Default Speakers for Baleno Altura

Hi,I need advice regarding speakers in my Baleno Altura.This car has a huge cabin,but no provision for fitting big speakers.Front doors have 6" rounds,which I think are appropriate.But at rear,I want to fit some better and louder speakers.Please suggest me best options in 6" round speakers,or some other way to fit bigger speakers.

why not get an amp and a sub. since teh rear cabin is so big can you sacrifice about 1.5 cu. ft. for a sub? amps take up little room. then you can have smaller speakers in the exisiting speakers pods (4" in the rear and 6" in the front) and let the subwoofer manage the bass.

Question

As I couldn't find a way to fix bigger speakers,I've decided to fix OEM size 6" ones.Today I checked few brands at a shop,but couldn't decide.
Brands available are,JBL CS for Rs 1600,Bloupankt for Rs 1550,infinity for Rs 2100.But I couldn't decide becouse of a brand Bouschmann,available for Rs 1200.Speakers looked good quality ones,and while JBL and Bloupankt are rated for 40 watt RMS,these are 150 watt RMS.So I decided to discuss it here.
I wish to know,if anybody here has tried these speakers.Do they sound as good as they look,or should I buy JBL? Please suggest,I want loudest ones,as I don't want to fit subwoofer.

The boschman are bad....and they are not 150 watts rms by any chance...go with JBL without think as they are loved and praised but everyone on this forum. You cannot go wrong with JBL..

and wattages does not mean that the speaker will play loud. there are other thing like sensitivity which play the major role.

So go for a component kit in the front and a coax in the rear. later on you can add a amp to drive the speakers to extract max from them.

You can fit 6.5" in front and rear by using spacer rings..Whats your budget?

Avoid Boschman at any cost.

But there is no space for 6.5". OEM speakers are 155 mm and they are tight fit.JBL speakers I saw are 165 mm
Budget is no problem,but I don't want a shoddy fitting.Please suggest best 155mm speakers or some way to fix 6x9

You need to use spacer rings to fit an oversize speaker. thats what autophile has suggested.
