Okay i promise this is the last ? before i buy haha:laugh: . Now i have 5x7 openings and im not really looking for that much midbass or anything b/c its a reg cab truck and i wouldnt be able to tell that the little midbass...'ers would be hitting. Are the 6.5" cleaner and better in all aspects than the 5x7's or what? Thanks!

A round speaker will sound better than an oval one, plus it has more cone area:)

Also, when you make your ring out of MDF, it will give you a little more support around the 6.5's. Be sure to try and seal off between the MDF frame and where it will be attached to the doors.

With what? I mean i dont think they will hit hard enough to make it rattle any more than it does now. I need to take everything out sometime and do both doors and the back wall b/c its rattles like hell. Between the windows flexing like crazy and the back wall rattling, i think i just need to sound deaden everything soon.:naughty:
