    2010 reg cab 4X4
    I have a 2010 reg cab, and I'm getting ready to install a new Hu & speakers. I don't want to run a amp or sub. So I was thinking of using the JL Audio's Evolution C2 speakers (2-way 6-3/4" ) or Rockford Fosgate P1653 6.50 Punch 3-way Speakers. with the Pioneer FH= P8000BT or the DEH-P7200HD HU. Would like to know which Speakers would give me a cleaner sound. with out a sub or amp .
    Thanks for looking

    "A 3 way speaker has a _seperate_ tweeter, midrange and woofer. On a 2 way the woofer will play higher frequencies and maybe the tweeter will go lower. 3-way is generally better, but make sure u go with quality components. You can pick up non-branded 4-way 6x9 inch speaker for a couple of bucks, but they won't sound good. Your Audiobahn 2-ways will sound alot better. Just make sure u set it all up properly. And I hope ur getting an amp for ur front and rear speakers too. Not just ur amp. Just cuz ur head unit _can_ run them doesn't mean it does it well.
    I don't know why the cheap speakers are 3 or 4 way. It's probably cuz it's cheaper to make speakers with "odd response ranges", instead of having a 2-way speaker where the woofer has to handle higher frequencies.
    The RMS rating isn't really all that important on the speakers. Wattage does not equal volume. Check the sensitivity on the speakers. That's what determines how loud they'll play. It's more important to have an amp matched to your speakers (read: a powerful enough amp) than 500W speakers."

    Thank you for your help. But I have a Reg cab ,so I only want to use the speakers in the front door (6.5's) I really don't want to use a amp.. Just want a cleaner sound. Was hoping I could get that with the 3-way's and a better HU. I was told the Rockford Fosgats are good.If I do this, would I need to remove the oem Tweeters ? Or am I just wasting my time doing this.

    Subbing.... have reg cab too and some 6.5s laying around. Would like better speaker action and also wonder about just disconnecting oem tweeters and running the coax's in the doors.


    No rep for emo tweeters, lol................

    Kenwood has the clearest sound. take a lady friend speaker shopping with you. women can actually hear some higher frequencies than men. i tuned the system in my truck with her in it, even though she wasn't very happy watching me play with the truck, but since i got it dialed in she loves riding in my truck. the guys at my local car meet says the system in my truck is super clean. gotta love the ladies

    I know you already said "No amp" and I'm not trying to get off topic but you should look into the Vibe Audio Litebox 2 amp. It's super small, takes a small guage of wire (for its output) and it is super easy to connect. The thing is so small it will mount almost anywhere. They run around $150 or so. Just a thought. I've got a RC cab as well.
