I'm thinking of upgrading all my interior speakers, well the 4 that I have anyway. lol So, I was looking at the Infinity Kappas and was told their good, they sound like good quality, but I thought I'd ask if that's a good choice and if it's worth upgrading the speakers. The only audio upgrade I have now is an Alpine Type R 12 sub and Alpine MRP-500 Amp. Stock headunit, AM/FM Cassette 1 CD no OnStar. :beer:

Ok, so I found this headunit and it looks like a nice piece, but was wondering if anyone had had experience with it? I have an Alpine Type R 12 sub, and plan to upgrade my speakers soon (Still figuring which I want). I've attached some speakers, so if someone who's been around the block could help, I'd really appreciate not ending up buying hundreds of dollars in sh*t. Thanks! Oh, for those who don't know I have an Alpine Type R 12 hooked to a Alpine MRP-500 amp.

Honestly, I will probably go to BB and ask one of the guys there (There's a guy who's really into car audio) and have him help me out, but I do still value your opinions and want to hear about the above. Thanks!

Ok, so went to Best Buy and these are the speakers they suggested:

Rear 6x9s:

Polk Audio - 6" x 9" 3-Way Coaxial Loudspeakers with Poly-Mica Cones (Pair) - DXi690

And the 6 1/2:

Polk Audio - 6-1/2" Coaxial Loudspeakers with Poly-Mica Cones (Pair) - DXI650

Polk Audio - 6-1/2" Component Loudspeakers with Poly-Mica Composite Cones (Pair) - DXi6500

Anyone think it's worth getting the $199 set? I can get it for less, but is it worth the $50 more?

And then the Alpine HU:

Alpine - 50W x 4 iPod®-/Satellite Radio-/HD Radio-Ready In-Dash Navigation CD Deck - INA-W900BT INA&cp=1&lp=1

I'll need the harness & the dash kit. Anything else?

Lol, no I'm buying everything online and having BB install it. I found some of those Polks for like $60 for the 6x9s practically brand new. lol, so that may be what I do unless anyone has bad experience with them.

Probably. I have to get all the cost figured out. My B-Day is coming up, so I'm gonna ask for some stuff, but I want to know what I need to buy myself.
