Sony Xplōd XS-GT1327A
5-1/4" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Sony Xplōd XS-GT1327A by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Replace your car's factory speakers with these Sony Xplōd GT Series speakers, and you'll hear the full impact of your music, along with lots of little details you may not have heard before.
The XS-GT1327A 5-1/4" speakers feature woofer cones made from Highly Oriented Polyolefine, a lightweight material developed by Sony that's especially rigid and strong. Sony reinforces these cones with the same Aramid fibers that are used in bulletproof vests, so they'll stand up to high-volume playback. Each speaker features a 1" balanced dome tweeter that reproduces lively high notes and adds presence to the instruments and vocals. Sony includes cool-looking grilles if you're not going to use the grilles that came in your vehicle.
Priced per pair
i would recommend this set of speakers if you need to replace your existing stock speakers because they are blown or just plain suck. Not gonna blow you away, but if you expect that you will get that for 50 bucks you're crazy.

Woofers: The woofers are made of Highly Oriented Polyolefine (HOP) reinforced with aramid fibers, which is 30 times as strong as regular poly. Use of this material results in less distortion and better, quicker bass response.
Treated Cloth Surrounds: Each woofer uses a treated cloth surround for added reliability and efficiency.
PEN Diaphragm Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" PEN (Polyethlylene Naphthalate) diaphragm balanced dome tweeter for fast transient highs with lower distortion.
