    Any experiences with replacing factory 6x9 with a better 6x9?
    Geek Squad dude states better to replace factory and stay away from components and it the 6.5.
    Got me all confused now.
    Thanks.

    I would stay away from Geek Squad unless he really knows Tundras. Might want to ask how many Tundra installs he has done. I have Infinity components and very happy with them. I have not upgraded the amp yet. I was going to do the amp first but thought I would switch the order and do the speakers first. The tweeters make a big difference. You might get more bass out of the 6x9s.

    Probably because they don't sell speaker adapters and his computer tells him they don't fit. I think the only qualifying question those guys are asked when hired is, "Have you ever sat in a car and listened to music? Good, you're hired!"

    The stock 6x9 aren't exactly the same as regular aftermarket 6x9. Generally speaking, using a 6.5 with an adapter bracket is the correct approach

    What happened to the 6 x 9? Back in day, in the 80's (Dating myself) the 6 x 9's were BOSS. They were the "go to" or before subs it seemed. I remember the Pioneer's 6906 (3 way) or 6907 (4 way) with an amp was all you needed. LOL Kenwood and Jenson had some that were ok, probably others.

    Are the 6 x 9 not ever a "go to" anymore?

    Don't forget the Clarion 100-EQB-2 5 Band Graphic Equalizer. In my late 70's HS circles you weren't chit if you weren't running the Clarion.

    I've done extensive research on 6x9's and ended up going with the AudioFrog GS690's in the front doors. My entire system is being installed and should be done by tomorrow or Monday. From everything i've read they blow the competition out of the water at that price point.

    Geek Squad “F’ed” up my other Tundra. I had to take it to a real professional audio shop to fix the mess of hat they made. It is better to go to a stand alone professional audio shop for all your audio needs. They usually have people there that Install many different audio components on many different vehicles. So, they have much better experience and skill levels than the Best Buy Geek Squad people. Do your homework and find the best Installers in your area to do the job.

    One thing to note! One you go away from factory speakers on your door(s), they will have to modify the doors by cutting away the area that housed the original factory speakers, so it is important to get it done right the first time.
