    hey all. im sure this has been discussed a million times. Unfortunately i don't have a taco anymore but i want to upgrade the system in my current car. there are 6 1/2s on both front doors and in the rear and 2 tweeters up front as well. i have a stock monsoon deck. I would like to replace the deck a little later but want to know what are the best speakers out there that have good bass and quality? I will have an amp hooked up to them as well. I want dont really want to spend a ton of money on them.... lets say under $700 (including head unit)


    hope someone can help! im good at installing but suck at choosing the best ones. best buy sux because you are blasting out into a huge room. does not give a good example of what im buying.

    im not familar with the hyundai but i know some monsoon systems run 2 ohm speakers, so if you only replace the speakers, you lose volume, and bass output. an external amp would help, but is that crunch really 900 watts, or is it closer to 300. not dogging your components but you dont want to blow out your now speakers.

    looks good for components but let your ears be the judge. go to local stereo shops and listen to what sounds good within your budget. always spend the most you can afford on your front speakers.

    will do. i was browsing on online car stereo and saw that i can fit a 6.5" kicker sub in one of the doors. From what i understand, the santa fe has a mid range and a sub in the doors with the tweeters at dash level on the doors. if i put this sub and try to find a good mid range would this be a good set up or should i just go plain speakers all the way?
