what front component speakers?

can someone possibly suggest what front door component speakers i should buy for a u.k MY99 that will be fitted by a professional. i'm not sure what size or make to get. all i know is they are half the price to buy on the i-net as they are from any of my local stockists. my local stockists got all cagey about me buying them elsewhere, obviously because they can be picked up alot cheaper. i'd rather buy them that way and just get them fitted by someone who knows. i understand that adapters may be needed but i'll leave that to the professional to sort out. can i have 6.5'' or are 5.25'' needed?

any links to recommended speakers would be really helpful. under or up to £70.00 if possible. all i know is, the speaker/magnet depth is an issue when fitting in the doors.

cheers people,
rgds, Andrew.

i took the plunge and got them off flee bay in the end. £59.00 delivered. most places wanted £80.00 plus del. halfords wanted £100.
i tested them and others out on a couple of occasions in different halfords around cardiff. £100 was pushing it though. the best sounding by far for £59.00

no, they have been desptched and are arriving tomorrow. however, before i get them fitted i have to also buy a new head unit as i droped mine without the case the other week and two days after that it went dead. it was an out dated sony cd player. i'm currently looking at getting one of these two,

this one with a usb slot
http://www.newimagecarhifi.net/scrip...idproduct=1112

or this one with an SD card slot
http://www.newimagecarhifi.net/scrip...?idproduct=884

my only hold back is the idea of buying one mail order and not having a 'shop' warranty but only a manufacturers warranty. this could cause major hassle if the unit malfunctions. but then again the one in the bottom link is £300 in halfords and other local stockists.

i've tested both the above units and the bottom one is much better sound, but the top one is less flashy and cheaper, so maybe a more sensible option.
what do you think?
