Up grading 5.25 ceiling speakers?

This last weekend I finnaly figure out the problem with my RCA receiver/DVD player. Yes after 5 years. The answer to my feedback buzzing noise from the TV, was using a optical fiber from the TV to the receiver. Now looking to upgrade the ceiling speakers. Which are 5 1/4". Has anyone else swapped them out?
Thanks Gary

I have done this swap to every TT and Toy Hauler we have owned. The ones that come with the rig are garbage. Amazing the difference in sound a good pair of Pioneer or Kenwood's does. This is a very easy swap to do.

I know this post is a few months old, but I would really love to hear from people that did a successful swap. Both inside and outside.
I'd like to know what make and model speakers work well with the stock radio.
I'm no audiophile, but the tinny factory speakers leave a lot to be desired.

Hi Wingerdinger,

This was about the first job I did on our TT, can't bear poor audio from rubbish spkrs.

I bought a pair of Pioneer speakers from Best Buy. They were under $40 for the pair. BB had about a dozen pairs hooked up so it was just a matter of listening to them all then choosing those which best suited my personal taste.

Mine are sold as full range speakers and each has a small tweeter suspended over the main cone for high frequencies.

For no other reason than I like the warmth and depth of good sound, and my stereo has a separate sub-woofer terminal, I added a 9" powered unit and hid it under the end of the countertop.

Kenwood replacement speakers

I replaced the crappy speakers in my Zinger with Kenwood KFC-1695PS 3-way speakers from Amazon. About $57 CAN. Made a big difference when watching TV, as voices were really muddled on the factory ones. Note that you are not going to get booming bass from a pair of 6.5" speakers, but you could always add a subwoofer if you are a real audiophile. For me it was the clarity of the sound.
