. Anything is better than what is in there right now though XD lol

Install was finished up last week. They sound pretty good. The back ones could probably sound better with a small amp but I don't have the money to deal with something like that at the time lol. As far as install went it wasn't to terrible, just time consuming. I had read about various people who would shave out metal to make them fit but I decided to go a different route. I put some spacers in to keep the lipped metal from hitting the speakers and drilled new holes. I dropped the bolts in from the top and bolted them up from the inside of the trunk. Next time it won't be so bad to deal with lol. I won't have to pull out that stupid decking
