    couple of 10 or 12 inch wo jl audio subs would do you good jl components as well if you can afford them is always nice
    other than that
    sony- blows for subs

    jensen- licks nuts too

    jbl- havent heard much ?

    clarion- suposed to have decent subs and good component speakers

    pioneer- loud subs (not much for sound quality) dont know about components

    kenwood- shitty subs i hear good components possibly ?

    rockford-suposed to be good all around

    phoenix gold -very good but very expensive

    Kicker- mostly good

    i could go on but i think you should just go to a store and compare for yourself which sounds better to you (not the salesmen)

    for good treble look into a pair of neodynium (sp?) tweeters

    i dont want somethign that necessarily hits hard..I want clarity..im goign with 8 inch subs mainly because I also dont want to add a pile of weight to my car..im not lookign for 200 dollar speakers here guys I'm goign to spend quite a bit..this might soudn kind of lame but I always judge the quality of the system by how it sounds when you open the vehicles door(s) and stand 20 ft away. I had a full soundstream system in my nissan hardbody when I was 17 and you could crank the volume open the doors of the vehicle and the sound was so crisp and hit so nicely it was almost as if you were listenign to a huge home entertainment system...

    Is this System for the MR2? If so , 8's are your best bet, have you seen the Custom Boxes for the 2nd gen on the MR2 website, fit Perfect behind the Seat, with room to still put the t-tops, they come with JL's, check it out.

    BTW, if you get 2 8" JL's, or any subs for that matter, It is gonna be Insanely LOUD in your car, I love how the stereo sounds in my car, so clean and crisp, and I havnt even upgraded the Factory Speakers, just added 1 10" Pioneer IMPP behind the Passenger seat.

    Yeah, just upgrade your factory's to MBquart and get the 2, 8" JL's, you'll be happy with that for sure.

    Im a stereo fanatic!! Hands down MB Quart have the most crisp sound you'll hear without spending a billion dollars. As for subs, Ive had 8's <didnt like them> I have 10's now. <they're ok> But overall 2 12's would be the best overall setup. As for the sub, I ran a 12 inch Boston Acoustics Competitor Series sub. So far I havent heard anything too much better. The only sub that sounded alot better <had huge punch with very little reverb> was a Focal 13 inch. They also cost $1000+ dollars. and only come in metric. 13 inch is the sub size. They're made in France. Check out Audio Concepts to hear them. They rock. And just remember, speakers are going to be nothing without a good stereo amp for the high end, and a mono block for the subs.
