    I have a 2006 Double Cab Taco and I was wanting/NEEDING to replace all my door speakers, any recommendation? Whats the difference between a 2 way and 3 way speaker? What sizes do I need to get?



    Also I am about to put a pioneer in dash dvd unit in to replace the factory shit. It is a flip up dvd player. Will I have any problems with that? Its practically brand new and its free, otherwise I would buy a complete in dash system...


    I already have 2 10" subs behind the rear seats in a custom box, I have them wired to the factory head unit through a line output converter(i think thats what its called lol)


    PLEASE HELP

    Hybrid Audio Technologies make phenomenal speakers.

    Check them out here:

    http://www.hybrid-audio.com/

    Plus they offer a trade up program which allows you to trade up your speakers (if you desire) and get 60% of the original value.

    Hybrid Audio has hit the Car Audio world pretty hard with cars equipped with their speakers winning IASCA® World Championships. I don't know what your price range is, but they are worth a look.

    Edit: the trade up program works if you buy Hybrid Audio speakers and want to trade them up... not trading up OEM speakers or any other brand.

    6x9's in the front and 6.5's in the rear are the OEM sizes.

    Ive alway had good luck with JL and Alpine speakers in the past.

    I got a deal on some Alpine Type r's for the front and rear that will be installed in my 09 shortly.

    pretty much any speaker you buy you will want to get a mounting spacer. Infinity is pretty nice. kicker and JL are very good too.

    I really like my JL Audio VRs. I sent the specs to Mr.Marv and he took care of the rest. No problem with fitments and the quality was great.
