    6.5" Shallow mounts for 96 T100

    I'm having trouble finding speakers that will fit the doors of my 1996 Toyota T100. So far I've been comparing the Polk Audio db651s and the Sony GT1625A. Any opinions on these two speakers, or others I should take a look at?

    Look at the Hertz Space set. There is nothing more shallow.

    that's pretty expensive, but not as bad as i thought.

    To the OP, best if you give everyone a budget to work with. And no Sony speakers

    Only if he goes with the sonys with the ribbon tweeter.

    One day, I am going to try them myself.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but I'm on a university budget, so was looking in the $100-150 range.

    I'm a bit confused as to why only shallow mount (or under 2" depth) 6.5' speakers fit. I have the extended cab edition, but the regular cab doens't have such restrictions, at least according to Crutchfield. I'm also pretty sure that the doors are exactly the same.
