    Cheap audio upgrade

    So I bought a shitbox ae100 rolla for doing dirt skids in and use as a runabout since the lexus and mx5 are shithouse on gas for short trips.

    I have this spare http://www.eaudio.co.nz/ca475plus.htm

    Car currently just has im guessing stock front speakers and some sony coaxials in the rear, with a cheap sony HU.

    Whats the cheapest way to have something sounding ok. Are 6x9s still rubbish, or acceptable? or do i just have to get some cheap components and a small sub?

    I've spend big money on speakers over the years and honestly I would fit 6x9s if that's what the factory location was for, otherwise I wouldn't. I don't think 6x9s are much worse than the round equivalent however with high end speakers there often just isn't a 6x9 option.

    This guy is selling some Clarion speakers, they are literally a Hertz Hi Energy speaker with Clarion badges

    Yeah I've had decent stuff in the past but just want some cheap easy bass. It doesn't have 6x9 holes but I can make spacers, it would be easier than a small sub and I won't lose boot space if I need it.

    I'm no expert but I would have through some good 6.5 or similar (if possible) for the front and some cheap 6x9s for fill and bass in the rear would be the go

    Yeah thats likely what ill do, i have some infinity components in the mx5 i could pull out since thats mostly relegated to competition use now. And pair it with some 2way 6x9s.
