Upgradeing speakers with shaker 500

So after installing a new alpine head unit wanted to see if it would be worth it to replace the speakers on the rear deck. Or should I leave them been out of the speaker loop for a long time. What do you guys think ,thanks

I would upgrade all the front stuff before upgrading the rear deck, and then when doing the rear speakers I still wouldn't go crazy on them. I've always been into spl comps, but with my old age getting more into normal music with decent, not great since my hearing is going anyway, sq.

07 gt, CMS cams, hurst, CAI/tuned, LT's, o/r h, m80's, FRPP mani, UDP, lowered with steeda 1.25/1.5, exedy mach 400/race flywheel, 1-pc DS, BMR upper/lowers, 4.10's, CHE brace with TL's, and a few other things that dont add up to much.

What's a good upgrade for the fronts? Any suggestions

I put the ones below all the way around. They are a good upgrade over stock that's for sure. Sound quality got a good boost from the fronts and head unit going aftermarket. I didn't go real deep into expensive speakers obviously because I am just not a huge audio buff. I will say fronts made a lot more of an improvement over rears at least from what I can hear by staggering the install. The one's I linked are on crutchfield too but they have them listed $30 more per pair.

Depends how much you care about sq. for me with my hearing as it is now I would go with some cheaper speakers. Those jvc are good, so are pioneers for the price. For me to get better sound over those above you need to shell out a few hundred extra. I would get some of the Shelby kicker door subs and 2 sets of those jvc's or pioneers and call it a day!

If you already have subs in the door since you have the shaker 500, you don't need a 3 way speaker.

I listened to these in person and they had a really clear high and mid and almost no bass and they include their own built in crossover to keep the signal clear. I'm about to drop the hammer on a set for the front and rear.

Alpine SPS-517 Type S 5"x7"/6"x8" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com

I did some quick digging on those JVCs and the cone surround is a cloth rubber mix which will break down faster than a pure rubber surround.

From what I can tell with the stock rear/ front spreakers (since i just did the swap 4 days ago), i say do a 6x8 with or without tweeters in the rear and focus all of your energy on the front. The rears from the factory dont even have a tweeter and just a larger magnet for a little bass to carry the sound. the front's have a coaxial with a tweeter but with literally no magnet, its like 1/8" of plastic on the rear vs. the 3/4" magnet on the rear. I say JL audio in the front, or its a no go. There is a guy who went with the 6" kit with seperate tweeters and mounted them in the triangle upper door pieces. That looks like the best option.

Yeah I saw on crutchfields website that the way the rears were installed changed in 07... If I have an 05 they should be simple to get to right?

I have to start at the Sill Panel, then the rear panel, then the seat belt, then the rear seats, then the top carpet, then I can unscrew the speakers...

Nice guide

It isnt actually that hard. I dont understand why most people say that. I was just brave enough to try it and i figured out everything snaps together and had push pins. It took me 15 minutes to get to them and change both out whereas it took 30 minutes per door because of all the fricken bolts.
Yeah to the rear it is 10 push pins, and 4 screws per speaker, and the panels kind of snap into each other. Very easy! It sounds much harder than what it is.
