    I am having a hard time choosing front speakers. The plan is to do this all in steps starting with noico in the doors and Component Speakers(going to run them off the stock head unit for now). Then passive maybe DSP and amp planning on keeping stock head unit.

    I've narrowed it down to these speakers: Leaning towards the JBL, but they are 2ohm?
    What would you do? (2020 Tacoma TRDOR non-JBL HU)

    JBL Club 605CSQ

    Bonus question: Fast rings yay or nay?

    You have a good plan and I would definitely go with the fast rings. It's cheap and does make a difference

    I am not a fan of JL's C1 and C2 lines. The C3s sound good, but they are much more money. I had the C2s a few years ago and was never satisfied with them. I think you can do better for the same amount of money. I have the Sony ES 6.5 components and they sound much better than the price suggests (they were 299 when I got them, but now 399), but I also have a 5 channel amp running everything so they may not sound as good off just the head unit.

    It would be down to the JBL and RFs for me. I have not heard those specific speakers so it would be a toss up. Good news is if you buy from Crutchfield you can return them and order different ones if you don't like them. Looking at reviews it seems like the RFs have a little better mid bass. They all have high sensitivity ratings so they should improve the sound from the stock speakers without losing volume. The RFs have a more adjustable crossover so you can tame the tweeter if it is too bright and it also has a setting for running them off axis if you are going to use the stock location.
