I have infinity's similar to these.
But you can find cheaper speakers that will work just fine too.
Those things are pretty toasted. I'm surprised you couldn't hear a difference...

For easily connecting speakers i just solder some wires to the speaker I'm putting in's terminal, then on the other end crimp some male quick disconnects. That way i can maintain the stock harness and easily switch speakers around.
Meh I prefer larger full range speakers to subs or boom tubes. I really would like to figure out a way to run some 10s in the back preferably in the stock location or once I delete my rear seat I will figure something out, and 8s in the doors. I know the 8s in the doors is doable. Then I will probably replace the factory amp with something that can actually give all 4 juice.
There is no such thing as a full range speaker. Going larger will increase the amount of midbass you can achieve, but going larger also decreases accuracy in the higher frequencies. You will never get door speakers to produce the bass a subwoofer produces, even if you go with 8s in the doors. Believe me...been there. The rear enclosure room for the OEM 6x9s isn't even close to what you would need for a 10"...even if it was of the shallow-mount variety.
Achieving useful midbass in the doors of our cars is perfectly do-able. It can be done easily with 6.5" drivers in modified stock enclosures. Search: aperiodic enclosures.
The point isn't to get "awesome bass from the doors"...it's to make the doors hit low enough to make you believe the corresponding bass from the sub(s) is coming from the front. The mids provide the "attack" of the bass hit (the frequency range that is locatable by our ears) and the sub fills-in the lower frequencies that are not locatable. Rear speakers do you a huge disservice in this arena. The locatable/non-locatable point is right around 100Hz. If you can get your doors to play lower than that, it makes it easier to perform the illusion. I have 6.5s in my doors right now (Diamond Hex) that I crossover at 50Hz (but with a really steep 24dB/octave slope) and they sound amazing. Like most things: it's all in the tuning.
Even though I have great midbass in the doors, I still have dedicated drivers for midrange (in kickpanel pods) and dedicated drivers for high frequencies...even ones for super-high frequencies (above 20kHz). No ONE speaker does it all. That's like saying there is ONE turbo to cover the range from 210hp to 1200hp. Use each component in your system for it's inherent advantages. Trying to make things perform outside their intended design parameters is how you blow things up.
Comes with a master sheet instruction and harness lit for free. Which would save anyone a few bucks.
Pioneer Head with Inifnity speakers is a great combo, budget friendly.
My first car 89 cutlass ciera has this setup my brother who is a system freak. Thought I had 10's in the rear when I told its 6x9s he and I laughed at him.
