Here are the brackets that allow you to put 5 1/4" speakers in the front instead of the 4x6

quadratec doesnt sell nice audio equipment. they sell sony and low end kenwood. they sell crappy speakers, sony, kicker, vdp...


my idea of "no limit" is spending $2000 on a basic setup(headunit, speakers, and amp(s) to power the speakers)

so, still a no limit cost?

iv'e been looking at the pioneer MVH-P8300BT headunit. i run infinity kappa perfect components in front and in the rear powered by a new Sundown Audio SAX-100.4 to replace my alpine amp i had that was way underpowered. so that should be a nice start.

are you wanting to add a sub in the rear or just the basic heaunit, speakers, amp.

Should have went with the JL Audio component seperates if you wanted a JL tweeter also. I used to have the VR component set and they were pretty great with about 200 watts to the set.

I installed them yesterday, they sound great. I'm gonna get the tr400-cxi for the front dash speakers to match. I have 2 10" jl audio sub woofers if I decide to go all out with the sound system.
