    Looking for good quality 4 x10s to replace the worn out factory ones. I plan on running a bit of power through them (about 35 watts), but I cant seem to find any good ones out there, mainly no-name factory replacements. Any suggestions?
    thanks

    Over the last couple of years, I have noticed a steady decline in the production of 4x10's. The only line that I carry any more that even makes 4x10's is ECLIPSE. They are awesome sounding. That would be my suggestion.

    If you want to spend a little less money, Pioneer makes a 2-way 4x10.

    73K5 is wright, I dont carry pioneer any more so I wasnt sure if they made them. I also think Kenwood is still making a 4x10. I lean towards the Eclipse because of experience. I ran Eclipse 8263 6.5" coaxes in my kickpanels and there 3way 6x9's in the rear of my K5 for a long time. They were rained, snowed, muded, sunshined, kicked on, hell my dog even peed on them once, and I never had a problem with them. As a matter of fact, I still have the 6x9's floating around my tool box somewhere! Anyway, hope this helps. HAVE A NICE DAY!!

    Sounds like the Eclipse's are the way to go, are there any mail order places that carry them? And how much do they cost? I checked a nearby wal-mart who carrys pioneer speakers and they did not have any 4x10s. Thanks for the help!

    No, Eclipse is only going to be in a speacialty retailer. IE A Good stereo shop. If you cant find any let me know, Maybe we can work something out, possibly ship them to you. Let ma know.

    I called around and nobody carries Eclipse speakers around here. The only 4x10s they have are Jensen, I would rather have the eclipes's because I have had bad luck with jesen speakers over the years. How much would a pair of Eclipse 4x10s cost through you? My zip code is 46112 if you want to include shipping costs.
    thanks again

    Forget 4x10's. They are too far in the back and the Spare tire muffles the sound out of the right one anyway. Install 6x9's next to the rear bench seat. There is no metal to cut through, just foam and cardboard. Also, you can easily cut the wires leading to the rear 4x10's and use them to run the 6x9's. This is a very easy installation and you will appreciate the sound out of the 6x9's a lot more than the 4x10's. Oh yeah, one last thing; for the price you would pay for O.K. 4x10's, you can get very nice 3 way 6x9's.
