    5 1/4\" speaker options--what do you guys recommend??

    I got some speaker pods for nothin at the junk yard and was wondering what type of 5 1/4" speakers I should put in them? 2-ways, 3-ways, component?? Also, does the amount of air space within the speaker pod have an impact on the way the speaker will sound? If you guys need pics of the pods I can get them for you.

    Thanks
    Ross

    Id go componet if I could afford it otherwise a 2way will sound good. 5'1/4 isnt much room to build a 3way and I dont think It would sound better so i wouldnt look at those. from personal experiance Ive had good luck with the infinity kappas. I had polkaudios once and they sounded really nice to. Airspace does play a role in how they sound but since these are playing in a higher freq range than a sub and are not verybig you dont want alot of airspace...just dont worry about that put them in and enjoy.
