    Which Size to go with?

    Im about to get some speakers for my 99 f150. They fit 5x7 or 6x8. But i found some brackets on the internet to adapt to 6.5ins. My question is should i get 2 sets of 6.5in or one 5x7 and one 6.5?

    what would sound better? Im guessing 6.5

    6.5's up front, whichever you like in the back. Rearfill usually isnt that important.

    Save the money on the second pair and buy a set of 6.5 components for the front and dont worry about the reat fill

    would going with 6.5 in the front and 5x7 in the back and only hooking an amp up to the front do any good?

    put some real good 6.5" comps in the front and in the rear you can use 6.5" or 5x7" caox, the front stage is what is most important for a qood quality sound.
