2002 Double Cab Speaker Upgrade? HELP !!

Hey Guys, new to the forum. What did some of you guys do? have any suggestions? I just want the system to sound better. I already have a Alpine Deck. I'm 40, so I don't want any "license plate vibrating" SHIT. Just something that would make Pink Floyd sound awesome. What speaker should I use in front? Is there any front speaker adapters that would make 6x9 work?? I want something kinda simple. I'm confused. TacoTunes make adapters?

Thanks for your help

There is a audio/video section you might find what I did not. Im waiting on a email from a guy named mrmarv. I emailed him today about fitting 6x9s up fron still haven't heard back. I'll let you know what I find out. I want 6x9 up front too.

I would buy something made to fit instead of trying to fit 6x9s in there. The stock speakers are 5x7 / 6x8. That is how the size is listed for aftermarket speakers. There are a few manufacturers that make those sizes. I went with some Infinity speakers 6822CF. Since the magnet is bigger than the stock speakers, you do have to do quite a bit of shaving of the stock speaker bracket/holder (picture with Infinity mounted on the stock bracket). Putting a set in the rear doors will help with bass also since the stock speakers are pretty wimpy.



I'm 40 also, but Floyd had bass content worthy of a sub. If you are interested, here are two boxes that will fit in the tiny area behind the double cab back seat.

Fits up to one 10" shallow sub (with some shaving)

Fits two 8" shallow subs

I just did kenwood excelon's in the front, they sound AMAZING! I'd get them again in a heartbeat. if you want a sub, just get an 8 inch, they are faster and don't hit as hard, so it will sound nice, and hit more often than my 12'' square, but won't hit as hard, but you say that's not what your looking for, so perfect!
