4" Speakers

Alright so, the 4 inch speakers that came with my Camaro in the hatch area of the car have officially rotted away. So the process of finding new ones begins. Just trying to get an idea of what are some good aftermarket replacements for them. I've heard that 3 way speakers are the way to go, but I have no idea what price they are. I would hope to spend $40 or less per speaker, or $80 or less total. I'm up for listening to anyone who has had success with replacements for their own car. Factory stereo. Yes, the storm that is the Monsoon is still in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Zac

Pepboys has a decent selection. I'd look for a stock replacement. The pioneer 4" don't handle well.

From what I was told at Best Buy when I went to replace all my speakers is that 3 way speakers are more bass heavy.
I'm assuming that the Firebird and Camaro hatch sizes are the same, so from what the installers at Best Buy told me is that 4" were the biggest you could go in the hatch. Anything bigger is too deep. With that said, there were only 2-way 4"s at Best Buy, so that's what I went with. This is what I have in my car:
1 Pioneer deck: DEH-1200mp
2 6-1/2" Speakers- TS-A1673R (3-way speakers)
2 4" Speakers- TS-G1043R
Stock Subs.

Not really sure how much better these are compared to stock since the stock speakers I had were shitty. The factory CD player was skipping every time I hit a bump and scratched my CDs. My friend said his Grand Am GT did the same thing, so I went to buy a new deck. They had a special that if you buy the same name brand of deck, speakers, and installation, you would get $100 off. So I spent $300 including installation. Next I want to get new subs, since right now the stock subs sound like absolute shit on most of my songs and the mid and high range hit harder than the low. Other than that, they sound great without bass. When I turn the bass up, the panels start to rattle.

Not really sure if it had anything to do with it, but my friend bought rockford 6x9s, or somthing like that, and they were 3-way speakers. He was told to not play his music loud for a few weeks so the speakers would break in. I wasn't aware of this, so I never really took it too softly on my speakers. Not sure if that's why the bass doesn't sound too great, or if it is really just because of the stock subwoofers. Whenever we roll in his car with only the rockford speakers, his car's bass seems to hit way harder than mine when he turns it up all the way and I leave mine at neutral. He also has a GTP with the stock sound system and 2 12inches. With the bass turned all the way down, it still bumps harder than mine at neutral. I tend to leave the bass level on neutral since it doesn't sound like absolute shit, and it bumps decently. It might also be just because I listen to my iPod through the sound jacks.

Kee Audio has replacements that work well with the Monsoon shit.

The speakers in the far back of the car (near the t-top holders) do very little for sound though. I would probably just disconnect them until you can get something better.

Can't go wrong with kicker or rockford fosgate, I'm sure they make 4" ones and if you go best buy get the extended warranty and for 2-4 yes you can always take em back blown for a new set which is usually a new model for free, so for the extra 20$ it'll be it's way worth it I've been doing it for years on all my car audio, decks,subs,amps,speaks etc

And if you google it you can find a 10% off coupon and get the warranty almost free with what you save or tax however you wanna look at it

Not trying to thread jack but I was thinking the rear speakers in the monsoon are the only ones not going through the monsoon amp. Just wondering why not get 6x9's to fit in the rear of the car and get an amp to power them? This would make the rear speakers functional would this work?

Anything's possible with time and money. The reason I didn't go with 6x9s is that they're too deep. If you're doing this yourself, you'd have to cut out parts of the interior and body to keep the stock look. If you go to best buy, you'd have to pay extra for the custom work.
I thought all of the speakers were powered by one 500w (I think that's what it was) amp.

Kenwood KFC-1062S 4" 3-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com

What about these, eh? They look pretty good to me, and it says they fit.

Only thing I don't like about the look of them is the cloth surround.
