    Speakers for truck.......

    I need help deciding on what speakers and amp to buy. Its an 01 toyota tacoma double cab. It has 4 (5x7/6x8) openings. Id like to keep it all one brand. My budget for this is $1000 or a little more if necessary. Thanks

    Re: Speakers for truck.......

    I've got an 04 d-cab taco, here's whats working good for me. Boston Acoustics SL60 comps in the stock locations in the front doors, Image Dynamics IDQ10 sub, RF P3001 300wx1 sub amp, RF 200a4 (I think..) bridged to 100x2 for the comps and an Eclipse cd5435 HU. No rear speakers, the location is so bad that IMO they only hurt the sound. I love the truck but it's a very challenging ride to get good sound into.. Let me know if you need any ideas for a sub install, I've got the IDQ behind the driver side back seat but it wasn't an easy box to build.

    Make some baffles out of MDF, get yourself some Rainbow Germaniums for the fronts, and a nice 4 channel amp (at least 125w rms per channel; Eclipse XA4000, Alpine PDX-4.150, or a JL 450/4 would work nicely) to biamp them with. Ditch the rears... you won't need them.

    PM PremierAudio here. He's an authorized dealer here in Omaha and will set you up nicely (should be a little under $500 shipped).

    Here is Rainbow's Germanium page:

    or you could do this, that DejaWiz stated above!!!

    but i know theres pre-fab speaker plates that will allow you to go from a 5x7/6x8 and put a 6.5 or 5.25 set in i believe, or you can always make one, but im not a expert fabricater so ya might wana ask someone else about constructing these, but i think your better off with using i think MDF and making some

    6.5 comps amped IMO will sound better than a 5x7/6x8 speakers, the round 6.5s and 5.25s IMO sound better than the oval speakers

    Loud and clear when properly powered and installed. But be careful... The clarity could induce random drooling.
