    Hey guys!

    I am in the market for some new speakers for my truck. I use my truck for work so I don't have space for a sub/box. I am looking into getting new components for the front and coaxials for the rear. I am just sick of not being able to crank my stereo with my new head unit since it has more power. I go above volume 10 and shit starts crackling and sounding distorted. I am on a budget here and cant be spening money on some MB Quartz like I use to have in my old car. Any suggestions on a speaker setup that would sound really nice for all types of music? Something that won't distort when listening to it a tad louder than volume level 10? :D

    Thanks for you help guys!

    The ID's are great speakers. Rob from tacotunes is awesome. He'll help you out as best as he can. Personally when I chose a speaker or component, the things I look for are RMS watts and sensitivity. The higher the sensitivity dB the louder it will be at low volumes. IMO:D

    Elemental Designs has some great stuff as well. I am running two sets of their 6.5" components and they sound great! The price was affordable as well.
