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
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
