Default Looking at current 6.5 speaker options

I have been looking at 6.5 component speakers. I was looking to see what you recommend. I want something more budget friendly that sounds good. I have had diamond in the past. My friend said diamond is not the same quality as in the past. Let me know what you think.I plan to add a sub to the system later. I'm mainly looking for clarity.

speakers are one of those things you've gotta go into the store to hear for yourself because different ppl will hear different tones and qualities of the same speaker

wish i could give some suggestions but i haven't kept up with what companies have good quality still.. my front components are 15+ yr old mb quartz q series as a reference

Focal has a great reputation, I used the Polk db components in another vehicle and I loved them. The key behind door speakers is door prep, check out car audio fabrication on YouTube, Mark has all the info you will need to get a great sounding setup.

I am running the ~$200 retail Infinitys, very similar to the same price JBL GTO (and the two companies share the same parent). I thought cheaper options (Polk, Pio, Alpine) were pretty shoddy for anyone used to real hifi. The Infinity speakers are a good match for the car, you need to start doing sound deadening before going to really expensive stuff imo.

As far as I'm concerned, $100 or $400 for a set of separates, put into a Japanese econobox, especially a Subaru.... All sound equal.
