    the factory deck will kinda limit ya to lower end speakers that dont require alot of power and you'll have to use a line output converter to get RCA's for the sub and amp to work..i'd suggest just some 3-way pioneers or somethin..anything is better than paper cone stockers

    i replaced all mine with polk DB components..they'd sound a heckuva lot better with an amp but my alpine deck pushes them pretty well..i have a cheap powerbass DVC 12" sub in an old downfiring JL stealthbox made by Vantage..i'm running a older fosgate power 500a2 running mono to it and my setup sounds pretty good

    Re: 98 z71 door speaker replacement

    I got a 98 Z71 ext too with a full system. Got an alpine deck, 6.5" Alpine Type S in the front doors, 4x6 alpine S in the back, Infinity 4 channel 75x4 RMS for those. Got a custom underseat box off ebay with a 10" JL audio sub powered by an alpine m500 amp... Had the amps installed by 2 guys, 1 a mechanic and 1 a car audio expert. He tuned both amps for me and all I do is adjust the settings on the headunit for different music. I'll put pics of it all up sometime soon for ya. I have listened to a lot of metal, a lot of hiphop and a lot of good old rock. It all sounds great with a few adjustments to the deck! Any questions? Ill see what I can do to answer!

    Re: 98 z71 door speaker replacement

    i love em, if you like treble youll love these! Metal absolutely pierces my eardrums into shreds with the guitars when I turn it up, I gotta turn the treble down if I dont want TOO much hearing loss. I cant say if its the amp that pushes these frequencies out of the speakers, but I ran all 4 with just the headunit for a while and this was before my ipod wiring, so i only had my bad reception radio, but it got very loud with no amps! cant say much for the bass they offer, as it is all filtered to the sub

    All my pics are very big in file size at any dimensions... They were taken with my good camera so I wish I could just dump the quality and keep them big somehow..
