I am looking to replace the front speakers in my 2018 F150 truck. The front speaker locations take either 6.5" or 6x9 speakers, and tweeters in the A-pillars. I want to go component speakers to take advantage of the already existing tweeters in the stock locations.
I mostly listen to classic rock/80's and like a little bass. I already have a 10" sub behind the rear seat so I feel like I have a decent handle on bass.
I will probably initially power the speakers off the stock headunit. Eventually might replace it with one of the little class D amps like the Kicker Key180.4 or similar.
The two speakers I'm looking at are the Morel Maximo 6 (6.5" components) and the Infinity Reference 9620CX, which is a 6x9 component set. I really don't know a lot about either brand to be perfectly honest. I'm more of a home audio guy. The reason I'm considering the Morels is everyone keeps telling me what a great bargain the Maximos are, and the Infinity Reference because the REF-9620CX are 6x9 (more woofer area) and they're cheap compared to the current model of the same speaker (the REF-9630CX).
I will treat the inside of the doors with Noico 80 mil deadener, and am considering the Install Bay silicone speaker baffles.
I am curious what you guys think about the two speaker lines mentioned here. Is there a clear winner or mostly just personal preference?
