I have a 2 way coaxial speakers in the front doors of my car. I'm looking to add rear speakers as well. With my limited knowledge, i know that a component set of speakers would give me better sound. However, i'm not sure if I can hook up a component set with the coaxial door speakers.
 
You can hook rear speakers up but the questions are
1. Will the impedance be safe for the headunit or amp and will it be powerful enough?
If not then you will need a new or additional amp?
2. If the rears sound better would you be OK setting the balance to hear the rears only or set the fronts really low so they don't mess up the sound of the rears.
A coaxial speaker is a woofer with a separate tweeter mounted in the center. An expensive coax may sound better than a cheap component set up.

Not really. My question is more on the lines of which rear spears to buy that will work with my existing door 2-way speakers. should i buy coax rear speakers to match my door coax speakers or will a component set be able to work with the door coax?
 

LOL. No dude by component speakers he's asking separate bass-mid-tweet drivers vs coaxial (one driver, 2 cones).

OP, once upon a time somebody told me he didn't like coaxial, but didn't explain why, am guessing independent drivers work better, and component is more desirable but in a car oftentimes u don't have a choice right, u gotta use what fits unless you are willing to "custom$$" it. Are u afraid your rear passengers are going to get better sound than the driver? :) I wouldn't worry about it that much, 'cuz most people use the rears for "fillers" right. U will be "underutilizing" your rears but nothing should sound bad.

correct :D
 
Maybe ur next project. This car, I had two 4" firing at my knees and that's it, so I figure I needed a pair of tweets more at ears level would be good, and luckily found some tweeters that fit into my sails, came out pretty stock-looking must say.
