In the process of purchasing a system to replace HI-Fi

Fronts^

and some JBLGTO638's in the back? or another 5.25
I like the front option, based on everything Ive heard from customers, but the rear replacement I'm having a hard time being confident about.
Head unit will be purchased the day I install.
Any thoughts from the masses?

Reusing the factory amp? Take your time and research it. You might find the factory amp is also doing all the processing/crossover network so the factory wires out to the speakers are only carry certain frequencies (not full range signals). Are you replacing an HK system or the standard one?

It feels like I've plateau'd if you will, in my researching.
I'm replacing the non HK speakers
6.5 fronts, 5.25 rears correct?
I have an amp I'm lined to purchased next paycheck.

Budget is pretty crucial here. Any idea what you're willing to spend? Also, are you using it for movies, music, or both? And the room size too

I'm not sure what I'm considering my price cap.
I'm doing it piece by piece, adding a new part per paycheck.
Financial budgeting over here, don't mind me.
So I was probably going to get the fronts and rears. That being said I like the price of the polks I linked earlier in the thread. 6501
As for room? As in trunk space or door clearance?

These ones, not the ones above mistaken.
