My son has a Ford Ranger with 5x7 speakers and he wants components so he can locate the tweeters up higher on the doors. All I can find for 5x7's is coaxial.. does anyone know if comps exist in this size?

We already tried using 6.5's on a custom adapter plate but the interior door panel is so close that the high rolled surround hit the grille and tore the speaker. And the adapter was only 1/4" thick. He's considering major door surgery (cut, snip, weld, etc) but I told him I'd find a simpler solution..

Dunno what his budget would be, so at this point I'm open for ideas.

JBL has the GTO8606C 6x8/5x7 2-Way component set for $199 and under. Infinity has the Kappa 680.9cs 6x8/5x7 set for $299 and under. Infinity Reference 6830cs is $249. There should be other options as well, such as Image Dynamics, but the price goes up.

I figured the kid had done that and came up empty... bad assumption on my part. I've found quite a few out there. He's leaning toward MB Quarts.
