    Best 4x6 speakers?

    hey guys, was wondering if you guys might suggest some good 4x6 speakers for my 02 silverado, I had 6x9's I was planning on using till I found out they wouldnt fit :S, I would like to keep them, and a friend of mine suggested trying to micky mouse the 6x9's in. I was thinking about doing a custom fiberglass inclosure for them in the door panels. Any suggestions? help will be greatly appriciated!

    if you are gonna make door pods, get some 6.5 mids or comps. i wanna know how the hell you think a 6x9 will fit in a 4x6 hole? as far as 4x6's try the infinity kappa plate speakers, however i recommend door pods and components

    Re: Best 4x6 speakers?

    hmm or that lol, I have Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.5's that I plan to use in the front, thats why I think I only need a good set of 4x6's for now then maybe later do a custom install for another set of 6.5's.

    you don't need rear fill. go with a set of components up front and call it a day

    Re: Best 4x6 speakers?

    you can fit the 6x9's in the rear doors if it is the extended cab where they open backwards, and not the 4 door crew cab. you can pop out the plastic rivits on the back of the panel where the factory 4x6 grill is attached to and remove that panel. cut out a hole to let the 6x9's sound through. recover that panel with some matching color grill cloth, and then reattach it. there's about a dozen different ways to do this, im sure you can figure it out. then use your trusty airsaw and enlarge the 4x6 hole into a 6x9 hole. mount your speaker, and you're good to go. and anyone that looks at it would never know that the truck didn't come that way.

    if that's over your head, i'd recommend the boston 746's as one of the all time best sounding 4x6 speakers.

    i Owned a set of those 746 speakers..they sounded probably just as good as my polk 6.5" comps off half the power.
