    Completely stock and new to me.
    Like the title states, new to me 2011 Doublecab non JBl. I just a had a new HU installed (Pioneer DMH-W4660NEX). Budget is a concern moving forward. Looking at replacing the front door speakers next. Thinking I better stay with a full frequency range speaker setup and later IF there is ever an amp involved I could use crossover settings to reduce bass frequencies to them. Thinking component and leaving the tweeter in the stock location. I will be doing at least front door sound deadening while in there.

    I see Focal gets recommended. Is the IS690Toy full frequency?
    Other recomendations considering I may never install an amp and sub?
    What am I missing?
    Affordable sound deadening material? Noico 80mil maybe?


    Thanks!!

    Components would be replacing the woofer and the tweeter. You're thinking coaxial probably.

    Something efficient. Stick with 6x9

    Ahhh, little clarification. I would like to use component speakers and replace the factory tweeter yet utilize its location.
    Thanks!

    If you are going to go with a component, they will come with a lower door driver and a tweeter that will fit in the factory location. Deck power will not be enough to push a good set of components properly but if you dont plan on loud volume, then they would suffice until you add an amp which will bring them alive. The more efficient the component set is, the better they will sound with lower wattage. Your radio probably puts out 20watts rms which will distort components and high volume and damage them.

    The Focals, make a plug and play component set which would be a good start and they have a direct fit coax for the rear.

    Let me know how those C1-690s sound when you get it finished. I was thinking about installing these also.

    Finished the install of the Noico 80 mil on fromt doors and install of the JL Audio CL-690 fronts. With the Pioneer head unit all is well. Sound is clear and mid bass is plenty. It does however miss that subwoofer kick!
    Thanks for the help.

    I noticed the samething. Changing radio and adding sound deadening made a big difference. I havent swapped out my stock speakers yet but the better HU and deadening did bring them alive and the mid bass sounds really good. A small sub after that would probably suffice for a lot of people. Next i'll be swapping out for some components and adding an amp
