I need some help with my Door Speaker install.
I just gotten a 2002 ford explorer xlt a couple days ago and want to put a system in it.
Online it says it will fit 5x7 and 6x8 Door speakers.
I cant find any good door speaker that are In these sizes. Can you all help?
Should I Try to find a adapter so I can do 6.5s or what?
Also should I put components in front in back or just front and then run coaxials in rear.

Run 6.5's.. You can add rear coax's if you want but if me I would save that cash and put towards better speakers and amp.

Use an adaptor if you have to. You can even make your own.

I already have a decent 4 channel I got a brand new kicker 650.4 for 150 dollars a couple months ago but should I do comps in front and coax in back and how would I wire up the tweeters that come with the comp

Depending on budget, I'd get a decent pair iof decent components for the front, worry about rears later.
Either run the tweeters active or just wire them with the crossovers that come with them

You'll have to cut the doors for 6.5 speakers. But 5 1/4 will fit with adapters

They can yes. But not as loud as the 6.5 I'd cut the doors

With a custom baffle he could avoid cutting

You can make or buy 3/4" rings to push the 6.5 Mids out to make them fit in the 5 1/4 area
