    Will my music sound any better by replacing just the Factory speakers? I have the Rosen Multimedia system and I believe its a little louder than the factory stereo. I'm wondering if I just replace the tweeters, front and rear door speakers to improve sound.

    I'm going to do just that. Boston Acoustics SE95 2 ways in the front doors. Pioneer 6 3/4 TS-A1781R 4 ways in the Access doors. I'm thinking this will be a big improvement over the stock speakers without major changes or breaking the bank.
    The Pioneers are no longer available, I had them in a 2000 Taco, but the number changes to another speaker on CrutchFields web site.
    I'll repost when completed. :cool:

    might sound a little better but wat u can do is get a 4 channel amp and wire the 4 door speakers to it. i have a 400 watt amp with 2 channels going to the door speakers with direct wiring from the amp to the speaker

    yeah exactly. i have an access cab so its only going to 2 door speakers and it was a bit of a pain getting the wire thru that rubber sleeve between the cab and the door but i made it happen eventually lol. but yeah positive and negative wires running straight from the amp to the door speakers

    Polk DB6501.

    Mid/woofer, tweeter, and crossover with high freq 3db gain/cut switch.
    I used the Tacotunes adapters, fit like a glove... just have to jumper the tweeter connector.
