    Howdy Again Guys,

    I have a 2006 Tacoma and just put a new Pioneer AVH-1300 Head unit in, now I'm finally getting around to installing the Rockford Fosgate speakers. Rear doors went in fine, my question is for the fronts. I bought these speakers for the front doors to replace the lower units:

    I bought these tweeters for the upper doors:

    My Question; Do I Need These:

    Shocks. Pegs. Lucky.
    Those 6x9s are going in the doors yeah? They're coax - have tweeters built in. I wouldn't even bother with the 2nd tweeter unless I installed the coax and still didn't have enough high end.

    If however you do decide to use the tweeters, then yeah, you need a cap on them. That's all that's in that package - a pair of overpriced (probably 6.8 uF ) capacitors wrapped in a fancy shell.
