Replaced base door speakers

Bought some kicker 6x8 two way car speakers. Installed them earlier, not very hard. Difficulty was maybe a 3 out of 10. Have to admit I'm not that impressed. I know a new head unit and amp is needed to push them to their potential but I was expecting more. Everyone said it was a night and day difference in sound from stock to after market speakers. Sound the same to me. I know you get what you pay for so maybe that's part of it. Also I think my taste is more than what I want to pay for. I will probably never change out the head unit, cost is too much. Maybe I'll wire up a amp to the door speakers at a later time. I honestly think the best addition I made to the car stereo was the 10" sub and amp in the trunk.

surprised....if they have a stiff surround (flexy part between frame & cone) it takes time to break in.

I shall see, I'm not sending them back. Too lazy for that, besides eventually I'll wire a small amp to them.

After being "broken in", they still sound the same. Not impressed.

I installed Alpine SR68 speakers. There was a very noticeable difference over stock. They ran a bit over $100. I have an amp driving the rear speakers that I installed at the time I installed my subs and its amp. There isn't a big noticeable difference between the front and the rear, sound wise. They don't need huge power to run them any ways.

Kicker cs speakers sound great with the proper amp on them. I've ran them in several cars for customers and with the correct amp they are crystal clear and sound great. Don't expect bass from these because they will not give you that. They can be a fantastic addition to any audio system if properly powered.

I disconnected my sub the other day so I could give them a good listen and they sound pretty good by themselves. I wouldn't say they made a huge difference but they have more bass than the stock ones for sure. I suppose they were worth the $50 after all.

Alone there mediocre but if you put an amp to them they sound a lot better and will be a lot louder.

Probably a little less efficient than most other aftermarkets. The Pioneer TS-A variants are all about 91dB/W. They make noise!

Not every speaker will automatically sound better. You have to choose carefully depending on how you plan to run them. You'll want a lower wattage, higher efficiency speaker if you don't plan on amping them.
Each brand also tends to have different sound characteristics, so there's that.

Righ before I traded in my car I added a pioneer head unit and it really made the kickers I installed in the door sound 10x's better. I don't think I'll be changing the speakers out in my new car anytime soon. I'm pretty happy with the sound from the shaker 500 system.
