Default Speaker Brand Advice

I have a 2001 F250 P/U and would like to upgrade the door speakers. I plan to power them with an old ADS 40w a side amp, not a power house amp but I think adequate for my needs and current bank account balance. I have been out of the audio scene for a long time and I am seeking advice on what others like as far as replacements. I do not mind custom fitting if necessary. I will be using these upgrades in conjunction with a set of A-40 Baz. tubes. Any advice on brands, sizes, wiring or other add-ons I may not know about would be appreciated..

Thanks much

Tom

Tom, you can never go wrong with a pair of the 5 1/4" RX Components in the Bazooka online store. The EL coaxial's are also a great upgrade.

this is a bazooka forum so most would recommend bazooka. for me from what speakers I have heard (not that I'm an expert or lisented to all out there) I like JBL's. just the detail they have esp for instruments such as hearing every note a guitar string makes or a sax sounding like its the real thing playing in your car. had those in my dads tacoma off the factory head unit. the midbass was tight but dident play very low. I've heard other brands like JL,alpine,kicker in other cars and was not impressed... the bazookas are probly good to but i personally have not heard them. I just got a set of Hifonics speakers for my current car... ok but not impressed really (and I think I have a defective set right now) I perfered the JBL's sound better though some people call there sound bright.

I've installed many different brands of equipment in the last 20+ years. I can say I've been impressed with the results from the EL coaxials as well as the RX components. I wasn't expecting the response from the the coaxials to be as clean and precise as they were. I never experienced a failure from them, personally. Actually, I don't recall ever answering a post concerning a failure with the EL coaxials.

You can never go wrong with a product that has the Bazooka name on it. Keep in mind that Bazooka has been very successful for over 25 years for a reason; their products work and they work well.

If you can find a set of the old Euphonic R series component sets (400R, 525R, 650R), you'll have some of the best ever made, at any price. I've got some EL's in both of my cars and my garage stereo system. They sound good to me, and they're holding up just fine.

Isn't that the truth Gearhead! The Euphonic's set the benchmark for all other components. The Revolver Tweeter was out of this world. Classic Bazooka, listen to your ears.

I've got one set of each (400R, 525R, 650R) brand new, unused, still in the box. Just haven't gotten around to installing them in any of my vehicles yet. Hopefully at least one car (the one with an MA460 already installed) will get them this summer, along with the 250w class D tube.
