Looking updating Betty's speakers... I'm looking for 2 sets of 5.25" speakers, that are fairly inexpensive, yet have decent quality set speakers that sound good for my TJ. I'm not looking to cut 6.5" speakers into my sound bar either, though may help a little with sound/bass.
So tonight I get on Crutchfield and look... I became confused as to specs... So I chose 1 brand for comparison.
I chose the Crutchfield brand - Sound Ordnance... size 5.25".
I limited my search to the 5.25" size and the same brand.
I came up with 2 choices. one for $40 and one for $80.
90% of time, I'd say... the $80 one would be best... right?

Well I decided to look over specs... And other than the $80 set rated at 2-50w RMS vs $40 set at 2-40w RMS... If I understand the link below...the specs seem to be better on cheaper set...
I'm wanting full range and a little bit of bass... the crappy cheap Dual 5.25" I have now... sound ok, but very tinny, but honestly don't recall their specs.

After reviewing this link... (and yes, I realize that this link is for home speakers, but assume the science/info is basically the same)
I feel that I should go with the $40 set....
Is my logic incorrect?
I listen mostly to 70-80's Rock and 80's Hair Bands.... Not Looking anything crazy... just better sound than I have now.
I am using these dash pods in the dash now with the cheap speakers

I almost think the speakers sounded better with out them...
My head unit is a cheap aftermarket unit. DUAL
Presently, I do not have a sub either.
I'm not putting in a better unit, in fears of it becoming tempting to a thief.
I don't recall the output on the unit... If memory serves me correctly, it says something like 60W or 80w x4.
I like it because I can use an USB or a SD Card for digital music... 90% of time I listen to FM, but on the days I want... I can listen to RATT until my brain explodes.
I like music, but not really don't understand the science behind it all....
So hopefully someone can help me understand what I'm finding... I'm not saying I'm buying the S/O speakers from Crutchfield... I'm trying to use them more as comparisons.
