    6 1/2" subs?

    Does anyone know where I can get replacement 6 1/2" subs for the sail panels in my 02 Z??? I have found component sets, but I don't want or need the cross overs or the tweeters. The subs are blown, and I would like to get better quality units. I have the 12 disc changer, so a remote sub is not an option, plus I want to keep the car as original as possible... Does GM still offer replacements?

    In my '02 Hawk I put Sound Stream S.P.L. 6.5 subs their awsome, they have a quality of instead of having a 4 ohm. rating, the S.P.L.'s have "2 ohms.". That drops the impedence of your amp/head-unit resulting in better/louder sound, they're also VERY clear! Some don't like Sound Stream. But it's 'tride and trued' w/me!!! Every S.S. add is "all of the TRUE", you gotta have/hear it to believe their claims, as they are TRUE!! Enough of that, Kicker also makes a 6.5 sub.

    in my "above re-ply" I meant "ad" not "add". I have also installed some "Memphis speakers" in a 'friend's truck'. They really impressted me, the 2-ways sount as if they were "close" to "componets", as I have always preferred.

    You cant go wrong with any of these brands: Mb Quart, Infinity, Polk Audio. They make some nice sound quality speakers.

    I'm looking to get the infinity Kappa 62.7i speakers as replacements for my blown door speakers and from what I've read here and in some other places they seem to be a safe choice.

    My question is...I've seen them priced from $79 to $149. Anyone have an idea why there would be such a price difference? I've also seen tons on e-bay, most priced around $95 a pair including shipping, but I'm a little suspicious about where these might be coming from. I'd rather find them somewhere local and have them installed just in case I have any problems, but no one around here carries them.

    So...anyone have any experience purchasing speakers online for half the list price?

    Thanks

    Since you're going to keep the stock Monsoon Radio then i recommend a speaker with low rms power, possable matching the radio/amp watts.
