is everything else stock or did you need to get an amp too?
I'd like to know if this is true, because I think they sell the same speaker in a 6x8I thought you could fit 6x8s in the doors.
Do you mean metra harnesses? Which ones to buy and why?crack any plastic inserts or tabs. Just get a pair of Mitra harnesses,
Same speaker, they come with adaptor / spacer ringsI'd like to know if this is true, because I think they sell the same speaker in a 6x8
Yes, sorry for the typoDo you mean metra harnesses? Which ones to buy and why?
Thanks for the info...why didn't you go for the 6x8's though? Felt the stock amplification wouldn't take advantage of the bigger speaker?Same speaker, they come with adaptor / spacer rings
Yes, sorry for the typo
72-5600. The car is set up to accept the harness from the speaker. You could scavenge the recepticles off the stock speakers or hack your wiring, but neither is worth the headache for an $8.95 adaptor (for the pair). I got the harnesses here:Metra 72-5600 Ford Speaker Harness Pair New | eBay
Ahh, ok thanks. And you only replaced the front speakers and left the rear speakers stock? Did you adjust the fade more to the front?The 6x8 IS the same speaker as the 5x7 and is adaptable to either cutout
Anyone have experience with the Polk audio db571s? They fit front doors and rear deck and aren't too badly priced.
For that price, I would go with components haha :bounce2:For a about $30 more these look to be darn near audiophile-grade and 2x the power handling in case you decide to add an amp in the future. Great reviews online too. One site voted it the #1 5x7 out there:

They sell for $180 a pair on Crutchfield in their "Signature" collection:
JL Audio C2-570X Evolution™ Series 5" x 7" 2-way car speakers — also fit 6"x8" openings at Crutchfield Signature
I think I'm going to go with these, but question: How do you figure out which Metra adapter goes with which speaker?
