    $100 brackets? I've never heard of such a thing. If you are referring to the front doors, a set of brackets should be fairly easy to make.

    tacotunes.com says that most sized speakers do not fit with our tacomas. They make an adapter kit for front and rear for $100. Theres got to be SOME speakers that are a direct fit?

    My guy used the old front speakers somehow to mount the new speakers I bought. Infinity Kappa series. I never had to buy adapters. As far as the rears go, I did this

    I think the speaker brackets are the same for DC's.... when I did my first (cheap) install, I pulled the existing rings out and hacked away at the back side plastic that kills your mounting depth... basically a chop job and they should fit. My back speakers still currently are mounted this way.

    Yeah, I certainly wouldn't pay $100 for some speaker adapters. Do you need them for the front and rear? If you're handy with a jigsaw and can get your hands on some small enough pieces of 3/4" MDF, you could make them yourself. If you can't do that, PM me and I would be willing to cut you a pair on a router from the jig I have at my shop for a small fee (don't worry, I won't ask for anything even near $100, lol).
