I just picked up an 05 4Runner and I am in the process of swapping out the factory deck for one of the newer Alpine HU with the iPod Full Speed control. However, I am also thinking about replacing the factory speakers and get something nice, but I'm not interested in amping the front speakers and the wife put her foot down on a sub and amp.
So basically I need to swap out those speakers for something will sound as good as possible running off an aftermarket deck's amp and add some bass to the proceedings. I am used to a nice little 10" MTX sub and amp, so I want as full of a range as possible though I know it won't be able to do everything the old system could.
The trick here is that not only am I running the speakers off the deck, I have the choice of putting in 6.5s or 6x9s in the door. Now I am pretty sure I want to go with components (which I think makes running it off a deck that much more difficult), because I want the best sound quality possible.
CDT makes a 6x9 component that supposedly goes sub 50hz and the sensitivity is a pretty decent 91.5 dbf. But I've always heard a round speaker gives the best fidelity, plus the price is a bit better.
What do ya think?
