need some new speakers

hey yall, i'm replacing the in dash speakers in the heep...... what is a good brand to go with. sound quality and reliability included. also, theres a good chance the'll get a little moisture every so often, not like under water, but maybe overspray from water hose / splashing water whil ridin the creeks or just humidity from bein in the open jeep in the deep south. is it worth it buying some marine speakers? are there any marine speakers that sound good? i dont need competition quality speakers but i wanna be able to hear my music and actually understand the lyrics. also, any specific size or bolt pattern or anything i need to look for? thanks

-its a 91 YJ

Best bet, pull your old ones first (good luck its a pain) that way you can match up your sizes and stuff and most marine ones sound decent, that what my uncle put in mine before I baught it, a little on the flat side but I think thats my rear speakers. But good luck

I just took mine out and I am waiting on some sony xplods to be shipped to the store. From what I have been told 2, 3, or 4 way means how many ranges it has, such as low, mid, and high would be 3 way. The xplods I am getting are 4 way and I have heard good things about them. $50 on sonys website.

dont even bother with any sony car audio. its all s###.

as for new speaker i am a fan of infinity speakers, a nice set of kappa 3-way should work fine.
