Found the Polk Audio db 521 5-1/4" and the Polk Audio db 651 6-1/2" on sale today at Crutchfield. Got both pairs for $144 shipped. These and Jim Clayton's speaker rings for $40. Under $200 for a great upgrade to the Blah, Blah, Blaupunkt stock speakers...Not bad.

I spent more on the same setup 3 months ago. Totally worth it.

How does the Blaupunkts vs. Polks vs. Alpines (Exige stockers) compare? Did your 06 Exige come with a Blaupunkt or Alpine system?

Mine is the Blaupunkt head unit. I had the same Polk speakers in my Elise before I got the Exige. I knew this was going to be one of my first upgrades. The Polks sound so much better. I have not heard the Alpines, but I would think they would also be better than stock by a long shot.

...i can't speak to the alpines, but simply upgrading speakers from the stock blaupunkts to polk dbs, nothing more, transforms the stereo from cringeworthy to perfectly listenable...

good point. I like the grills on the Polks. I think that the guy that paints the center consoles paints the speakers too. I haven't seen any chrome orange ones though.
