best 6x9 speaker setup?

I am not into the high performance car audio thing. Am wanting to set up the Cuda with a great head unit and some nice 6x9's. I have purchased an Alpine 9835. What is a good 6x9 speaker setup to go with? I dont plan to add an external amp. A friend recommended Infinity 2 or 3-ways. Any opinions? The car is a factoiry three speaker dash and I have some 4" Eclipse for the front

what is your goal? do you just want sound. or do you want decent sound? that HU is only pushing 40-50 watts per channel right? if so you dont need some top of the line 6x9's. if you are looking for a good sound stage. and some awesome sounding tunes, you might want to reconcider not getting an amp. you could get a decent 4 channel amp that would fit under the driver or passenger seat, or somewhere else you could hide it if you didn't want it to be visible. it would drastically improve the sound quality inside the cabin...just my .02

JL Audio TR690.
Alpine SPS690.
Both will work well on deck power. There are better sounding speakers but you really need more power to drive them.

I personally have a thing for the MB Quarts. I have two sets in my '02. They are amped and sound perfect. They sell a Q-line, Premium, Reference, and a Discuss line. For a good sound go with the Reference series. They are not as pricey as the other lines and still sound great. They are componets (two piece speakers) but can be combined.

Here is there link: http://www.mbquart.com/2003/en_US/home/

You can find them fairly cheap on Ebay otherwise crutchfield.com

Here is the company I bought mine from: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/

Good luck

Johnny

EW do you have a store or a website we could check out your stuff? It would be cool to find a local dealer.

Alpines that EW recommended are well worth the money. I have a set in the torino with an older alpine deck, and they sound good. (heard better, but I dont want to spend that kinda cash)

so a good choice for a non amped system is the JL Audio TR690 or the Alpine SPS690? I will check them out. Would these do well if I decided to put a mild amp in?


EastsideTorino - that picture of your car brings back memories; my brother had a yellow 70' Torino GT with shaker hood scoop. I forget who made them but he had a pair of 6x9's in the back installed. Each had its own attached amplifier and had a controller that was under dash mounted. Very simple, had a boost position and bypass position and sounded pretty good to my teen-age ears then.

Do you know the model number? The entry level product might be "ok" on deck power but I would never run them without an amp in my car. Radios just don't have enough power to drive them properly.
