Speaker Sizes?

Does anybody know what the door speaker sizes are?I know the back window ones are 5x7's/6x8's will that size work in the doors or is it different?

Yup, doors and rear deck are both 5x7, 6x8. You can however easily modify to fit 6x9's in both spots.

I'll post a how to next week when I get a chance to put my 6x9's in the rear deck. I'm gonna use a dremel and just cut my rear deck to fit. I have a how to for replacing front speakers with 6x8's, just too lazy to make a write up for it. I also have a how to on center bezel removal and stereo removal for 01-04 stangs, and plan on getting a how to on 05 stangs here soon.

And the 6x9's will give you a better range out of the speaker because so many ppl make them. You can get a much better speaker for a better price out of the 6x9. I'm running Pioneer Premier REV series 6x8's in my doors and my REV series 6x9's should be in here real soon.

What are you running them with? The stock radio? It sucks..I'm pushing my speakers at the moment with my stock radio and it sounds like stock speakers. Get a radio with a good built in equalizer *cough pioneer cough* and control it from there to make your speakers sound so much better.

Yeh...all it's done for me is explode..sony sucks, fosgate has started sucking, alpine sucks, lower line mtx sucks, pioneer has started sucking, I guess I'm just an extremely picky person when it comes to my car.

What is this system made up of?

I hate Sony with a passion. Their cd players are decent just not my kind of thing. Nick's cd player and Nates are cool but other than that I will never buy sony speakers or amps

I've just never had any luck with Sony...O well. I either install them for someone and it gets stolen that night or they die within a year. Go figure. I know where my original 1994 Pioneer single disc player is and know for a fact it still works and plays cd's quite well.

I was looking at speakers at SoundDomain and when I put in my car they had a selection of 6.5" speakers for the rear side panels. I didn't even know I had speakers in the side panels....or do I?and if so how do I get to them?

eh 1200 watt - more like 300w rms which is all that matters. I hate how Sony hypes up their power rating on their subs.

My System will consist of:

Front Speakers - Polk Audio 5-1/4" Components
Rear Speakers - None
Subs - (2) Kicker CompVR Dual 2Ohm 300rms
Sub Amp - Kicker KX600.1 600x1rms @ 2ohms
Component Amp - Kicker KX150.2 60x2rms @ 4ohms

yeah 1200 is the peak wattage, but they sound damn good. i believe the rms is around 400 on those.

Im not sure if I should get another amp to run the speakers....if i do i would need to get a capacitor so it won't kill my alternator....what would you guys do?Just run the speakers normally with subs(plus subs amp of course) or run two amps one for the subs and one for the speakers?

two amps one for subs one for speakers will give you the best sound. Capacitors are a waste of money. You shouldnt have a problem with the alty with stock pullies.
