I have a blown speaker in the rear door lower location.
I'm having an issue finding something decent to put in there.

Crutchfield has PowerBass OE-6C but Im not familiar with that brand

I want to put in components that wont break the bank while keeping the rest of the system stock.
Any ideas?

Pretty sure you're not going to find anything that will sound comparable to OEM. My cheapest suggestion would be to replace both rear speakers so at least they will sound similar to each other and not affect the overall sound as much. I, also have never heard of that brand. Just go with an inexpensive Kicker, Sony or something like that. Nothing with titanium tweeters though, as that would be too bright for the back channel.

There are several threads on here where guys have changed out dash speakers, door speakers and the whole system, let alone adding subs. I don't recall which brands they went with but you could do a little digging and find out.

You could just buy a stock speaker if you want it to match. Somewhere like kiaparts has them for a decent enough price.

Infinity Reference speakers are a very nice option.

Ok it seems the speakers in the rear door are wired together with a cap on the tweeter, unlike the front door each speaker is connected to the amp separately .
I haven't taken my door panels off. Has anyone checked the speakers for impedance?
I don't want to get 4ohm speakers and loose some volume if 2ohm is supported throughout
Crutchfield told me to stick with components and use it's crossover as the factory isn't crossedover.
