Get some infinity components, and power them with a 2 channel amp. Get a new headunit too. :read:

First, stay away from Infinity!
God, I wish some one would explain to me why everyone is so sold on them, there is MUCH better sound and power handling speakers out there that cost less.
Now, back to the poster. How much money are you looking to spend? Also, what is your ride?
Speaker, I would most definately recommend Audiobahn
The AS line is simply AWESOME. On average they are around 94% efficient, they have great high, mid and md bass reproduct. They sound good off a H/U and scream off an amp. Best of all, if you look at the on-line dealer, they are MUCH cheaper then Infinity.
I will lave it at that, for now. Let me know the details about cost and your ride and I will shoot you more info.

Azwiley, why dont you like infinity's? My friend has a pair of kappas and they sound good to me. He paid 70 dollars for them. Sure if you pay retail, they're pretty expensive, but thats why there is ebay:read: What kind of speakers do you like better? I'm not trying to be rude, I'd just like to know, because eventually if I ever get a job, I'll be putting a system in the silverado

infinity comps are decent but too many people jump on their bandwagon IMO.

belmontrider is dead on. They are decent speakers. Infinity is nowhere near the quality that they used to be. At least once a week, if not more, we replace the Infinity speakers in new vehicles.
Me personally, I like (and curently run) EarthQuakes. They handle more power, are much cleaner sounding and fall in to an audiophile grouping. The one area they lack is good mid bass reproduction. Fosgate's speakers have taken a huge leap in the last year. They have the same features as the "Quakes" as well as a good mid bass.
But as of late, the biggest "kid" on the block is Audiobahn, hands down. I am replacing my door speakers with the ABC60003Q. It's a 6.5/4/25mm tweet set up and here are just a few of the specs on them.
30Hz - 25Khz
4Ohms @ 91db Sensitivity
The 6.5 has a 20oz mag on it.
MSRP is just over 4 bills but cost is about half.

Ok, but here is the problem. With out an idea of what you are going for and how much of a budget we are looking at, it makes it extremely difficult to point you in a direction.
Let's try this. Are you looking to add a sub and amp? Or just improve the sound over the stock system?

what comp set under 250$ has the best midbass? I'm still in the market for some... and I still want 2 JL 12w3v2s... really badly

basically just improve the sound over stock i think, just wonderin what yall thought a good start and the budget isnt really a problem i will be forced to save up and work for all of it and want to do it right the first time, so i want to know some guesses at costs etc. thanks for the help like i said im brand new to the sound stuff. later
