I've been doing some research and have probably been mainly confusing my self. From what I have been searching our trucks come stock with 1inch tweeters, 6x9 front, and 5.25 rear.
I was thinking of making it nice and simple and just going 6.5 all around with the same speaker and 1inch tweeter that way there isn't noticeable differences from separate brand speakers. I know that the 6.5s should fit in the front with a particleboard shaped like the 6x9 with hole in it or brackets. For the rear how would it work out I've read that it just needs raised from the mount?
I have yet to rip any panels off since I'm still in the search phase, I have the tweeters (doesn't say infinity anywhere though)
, sounds like **** since I think most of it is about dead. I would like to keep the factory head unit and amps for the least amount of headache. Is there wiring adaptors for plug and play like hot/neu or is soldering the best way?
Here is what I have picked and please let me know if there is anything cheaper for bang for buck, or better, with in that range of course. tweeters seemed pricey to me though.
Polk Audio db651s Slim-Mount 6.5" Coaxial Speakers (59.87/pair)
Polk Audio db521 5.25(56.35/pair)
Polk Audio db1001 25mm Silk/Polymer Composite Dome Tweeters (61.99/pair)
Convertible 6 x 9" Speaker Adapter (11.95/pair)
I think this is a better stock replacement and cheaper:
Polk db6501, 2 6.5 Component Speakers and 2 25mm Tweeters, and Amps?(114.58/set) (Will that just simply be plug and play?)
Or is it just easier to buy a new head unit, which most are per-amped and bypass the smaller amps?
Maybe somebody can just piece me together a good system for a cheap price, since i have no idea what to even look for. I don't want to add subs, but I do want good bass. I listen to mainly country and hard rock. I do not want to do rewiring! the whole way around the truck.
