What size are the rears? As for comps that shouldn't be a problem find something good, in your budget.

So do you want comps for front and rear? Honestly I would put comps in both, would have a great sound stage if set correctly.

Or we can find something cheaper, and you could get two sets.

If you wanna do two sets of something great... These would be awesome and it would be 400 bux plus some shipping. That would have some great sound though.

Actually the shop I used to work for carry's nothing but Focal for our mid's and Highs. They are one of the top for comps, they sound awesome. So do those MB Quarts another company right up there.

No dude most of these are two of the top companys for comp sets. If you want alot more mid take the Focals. They are awesome!

You could but your highs would probably be really bright and hurt your ears.

honestly, in a tacoma, you shouldnt need a high end rearstage... or even a rearstage at that... i would take the money get either a set of germaniums and just run front stage, or get a set of slc's and some coax's in the rear, i do suggest in putting more effort to ur front stage. also, the focals do get really bright, i run focals, and they're bright as heck, the tweeters get tinny, it has that "diamond cutter sound" the mids are really nice, but the tweets are too harsh for my blood... rainbow has really laid back and smooth tweets.

I have a 90 toyota pickup regular cab and had boston pro 5.2 in the door running off ads pq10 at 90x2 watts and 2 jl W0 10"(carver amp 120x2) in box behind seat custome box by shop(pretty **** for the $$$ now that I know more about car audio) back in 1991. back then speakers didn't need big wattage, that I know about, nowadays sub require min 300watts up to 1000 watts max

right now I am reworking it and seems endless work, with work, kids and this calfiornia heat, oh catching the upgrade fever delays the project.
I got alpine type R 6.5 in the doors now, with 3/4 mdf baffle(speaker depth is too big) and trying to fit 2 12" id overstock in the back, have prebuilt cheap box trying to make it work behind the seat. And the sub hits pretty good, got my garage door panels shaking or ratteling. The alpine sounds okay for the price but I think I am going back to Boston pro, need to deaden doors and back panels.

so I would say only get front components and find out what your door depth is beforing it starts hitting the window rails. my depth on the door was less than
1.5", added 3/4 baffle and put spacer on the window rail bolt(no power window) to move it back further for fitting my apline which is 2.75" depth.

working with toyota truck, car door depth is problem and ideal location for tweeter is problem, but maybe newer tacoma truck is better.
I think there is a ebay seller name taco something who specialize in selling speaker adapter so you can fit better speakers or components location.
will put up link later if I can find it.

just get a good componet upfront, good component amp, maybe 1 or 2 12" or 10" in box with mono amp. Then the trick is to balance the sound so that sub doesn't overtake the fronts and all you hear is booming bass. It depends if you want sq or spl sound.

OH, it never fails you always start out think you want cheap good system and before you know it you end up later buying $$$ quality stuff, which explains my selection in alpine type R, now I am stuck with it for the moment.

Mb quart was sold to maxsonic (hifonics) and the quality is just not what it used to be, i had the new mb comps and was really unhappy with how they sounded, i loved the older mb's from a few years ago but i would avoid the new mb line

i am currently using the low line of cdt audio comps and love the way they sound, very good mdbass, detailed mids and very smoooooth silk tweeters

Do some research on the speakers below and you should love the way they sound, they are higher cdt comps then i have and they should sound out of this world

Just a quick interjection-
I wouldn't run the tweeters for a second set of components in the back, or in the front. I would probably just run the rear midbass drivers if it were my truck, and have the whole component set up front still.
This being said, I also personally would avoid MB Quart. It's one company with a sound that people either love or hate, and unless you have listened to them and fall into the love category I wouldn't blindly buy. Go to a couple shops and audition some speakers. Diamond Audio, JL Audio, Focal all make great speakers that you should have no problem finding a dealer for in your area. Listen to some, and keep in mind that you can buy them online for about half of the price in the store, but you will lose the warranty.
As far as rear speakers go, unless you frequently have rear passengers I would consider not running them at all, and putting your money in the fronts for the time being and possibly add them down the road. I'm not running rear speakers in my GTI.

I love the way your bashing them...:D In all honesty yes they were bought, But they still are made at the MB quart warehouse in Germany and will never change. Buying a company out is really nothing, they just pay for your supplies, etc. MB is still the same and always will be, they are just now owned. That does not mean Maxxsonics is producing them:crying:
