6x9's are garbage, I'd recommend a 5 1/4" w/ 1.5" tweeter setup, in front, and a 6 1/2 coaxials in the rear. ( I rebuilt the rear deck with pulp board which is very resistant to vibrations, no rattle at all. Thats my setup. All Alpine speakers with a 4 channel 200w Orion amp. Any speakers are good these days, but good amps are hard to find. I am very pleased with my Orion amps, although some complain of overheating problems (i have yet to experience this) and as far as newer Orion amps I`m not sure. Haven`t been to a local dealer to see any new products. I`m happy with my setup from 2 yrs ago. Also, 2 - JL Audio W6's in the truck, 800w Orion Amp. But I recommend the components/ front and coaxials in the rear.

Everyone's input is appreciated, but no one told me what size(s) they're using (I'm already familiar with the brands you've listed ;) My goal is to not have to cut into the rear tray (if I can avoid it).

6x9? plate assembly? (I currently have a pair of Bostons - a plate assembly with a 5.25" mid and a separate tweeter (which they don't make anymore))

Thx again!
