Replacement speakers for stock location, 07 F350 Crewcab.

I have a 2007 F350 Crew Cab Dually that I'm upgrading the stereo in. I bought a Kenwood KVT-696 headunit. I like it and the single DIN gives me an extra storage pocket. I will soon have a Pioneer TS-SW2501S4 10" Subwoofer driven by an Alpine MRP-M500 500W amplifier. I'm building a sealed box to suit the sub and area behind the back seat, driver side.

I'm looking to upgrade the interior speakers with something that will fit in the stock locations without custom fiberglass enclosures and hack and slashing the interior. I am OK with surface/screw mounting tweeters, just don't want it to be OBVIOUSLY hacked in aftermarket. I'd prefer to run the speakers off the headunit for easy install and reducing overall cost. It's 50Wx4 and people seem happy with the quality output. My budget for the speakers is generous for good quality, but I'm not looking for competition quality.

So my question is - are there any known good speaker brands, sizes, combinations that work well with the the F350 Crew cab in the stock locations? Any further suggestions?

I went with 4 Pioneer 3-ways 5x7's in the stock locations powered only by my Clarion CX-609 which is 50x4 and it sounds great, paired up with my Pioneer 10" sub.

a quality set of coaxial's will be just fine(JL, MB Quart, Boston Acoustics,etc), but if you decide on a set of component speakers, flush mounting a tweeter isn't difficult at all, it just takes some bravery to take a hole saw to your interior panel of choice lol

I use an adapter plate to run 5 1/4 components, the tweeters are mounted on a bridge over the woofers.

Thanks for the offer on the Phoenix Gold. I ordered up x2 pair of 5x7 MB Quart because I've had great sound from them in the past. I'll post back when I have them installed. Thanks!

Quick update... The MB Quart ONYX 5x7 came in today so I tossed them in first. I'd say there's a very positive difference in the mids and highs (to be expected, really) but I'm very disappointed by the lower frq. I am driving them off my HU for right now so they may be underpowered?

I'm looking forward to installing the Phoenix Gold Ti for comparision, and getting the box and amp(s) installed... Those should be here tomorrow.

are you going to x-over and amplify your 5x7's or are you going to run them off the head unit?
