    I have a pair of 5.25 speakers (Focal) from my previous vehicle that I want to install in my 2007 Reg Cab. There is not many options since I dont have rear doors. Where would you put them? I have 6.5in speaker for the normal location.

    I would put them behind your seat. I helped my buddy do this on his ranger

    I would put them up for sale. If you'd 6.5's are good, then there really isn't a need for additional speakers driving in the same frequency range.

    What type of speakers are the 6.5's? Do you think that the smaller Focal's might be better?

    Ya if your 6.5" are not focals and you have or are going to put a sub in, you might be better off with the focals and a mounting ring.

    They are both Focals. I was thinking of putting them behind the seat but I might have to move the seat a little forward. There isn't to much room for a sub in a regular cab since I put the recovery gear and straps behind the seats.

    As long as you have a really nice set of front components there really isn't a need for rear speakers...at all

    I'd sell them. I'm sure someone would be happy to take them off your hands.
