Default Budget front speakers?

So my front speakers in my 2000 civic coupe totally blow. I am saving money for my vitara build, but I want some cheap speakers that sound decent. Any suggestions? I usually go for infinity reference but they are like $60

I bought some 6.5" x-plore (x-plode knockoffs) for $20 new at the swap meet. So far so good.

I'm running these and a 50w deck, had to cut out the back of my factory speaker buckets, but it sounds good for what it is

Best buy has the insignia line for 20 bucks.

I used them when I got my ride and they werent the best, but they were better then OEM.

Im using Polk's now (got a deal at bestbuy for 40 bucks a pair) and the difference is night and day over the insignias.

Pay the extra money for decent speakers so you dont have to swap them out in the future.

I will put in another vote for the Sony speakers. They aren't great, but for the money they don't suck.

Ive been running some cheap Walmart Sony's for the past three years with no problems and I usually listen at a moderate to loud volume.

On a side note, anyone worried about weight will appreciate the 10" Kicker BassStation PT10. Its a 10" sub/box/amp combo that weighs in at 18lbs and sounds awesome in a hatch. Been loving mine, bit of a steep price though.

I like Pioneer myself. You can get a set of 6.5 for 60-80 on ebay.
