Default replacement door speakers, good, better, best

So I already have a nice sound system in my truck and I want to upgrade the door and rear speakers. Right now I have a Memphis pro comp 1000.1 amp and a 12" sub which does the job pretty good for what I have in it. Does anyone recommend a certain brand speaker or anyone think some are better than others. I know I could spend the extra money and get a good name brand 6x8 but I'd rather be a cheapo and not splurge on speakers that I don't need i.e. I don't need 6x8's for bass since I have a 12" sub. I more so need high and mid ranges more. The factory speakers do good but I know aftermarkets would be better. So, any suggestions or tips would be good. 3-ways over 2-ways? Thanks.

Last time I did speakers. Sony three-ways were a great bang for the buck. You should be able to get them at Walmart or an electronics store.

I was always a fan of Blaupunkt. I had a pair of those and a EB 12" sub in my hatchback Mustang. Punch 40 on the sub and an alpine V12 amp for high's and mids. 2" dome tweeters on the pillars.

I found some decent deals on ebay like 4 speakers for around 50-60 bucks. I just know that there's a lot of people who have replaced these speakers and I just want to know if there was any that were way better than factory. It's sucks because I've had 4 brand new JVC 6" round speakers for like 10 years that are still in the box lol. I just don't want to spend money on speakers that I wouldn't even notice a difference.

Pretty much anything is better than factory except maybe the junk they sell at auto parts stores. As long as it’s a name brand you recognize, it should an improvement.

Pyle. Lightning audio. Boss. Dual. Sound storm. Planet audio. Visnonik.

Avoid these brands. And you’ll be fine

Infinity Reference series is great bang for your buck. They aren't the bassiest, but like you say, you already have a sub. Get the 5.25" versions - round speakers often perform better and have less distortion than the oblong versions.
