I need to replace the factory speakers on my '97. I believe that they are 6.5" units.

I know this will be a loaded question, but are there any 6.5" speakers you would recommend? They've all got pros and cons. I'm not trying to produce sound that can be heard by a skier or by the crew in the boat at WOT. I'm looking for decent quality sound during breaks and cruising along at slower speeds. Assume that I'm going with a head unit producing 100W peak/channel and not using an amp if that helps.

Thanks!

I like the Polk 6.5’s that I have in my Sport I also had a set of them in my ‘95.

With that said, you can’t go wrong with Alpine or any of the other top manufacturers. Sounds like you’re like me and just want basic sound while floating or putting around, I would look at price more than name.

Thank you so much for the answer man! yeah I'll just stick to my budget, but I don't mind to pay more if the quality is somewhat better. Now after checking some options online I see nicely priced 200-350W units...so I am thinking if 100W is still a good idea. Also would I need to add an amplifier or anything else to hook up louder speakers?

Like I mentioned I’m just a basic stereo guy, guess it depends on your head unit and how much noise you want to produce.
