    Default Speakers for my pickup truck

    Hey all,
    I've been to other forums like CarAudioForum.com, and they just slam anyone who's looking for general advice. Not very friendly to say the least..
    I just bought a pickup truck and I have the KDC-BT952HD from Kenwood installed.
    I want to buy the best 5.25 component speakers that will fit in my truck.
    Doing a search for 'best component speakers' is fruitless. Everyone toots their own horn.

    Is Polk the way to go? I have a pickup truck, so I know I can't expect too much. I just want the best bang for my buck. What's the speaker model I want here? I wouldn't mind installing an amp if it makes a difference.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Dan

    I've got some Brand New In Box SR5250's if you are interested in them and they're in your budget. You can find them here: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...38-Bnib-sr5250

    I used a pair in my Camaro for about 2 years and they are stellar speakers. I'm just not into car audio as much as I used to be, hence these need to find a new home.

    Amp will make a world of difference.

    What's your budget? You are right, everyone toots their own horn but first "filter" if you will is always price since it's an exact number, not an opinion lol. Having a budget will greatly help define "best component speakers" for YOU.

    and yes, SR5250 are GREAT speakers.

    My budget is very flexible. If the best sounding speaker sounds good to me, I'll pay the cost.
    My issue is that I only have a pickup truck. I won't have any rear speakers to figure into the equation.
    I don't want to over spend on something that won't make a difference.
    I briefly checked out the SR5250 last night and I'm intrigued. Where can I hear these?

    Thanks all.

    it will be hard to hear these, you are going to need to find someone in ur area that has them and get in their car :)

    No - they dont make them anymore, and its not because they arent good.

    You mention that you wont have rear speakers - good - you dont want any, it is better for sound quality to NOT have rear speakers.

    What kind of set ups have u had in ur vehicle before?

    Nope. The 5250's are somewhat overshadowed by the 6500's, but they are superb speakers in their own rights. A pair might be hard to find now that mine sold, but you should at least have them on your list IMO.
