Default Please advice rear speakers

Hi,

First of all, thanks to all bhpians for helping me with my previous setup in my Hyundai accent. Its time now for me to replace the rear speakers of my car. Here is the current setup in my car.
Head Unit - Pioneer 7750
Amp- Blaupunkt - THA480
JBL CS1200T bass tube
Fronts - Soundstream speakers
Rear- Pioneer REV range speakers (yellow colour) 330 Max, 60 rms @ 4 ohms each.

I am very satisfied with the current setup, except for the rear pio speakers. My budget would be around Rs 5000. Kindly suggest me good rear speakers. I heard soundstream speakers, and did find them quite good, but still i believe in team-bhp before taking any decision.
My amp is connected to the rear speakers and the bass tube. The fronts are not connected to the amp. So, its like 240 x 1 Rms is going into the tube, and 80 x 2 Rms rear speakers (all at 4ohms). Keeping in mind 80 x 2 rms please suggest rear speakers.

Thanks

yeah ...was just going to say that.try out hertz.and also JBL 636.as your bass needs will be satisfied by your sub.but if you want you speakers to put out a good amount of bass too then get the JBL 936 instead.

JBL's are a little more treblish for my taste, so do this, take your favorite CD and give various brands like JBL, Hertz, Soundstream, Boston Accoustic, Cewin Wega etc a try and choose what sounds best to your ears. I dont think TBHP can help, as every member here has a different taste and only your ears can be the best judge.

JBL is 936 is 100 watts RMS. My amp (THA480) is providing 80 X 2 Rms at 4 ohms fo rear speakers . Will JBL 936 work perfect with my amp at high volumes? On the amp there is a knob which says "Level", and with my current setup, for the rear pio speakers the level knob is at half. If i plan to install JBL 936 speakers and they have distortion at high volumes, will i need to increase the "Level" knob?

I AM SORRY IF THIS A SILLY QUESTION!!!!

Amit the last I checked JBL 636 were 60 watts RMS and so should probably be 936. However even if they are 100 watts, you wont here any audible difference between 80 W RMS amp or 100 W rms amp. The level knob you have in layman terms allows you to set the signal amplification level. For a 4V pre out signal you would need to amplify less than a 2V pre out signal. However the more you amplify the more noise you would get. The best way to configure the level is to set the volume to the highest level that you listen your music too, and than tweak the gain so that your music doesnt sound distorted. You can google a bit and you will come accross plenty of useful information as to how to go about setting the gain of the amplifier.

the JBL 936 is 100 W rms.and as aseem already said that knob is just the level of amplification.

about the price of the hertz speakers im not really sure but they are about 6000.or maybe less.mclaren or gunbir will be able to give you an exact figure.

1. since the front are soundstream why not use them in the rear?
2. trust your ears not TBHP or anyone else. I dont! :-)
3. Use the amp for the front and sub and let the rear use the HU. you want your image in the front.

Most of the dealers I have spoken to (5 of them) have recommended JBL. I've heard JBL and XPLODE, and JBL rocks.

..and Alpine, Infinity (JBL sister brand), Polk, Boston, Focal...the list is endless. First decide on a price band. the brands will automatically fall in place.
