Default Help Choosing Replacement Door Speakers

Both of my door speakers have blown. I know there are better options out there but I've short-listed my replacements to these 2 options as I want to do the minimal amount of modifications to the door/basket:

- Infinity Reference 6032cf $56.48
- Polk Audio DB651 (and DB651s) $63.75

I think there is less work to install the Infiniti speakers whereas there are some slight modifications to fit in the Polk Audio (not sure about the slim mount version).

Based on the poll results (3-0 as of today), I ordered the Infinity Reference 6032cf today from Amazon for $45.75. They are backordered. But for that price, I can wait a few days.

The Kappas look nice. You might need to make a minor modification.

Just got a set of the 6032cf off amazon and got one hooked up today.

Anyone getting these needs to know they do NOT come with ANY hardware except the foam padding and mounting bracket. You will need 8 more small screws and I am not sure why infinity would neglect this.. Ohh well bad review for them on the zon.

I am now wondering if 60w RMS is too much for the stock amp under the seat. Anyone else feel the need to upgrade after these?

I just ordered the Kappa 63.9i for both doors and the 693.9i 6x9s for the rear. Total price was about $200.00 from Amazon, they should be in next week. I've always been partial to Eclipse (in my high school days anyways) but seeing as they're no longer around (at least in the same form that they used to be) I decided to go with the Infinities.

Have any of you guys been able to find replacements for the dash 2.5" speakers? One of mine is blown and the other one isn't too far behind. I have found them listed on various mitsubishi OEM parts web sites but I am skeptical as to whether or not they actually have them in stock as I have read that these speakers are very hard to find and/or do not exist anymore. I guess I will find out soon enough as I placed an order for two of them on discountmitsubishiparts.com just to see what happens. In the mean time I simply disconnected the dash speakers so they don't make the whole system sound like hell.

Here’s a pic of the Infinity 63.7i 3-ways I installed in my 98 model. I don’t remember all the details but I don’t remember it requiring a lot of mods. I did have to space the stock grill out a little to provide clearance for the tweeter/mid stack. I them trimmed it with some black tubing readily available from Lowes (visible around the edge of the grill).

Nice. Thanks for the pics. Do you have the factory HU still? If so, how do your new speakers sound with it? I have heard people say aftermarket speakers can be too 'soft' and aren't very loud when driven off the factory HU.

Also, I noticed that after I disconnected the dash tweeters, the door speakers do not put out hardly any treble at all. Is this b/c there is a built in crossover on the factory door speakers? Or is it crossed over at the HU? It also could be just that my door speakers are worn out.

Stock system, no issues with the door speakers, or dash, which I have also replaced with Infinity's. I'm pretty sure my rears could use replacement due to the shear age, but they still sound great and don't rattle. My 3000 only has a little over 21K miles and has been kept sheltered (98 SL model). I realize that has little to do with the surrounds rotting tho...
