So 3 out of the 6 stock speakers in my truck are blown, so i might as well replace the whole lot. The front door speakers are a 5 1/4" that is a one piece plastic baffle. After doing some measuring i have figured that i can put an 8" midbass that has less than 4.5" mounting depth.
Now the main question is, will the larger driver be worth the extra fab work and added cost? After a little bit of searching it seems that the options for 8" drivers is limited due to the majority being 8 ohm or are more midrange and not midbass. And i have found a few woofers that have a narrow frequency response that cuts off at around 300hz. Since i will only be doing a three way active setup, i need a broader frequency response unless i went with a woofer and a small full range driver to fill in the midrange and high range? The vehicle is a 2007.5 chevy 2500hd crew cab 6.0L.
