    Front speakers for 2002 4Runner??

    Just purchased a 2002 4Runner and would like to run a set of components up front. Doors are 6.5". Anybody know the max depth I can go in the front without running into any problems? Anybody already have a setup in a 4Runner? Looking to spend about $225 max with shipping. Suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

    Diamond hexes for $200

    I run these and they make my ears ring after listening to just one song, they are well worth the money.

    Yea I ran diamond hex's in 2001 in my integra and heard the same thing. You could probably get a set of nice focals for that price or image dynamics. I'll list a couple sets for you.

    Yes, it is true. The company sold out and they really are not the same speakers.

    I have a 99 4 runner, I don't know whether there are any changes that would effect the speaker placement.

    A couple of things about mine:

    The depth was 2.5". The window rail makes for sort of a narrow fit.

    There is plastic "baffle" that did was too narrow for my speaker's basket. I had to take those out and have new baffles made out of MDF to accomodate my speakers. I painted those bishes with about 10 layers of paint and then applied sound deadener on them to make them water resistant.

    I can tell you personally that the Hex comps going for $200 now are not the same quality as the ones that used to cost double or triple that years ago. These $200 Hex comps of today sound hollow and lack sq. The company that purchased Diamond Audio a few years back is misleading consumers by making the Hex look exactly the same but totaly changing the quality and sound of the product.

    I put a pair of Boston Pro 6.5 in the doors of a 2000. Worked great.


    Also, I had to mount them as far forward as posable, the grill comes in contact with the kick panel.

    Awesome info guys. I currently have a set of Pioneer Premier 520 PRS's that I think I'm going to get a baffle made for. Seems like I would have to do this with any speaker anyways. Thanks again.
