How many speaker are in a mid-series sound system in an EL XR?
Im pretty sure its 4 (2 front, 2 back?), but just wanna make sure.

Also, what are the sizes of the speakers as i want to replace them with good quality aftermarket ones?

Cheers people!

6 Speakers? Cool.

Do the 2 dash tweeters & 2 front door speakers run through crossovers? If so, where are they located?

Cheers mate.

Thanks mate.

I'll be able to replace the factory speakers in the front doors & parcel tray with 6.5" wont i? They should fit no worries hey?

If so, i might set up a set of decent 6.5" splits in the front. Sound alright?

Cheers.

Im open minded - Anything that is of high quality.
Something that would work well with my pioneer p1y head unit, no cheapie s**t though.

What would you recommend with a budget of about $300 to $400 just for the front 6.5" split set? And around $300ish for the rear parcel tray 6.5"?

Might be able to spend a little more on better quality speakers if need be...
So any recommendation would help greatly! :lol:

Thanks for your help buddy.

personally i see no reason to go overboard on rear fill unless you're not gonna be getting a sub sometime down the track, so i'd say $550-600 for fronts and $150 for rear fill

honestly, go out and demo various speakers, cos what sounds good to me might be pretty average to you, but heres what i reccomend:

Fronts: JL Audio VR-600 CSi 2-way splits $389
Rears: JL Audio TR-600 CXi 2-way coaxials $179

if you want to stay with Pioneer,

TS-C160R, ~$500 (IMO not as nice as the JL's)
TS-E1695 $219 (very nice.....)

but as i said, listen before you buy
