Look for the highest sensitivity rating on them if you are planning on keeping the stock HU and not adding amps. You will get the most out of the power you feed them. Either way it's good to look for high sensitivity. With that said I have ran kicker, infinity, memphis car audio, and alpines and they all have a different sound. You can listen to them in the store and see what you like but they are going to sound a little different in a vehicle than they do on the wall. Try to find some friends and listen to theirs.

Check out the Focal 165VB set. Crossover is small so you can fit it anywhere inside the door. Sensitivity is VERY high and they are a great sounding set. I owned a pair for a very long time. Kinda sad I sold them.

Long story short, email www.sonicelectronix.com and ask them to price match Crutchfield who has them for $299 shipped, with install gear. They'll beat the price by a certain percentage. You should come out ahead in the long run.

If I had to tell you one brand I would go with the infinty's. They have always had a crisp sound to me. Alot of people will say polk audio but i've never heard them. It's just hard to say what will sound "good" with the stock HU and amp. Any of them will become unclear or muddy at high volumes if they don't have enough power to them.

so what I'm hearing is because I want to keep the stock HU I need to get an amp to power the speakers so it'll sound better is it possible to get an amp and speakers for 250-300 or am I just wishing?

It's possible but I would put money into some great speakers rather than skimp on them just so you can get an amp. You can always run them with the stock HU then go back and add an amp later. I would recommend an active line out converter to get the signal from the HU to the amp though. I put one on mine and it's made a huge difference in sound quality. Long story short it would be hard to get speakers, an amp, and a good LOC for $300. I'd buy good speakers first.
