    Are you sure the speakers are 6x9? According to my quick Crutchfield search, 6x9 speakers won't fit.

    If you are worried about getting speakers that will fit, you can order from Crutchfield and they will include adapter brackets with your purchase.

    I have 6x9 Polk Audio speakers in my front doors. The front doors will accomodate 6.5" or 6x9 depending on the speaker adaptor you select. Unfortunately, there is no bolt-n-go speaker for Tacomas. You need to have adaptors too. The general consensus around TW seems to be 6.5" component speakers. In hindsight, I wish I would have done the same. The Polk 6X9 is huge. I had to lengthen the adaptors to get the window to clear the magnet when lowered. Major pain.

    My suggestion would be to get the 6.5" components with adaptors. Having coaxial speakers that low in the doors causes highs to be hidden.
