    i know of www.thezeb.com
    and I know that www.cruthcfield.com is overpriced
    what else it there? I am looking for some 6.5" MB Quart speakers to put in the front of my car. I have tweeters in the door already, but I dunno if I want these new speakers to have tweets or not. Advice?

    Thanks for all of the help guys... I already have some MB Quarts in the back too, some co-axials. Everything is fine except for my 2 front speakers. The tweeters in the back and in the front doors work great, but the 6.5" speakers in the door are blown (they were stock and I guess old?). Anyway, I have a good amp powering my speakers so I just need to replace the front 2 and I am set. How do these look: http://www.millionbuy.com/mbqdkd116ac.html That looks like what I want. Since I have tweeters in the door, would it effect sound quality to use coaxials as well? Thanks!

    I'd love too. I can't find just mids for around $100. Should I be spending more? All I need is the mids, but I just cant find that!

    i'd suggest going with different mids....

    www.partsexpress.com ... DIY component sets are all the rage nowadays with the kids ... wait, i'm 20... but honestly...whether it be home or car... DIY componentry is the way to go

    The only problem with that is you will need to be able to design your own passive crossovers (unless you biamplify).

    I've used IkeSound on ebay many times and never had a problem, another one I always used to go through was www.CBRStereo.com , I'm not sure if they are even up or how they are doing, but they used to be my primary source.
