Co-axials are generally of a lower grade speaker than component sets, of course there are some exceptions but few and far between.
Firstly a '97 cherokee uses a 5.25" speaker I believe as my '95 model is that size.
As for Pioneers, you get what you pay for and Pioneers are pretty cheap compared to the good ones....

If you have to get coaxials, the Pioneer TS D161R's are great speakers. Otherwise, there are tons of great component speakers to choose from

Default What about a 6X9 in the doors?

How would a set of Kappa 6X9 do in the doors with a baffel on them and crossed over to a midrange? Thanks for the replys.

No not necessarily some of the best systems that I have heard have the mids and tweeters completely off axis and on top of that some were using co-incident source speakers which technically is a co-axial (Kef Uni-Q) but as I said before it is all to do with $$$$

have you listened to the Focal Access 165A1's? they are worth a listen to, you should listen to any speaker before you like them.
