    Ok so I have a 2005 access cab I want to replace my speakers. I was thinking of doing some door speakers and a sub but I dont wanna spend that much and to do it right I would need to spend some serious cash. I wanted to see what you cause thought would be a good replacement for my door speakers and I can run them without any amps of any kind? I was looking at crutchfield but I just dont want to get something and underpower it. So what do you guys suggest???

    define "that much"

    It's a relative term... you could mean under 500 or under 1000, so give us a clue. Also, if money is your only concern just get stuff you can afford, the rest doesn't matter really right? If you're only looking to spend 100-200 then you won't be able to buy replacement door speakers and add a sub.

    IMHO, TacoTunes charges you out the ass for things.

    Get a set of 6x9s for the front doors, and order a set of 1" adapters. The brand speaker is your preference.

    This link is a perfect fit for the speaker adapters: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/6x9-...19QQitemZ310218832153QQptZCarQ5fAudioQ5fVideo

    For the rear speakers, all the ebay after market ones I've dealt with have no worked.... so I made my own out of the stock speakers. Or if you're handy, go get some MDF and make your own

    but are there specific speakers that would require a amp to power them correctly. and as for price I am hoping to replace all the speakers for around 300-400 nothing more than that

    $600?! For just the front speakers, tweaters, and bolts too...

    Comparison on mine:
    All 4 door speakers in the truck - $140 (best buy sells "last years" speakers cheap)
    Subs - $270
    Deck - $380 (again, last years model. retails for $600)

    I bought a damn nice deck. You could pick up a good deck that'll do the job for you for $120... meaning that if your entire setup was close to mine, you'd be at about $530, for a complete sound system.

    As for that, essentially EVERY after market speaker sound better when they're amp'd. It gives them their full limit of power, however, I have Pioneer speakers in every door of the truck, and not a single one of them has been amped. And my truck is still loud as shit.

    I am mainly looking to keep my stock head unit and replace the door speakers without amping them and still getting a better quality of sound than stock so I guess I just buy 4 speaker mounts and get 6 1/2 for the front and 6/9 for the rears and just pick whatever brand i want and plug and play

    Essentially yes. For the speaker mounts, I made my own for the 6.5". I bought 3 different sets that were "supposed" to fit, and didn't. The 6x9's, however, were a perfect fit. And you will get better sound quality out of after market speakers. in my opinion, the stock speakers are pretty good, but pump out too much bass. If you are gonna get the speakers, you may want to consider a new deck as well. All the stock head units have is Bass and Treble if I remember correctly. No control over the mid range what-so-ever.

    Even a $100 after market HU should be able to give you enough of an equalize to dial it in to where you want

    Edit: The 6x9's are actually in the front doors. 6.5's are in the rear

    I honestly dont know a thing about speakers and amp and all this stuff I am tempting to just go to a shop and tell them to replace everything and install it

    You'll save $150-$200 if you install it yourself. There are a hundred different tutorials on this website on how to install your soundsystem. It's incredibly easy man. I've installed 30+ for my friends and myself

    i'd recommend 6.5" components in the front and 6.5 coax in the rear. If you want to run off deck power the JL tr series is a great choice for low power and they sound very nice. That is what i always recommend to my customers when they don't want to run an amp
