    Default Best speakers for a 1999 suburban

    Just bought a kenwood excelon stereo for the Burban and was wondering what the best speakers are? I have the six speakers in mine, two on the front doors 2 on the rear doors and two on the back ceiling. I want to get the best speakers possible for under 600
    MONTANA CADILLAC

    Proper noun. Used to describe ones large, lifted, comfortable, gas guzzling SUV that is driven primarily in the backwoods. Synonym for Chevy Suburban/ GMC Yukon XL.
    One corporate Suburbanite says to the other, while sipping his overpriced latte, "Check out the hick in that Montana Cadillac!" Both giggle as they wait for AAA to come pull their Audi/ BMW/ Mercedes out of a snow filled ditch

    Well first off with that radio it has a built in Crossover. So you can cut off the Bass at a level that would not cause distortion in the factory speakers and inturn you can turn up the volume and have a cleaner sound. BUT if you do want new speakers and not going to add an amp I would say run over to Sound Waves on Rt46 ask for Joe and to get some JL Audio TR650CSI's for the front door and 650's for the back IF they will fit if to deep try the TR525's. They both will give you an even sound with some nice midbass without an amp... As for the rear roof 4x10's disconnect them not worth replacing.. If you need a hand PM me we are close enough.....

    You don't need to skip the rear speakers. Get a nibbler and cut the holes to fit a quality 6x9 up there. It really adds a nice rear fill. I skipped the rear doors in mine and was very happy. (I always have the rear seats folded down and the third seat out)

    With the amount of power the radio puts out I would not do that. (22watts RMS) All you will have is a Big Tweeter Most good 6x9's want 40 watts and up to give you any good midbass..In such a long truck you will be better off doing the 4 doors. A good coax for the rear and Comp's for the front..IF you are going to amp then we could do better...
