    Blasting it and sounding quality are definitely two separate topics. Wouldn’t you agree?

    Anyone help me out just for clarification?

    Do we need to buy speaker adaptors for front AND rear door speakers if we are INSTALLING 6 1/2 component speakers?

    I just just just finished installing one rear door and called it quits. I reused just one door for testers since I ordered the ebay adapter for under $20. the door panel clip doesn't catches at the back, as I believe the 6 x 5 sits a bit higher in the OEM adapters....

    You can reuse adapters, and even the speaker harness if you have a dremel and with time to get creative......

    cut the cone out, and with an electric sharp saw, cut about 1 inch of the top of adapter......
