    I just bought a 2010 access cab and I am doing some research on changing out the wimpy stock stereo. When I was messing around in the truck today first off I noticed that there are NO SPEAKERS in the rear doors. This sucks pretty bad..... are all the new ones like this I thought they had at least 5-1/4"s back there?? I probably will end up just cutting some 6-1/2's in back if i have the mounting depth clearance to work with.

    The other thing i noticed which is the weirdest thing I have ever seen for a stock stereo(not in a good way either). I was messing with the radio and put the fade all the way to the rear and..... Wait i still hear music... wheres it coming from??? Right above me WTF!! there are 2 I don't even know what size speakers(Small i know that) right up underneath the headliner above the driver and passenger seats. Does anybody have pics of the exposed speaker setup up there or a link to some?? Know what size speakers they are and how the hell they are even mounted?? Any info would be appreciated. I checked out crutchfield's website and a couple others and I'm striking out for any info. Thanks

    Yeah I'm a dumb ass there's a whole audio video section i should have posted in.

    They have to be something like this they can't be more than an inch or so deep. I never would attempt to change them and they most definitely will be disconnected when i replace everything. Garbage setup :mad: The one thing I am very let down by with the truck so far.

    The rear speaker mounting holes are still in the sheet metal on your rear doors. I mounted a set of 6.5s there, just had to cut some holes in the plastic inner panel (which are covered by the grills that came with the speakers). Then you have to run your own wires, but thats not hard.

    I wouldn't even bother with rear speakers in an access cab. I'm running just a pair of amplified components in the front and it's plenty loud enough.
