I have a 2002 silverado that i blew the factory 4x6s in. would you guys put some more 4x6s in or should i try to make a plate and put in some 3.5s or 5 1/4s if they will fit.

I'd go with option #2. There is a much larger selection of 5.25's, 3,5's or 4's that can fit in there than there are 4x6's.

thanks for the fast response. what would be a good material to use to make a plate to cover the 4x6 hole?

mdf, 3/8's or 1/2 inch will do nicely, and give you a solid base to mount a speaker to.

Some companies make 4x6 plates with a midbass and tweeter in them. Bolts right into stock locations.

That'd be a good option too. It'll save ya the hassle of having to fab something up...

Clarion had some really GREAT plates back in the day. Got pretty loud and clean. Didn't have the best midbass, but not horrible.

These are NOT those, but something I found on a quick search of ebay.

Cheap price. http://cgi.ebay.com/INFINITY-NEW-4x6-SPEAKERS-2-WAY-PLATE-6412CFP_W0QQitemZ250234738476QQihZ015QQcategoryZ14 939QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Polk DB461 plates sound awesome for what they are, I have a pair I can sell you if you want.
