Yes, 6.5" in the doors. Or 6.75". I have Polk Audio MM6501's in the doors of my SS :-) and sound awesome !! And are very efficient 94db 1w/1m. Which means they play louder. Given the same input as others.

I've never had Alpine subs. For subs and amps I usually stick with Fosgate stuff. Not saying I wouldn't get them but that's just always what I've had.

They aren't. They were like that when I bought it. They still mount on it tho and stay. They DO come off somewhat, but are still attached by 1 spot, at the top, or suppose to be, that part was tore/broke and made them completely removable.

Need a pic of the back side of the grill, removed? Hold on. Oops !!! I was mistaken. They are suppose to be permanently mounted on top and bottom. My bad !! The pix are of the side tabs. Those parts are removable. Why they didn't just make the whole thing removable

See the piece there in the pic? , that part is tore/broken away from the door panel. Mine are NOT suppose to be removable. Not completely anyway. Just suppose to be able to fold up but still be attached at the top. Mine was broke on top. They aren't suppose to come completely off like the rear seat side panels do.

Back to the original question, I run Boston Acoustic Rally Series components in the front and Eclipse Point Source in the rear (mid/backseat, whatever) both powered by a Phoenix Gold 4 channel amp. All of my speakers are about 10 years old, but I absolutely love them. Phenominal quality under any volume. I also run a single 12" high excursion subwoofer for low end and the balance of sound I can recreate is absurd. I cannot recommend them enough.

I have a musician friend that asks to use my car after recording music so that he can see how the true quality sounds on a high end system.



After the ones I listed, I also support Polk so +1 on that recommendation (I know Ercmann loves them and he seems to really know his stuff as well). I have many Polk drivers in my home stereo setup and always been happy with them. Infinity is another great company for speakers.



EDIT: While on the topic of speakers... for anyone with a high end stereo (car or home) check out the Zac Brown Band cd Uncaged with a decent amount of volume. It's become my new go-to test CD for properly tuning a stereo. There is an extremely wide array of sound types/levels and the quality of recording and mastering is unreal.

I'm running focal Kevlar 3 way components in my doors and sail panel, with focal 4" components in the trunk area for rear filler. I run 2 jl audio 10w6's. I'm currently running a jl audio 1000/1 mono D block amp for the subs, and a phoenix gold 500/4 onyx series for the speakers. It is clear and loud. I tuned my stereo using a mix of music from Bach to NIN and everything In between
