    I don't want to sound like your mother, but if you've blown your speakers you might be blowing your ears while you're at it. I've been a music lover for as long as I can remember and used to fall asleep cranking Master of Puppets and South Of Heaven through some pretty rad headphones when I was a teenager. Now my ears ring constantly and it gets worse every year. It's enough to drive a man insane. But like me, you probably already know the risks and blast it anyway. I can assure you one thing though, if you end up like me you'll wish like hell you didn't.

    I suggest you get a decible meter from radioshack and check out one of those hearing damage charts so you can see what kind of level you can listen to safely and for how many minutes. It's fun to crank it, and if you know you can handle a level for 15 minutes and then you give it a rest you can still satisfy most of your cravings. The big problem is I used to start out loud, then get louder as my ears fatigued. Before you know it, you are cranking decibles that cause permanent hearing damage in 5 mins for the next hour. Now I keep it at a level that won't cause damage, then crank it up for maybe one song to a level I know is safe for 10 minutes (which is still pretty loud) and then back it right off for awhile. Still get my kicks, but hopefully not making matters worse. You only have one set of ears and damage is irreversible and particularly disappointing for people who love loud music.

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    $100 is all you want to spend on (2) pairs of 6.5's? I would take that $100, get some components for the front, run it with the stock deck for now and when you get more funds...add rear fill and a amp to all 4 speakers.
