heres the deal i have a ford ranger, 5x7s all the way around, i hate the SQ of them even my digital audios, should i just fiberglass some 5 1/4s into my doorpanel? or get kicks? or what i really want a good sounding SQ system, i've thought about puttin the alpine type s components in there but i'd really like a reveiw from you guys first, any suggestions will be appriciated, thanks

You can buy a 5x7 to 5 1/4 adapter from crutchfield...kinda pricey for a piece of plastic..here's the link http://www.crutchfield.com/S-GLhbeSbIyYQ/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=103200&I=142SA68 I drive a ford also...anyone know how to fit 6.5s in there??

options:
Get crappy stock size... (please never do this)
Make the crappy stock size smaller so it is atleast round!
Cut...
Make a fiberglass speaker pod...
Make a fiberglass kick panel!
BOTH... This is tricky though due to different distances from your ear type deal... you need to hire an engineer for this one and you need some $$$... or just live with the consequences... I would say just do one or the other :) (speaker pod or kicks)

Depending on how lazy you are and how much money you are willing to spend... there is an option for everyone :)
