Unhappy '02 Audio help blown speaker

My front right lower speaker is blown and I am trying to figure out how to replace it. Everything is stock on it and when I looked online on what to do to replace it everyone says after market won't work but then usually all have a different head (I guess thats what you call it). As you can see I am not very audio wise. From what I gathered some have luck and can just swap out speakers aslong as it is on both sides (for balance?) and some have to have 8 ohm speakers for it to work right. I want to keep everything else stock but the blown speaker and/or the driver side speaker also. Here is the speakers I was looking at:

Amazon.com: Polk Audio DB651 6.5-Inch Coaxial Speakers (Pair, Silver): Car Electronics


Amazon.com: Pyle PL683BL 6-Inch x 8-Inch 360 Watt Three-Way Speakers: Electronics


Amazon.com: Pioneer TS-A6993R 6-Inch X 9-Inch, 460-Watt 5-Way Speakers: Electronics


These are the 8 ohm I found
Amazon.com: Pair of (2) Brand New Cadence Xm698 6x9" 500w Xenith Series 8-ohm Midrange Speakers: Electronics


Please tell me one of these will be a simple plug and play problem solved lol. I just put the first coat of sealer on my car and sanding it down one more time then primin it and getting ready for it's matte black and yellow paint job, can't ride around with a sound system with no bass. It sounds perfectly fine until I put bass on then the front right speaker just vibrates and turns to garbage.

Actually, all you need are 4omh, so that's kind of the average. And you have 6x8s.

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

So I won't have to do anything different? The people claiming they burnt their mach amp up by switching those speakers are just because they changed other things too or just an older model? So I don't have to have 8 ohm speakers? Will I have to disconnect the twitters on the new after market speakers or will they not affect anything?

Wait, so you have the Mach 460 system?

Get done alpine type r's. That's what I have for all 4 of my speakers and they sound amazing. And they have tweeters that you can point to where you want them to go.

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

So a basic 4 ohm speaker will work fine with a Mach 460 stock sound system? Just replacing both lower door speakers. Tweeters on the after market speakers wont have to be disconnected? I am buying one of the links I posted on the first and need to know whether to buy the 8 ohm or just regular 4, the 8 ohm have no tweeters and said they are for low to mid range sounds which sounds like a legit replacement. The company said they will work but I don't full heartedly trust a salesman.

They will work but will use half the power at 8ohms. For example 50 watts at 4ohms would be 25 watts at 8 ohms. Go with a 4ohm as that is what is used in there now

And yes, they're 6x8s, technically 5x7s fit, but well... Bigger is better in this case

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

Would it be better to do 6 and a half inch or 5 and a half inch circle shaped instead of oval shaped speakers or is it so minimal the sound difference to just stick with 6x8s?

Minimal. I would just go 6x8s, better fitment too. Oh, and I recommend Rockford fosgate Power 6x8s. Great brand and they sound amazing! Just go though amazon and you can get them for about $100 a pair.

And if you're replacing the fronts, I'd replace the rear too.

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

You answered my second question I was about to ask lol. Would those speakers work good with the Mach 460 amp? I won't have to disconnect the tweeters on the new speakers will I?

Nope, once you get in there you just wire them like the stock speakers were wired.

And I'm sure that if there was too much treble, you could cut the wires to the tweeters on the new speakers.

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

Will 6x9's fit? Or are they 5x7 space and 6x8's barely fit?

6x9 will not fit. The other sizes do because they way the brackets are designed

If you cut wires to tweeters that are integrated you will change the speakers impedance, this is not a good thing to do unless you compensate for it, best to just turn down the treble setting in our head unit

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

JVC double din head unit
4 Rockford 6x8's
2 alpine type e 12's
2 kenwood 720 watt 4 channel amps later....

I have everything setup and I will never buy another rockford fosgate product aslong as I live. They wouldn't work right when wired soley to the head unit so I purchased and installed a second amp to run them off of and come to find out 2 of the 4 speakers were faulty (one was actually broke as in the tweeter and wires were cracked apart and one was just messed up). I have everything fine now but I have a question again.

I am now just running vocals off the front two rockford speakers with a little bit of bass and it sounds plenty fine so instead of buying two more 6x8s I was gonna just run 2 stock tweeters in the back and run them off of the amp aswell that way I can filter the lows for those two tweeters with no problem.

They will get 60 rms each tweeter will this be a problem? What is the ohm impedance (spell check?) of the stock tweeters, cause aren't the ohm of the stock mach speakers combined with tweeters 4 ohm? If so would that make the tweeter by itself 8 ohm?

Any tips on how to go about installing this?

Re: '02 Audio help blown speaker

I need advice on how to make my trunk not rattle as much now. Is there something I can do, I already tightened everything down but it vibrates my spoiler so bad it rattles.

Will it help make it sound deeper or clearer?
