    ^^^^^ what he said.

    you can get some aftermarket mounts from tacotunes.com or you can make them yourself. keep in mind you will also need to have spacers to convert the factory 6x9 to a 6 1/2" hole for the woofer.

    here is a pic of my door

    and a close up of the tweeter mount i made

    It seems that most people believe round speakers sound better than 6x9 speakers. Personally, I don't have much of a preference.

    thanks for the replies. most cars nowadays come with a mid and a tweeter, but i wouldnt exactly call them components. for those who have done this, is there a specific tweeter size that you must go with in order for it to fit in the stock housing, or must you create your own "pod" so to speak? also, crutchfield lists our maximum speaker size as a 6.5" (06 prerunner double cab). i thought the access cabs were the only ones with a 6x9 up front. thanks

    if you dont plan on going with a sub, i would definitely go with the 6x9s (if they do in deed fit) as you will get far better bass response than 6.5" coaxials

    My '07 double cab came with 6" X 9" in the lower front doors with a separate tweeter up higher. It also came with 6.5" speakers in the rear doors and a 8" sub behind the rear seat passenger side.

    Hope that helps.

    Do the front door speakers (mid and tweeter) have seperate wiring from the radio or are they spliced off in the door? I was wondering because most component systems come with a crossover. Where have you mounted it? And wired it?

    Confirmed :)

    The originals are run in series inside the door with a small cap on the tweeter. I typically mount the aftermarket crossovers on the amp rack or under the front seats.

    Nothing wrong with 6/9 but their simply not made at the quality level that most of the " round" speakers are made at. Anyhow, not to debate that, as everyone knows best.

    Id personally go single 8 inch per door. I have some 8s that knock your socks off and people cant believe its a single driver coming from the door.

    I used the stock tweeters as a mounting plate. i just removed the driver and some metal and mounted polk audio component tweeters in them. The custom mounting plate from tacomtunes is a much easier option.

    If you are a little handy a mounting plate can be easily fashioned out of ¼ inch mdf with only a few tools, just use the stock tweeters as a template.

    I tried to contact TacoTunes, but no reply. Maybe I will try Mr Marv. Although I dont mind making a set. The black ones in the posted picture above appears to be made of some light gauge metal or thin plastic. They look great and doable.

    You got lucky. They aren't known for being the best company to work with.


    Mr. Marv > TacoTunes any day.
