    Re: Comps For in a Lightning

    I have an 02 lightning and I am making a custom plate out of 1/4" mdf that will mount in the stock 5x7" hole that will have a 5.25" component set mounted in it. I am either going with CDT components, or Diamond Audio Components. The stock rear speaker location on our trucks is horrible so I would just go with components up front.

    I can, but it is going to be a while before I even start them due to the lack of money. You can by the kicks for our trucks, but I don't think they blend in very well with out interior. All you have to do to make the plate I was talking about is take a piece of mdf, either 1/4" or 1/2" if you have the room, cut a 5x7" piece out of it that will mount in the stock speaker opening, then cut a hole that is about 5" in diameter to mount the 5.25" component mid bass speaker. Then either next to that, or somewhere else up the door or on the a pillar, cut a hold for the tweeter.
