    Default HELP --->Best Speakers for reasonable price

    I am lookin to buy some new speakers for my car, and get the old ones out. The ones that are in right now are 5 1/2, 6 1/2 xplods. I used to like the sound of them but after awhile I noticed that they were getting a little bit scratchy and fuzzed... So I checked my wireing and every thing was good.. To make a long story short, I now need some new car speakers that will handle alot of power and not take a chunk out of my wallet. I heard about Infinities and was wondering if they are any good as well..

    Will take everyones sugestions.
    Thanks

    How much can you spend? Infinity is about the best you can buy, unless you really want to spend big bucks.

    Stick with the infinitys out of those three, they will be the crispest, clearest sounding of the bunch.

    Do they have to be purchased from there? Have you considered buying online? For that amount, you can get some amazing speakers.

    If you do not want to buy online, i'd consider the last ones. They are crystal clear speakers but they lack the bass that you will probably want.

    Subs will give you the bass you need. I used to have those exact infinity's, and even when I amplified them, they dont give any decent bass at all.

    Personally... don't buy off of futureshop if you don't have to. Car audio is marked up so rediculously. Whats your budget? (Sorry, didn't even look at the links. Just... speakers from FS = Ugh) lay out a budget, I can do some hunting for you... but the best bet for you to do is go around to some local shops, listen to speakers... see which sounds best to YOU and then get 'em . If you think the store is rediculously priced... search on the internet you can usually find a hefty discount when you do that. But support the little guys if you can Their expertise is often worth the extra money you pay. Buying from futureshop is just raping you in every oriphice :P.

    Car audio anywhere is marked up, what makes you think futureshop is the only place that makes a profit? Check visions and soundsaround some day

    ^^not cool to advertise your business without paying dude

    i recommend going to see Jeff at autotemp in the NE. he'll kill any price futureshop/best buy/visions/soundsaround etc quotes you (and he has a clue what hes talking about unlike most of the big chain salespeople)

    Head over to Audio Concepts and talk to Jason. He'll be able to give you some great advice. I picked up a set of the Hertz speaker line for my rears and would recommend them. Good price too.

    Did I state anywhere that I said Futureshop was the only place? No. I felt that by saying "Car Audio is marked up so rediculously" it was a fairly general statement. How futureshop also gets you is their BS salesmen who, so far in shopping, I have never met one that had any knowledge greater than a 16 year old kid fresh with his civic and a pair of RF subs he paid way too much for. My buddies extended warantee on his amp proved pretty much useless as they decided to not even look at it for 5 minutes without charging him for an hour fee (I know most places should be better, but CS in Prince George is horrible)

    Also, buying off the internet should have tipped you off that indeed I am trying to find him a good deal. You can often find prices half of retail, but as I also said, buying from a knowedgeable local store is priceless as long as they actually know what they're talking about.

    I am looking at MTX thunders with tweeters for my front, and eclipse speakers for the rear, no subs or amp yet?

    what do you think?

    I was told they were pretty high end speakers.... but I dont find them too pricy...

    thanks!

    I dont particularly need a sub... I just want some base
